This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previous live event.

The materials that go into the kitchen and bath environment are important: They often reflect current trends, occupants see the items a lot and they have to hold up to moisture. This presentation will discuss what it takes to successfully specify surfacing in a commercial kitchen and bath setting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what goes into specifying common surfacing materials: Quartz, Granite and Porcelain.
  • Gain knowledge on the differences between the materials.
  • Learn about the maintenance required of these products.
  • Find out the considerations for specifying surfacing in a kitchen and bath environment.
