Quartz Countertops

Quartz is very similar to granite except that it is not entirely natural. It is made of about 93 percent crushed quartz and 7 percent resin. Natural quartz is one of the hardest minerals found on Earth. Homeowners often choose quartz because of its low-maintenance option, which makes it perfect for any busy kitchen. It is also nonporous, stain-resistant and easy to clean. Because it is a nonporous material, germs and bacteria are not able to penetrate the pores making it difficult to clean. For that reason, you will never have to seal, condition or polish it.  In terms of colors, unlike granite, quartz comes in a wide variety and the colors are consistent. However, it can be difficult to replicate the natural look of stone and its colors are artificial.

Low Maintenance Elegance:

Quartz countertops are prized for their low-maintenance qualities, making them ideal for busy kitchens. Nonporous and stain-resistant, quartz surfaces are exceptionally easy to clean and sanitize, providing a hygienic environment where germs and bacteria are unable to penetrate the pores. Unlike natural stone, quartz requires no sealing, polishing, or conditioning, simplifying upkeep and preserving its pristine appearance for years to come.

Consistent Beauty:

One of the distinguishing features of quartz is its consistent colors and designs. Unlike the inherent variations found in natural stone, quartz offers uniformity in appearance, allowing homeowners to achieve a cohesive look throughout their space. While it may lack the organic veining and patterns of purely natural stones, quartz countertops boast a wide variety of colors and designs to suit any aesthetic preference.

Durable Performance:

Quartz countertops are engineered to withstand the rigors of daily use, offering exceptional resistance to heat, scratches, chemicals, and stains. However, it’s important to note that prolonged exposure to extreme heat can lead to discoloration, necessitating the use of heat pads or trivets to protect the surface and maintain its longevity.
