The Benefits of Quartz Countertops
Serving Baltimore & Surrounding Areas
Quartz countertops are made from a combination of crushed natural quartz stones and a polymer resin material. These engineered stone countertops offer an appealing alternative to natural stone countertops, marrying the benefits of laminates with the beauty of stone. Unlimited Stone’s team of skilled craftsmen and staff specializes in custom countertops in Baltimore, including quartz, marble, and granite countertop options for kitchens, bathrooms, and beyond.
Quartz as an Eco-Friendly Countertop Option
Choosing a quartz countertop is a step toward a greener, more eco-friendly home. Quartz is among the top three most abundant minerals found in the Earth’s crust, meaning it is not a highly-limited or difficult-to-obtain resource. Because quartz is extremely durable, your quartz countertops will last for decades—in fact, most quartz countertops will outlast all other finishes and materials in your home. The fact that you will never need to replace a quartz countertop also means you will not require the further use of materials or energy to create and install replacement countertops, thus lowering your home’s overall carbon footprint as well. If you do choose to replace your countertops, your quartz countertops can be removed and reused in your home or for other applications, rather than going into a landfill. Finally, many quartz countertop manufacturers offer products that are GreenGuard-certified as low-emission materials.
Quartz as an Alternative to Natural Stone Countertops
Quartz countertops can be an ideal alternative to natural stone countertops, such as marble or granite countertops. Some of the many reasons homeowners opt for quartz countertops over natural stone include
- Price: Quartz is typically more expensive than natural stone options such as granite or marble, but can offer a more modern look that is easier on the environment because it can be made in the states rather than being shipped from Europe like granite. Modern quartz countertops are available in the same finishes as natural stone countertops as well, including polished, matte, embossed, and sandblasted finishes.
- Consistency: Unlike natural stone, which cannot be guaranteed in color or pattern, quartz countertops offer excellent color consistency. Furthermore, some natural stone products are dyed; this dye may change color over time, but the pigments used in quartz countertops offer complete colorfastness throughout the product’s lifetime.
