Quartz is a manufactured product and can be very attractive.
Quartz countertops are relatively new, but they’ve found a loyal following because of their many good qualities such as their attractive appearance, durability and the fact they don’t have some of the weaknesses of natural stone.
The process allows a much wider range of colors than you’ll find in natural stones such as marble or granite. The appearance of the finished engineered stone is rich, even luxurious.
With the same durability as concrete and granite, but is quite a bit more forgiving, so it won’t chip or crack as easily.
Like other hard surface countertop materials, quartz is non-porous so it resists staining much better than granite, marble and concrete. It stands up to oil, wine, coffee and other sources of stains in the kitchen.
Because it is non-porous, it cleans up with mild soap and a sponge or dish rag.
This is a very sanitary countertop. 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.
