Often, customers ask “how does Silestone compare to Zodiaq” when they are in the market for countertops. The fact is that both manufacturers provide excellent customer service and quality products, but there are some differences between them.
Popularity of Silestone
Silestone has grown increasingly popular over the years, in most part due to an antimicrobial barrier added to their products to prevent bacterial growth. This barrier discourages not only bacterial growth, but also mold and mildew.
With regular cleanings and maintenance on your Silestone countertops, your family and friends will have better protection from bacteria and other harmful substances that may be a problem with other types of countertops. A division of the DuPont company, Zodiaq brings the quality and customer service that DuPont is known for providing.
Silestone is committed to environmental protections. During the manufacturing of their products, the company focuses on reducing their energy consumption as well as waste. Silestone pride themselves on being an eco-friendly business, dedicated to reducing their carbon footprint as they create stunning countertops.
Silestone offers 60 different color options with two different textures. You can choose from patterns or solids. Silestone also has accent pieces as well as backsplash to match the countertops you choose. If you are looking for countertop for your bathroom, Silestone has eight varieties designed specifically for use in the bath.
Zodiaq does not offer quite as many color options as Silestone with only 30 to choose from. The colors available from Zodiaq are different than Silestone, so if you find one you like in the Zodiaq collection, you may not be able to replicate it in a Silestone collection.
Both Zodiaq and Silestone offer ten-year warranties on their products. Although it is rare for quartz countertops to have problems, if one should arise while the counter is under warranty, you have peace of mind that it will be corrected quickly by either company. Both Zodiaq and Silestone have outstanding reputations and have created many stunning, beautiful looks in almost every room in a home, whether it is a kitchen, bath or other area. The main difference between the two is the antibacterial treatment offered by Silestone, something that is not offered by Zodiaq.
