Quartz is an engineered stone that has been rising in popularity in recent years. For some people, it’s considered a top choice even above natural stones like granite and marble.
Quartz is an engineered stone countertop, not a natural one; it’s not made entirely of natural stone. While its primary component is natural quartz, there are additives of polymers and resins added to create the look of quartz countertops that you know and love. Once all of the ingredients are mixed together, they are poured into a block mold and baked.
Unlike natural stone countertops, the patterns on quartz slabs are known for their uniformity. If you’re interested in a seamless look for your kitchen instead of the unpredictability of natural stone, then quartz is a good option.
Quartz is known for how it resists acids, which means that it’s unlikely to develop stains over time or from spills. It doesn’t require the sealing that natural stone countertops do, so there’s not much maintenance required at all. After you install the countertops, you’ll be able to enjoy them for years while putting in very minimal work.
Of course, you’ll need to wipe down your quartz countertops now and again using water and a mild detergent. We recommend steering clear from abrasive substances like bleach, ammonia, or vinegar and cleaners that contain polish, wax, or oils.
To keep your quartz countertop looking as good as the day you had it installed, always remember to use a cutting board and clean up spills as soon as they happen. And don’t forget to use a hot pad or trivet, as quartz is not known for being heat-resistant in the way that other stones are.
Quartz is gaining popularity because of how durable it is. People love how long quartz lasts, and they appreciate the fact that they won’t have to replace their countertop for many years.
While quartz is more expensive than other materials like laminate and tile, the quality that you receive is worth the extra money. Quartz is a worthy investment that will serve you for a long time to come.
