What is a Granite Worktop?

A granite worktop is a type of countertop made from granite, a kind of igneous rock.

Granite is quarried in large slabs and then cut into smaller pieces that can be used for kitchen worktops in Chester.

Granite contains interlocking crystals which are randomly arranged and of various sizes.

The crystals’ size depends on how quickly the magma cools and solidifies.

Top Benefits of Granite Worktops in Chester

When it comes to kitchen worktops in Chester, granite is one of the most popular choices.

Easy to care for

Granite is very easy to care for. Simply wiping the surface with a damp cloth will keep it looking new.

If you do happen to get a stain on your granite worktop, it’s easy to remove with a little bit of elbow grease and a mild cleaner.


Granite worktops are incredibly durable and long lasting, making them an excellent investment for your home, and they are durable because of their natural properties.

They are sufficiently able to bear a lot of weight due to the rock stone surface being the heaviest of any remaining regular stones.


They are heat and scratch-resistant, meaning they can withstand everyday use without any damage.

The high heat resistance of granite is due to granite’s mineral content. And the minerals in granite are tough and resistant to heat and abrasion.

This makes granite an excellent material for worktops and other surfaces exposed to heat and wear.

Enhances Property

Granite is also a natural material, so it has its own unique beauty that can add character to your kitchen.

There are hundreds of different colours of granite worktops available from around the world, and we encourage you to come to our offices to look at what we offer.

What is a Quartz Worktop?

A quartz worktop is a kitchen surface made from quartz, a type of engineered stone.

It combines ground quartz with a resin and bonding agent to create a firm, strong surface.

Quartz worktops differ from granite worktops as they are manufactured.

Naturally occurring quartz minerals are ground down and mixed with additional by-products, creating a durable kitchen quartz worktop as an alternative to granite.

The crystals contained within quartz are more uniform due to the engineering of the stone.

When the quartz is coarsely ground, a more flecked appearance is achieved, but when the quartz is ground down to a refined substance, a smoother appearance is achieved.

Top Benefits of Quartz Worktops in Chester

Granite and Quartz Worktops share similar benefits. Both materials have strong durability, and both are scratch resistant.

Appearance – Quartz has a natural beauty that is perfect for any kitchen design.

Low water absorption – This material has low water absorption, making it perfect for a kitchen worktop.

One of the significant differences between granite and quartz worktops is quartz is prone to heat damage.
