What You Need To Know About Quartz Countertops

Quartz surface is an engineered stone (manmade). Quartz counters provide a kitchen surface with the look of natural stone, minus the fuss of maintenance.

Quartz slabs are made from one of the hardest minerals on earth; they are the most durable option for kitchens. The tops have some of the most eye-catching colors and designs integrated into the stone.

These counters are stain and scratch resistant—and nonporous, so they never need to be sealed. Compare that with granite, the reigning king of high-end countertops, which typically requires a new protective top coat every one-five years depending on use.

In the past, the biggest knock against quartz was that it lacked the patterns. They come in a wide variety of colors. White is the most popular. Other colors are earthy browns, blacks, and creams, with sparkles and veining for the look of granite or marble.

They were once available only with a polished finish; now you can get one with a honed, sandblasted, or embossed treatment.

So if it’s the look of matte limestone, textured slate, or glossy granite that you want, there’s quartz ready to rock your counter, just a stone’s throw away. Click here!
