Large Format Porcelain
Easy to clean, remarkably strong, and visually stunning, porcelain makes an excellent lightweight addition to your everyday living space. Because porcelain is naturally resistant to stains, scratches, weather, and chemicals, it's a versatile choice for showers, fireplace surrounds and countertops. Merrimack Stone is proud to offer fabrication and installation of large-format porcelain surfaces for a variety of applications throughout your home.
Countertops & Backsplashes
Porcelain countertops are far more heat resistant than Granite or Quartz and will not burn, smoke, melt or emit harmful substances when heated. High-definition images of actual marble or stone veining and textures are laser printed onto the top of the porcelain slabs prior to the firing process, allowing for a far superior visual aesthetic as compared to veined quartz products.
Our most popular application, porcelain shower surrounds require little maintenance and feature almost no grout lines, all HD-printed with a through body color. Porcelain Shower Panels are 1/4" or 1/2" thick in a jumbo format and are available in three widths and two heights (please check availability). We've utilized these sizes to create over 100 common and custom-sized shower surrounds.
Large format porcelain is now a popular choice for fireplace surrounds. Given its aesthetic qualities, it's no surprise this new trend is growing rapidly—porcelain is strong, easy to clean and maintain, and resistant to stains, scratches, moisture, chemicals, temperature variances, and UV rays. Plus, porcelain can be easily applied to already existing surfaces, which makes installation fast and efficient.
