Quartz Counter Tops

 

Quartz began appearing in homes a few years ago after gaining popularity in Europe for the decades. Today, quartz countertops are exploding in popularity. 

Quartz is a great alternative to natural stone, because of its high durability, resistance against scratches and stains, low maintenance and endless colour options. From kitchens, bathrooms, vanities, countertops, and fireplace surrounds, quartz applications and versatilities are endless. Quartz can also be used on large vertical surfaces such as shower enclosures or backsplashes.

Quartz Counter Tops

What is Quartz made of?

Quartz countertops are man-made engineered stone countertops formed by combining 90% ground quartz (a natural hard mineral) with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments.

The result is a super-hard, low-maintenance, natural stone-look countertop that offers colour and design flexibility. For some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix. Engineered quartz is inherently nonporous, with a high resistance to stains and scratches.

Reasons to Consider Quartz Countertops

Non-porous. Quartz offers a low maintenance material solution for countertops. Unlike other types of stone countertops, quartz resists staining and corrosion from most household products. There is also no need for resealing of the surface.

Hygienic. Because of a non-porous surface, it will not harbor bacteria or viruses. The quartz washes off with soap and water and there is no need for any special detergents, although there are special detergents available at supermarkets.

Scratches. The Manufacturing process ensures durability and a high scratch resistance.

Strength.  Quartz is an extremely hard stone and can be used on larger vertical surfaces like backsplashes and even shower enclosures.

Appearance. Quartz has a deep, almost 3D appearance, much like natural stone. By adding pigments to the quartz and resin mix, manufacturers can ensure that the slab is exactly the color, texture and pattern that you want.

Maintenance

Quartz has a high heat resistance, but just like granite it can be damaged by excessive heat.

Avoid quick changes in temperature in order to avoid countertops from cracking. Avoid strong chemicals and solvents and use non-abrasive cleaners. 

Whether you are considering a backsplash, a new kitchen countertop, or a new bathroom vanity, buying a quartz countertop will bring luxury, beauty, and durability, and that special ambiance, enhancing any home environment.
