Ease of Care

Quartz countertops can be cleaned with simple soap and water. Just make sure you avoid scouring pads which can dull the quartz surface and don’t use any harsh chemicals. Quartz is even stain-resistant! Because of the way it’s made, it has no channels and it never requires sealing, making it much easier to use and maintain. That means you don’t have to worry about kids (or adults) spilling their drinks and ruining your countertops.


Quartz countertops will last for a long time. Quartz is a very hard material that’s both stain and scratch resistant. Stains, mold and odor-causing bacteria can’t penetrate quartz’s surface due to its non-porous nature, making it perfect for the kitchen, bathroom and other rooms in the home.


The biggest reason for the recent surge in quartz’s popularity can likely be traced to advances in the man-made stone’s aesthetic. Quartz kitchen countertops now come in a multitude for styles with slabs with swirls, stunning metallic flecks and unique patterns to make them almost indistinguishable from the natural stone varieties. Coming in many colors and patterns, you are sure to find the quartz countertops to match your unique home. And, because of the way quartz countertops are manufactured, it has a uniform look that’s sleek and impressive.


With the expenses that come along with a new home or a home renovation, it can be important to choose materials that offer the best value for your money. Quartz countertops are comparable to granite and other natural stone in price. And, like their natural counterparts,  they won’t sacrifice on style. If your home is in need of a lot of countertop space, quartz may just be the material for you.
