From countertops, backsplashes, and vanities to shower seats, fireplaces, tables, and more, there are so many different kinds of applications and projects a fabricator can use quartz for. And yet, selecting the exact type of quartz to use can be a bit overwhelming with so many brands out on the market. In order to meet and even surpass their clients’ expectations, fabricators have a lot to consider when choosing the right quartz. After weighing all the options, so many of them have decided upon Alleanza Quartz.
“Why do fabricators love working with AQ?” you ask. We interviewed Showroom Manager Ashley Pantaleo of Zicana to find out. Working for a company with two decades of experience, Ashley has noticed a lot of changes in the industry as well as stark differences between quartz brands and what to be on the lookout for when selecting one to work with. “It’s been really important for Zicana to align ourselves with brands that focus on their process and their product from start to finish, so we know that not all quartz is created equal…” said Ashley. Let’s hear what else she had to say:
BOOKMATCHING SETS AQ APART
Many quartz companies do not offer bookmatching due to the lack of factories with manufacturing equipment able to produce reflected designs. Alleanza Quartz has partnered with factories who are able to create precise mirror-image bookmatches for 5 of its Monarch Collection designs. This unique process can be used to create many stunning compositions in a variety of applications, especially backsplashes and feature walls. Two-slab and four-slab combinations are available to work well in small and large spaces.
Zicana has worked on a plethora of projects including large-scale commercial spaces such as Prime 1024 in Roslyn, NY and Limani Grille in Commack, NY. These restaurants feature the use of quartz in multiple applications including full bars, table tops, and floor to ceiling columns, as well as waterfall countertops and bookmatching on feature walls and fireplaces.
BEAUTY AND FUNCTIONALITY
Over the years, Zicana has noticed more and more clients being drawn to transitional design styles that combine modern and traditional elements, including marble veining. As a result, they are venturing out from their previous comfort zones when selecting patterns and textures. AQ has many designs to offer that embody traditional marble flow, movement, and coloration, while easily complementing modern elements. Each slab can be crafted into any stylistic shape like traditional counters with soft, rounded edges or more modern counters with straight lines like the sleek waterfall edge.
In the past, many customers had to choose between something that looked good with the style they chose and something that would actually be able to handle the use it was intended to endure. Alleanza Quartz gives them design and durability, so customers can enjoy their finished space and use it as much as they need without fear of premature deterioration.
“IT’S REALLY HELPED OUR CLIENTS TO NO LONGER HAVE THIS QUESTION OF BEAUTY OR FUNCTION. YOU CAN NOW HAVE BOTH AND YOU CAN HAVE THEM WITH ALLEANZA.”
