Our name – Warrington Granite & Marble – goes back to the days when almost all the kitchen worktops we produced were made of natural stone. Natural stone doesn’t necessarily mean what a geologist would call granite, of course, but it is a useful name to distinguish naturally occurring rocks from some kind of man-made or synthetic material.
Anything stone-like which has been made / stuck together in a machine is called an engineered stone. These days this term covers a range of materials, but a large group of them are called Quartz. Quartz makes great worktops, and comes in a huge range of colours and prices.
Quartz worktops are made from particles of a variety of materials – naturally occurring quartzite or silica, man-made glass or mirror, or recycled and modified materials – which are effectively stuck together with a polymer resin to form, an engineered stone with many of the properties of natural rock.
As well as purity of colour, saturation and vibrancy can also be achieved with quartz. In the early days of these products a vast range of very bright colours was available, including amazing pink surfaces from pale flamingo to stunning fuchsia, purples, strong blues, through to orange, apple and lime green. Many of these were also available in mirror fleck versions.
More recently, with a general trend to softer, more natural colours and materials, and massive progress by quartz manufacturers in emulating real stone, the picture has changed. Almost all manufacturers make marble-look stones, but some brands, like Caesarstone and Silestone, are especially known for natural looking marble.
In order to be able to offer our customers the widest possible choice in terms of colour & price we have a range of stock colours through our own WGM Quartz range (for quick delivery and cost efficiency), but also supply a huge range of quartz worktops from leading manufacturers including Silestone, Caesarstone, iStones and CRL Quartz.
