WHY CHOOSE QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS?

WHY CHOOSE QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS?

2020-11-09

If you're planning a kitchen remodel, have you considered quartz countertops? As a material, quartz is versatile, available in a wide range of beautiful styles, and easy to care for.


Whereas it was once reserved for high-end homes, grey kitchen worktops are finding their way into more kitchens and bathrooms, replacing granite.  As brands proliferate, quartz becomes more accessible and prices more affordable.


What constitutes a quartz countertop?

Quartz countertops consist of 93-95% ground quartz minerals, combined with resin binders and pigments for color under intense heat and pressure to form a solid slab. The resulting product is not only low-maintenance, non-porous, uniform, hard and stain and scratch-resistant, but also available in a wide range of natural-looking patterns and colors.


You may also find quartz referred to as engineered stone. 


A favored premium countertop material of kitchen and bathroom designers and architects, quartz is often confused with natural stone and solid surface countertop materials (e.g., Corian).  

Performance/maintenance benefits of quartz

Unlike natural stone (or even wood), quartz will never need to be sealed. Neither will it need to be polished. 


Quartz counters are harder and more durable than natural slab granite.


Quartz has a water absorption rate comparable to that of porcelain at 0.5%. That makes it non-porous and very easy to maintain (just wipe with soapy water once a day).


Furthermore, stain, odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew won't affect your counters - an ideal situation for a kitchen. 


Quartz' design benefits

"Designs" is the industry shorthand for several qualities of the slab's visual appearance:  overall color, size and shape of minerals, streaks, and striations.  The range of designs is the single biggest difference between quartz brands.  


Surface finishes range from matte to high gloss.


Furthermore, unlike natural stone, seams are often invisible. Resins make quartz more flexible and the cuts cleaner. 


How to care for your quartz countertop?

Caring for and maintaining your grey quartz countertops is wonderfully simple! Simply remove surface stains a gentle cleansing scrub.


Avoid scouring pads as they can dull the surface, and harsh chemicals that could break down the bonds between the quartz and resins.
