There are a few alternative quartz products on offer. Some of these we have used in the past. History and experience has proven to us that a high percentage of quartz slabs shipped in from the Far East, for example, are of a poor quality where it is almost impossible to get the facing edge of the material to be polished. It would not be wise if you select a quartz product other than those detailed below from a.n.other manufacturer. With these low grade products, chemicals are applied by dodgy stone mason to the face edge, to make the product appear like it has been polished. In a short duration of time, this will fade leaving an unpolished face edge and sometimes considerably worse with scratches and saw blade marks that were not previously visible. These poor quality products really should be avoided, especially when you consider that these products will only alter a quotation by a token value. Essentially, if you select a really cheap quartz option, you will in the main, simply be choosing quartz sheets where the quartzite content has been decreased for fabricators to offer low prices or worse still for the stone mason to make greater profits. 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 materials were available we would use them. It might well be there is a reason why we don’t offer these now!
To obtain the most inexpensive estimate around for your quartz tops it would be worth looking at our range of most popular colours. These tones offer a choice suitable for virtually any kitchen with over 60 variables. The striking disparity between the most popular colours and the brand route is simply that the most popular colours are the products that we use on almost every day of the week. This translates to that if your work necessitates the use of less than a full sheet, you will only pay for what you have actually made use of and the left over materials will be utilised for another job. If you decide upon a brand name, you will be charged for all of the sheets purchased to carry out your works as we will not be able to make use of the left over materials as we do not use these options every day of the week. Another reason of using the most popular colour options is that this range is available to obtain an immediate online quotation.
