Quartz

What should I know about quartz?

This engineered stone gets created using silicon dioxide or another polymer resin with at least 90% powdered quartz stone making it incredibly hard. Manufacturers can add any pigment color during production to match your exact color specifications. They can even feature colors not typically found in Natural stone slabs, such as purple, orange, and yellow.

Quartz is the most popular, versatile, and affordable countertop option, and it is always a bestseller.

What should I know about quartz?

Is quartz a natural stone?
Quartz is often mistaken for a natural stone like granite or marble. In reality, quartz is a man-made blend of at least 90% powdered quartz stone and a polymer resin-like silicon dioxide. A liquid quartz blend is poured into a mold during the fabrication process to create a hard-pressed slab. After this slab is cured, it’s precisely cut down to fit the measurements of your home. Any color of pigment can be added to the blend to produce the exact look you want for your countertop. As an engineered stone, quartz is consistent in quality and performance, and the fabrication ensures a uniform appearance throughout the slab.
Is quartz as durable for countertops as a natural stone?
Quartz is an alternative if you love natural stone’s elegant look but don’t like to deal with constant care and resealing. Quartz provides a hard and durable work surface that doesn’t need to be sealed for stain resistance, as only natural stone is porous (a result of how natural stone is formed underground). Quartz also withstands scratches, chips, and cracks. The only area of concern is heat. Never put a pot or pan from the stove or oven directly on the surface of a quartz countertop. You can easily avoid permanent damage by keeping a heat-protecting pad or trivet handy in the kitchen (or even the bathroom if you use heated styling tools).

Quartz counters care.
Quartz is an excellent countertop material for maintaining hygienic conditions in kitchens and bathrooms. Its non-porous surface effectively repels bacteria and mold and resists stains from wine, makeup, oils, and all your other household goods. Caring for a quartz countertop doesn’t get any easier. You don’t have to seal the surface like a natural stone. Merely clean quartz with soap and water, and it will last you for years. Your quartz can be fabricated to look like high-end marble, and only you’ll ever know how much money you saved. Because it’s not quarried and shipped to your location, engineered quartz slabs are much more affordable and customizable than natural stones like granite, marble, and quartzite.
Why should you consider quartz countertops?
The latest quartz fabrication methods yield incredible color and texture, making quartz the most customizable and versatile material to complement your home’s interior design and style. In addition to solid colors in various hues, it’s possible to achieve multicolored flecks of different sizes and densities based on the mixing process. The newest trends in quartz fabrication mimic a quarried slab of natural stone with subtle veins of color and random striations.
