SINTERED STONE

Sintered stone is manufactured using recent technological advancements which mimic the processes which form natural stone. While natural stones like marble and granite are formed over thousands of years, sintered stone slabs take just a few hours. Minerals and stone particles, like the ones found in porcelain or granite, are carefully selected for quality, colour and texture. These particles are then subjected to extreme heat and pressure – just like they would be deep in the earth’s crust where granite is formed. When the process is finished, the particles are bonded together permanently, without the need for resins or bonding agents.

What is sintered stone like?

To the untrained eye, sintered stone is almost impossible to distinguish from natural stone – unless it’s been made in some unlikely colour or pattern! Sintered stone is tough as rock and is also: Weatherproof, Unaffected by heat or cold, Waterproof, Stainproof, Very hard to chip, scratch or damage, Easy to clean, Food safe and hygienic, Non-porous – doesn’t need sealing

PORCELAIN

PORCELAIN

Porcelain is a man made material manufactured from a type of heavy clay made from a mineral called kaolinite, or “china clay”. Kaolinite normally is composed of feldspar, silica, and mineral oxides. Porcelain slabs are made from kaolinite heavy material that is then coated with a pigmented glazed and fired at a high temperature. Glazing pigments are added during the slab fabrication. The slabs are made to have consistent color all the way through the product and can have veins that are similar to marble or granite.

Wide Range of Colors | Numerous patterns & Finishes | Large Slab sizes up to 5’ X 10’ | 30% Stronger than Granite | High durability & strength | Lightweight | Versatile due to thickness | Can be installed over existing countertops | No Sealing Required | Waterproof | Heat Resistant | Recyclable

SOLID WOOD

Wood countertops are popular in kitchens for the warm organic texture and function. Grothouse wood kitchen counters can be used safely around stoves and sinks. Our kitchen counters are often sealed with food safe oil finish that is safe for direct chopping and permits the counter to be sanded to look like new when desired. Durata® wood countertop finish is a truly permanent finish that does not require ongoing applications or maintenance. Durata provides a waterproof and protective finish similar to a clear coat on a car.
