Why Choose Quartz Worktops?
Quartz worktops are non-porous, scratch and stain-resistant and a popular choice with our customers. They are fabricated the same way as granite worktops using our high-tech, computer-aided cutting equipment. They have a number of advantages over granite that attract our customers:
They generally carry a manufacturer’s guarantee to be non-porous so they don’t have to be sealed periodically like natural stone.
Quartz worktops are maintenance-free and easy to clean because of their slightly matt surface.
Quartz worktops have four times the flexural strength of granite and double the impact resistance. They also outperform marble and limestone.
Because of this flexural strength, quartz can be installed in thinner slabs, meaning less weight on your countertops.
Larger sections, reducing the number of joints on the surface, is easier to work with than with natural stone.
You can cut quartz as thin as 7mm, which makes it perfect for large-format wall cladding. It can also be used to cap an existing worktop.

The quartz manufacturers we use generally work to an EU-standard patent that combines 93% quartz and 7% resin binders and pigments. One of our preferred quartz worktop suppliers is Caesarstone because of its manufacturing and quality standards, warranty, after-sales care and environmental policies. At Henderstone, we work with six different quartz worktop manufacturers which enables us to provide over 150 different colour choices as well as alternative finishes such as leather or satino.
If you are having difficulty selecting a colour you can use our product selector here which allows you to compare across all the manufacturers. If you still aren’t sure which is best for you, you can contact one of our Henderstone team for expert advice.
