Why Quartz is an Up-and-Coming Countertop MaterialJuly 6th, 2017
When you decide to put new countertops in your home, you are faced with so many material options, it can be overwhelming. Although your first instinct may be to invest in stunning granite countertops, there are many, many reasons why you should think about going with quartz, which is one countertop material that’s growing in popularity:
- Durability — Quartz boasts the same hardness and durability as granite. However, it is more forgiving, so it is more resistant to cracking and chipping over time.
- Non-porous — Quartz is a non-porous material, so it won’t stain as easily when exposed to spilled liquids in the kitchen. This also means that this countertop material doesn’t harbor bacteria or germs.
- Style options — Quartz is an engineered stone, not a natural one. For this reason, the color and style possibilities are endless. We often recommend quartz countertops in situations where a unique look or certain color is desired.
- Sealing is not needed –– Since quartz is a non-porous material, you never have to seal it. This means that the amount of maintenance you need to invest in your quartz countertops will be minimal.
