Dekton and Porcelain
Engineered quartz stones are made with a combination of natural quartz and other raw materials that are extraordinarily hard and resilient. These characteristics combine to create an ideal surface for kitchen countertops, bathrooms, flooring and wall siding. These man-made surfaces have outstanding properties for kitchen and bath design applications. It offers beauty similar to natural stone in a wide range of colors and extraordinary textures.

Natural stones like granite has long been the premier choice of designers and builders for countertops due to its beauty and durability. We deal with many types of natural stone qualities and brands. Among those, we love the Sensa brand due to its revolutionary protective treatment that provides high stain resistance to natural surfaces. The treatment is applied to each slab of natural stone at the manufacture's modern facilities. This protective treatment has a 15-year transferable warranty, highly protected against common household stains.
Dekton is sometimes confused by porcelain when is not. They are close in appearance though, with similar properties. Dekton boasts excellent resistance to high temperatures and can be installed indoors and outdoors, thanks to its UV-resistance composition. Hot utensils, electrical appliances, pots, and pans can all be placed directly on the surface without causing any damage. Domestic utensils won’t scratch it.
Porcelain is a super dense material that is nearly completely impervious to stains, heat, UV rays, scratching, chips, and cracks. Europeans have been installing porcelain countertops for quite some time now, however, only recently gained notice in the United States.
