You need something moisture-proof and something that takes a beating well. Of all the different types of countertops you can install, engineered stone stands out. But even among this category of countertop material, there are more choices to make.

A2Z Granite, a local San Antonio granite and stone company, is here to help you with this basic guide to the different types of engineered stone countertops.

Cambria Quartz Stone Countertops

Cambria is a name-brand premium engineered quartz stone material. The engineered stone is made by combining 93% real quartz with various resins and binders to form the countertop material. It is a premium countertop material because it’s durable and easy to clean. Cambria countertops are made right here in the U.S. and they come in many beautiful styles.

HanStone Engineered Quartz Countertops

HanStone is another name-brand you may have heard of relating to engineered stone countertops. The manufacturer uses 93% quartz to formulate a beautiful, durable countertop material. You will be able to select from 37 different colors and patterns. There is a full range of options that would enhance any home whether it’s traditional style or modern.

Silestone Quartz Countertops

Silestone uses 94% real quartz material to make their name-brand engineered stone countertops. The additional quartz content adds more realistic features that are similar to the depth of color and shimmer you see in real granite or marble. This is why Silestone is a very popular option and why it’s a great idea if you want countertops that are easy to maintain and clean.

Engineered stone countertops are often considered much more durable than granite and other hard stone countertops. Natural stone is a porous material, so it will need to be resealed regularly to avoid stains. Engineered quartz, on the other hand, never have to be resealed. You don’t have to worry about moisture damage.
