Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are a man-made material, an engineered stone. The reason they don’t qualify as natural stone countertops is because 10% of their makeup is composed of polymers and resins – on top of the 90% natural quartz base.

Care and Keeping of Quartz

Quartz is very easy to take care of. It is adept at resisting acids, which means that it’s less likely to develop stains. This holds true even without a sealing routine, as the polymers and resins make sealing unnecessary.

As long as you avoid abrasive cleaners and wipe your quartz countertops down once a day with soap and water, they should hold up for a very long time – maybe even longer than your home itself.

Durability

Quartz is a very durable material – it’s as hard as concrete. It’s known for being scratch-resistant, but it is not scratch proof. Exercise caution when chopping food; we recommend always using a cutting board.

As for heat-resistance, the quartz stone itself is – but the polymers and resins included are not. To prevent scorching your quartz countertop, always put down hot pads or trivets.

It’s rare that quartz will chip, but this material is not invincible. It’s possible that damage could occur at the edges or seams due to brute force or extreme weight. If chips do occur, they can be easily fixed by epoxy adhesive.

Location

Quartz performs best when it’s installed indoors. It’s possible for it to go outside, but extra care must be put into its placement and upkeep. The resins may turn yellow in direct sunlight, so if you must put your quartz outside, make sure it’s located in a covered, shady area.

Quartz kitchen countertops are by far the most popular, as this material isn’t friendly to germs or bacteria, and it is very easy to clean.

Advantages of Quartz

Quartz countertops are very durable, and they’re highly resistant to scratches and stains. Being that they’re in such high-demand, they can also raise the resale value of your home. They would be a great asset to any remodeled space. To learn more about quartz, contact us for a consultation today.
