Prestige offers various options of countertops for our clients: postformed laminate, quartz, and granite. 

Below, you will find our expert explanation of the countertop materials we have to offer here at Prestige.

Postformed laminate is a 100% man-made product. It is a high pressure laminate surface that is bonded by performance-grade glue to particle board. We have over 250 colours available through our supplier, and they are available in a variety of edges and finishes.

Here at Prestige we stock 17 colours, available at all times.  

Laminate is not heat resistant, not stain resistant, but is the most cost effective option for our clients. It is easily dented or damaged by hot plates or scratches from knives. However, it can last upwards of 20 years under proper care. 

 

It comes from our supplier in 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12 foot pieces, then cut, mitred, and capped by our countertop experts. Install is often performed by our professionals but laminate is available in supply only. 

Engineered quartz is a man-made product but contains 91 - 97% natural constituents. Engineered quartz has colours, binders, and resins added for colour and consistency. 

Quartz is non-porous, chemical resistant, and does not require annual sealing. Quartz is stronger and more durable than granite. Colour selection is larger, more consistent, and many more whites, greys, and simple patterns can be found in quartz. We have over 100 colours available. 

Quartz is our more popular choice of stone, and can last a lifetime under proper care.

 

Stone is special ordered, custom designed and shipped on pallets to our manufacturing facility already sized to fit. Install is performed by our professionals and is not available for supply only. 

Granite is a natural, mined material, and cut into slabs. 

Granite is a very dense material but it is porous. If untreated, it can absorb liquid and stain. It is sealed prior to leaving manufacturing, but does need to be resealed every 9-12 months by the client*. 

Granite is heat, scratch, and dent resistant, but it is possible to crack. 

Granite colours are often darker and busier patterns but no consistency is guaranteed. We have over 30 colours available. If necessary, we can provide photos from our manufacturer of slabs for client's choice. Granite can last a lifetime under proper care.

 

Stone is special ordered, custom designed and shipped on pallets to our manufacturing facility already sized to fit. Install is performed by our professionals and is not available for supply only. 

*With the exception of our Sensa Granite line  by Cosentino. It is treated directly from the quarry in Spain and does not require any sealant of any kind over its lifetime.
