Your Best Kitchen Countertop Choice
This year’s pandemic has brought all kinds of changes to our way of thinking as homeowners but none likely more obvious than the surfaces we clean. Seriously, have you ever washed your hands or countertops as much? As a residential contractor company in Vancouver, BC, FairTradeWorks has been continuing to serve clients throughout Covid-19. Mike Lukonin, Construction Operations Supervisor at FairTradeWorks says, “many homeowners have been building new structures and have changed their material choices halfway through the pandemic asking for more durable hard surfaces that will be easily disinfected.” Here are FairTradeWorks top 3 recommendations for countertop choices:
#1. The winner this year has been quartz. Lukonin adds that, “without any of our vendor’s pushing us to promote this product, we have noticed this nearly indestructible counter top material stands up to its claims of being non-porous, sturdy as well as luxurious. The maintenance on quartz is minimal and a resealing of the surface will prevent stains and bacteria growth. More of our client’s use quartz now than any other material.”
#2. If you are eco- friendly, you might look into composite countertops This product is formed from recycled papers and fly ash. Like quartz, composite countertops can resist stains as well as the growth of bacteria. This tile material is also heat resistant and durable resisting scratches.
Recycled glass countertops are also another great green alternative to consider for your hard surfaces and your eco conscious family. These surfaces come in a variety of colours and designs, can withstand a lot of wear and tear like scratching as well as heat.
Terrazo has been around for more than 700 years but when it was first developed from specks of glass, granite, stone and marble and then polished to a fine sheen, it was created to be frugal and ‘use up’ the remaining fragments of the natural stones. Now it is trendy and green
