A Guide to Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops can bring beauty to any kitchen or bathroom. Though this surface type has been on the market since the 1960s, its demand has significantly risen over the past few years and continues to rise. Here are just some of the wonderful benefits of quartz countertops.

What are Quartz Countertops

Quartz is a hard, crystalline mineral that is composed of silicon and oxygen atoms. Quartz countertops come from a manmade stone and are made up of about 90-95% ground quartz and around 5-10% resin, polymers, and pigments. This combination creates a hard surface and how coarse or fine the quartz was ground will determine the overall appearance of the countertops.

Look and Feel

Quartz countertops are very hard and durable, making them stain and crack resistant. The look offers a natural shine without additional polishing. These surfaces don’t need to be sealed or resealed and they are naturally non-porous. Quartz countertops are extremely low maintenance; there is virtually no upkeep once they are installed. Your counters can simply be cleaned with soap and water. Avoid adding heat directly to the surface to keep your counters looking great for years!

One of the biggest advantages of quartz is the variety of color and pattern options. Virtually any color a homeowner can imagine is available, which is very appealing for a unique look. Having a variety of color options makes it very easy to coordinate your kitchen or bath with existing furniture and features.
