Quartz – The Unexpected Heavy Hitter

Posted by on July 13, 2023

Thinking of new countertops for your house?  Quartz is a popular choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops due to its durability, low maintenance, and wide range of colors and patterns. It is a man-made material that is made from natural quartz crystals, resin, and pigments.

One of the best features of quartz countertops is their durability. Quartz is a hard, non-porous material that is resistant to scratches and stains with reasonable use. It is also easy to clean and maintain, as it does not require sealing like natural stone countertops.

In addition to its easy maintenance, quartz also looks great in a variety of installations. Its wide range of colors and patterns allows for endless design possibilities, and it can mimic the look of natural stone such as granite or marble.  The value of installing a marble-look material without the care requirements of natural stone is very exciting.

Quartz countertops can range wildly in price, but they are a durable investment that will likely last for the life of your home.
