Interested in Upgrading to Zodiaq Countertops?

Granite, quartz and corian manufacturers are always on the lookout to produce new and exciting stone lines. Zodiaq is one such product that has witnessed a steady rise in sales over the past decade. Created by DuPont, these specialty quartz countertops look simply magnificent and perform flawlessly.

Zodiaq countertops are actually comprised of roughly 90 percent quartz with the rest being a mixed composition of trace binder materials. This also includes a small portion of acrylic resin and various infused colors. DuPont has its central mining operations in the Canadian Thetford Mines, and the stone they extract is used in multiple residential and commercial applications, but the bulk of it is sold to make kitchen countertops.

When presented with multiple options, one of the first questions our customers ask is what the benefits of a particular stone product are. The key advantage the Zodiaq line has over its competition is its non-porous composition.

Since the material is synthetic (due to the infusion of quartz with the trace materials), it is not nearly as susceptible to water damage or the staining and discoloration that can result from spills. Although aesthetically at the top of the list, limestone, marble and granite countertops must be sealed every couple of years to maintain their shine and natural shine.

For those who prefer a more solid look, Zodiaq slabs are known for their consistent color patterns. You will also be happy to know that DuPont offers a 10-year warranty on all of their countertops!

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
