Benefits of Quartz Counters
Quartz is one of the best options available for new countertops. Like other natural stone countertops, it’s known primarily for durability and long-lasting quality. Still, quartz also offers unique benefits, including easy maintenance and a wide variety of available styles.
Even among other countertop options, quartz is especially durable. Quartz is non-porous, making it resistant to chips and scratches. Quartz is also stain-resistant and won’t harbor bacteria. It also offers extra durability, even compared to granite, making it an ideal choice for busy kitchens that will see a lot of use.
Quartz countertops also are among the easiest to maintain. Since quartz is non-porous, you don’t have to worry about liquids leaking into the cracks and causing damage. You will never have to seal or reseal it as you would marble or granite. The only maintenance you will have to do is a brief wipe-down at the end of the day to keep your quartz countertops looking good as new for years to come.
Variety of Styles
One of the most popular reasons clients choose quartz countertops is the wide variety of styles that are available. Arguably, this diversity of options available for purchase is the biggest advantage quartz has over other natural stone countertops.
Quartz is manufactured from a combination of crushed stone pieces and epoxy resin, meaning you have a greater degree of control over the final product’s color and pattern. In the case of granite or marble countertops, you only can use their natural color and pattern. Quartz can be customized to fit the exact style of your home, making it an ideal choice if you want a very specific look for your kitchen.
What to Be Aware of When Buying Quartz Kitchen Countertops
Despite these advantages, there are a few points you should keep in mind when buying or installing quartz countertops. First, quartz is more likely to have noticeable seams, which some clients want to avoid. However, our expert team of consultants and installers can help minimize them in your kitchen’s layout.
Additionally, quartz can be vulnerable to sustained light or heat, which can cause damage to your new countertops. Quartz should not be used outdoors, and if one part of your counter receives more direct sunlight, it may have noticeable discoloration. Furthermore, be sure to use heating pads or trivets when working with hot items in the kitchen to avoid damaging your new counters.
