The final cost of a Portobello quartzite countertop depends on the size of the pieces you require, the location, and the accessibility of the property for its installation, dictating the number of worktop installers your project needs.
Portobello quartzite comprises 100% raw minerals and includes natural quartz, feldspar, biotite mica, and garnet. There are no additives, colourants or resins. Due to the lack of calcific minerals, quartzite's surface doesn't etch when exposed to acidic substances.
One of the critical features of Portobello quartzite is its longevity. According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, a natural stone worktop such as quartzite can last up to 100 years.
Yes. Unlike manufactured stones such as quartz and engineered marble, Portobello quartzite comprises 100% natural minerals and is suitable for outdoors applications. In addition, the lack of resins in quartzite worktops ensures that their colours don't fade or alter even when you install them externally.
Yes. Portobello quartzite, like any natural stone, is porous due to its surface's micro-permeable nature. When a stone is porous, it can absorb liquids through micropores and its interfacial texture. Therefore, you can seal Portobello quartzite with an inexpensive stone sealant by spreading the transparent liquid over the surface and letting it rest for a minimum of 12 hours.
Repeat this process every 18-24 months, depending on how much traffic your quartzite surface receives.
Yes. If the chip or scratch in your quartzite worktop is over 5 mm deep, this part of the worktop becomes more susceptible to discolouration. You can repair chips on quartzite worktops by applying colour-matched stone resin, restoring the non-porosity in this area. A professional worktop installer may also buff the top layer of the stone to remove superficial scratches, restoring the original shine of the quartzite's surface.
