Porcelain

We’ll Make Your Countertop Project Easy
Great for both indoor and outdoor use, there’s not much that porcelain can’t do. Check out our variety of slabs to see what works best for your remodel.

Porcelain Countertops

Porcelain countertops are mostly made up of kaolinite, or ‘china clay,’ along with other minerals like feldspar, metal oxides, and silica. When all of these materials are combined under extreme heat, porcelain is created.

Since porcelain is a man-made material, there are plenty of color variations to choose from. In your remodeled kitchen or bathroom, porcelain is sure to stand out in the best way.

Care and Maintenance

Porcelain is a very low maintenance material. If you don’t want to spend much time with upkeep, then this is the choice for you.

Porcelain is nonporous, which means that you don’t have to worry about sealing it, and it can be cleaned with warm water and a damp cloth. But even though it’s nonporous, we recommend cleaning up spills right away to ensure your countertop maintains its good looks.

Durability

Since porcelain is formed under extreme heat, it has a predisposition for heat resistance. You don’t have to worry about scorch spots if you set a hot pan down on its surface. As for scratches, its resistance is comparable to quartz or granite. It’s pretty tough, but it’s still a good idea to use a cutting board when chopping food.

It is possible for porcelain countertops to chip, especially during the installation process. (This is why a professional installation is so important!) But if they should chip during everyday use, repairs are possible. You can easily fix a chip by painting the chipped area to match the rest of the slab, waiting a couple days, then filling in the chip with clear epoxy.

Location

Porcelain looks great inside, but it also has huge benefits to being used outside. Since it’s a nonporous material, you don’t have to worry about damage from liquid, and since it doesn’t contain resins, you don’t have to worry about the color changing over time.
