Guest chefs and Quartz Countertops - WARNING
I am a fabricator.
It happened again so I thought I share this as a warning to others.
Got a call from a customer that selected a quartz surface for her countertops. Her sister, an accomplished chef, was visiting and damaged my customers countertop by placing a hot pan on the counter. The chef sister has granite at her home and is used to putting items from the stove and oven anywhere she wants.
Damaging a quartz countertop with heat is a rare event (we've had about a dozen incidents in 12 years and several thousand jobs) but it's usually a situation just like the one described above where a guest in the kitchen does the damage.
