Quartz Countertops featured in Downtown Renovation

Quartz Countertops featured in Downtown Renovation

“Downtown Looking Up” written by Cathy Still McGowin in the October issue of Birmingham Home & Garden details the exciting transformation of the 18th floor of the John A Hand Building. The building originally was the American Trust and Savings Bank Building and although the building has seen many renovations over the years, the 18th floor still had the typical look of an office space from the 1912 era. Staying true to the historic architecture while transforming this space to a residence was a challenge but Mike Gibson of Appleseed Workshop was up to the task. 

The beautiful living space is a mix of old and new. The home has exposed brick, original flooring and repurposed office doors. Walls of bamboo cabinets for TV, storage and display space, a luxurious soaking tub, and beautiful countertops of white quartz are some of the new elements that blend beautifully with the cool industrial look and feel of the space. The white quartz countertops installed by Surface One are Q by MSI in the color “Snow White”. The stunning views and the location add to the beauty of this lovely space. Surface One was pleased to be part of this downtown Birmingham project.

What is Silestone Quartz?

Silestone is a brand of Quartz countertops that are manufactured by Cosentino.  Quartz surfaces are a man-made product that is engineered using real quartz crystals blended with a small amount of polymer resins.  This engineering process creates a beautiful surface that is often lower-maintenance than other comparable natural stone surfaces. Silestone Quartz can be used for countertops surfaces, wall cladding and other design functions.

Bacteriostatic Anti-Bacterial Technology

Silestone Quartz is made with a revolutionary anti-bacterial protection called Bacteriostatic Protection, created by Cosentino. The innovative bacteria resistant technology has led to an entirely new category of countertops known as bacteriostatic countertops. The Silestone formula is based on silver ions and prevents the propagation of bacteria making it the perfect choice for kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

Durable and Scratch Resistant

Silestone quartz is resistant to scratches, easy to clean and durable. Non-porous and highly resistant to stains such as coffee, tea, wine, lemon juice and other potential kitchen spills make this a beautiful, as well as highly functional, answer to your new kitchen. One of the hardest materials in the world, silestone has polyester resin elasticity and is formed using a vibrocompression system during production.

Greenguard Certified

Silestone is an earth-friendly product that has received the Greenguard certificate proving that Silestone does not emit substances that are harmful to the environment and can be used safely in enclosed areas. Silestone has also been awarded the “Greenguard Children & Schools Certificate”, for safe us in schools and universities.

Cannes Creativity Award

The Cosentino Group’s promotional video of “Silestone®, Above Everything Else” received a Golden Lion Award at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity. This short video offers insight into the world of Silestone’s inspiration and design.

Go Green with Vetrazzo Recycled Glass Surfaces!

Vetrazzo-Inlay-2-500Surface One has found their clients enjoy earth friendly Vetrazzo because it is comprised of eighty five percent recycled glass and features unique colors and patterns not found in other surfaces.

Vetrazzo offers ultimate style flexibility, allowing you to choose the pigments and glass for a custom counter uniquely tailored just for your kitchen or bathroom. This exquisite surface material is truly a work of art. Made of recycled glass and a binder of 15% modified Portland White Cement, additives, pigments, big bright chunks of glass and other recycled materials, Vetrazzo is the choice of many homeowners and commercial businesses.

Guilt-free, more than 75 percent of the content in Vetrazzo is from post-consumer recycled content, keeping waste out of landfills.

The recycling process and the variation in the glass source make the color, pattern, size, shape and shade that cause each counter top to be exclusive.
