The chief benefit of the quartz countertop is its natural luster.
Pure polymer-based solid surface countertops such as Corian have a hard time achieving a deep, three-dimensional appearance, it’s easy for quartz countertops to have this because of their natural qualities.
Quartz countertops are engineered. As a result:
- It can be made into any color.
- It can be brought out in the surface by means of pigmentation.
- Not only that, but other types of organic materials such as stone and glass can be incorporated into the quartz-resin mixture which results in endless possibilities of colours and textures.
- It is manufactured so it can have a more regular pattern.
- Quartz products do come in color combinations not found in nature.
- Colours range from bright red to warm tones of chocolate brown and green.
- Quartz countertops offer colors that are impossible to find in natural granite.
- The latest quartz manufacturing techniques also allow us to enjoy the durability of quartz with natural granite or marble looking patterns.
- Quartz products are nonporous so they do not need to be sealed.
– Resistant to mostly all types of stains.
– Naturally resistant to bacteria (great for commercial use)
– low maintenance
– beautiful addition to any home or business space.
Quartz is extremely hard (one of the hardest minerals found on earth, second only to the diamond). As a result of this extra strength, countertop overhangs can be deeper, and require fewer support brackets. Quartz countertops are nearly twice as strong as natural granite. Quartz products are very dense, meaning the quartz crystals are very tightly packed. Because of the manufacturing process, they are also free of the invisible fissures (tiny cracks) that can be found in granite. The strength and versatility of colour and aversion to cracks or natural flaws makes granite a great choice for work surfaces and countertops.
Quartz countertops have many benefits.
– Wide colour selection
– Strength and Durability
– Low Maintenance
