Quartz is a manufactured product and a very attractive option when looking for a counter top surface. The manufacturing process allows a wide range of colors. The appearance of finished engineered stone is rich, polished and even luxurious. The finish has a depth that can’t be produced with solid surface materials.
Quartz has the same durability as concrete and granite, but is quite a bit more forgiving. Quartz is not as easily chipped or cracked as many natural stones. Although it doesn’t have the same hardness in feel that some people find less appealing.
Like other hard surfaces, quartz is non-porous so it resists staining much better than granite and marble. It stands up to juice, oil, wine, tomato, coffee and other sources of stains in the kitchen. You can always be confident that you are getting your quartz countertop absolutely clean, and that’s a great benefit in both the kitchen and the bathroom.
