Quartz Stone Companies & Installation

More and more homeowners are choosing quartz surfaces for their kitchen countertop surfaces. In fact, they are selecting quartz for more than just kitchen counters. Bathroom vanities are also making the cut when it comes to quartz surfaces in the home. Even showers are constructed from quartz. The growing popularity of quartz as a hard surface choice in the home is no secret. In addition to quartz, many other kinds of engineered stone are also becoming popular. For example, installing solid surface installation is growing as well, although the popularity is with a different group.

Weha USA Installation Equipment

Weha provides a number of tools and machines for installing quartz surfaces. These tools are basically like the ones for natural stone types, but they have different construction. For example, quartz polishing pads are designed so that they will not burn the quartz when they are used to polish it.

The tooling for installing quartz is not the only similarity, the install process is the same as well. It is as follows:

  1. Having the proper tools - if you are installing the quartz, you will need to be sure you have these tools and supplies before you begin installing the quartz. However, if you are having it installed, the fabrication professional has most likely already invested in these tools and has them for the install.
  2. Measure your space - measure out the stone and mark the slab(s) for cutouts like the sink hole and the faucet holes. This can be tricky and will require more tools. In fact, the additional tools are specifically made for this purpose.
  3. Setting the quartz - after measuring the area to see where the cuts need to be made, lay out your quartz on the base without any adhesive. This will allow you to get a good idea of how well the quartz will fit.
  4. Install your backsplash - if you have elected to have a backsplash installed with your quartz surface, you will install it after the surface has been installed. Choosing the proper backsplash for your quartz surface plays a key role in the appeal of your project.

The installation of quartz material is a process that will take some time. Because of this, you should plan on using more than one day if you are performing the install yourself. Even if you are having it installed by a professional, it is good to know about the above process. Some of the tools that will help the installation process along include the following:

Tools for Installs

For installing quartz, Weha has a large range of installation tools. When it comes to installing quartz, be sure you have the proper equipment. Using the right tools can make your install go smoother. Here are some reminders for installing quartz & stone surfaces.

Be sure you have the right diamond blades that are designed to cut quartz slabs. Even stone that is harder than quartz can be cut with the Grey Leopard diamond blade; quartzite as an example. It is by no means the only blade that we offer that will cut quartz surfaces, but it does well. Besides having the right blade, it is good to have the following tools as well:

  • Core Bits
  • Edge Profiles
  • Polishing Pads

As you can see, choosing quartz may not make the process seem that much different, but the tools you will need may be. So research what you need and take inventory of what you have.
