Porcelain began trending in Europe before it quickly made its way overseas to the United States. Americans have grown to love the functionality and beautiful elegance of this material offered at economical prices. It makes a great addition to bathroom fixtures and, more frequently, kitchen countertops. At WS Granite Tops, we carry an abundance of aesthetic options, including large porcelain slabs that come together seamlessly for a beautiful finish and will leave your home glowing.
While porcelain is distinctively different from the other products we provide, it is a great option to install in your home due to its durability and scratch-resistance. It is perfect for both interior and exterior application, whether you plan on installing it on shower walls, fireplaces, flooring, paneling, or countertops.
The fabricators at WS Granite Tops create porcelain countertops from non-porous, ceramic clay that contains several different minerals. To bring out the qualities of porcelain, the material is then baked at extremely high temperatures, ranging around 2200-2659 degrees Fahrenheit.
Porcelain is an incredible addition to your home, offering so much more than its beauty and functionality. Like granite, porcelain is incredibly heat-resistant since it is formed in extreme heat.
Compared to quartz and granite, porcelain has phenomenal resistance to scratches. It is not likely your porcelain countertop will chip or crack because of the hardness and durability this material provides. If properly maintained and preserved, countertops made of porcelain should resist wear for an extended period of time.
Unlike marble, porcelain is UV-protected and won’t damage or fade in color when exposed to sunlight. At WS Granite Tops, we specialize in the fabrication of porcelain countertops and have a variety of slabs to choose from. Our professional fabricators create Laminam, Infinity, Sapienstone, Neolith, Dekton, and Geoluxe slabs in several different colors for you to choose from.
While Porcelain and Granite countertops are very similar in terms of durability, there are some important differences between the two materials. For one, porcelain accepts defeat when it comes to ceramic knives and isn’t very resistant. Aside from that, granite and porcelain display solid strength against dents, chips, and cracks.
Both granite and porcelain countertops are resistant to extreme heat, making them the perfect installation for kitchens. They are unlikely to produce dark burn circles from hot pans and other kitchen appliances.
Compared to granite, porcelain slabs are more economical and offer a larger array of designs and colors to choose from.
At WS Granite Tops, our professional fabricators make it our mission to provide high-quality customer service and a personal touch larger firms simply can't provide. We specialize in fabricating and installing porcelain countertops for both commercial and residential projects.
