What Is Neolith?

Are you considering a little home renovation project to beautify your house or perhaps enhance its appeal and value for a possible sale? If so, then you may have already realized that new kitchen countertops can be one of the most cost-effective ways to add value to any home and improve its overall appeal. If new countertops are in your home’s future, you might want to forsake the standard granite, stainless steel, quartz, and even marble surface options and consider neolith instead.

The Next Generation of Countertop Materials

Neolith is one of the latest innovations in architectural and interior design, and offers a variety of benefits that many homeowners will appreciate. Neolith is not an ordinary stone like granite or marble, but a composite material that provides strength, durability, and functionality while still preserving that much sought-after aesthetic appeal that every homeowner needs.

Neolith is made up of three parts:

  • Granite compounds, like quartz or feldspar. These elements provide it with its strength
  • Natural oxides, for color
  • Silica and glass minerals to provide chemical stability

These three component elements are all mixed together and placed under high heat and pressure to form the Neolith material. The process produces a building material that is strong, durable, and resistant to discoloration from staining agents.

The Versatile Choice

Because of its positive characteristics, neolith is a versatile material that can be used for everything from kitchen countertops and bathroom vanity tops to floor, wall, and cupboard coatings. It comes in nearly three dozen colors, two different thicknesses, and lower costs than many other natural stone building materials.

Once installed in the home, neolith countertops can provide a lifetime of aesthetic beauty and usefulness for any homeowner and his or her family. The surface is not only attractive, but resistant to scratches, stains, fire, and many other elements and events that could easily ruin other countertop materials.

Potential Drawbacks

Despite those benefits, neolith is not always the perfect option for all homeowners. This is especially true for do-it-yourself projects, since it really takes an experienced installer to handle this material properly. Amateurs can easily crack the neolith or chip and otherwise mar the edges.

If you’re renovating your home, neolith can be a great choice, providing you with cost-savings, and the many benefits described above. Just be sure to rely on professional install experts to ensure that your neolith kitchen countertops live up to your high expectations.
