Take advantage of natural looks and premium durability with quartz
Choose Quartz for Your Countertop
Choosing the right kitchen countertop is often a difficult decision, largely because you need to balance style with durability. Granite countertops, for example, offer unique looks and glossy surfaces, but they are susceptible to chipping and stains. For extra durability, Corian countertops are practical, but they aren’t nearly as visually appealing. How can you find the perfect balance between looks and durability? By choosing quartz! Quartz countertops offer natural, unique looks and strength and stain resistance.
Quartz is found naturally, but quartz countertops are actually engineered. The final product is usually around 93-94% real quartz, but materials such as polyester resins are added. These resins make quartz countertops scratch and stain resistant, so unlike granite, quartz does not need to be sealed. When it comes to strength and durability, quartz is therefore similar to Corian.
Nonetheless, quartz countertops, since they are made with mostly natural materials, do offer granite-like looks. Materials such as glass and metal are often added to the countertops, and the surfaces can be polished, honed, sandblasted, or textured. Plus, there are so many different colors and patterns available. Whether you want white quartz countertops or something darker, there is an appropriate style to suit your needs.
