With so many countertop options out there its easy to get confused. Here are some answers to our most commonly asked questions about Quartz!
What is a Quartz Surface?
Quartz or "quartz surfacing" is an engineered stone. Engineered stone is a composite material made of crushed stone (quartz) bound together by an adhesive. Quartz is one of the hardest, most abundant minerals found in nature – only diamond, sapphire and topaz are harder. In addition to its beauty, the quartz gives the surface extreme strength, making quartz surfaces highly scratch-resistant.
What are the advantages of quartz?
Quartz is a dense, non-porous stone that is realiable and scratch-resistant, as well stain-resistant. It is available in a large variety of naturally beautiful colors. Additionally quartz is virtually maintenance-free – it doesn’t need to be sealed and cleaning is hassle free.
Why would I choose Quartz over Granite or Marble?
Where some people appreciate and desire the unique patterns and colors found in natural stone, others want the unifomity and consistensy found in engineered stone. So it really comes down to personal preference.
