Installing Quartz Kitchen Countertops

Bob looks on as workers instal a solid-surface countertop called Zodiaq (from Dupont), which is made of natural silica, quartz, and polymer.

Clip Summary

The man-made stone countertops are easier to care for than 100% natural stone is, but require no special installation. In the modular house, the installer uses a mason's mitre to give the joints between the pieces additional surface area for the polyester epoxy to bond.

The epoxies from Dupont are specially formulated to match the countertops' color. David Miller from Desavino and Sons is on-hand to explain the countertop installation.
