Quartz is one of today’s most popular choices in countertops. It combines the beauty and durability of natural stone, with the ease and convenience of man-made materials. Because it is an engineered stone, it also has the benefits of a uniform colour and look. Quartz comes in an abundance of colours and styles, including designer colours and can match any home décor.
Quartz is one of the most durable materials and is comprised of natural quartz combined with epoxy resin. Quartz is non-porous and doesn’t require sealing like other stone countertops. It is very scratch-, stain- and heat-resistant, which means you can place hot pots and pans directly on the counter. Quartz is also one of the most hygienic countertops, as it doesn’t breed bacteria like other materials.
With a quartz countertop, you can create custom edges. Quartz also allows the installation of an undermount sink and faucets to be installed directly on the counter. The beauty of quartz will add great resale value to your home. And it isn’t just for countertops! Quartz is one of the most versatile materials and can be used for shower walls, wet bars and islands. It comes in tiles, which makes for a great backsplash to match your countertop. Quartz is also an excellent material for desktops, fireplace surrounds and floors. Best of all, it’s virtually maintenance-free! To clean a quartz countertop, you just need warm, soapy water and a cloth.
