The Intro of Quartz Countertops

Quartz is an interesting material. It’s not “just” quartz. It’s actually a composite made of quartz, pigments, and resins. While it contains natural stone ,it’s not a naturally occurring slab, such as granite.

In the U.S. today, sales of quartz countertops have skyrocketed with the number of quartz countertops now approaching those of granite and marble. This is due, in part, to the fact that quartz surfaces are chemical, stain, chip, and crack resistant. Not only that, but quartz surfacing is non-porous. This meant that the surfacing never needs sealing, plus it’s also 99.9-percent bacteria-free.

If you like the look of quartz, you probably prefer materials that look “like new,” without imperfections. While granite and marble are beautiful, they do contain variations and imperfections. Some think this adds character. But others prefer the color and pattern consistency of quartz, which has essentially “engineered out” any sign of imperfection. This also makes quartz surfacing incredibly flat and smooth.

Along these lines, any seams present in quartz surfaces can be easily disguised. On the other hand, seams in marble and granite are typically far more visible.

Not only will quartz surfaces last a very long time (and look great while doing so) they require very little, if any, maintenance. Unlike granite or marble, they never need to be sealed or re-sealed year after year. Plus, cleaning is exceptionally easy, requiring only wiping with a damp cloth or paper towel. Tougher cleaning jobs might require the help of a mild cleanser or non-abrasive sponge.

While quartz countertops are exceptionally durable, note that they’re not indestructible. We suggest that you always use trivets, towels, or pads when using hot pots and pans. Quartz can resist very high temperatures, but quick changes in temps (known as thermal shock) can damage the surface.

Today, quartz is quickly becoming a “must have” countertop material. But the most important thing is to choose the material that you like best. In the end, it’s a personal choice. If you like the color-consistency offered by quartz and the low-maintenance nature of the surface, we can all but guarantee that you’ll enjoy a quartz countertop.
