Sourcing Quality Quartz

The first step in crafting impeccable fabricated quartz is sourcing high-quality raw materials. Quartz, a naturally occurring mineral, is extracted from mines around the world. It is then carefully chosen for its purity, color, and texture. Our team of experts at 5280 Stone meticulously handpicks the best quartz slabs to ensure that every countertop we create is a masterpiece.

Slab Formation

Once the raw quartz is selected, it undergoes a transformation process that involves mixing it with resin, polymers, and pigments. This mixture is then bound together using advanced technology. The resin acts as a binding agent, giving the countertop its strength and ensuring its durability. The mixture is then poured into molds of various shapes and sizes and are carefully calibrated to achieve uniform thickness.

Cutting and Shaping

After the slabs have cured, they are ready to be cut and shaped according to the specific measurements and designs requested by our clients. Our skilled team uses precision tools and machinery to create flawless edges, curves, and cutouts, ensuring a seamless fit for your kitchen or bathroom.

Polishing and Finishing

To achieve the distinctive luster that quartz countertops are known for, the surfaces undergo a meticulous polishing process. The slabs are polished using a series of progressively finer abrasives until they achieve a mirror-like finish. This not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the countertops but also makes them resistant to stains and scratches.
