ABOUT QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS

Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on Earth. Because of its strength and abundance, quartz is a popular and reliable choice for countertops. Quartz countertops are sometimes referred to as “engineered” or “man-made,” but quartz is in fact comprised of anywhere from 93% to 96% natural stone. 

 

Benefits of Quartz Countertops

  • Quartz is extremely durable.

  • Quartz countertops never have to be sealed, unlike granite, marble, and other surfaces that require regular maintenance.

  • Quartz countertops are also nonabsorbent, so they resist staining and don’t harbor harmful bacteria.

  • Homeowners and designers also turn to quartz for its versatile and beautiful designs, colors, and patterns.

  • Quartz countertops are scratch resistant. In fact, due to their hardness they may dull a knife that is used directly on the surface!

  • Like all natural stone countertops, quartz can be damaged by sudden changes in temperature. Pot holders and trivets should be used to protect a quartz countertop from anything hot.

  • Though quartz countertops are not approved for outdoor use, quartz may be used in outdoor kitchens with full overhead coverage from the elements.
