Quartz countertops, made from an engineered stone material, are the best option when absolutely consistent stone color and texture are necessary for a kitchen, bathroom vanity top or other home or office project. They are the most popular alternative to natural stone countertops.
Quartz countertops are available in a vast array of contemporary colors and beautiful flowing patterns. Consistent textures, colors and patterns make seams in the design less visible than when using natural stone for countertops. In fact, Quartz manufacturers can produce the stone slabs with such consistency, stone selection can be made from samples.
Comprised of about 90% ground quartz stone and 10% resin polymer and color, these surfaces are nearly indestructible and maintenance free. Sealants are not required to protect them from stains or etching caused by acids found in food and cleaning products. They are bacteria, scratch, and heat resistant, which makes for easy care and cleaning of these resilient surfaces.
The most notable downfall to quartz countertops, also known as engineered stone countertops, is constant sun exposure may cause fading over an extended period of time. Keep application and sun exposure in mind when considering it for your stone countertop material.
