Ultra Compact Surface Countertops

Ultra Compact Surfaces are a revolutionary new material created from a propriety mixture of glass, porcelain and quartz. These high density materials are completely non porous, non reactive and won’t scratch or stain. They can withstand high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking. Hot pots and appliances like crock pots can be placed directly on the surface with no worry of damage. Due to its incredibly versatile nature, ultra compact surfaces can be used in both indoor and outdoor settings. In addition, these materials typically come in extra large sheets so can be used in large projects to minimize seams. Some examples of ultra compact surfaces include Dekton by Cosentino and Outdoor Quartz by Caesarstone USA,
