Selecting Quartz Counters

Selecting Quartz Counters

Selecting quartz counters has several advantages over other stone countertops. Quartz countertops are increasing in popularity not only for their beauty, but because of they are strong, durable and don’t require a lot of maintenance. They are also available in a vast selection of colors and patterns.
Quartz countertops are actually a combination of 93% crushed natural quartz and a resin material that binds it all together. Pigment is then added to the mixture to give it the desired shade. Quartz countertops are made to look like all-natural stone countertops, but with more color selection, less movement and less maintenance. Because the non-porous and non-absorbing qualities of quartz don’t allow the surface to harbor any bacteria, it is the perfect material for any kitchen countertop. Quartz doesn’t require annual sealing like other natural stone counters.
