Usage of Silestone
Silestone®is particularly suited for use with bathroom vanities and kitchen countertops. Because it is durable, non-porous, and non-toxic, it is safe for use in food preparation. These features also make it a recommended material for an environment that is always in the presence of moisture and humidity. Its heat resistance also makes it the ideal stone for fireplace surrounds. Silestone® is hardy enough for both interior and exterior conditions. However, there is a tendency for the color of dark Silestone®to fade under direct sunlight, so if you use it for an outdoor kitchen, you should choose light colored stones.
Benefits of Silestone Countertops
One of the best things with Silestone® countertops is they are easily customizable and available, given that it is manufactured stone. You can give it all the features necessary to make it the ideal material for these functions, and the makers of Silestone®countertops have done just that.
Additionally, Silestone® is non-porous, so there is no need to seal it to prevent staining or growth of bacteria, mold, or mildew on its surface. It is non-reactive, meaning it is not affected by contact with acid or other common stain-causing liquids such as coffee, vinegar, oil, makeup, lemon juice, or toothpaste.
Silestone® countertops and other products are given a manufacturer’s certified warranty of 25 years. What’s more, the warranty is transferable, always a good thing when selling a home.
