What is Quartz?
Quartz is one of the most common minerals in the Earth's crust, and
has many applications. Materials may vary slightly, but all products start
with more than 90 percent natural quartz, which is finely ground and then
formed into smooth slabs. The natural and manufactured qualities of quartz
countertops allow them to perform very well in kitchens and bathrooms,
as they are heat and scratch resistant.
In addition to being both heat and scratch resistant, you'll find that
quartz is a very accommodating material aesthetically, as well. Since
quartz is a type of engineered stone, there are many different varieties
you can choose from—more, in fact, than granite, marble, and other
kinds of natural stone. If you choose quartz for your countertop, you're
likely to find a counter that very closely matches the design you're
Quartz Countertop Advantages
Quartz can provide everything you could ever want from a kitchen or bathroom
countertop. Here are just a few of the advantages of installing a quartz
Highly Durable: Generally speaking, quartz countertops are more durable than 100% natural
stone. They are highly resistant to chips, cracks, scratches, and all
other kinds of damage.
Low Maintenance: Quartz countertops are very easy to clean. Engineered quartz is non-porous,
and does not need to be sealed like other natural stone counters.
Stain Resistant: Quartz's non-porous quality also means that it's highly resistant
to stains. Red wine, lemon, coffee, and other common causes of stains
will not mark up your quartz counter.
