Caring for Your New Silestone Countertop

It’s a type of engineered stone, which is usually crushed quartz mixed with pigments and polymer resin, formed, cured then processed like natural stone.

When engineered stone kitchen counters suffer damage, the repair should be able to match the rest of the counter exactly in color, texture, and strength. If an engineered stone counter does suffer damage, it’s best to call in a professional to fix it.

Scratches are not as noticeable because the pigment has penetrated throughout the slab. Engineered stone holds up well even when screaming hot pots and pans are placed on it. However, manufacturers warn that very hot items not be placed on a countertop of engineered stone, because it can cause damage. Hot items should always be placed on a trivet.
