Quartz Countertops Gaining in Popularity

Quartz countertops are gaining in popularity by leaps and bounds. Quartz countertops possess the best qualities of stone, together with its very own unique advantages. They offer an appealing option to natural stone countertops with very low maintenance, high durability, as well as having a vast selection of different color and style choices.

 

Quartz countertops are produced by combining 93% crushed natural quartz and 7% resin material that binds them together. Pigments are then added during the production process to give the countertop its color. The resulting slab is then polished to either a high gloss or a matte finish. Quartz countertops have a smooth, hard surface like a granite or marble slab, but it doesn’t have to be sealed annually.

Quartz has an exceptionally non-porous surface area making it very hygienic.  Since it doesn’t harbor bacteria and can withstand heat, it is the ideal countertop material for any kitchen area.  Quartz is practically indestructible, easy to clean, and beautiful.
