Dekton: New Countertop Surface at Lesher

As you know at Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile we are always on the leading edge of innovation and what is trending in countertop surfaces.  We are proud to announce we are certified for fabrication and installation of this leading edge product called Dekton.

What is it? The latest and greatest  innovation for surfaces such as  countertops, walls, floors, and siding either indoor or outdoor. According to Cosentino, the manufacturer, “DEKTON IS A SOPHISTICATED BLEND OF THE RAW MATERIALS USED TO PRODUCE THE VERY LATEST IN GLASS AND PORCELAIN AS WELL AS THE HIGHEST QUALITY QUARTZ WORK SURFACES.”

Here are the DEKTON  advantages in a nutshell:

High UV resistance
Highly scratch resistant
Resistant to stains
High resistance to fire and heat
High flexural strength
Resistant to abrasion
Resistant to freezing & thawing
Three thicknesses available:  8 mm, 12 mm, 20 mm
Large sheets available approximately  10′ by 5′ (3200 mm. x 1440 mm. )

Kitchen Countertops indoors or outdoors

It is the perfect material for hard use of countertops:  indoors or outdoors.  According to Dekton,  “Dekton allows greater potential for installation in one piece with no cuts, no joints and no limits. It has the appeal of a completely uniform surface, which fits seamlessly into very different design styles.”   So it can look seamless and will stand up to the extreme weather outside and hard use inside.

Bathrooms

Using DEKTON for the bathroom sounds like a smart idea since water absorption and porosity are virtually zero.  The manufacturer states, “Their textures and colors are an endless source of inspiration for the design of water-related areas, we’re talking about DEKTON, its possibilities are endless.”

Flooring inside or outside

Because of all of the product advantages, flooring is no big deal for Dekton.  Plus you can use such large sizes in your application that it’s virtually seamless depending on the size of your area.

“DEKTON floor coverings are a good alternative for areas with high requirements as far as performance and design are concerned, both indoors and outdoors. The revolutionary DEKTON properties allow the designer total freedom to design the format to work, ignoring limitations currently found with other materials. The solution is suitable for installation in office buildings, apartments, and high traffic areas where durability and abrasion resistance are two important factors.  The application is similar to the placement of pieces in traditional formats but with the advantages of a large format,” according to Dekton.

Siding inside or outside
