There are a few alternative quartz products available. Some of these we have fabricated in the past. Our experience and historical use have highlighted that a high percentage of quartz products shipped in from the Far East, as an example, are of a low grade where it is almost impossible to get the facing edge of the product to be polished. Be careful if you choose a quartz brand other than these detailed underneath from a.n.other manufacturer. With these poor quality products, chemicals are put on by the stone mason to the leading edge, to make the material appear polished. In a short duration of time, this will wear off leaving a dull face edge and occasionally much worse with scrapes and lines that were not previously visible. These low grade materials really should be avoided, especially when you remember that they will only change a quotation by a token value. Essentially, if you choose a dirt cheap quartz material, you will in the main, just be choosing quartz sheets where the quartzite element of the product has been reduced to enable cheaper pricing or worse still for the stone mason to retain more money. The quartzite reduction decreases the materials expected lifespan. This renders it considerably easy to scrape and is likely to have a dull finish. To put this in straightforward, common sense, if cheaper, top grade products were obtainable they would already be part of our product offering. It might well be there is a just cause why we don’t offer these now!
