bring your kitchens and bathrooms to life:
Your kitchen and bathroom surfaces are some of the most important focal points in your home. Therefore you want to make sure you find a material that has beauty and outstanding performance. We curate the best building materials on the market that allow your home to set a new standard, and our Quartz slabs are no exception.
These slabs have a polished finish.
A highly reflective surface that is smooth to the touch. Polished surfaces help a room appear more spacious, and add luxury to interiors. Polished is our standard finish for all of our slabs, offering durability and requiring minimal care and maintenance.
A satin finish with low sheen and a natural, less formal aesthetic. Gast Home’s honed finish exudes a refined organic look, with its low light reflection, and stylish design appeal. Soft on the eye, and smooth to the touch, our Honed finish works well with contemporary and classic design looks.
A smooth profile but with a compelling tactile effect that is inviting to touch. Gast Home’s Rough finish has a coarser look and low light reflection, yielding more to a modern or industrial design aesthetic. Our Rough finish is designed to reflect the authentic patinas of industrial materials. The variations in appearance capture real depth and movement, displaying different qualities that make each slab distinct. When using slabs for a multi-slab installation, different slabs will reveal visual differences. For slabs with textured finishes, we recommend seeing the slab at a retail location, or ordering a sample.

We assume by now you have looked extensively online and visited multiple slab yards to look at slabs and pricing. If so, you understand the complete lack of transparency when it comes to Quartz and Stone slab pricing. When you go to a retail or slab yard, they will offer you pricing based on you and your interest, and they will never offer you the best pricing. We understand how frustrating this can be, which is why we offer completely transparent pricing both online and in our showrooms. Additionally, we offer the best pricing found anywhere in the United States for the highest quality quartz available. If you have any questions about our prices, please contact us.
BULK Commercial Pricing
If you are working on a large project and in need of a large number of slabs, we do offer slightly better pricing for bulk orders. Our pricing is already “contractor” pricing, so we do not offer better pricing to contractors. However we do offer a discount for large order, and shipping costs will also be reduced. Please contact us to discuss specific pricing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our Quartz Slabs are ideal for Countertops in any room, food prep surfaces, backsplashes, shower walls, tub surrounds, window sills, indoor wall cladding, tabletops and other furniture, and many other uses.
Our quartz surfaces are dense, durable, and easy to care for.
Our recycled Quartz slabs are made from recycled quartz and resin. It is a composite material where the resins are mixed with recycled stone, and then compressed under heat and pressure. This produces a dense, homogeneous and essentially non-porous material. The slabs can then be machined and finished like dense stone.
Assuming inventory is shown, these slabs are in stock in our slab yards throughout the country. If you have any questions, please call us when ready to order and we will let you know the lead time including shipping.
Browse our website for the full range of Quartz slabs including colors and patterns. We do not manufacture Quartz slabs with custom colors, but if there is a color or pattern that you do not see on our website, give us a call and we can source it.
Although our Quartz building products are scratch resistant, it is recommended to use a cutting board when cutting.
Gast Home is committed to innovative green building materials, and this quartz product is a great environmentally friendly countertop solution. When materials are made with sustainability in mind, it means we live in a healthier world. These recycled quartz slabs contain no formaldehyde and emits no VOCs.
The LEED Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, is a voluntary standard for developing environmentally responsible, low emission, high-performance, sustainable buildings. LEED certification is for the entire construction project. Materials and products used in buildings are not individually certified. Through a rigorous process of third-party verification by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) the project earns points towards achieving a particular level of certification (Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum).
Because these countertops use recycled content, they may qualify for numerous LEED points in the selected categories of Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and potentially Innovation in Design.
- MR 4.1/4.2: Recycled Content (1-2 points)
- MR 5.1/5.2: Regional Materials (2 points)
- MR 4.0
