About Quartz Countertops

Quartz is an engineered stone from combining ground-up quartz stone with super-tough resins and attractive pigments. Quartz colors and patterns are virtually endless, and this engineered stone is stronger than natural stone. In addition, no regular sealing is necessary after installing quartz countertops.

While there are many different kinds of quartz countertops, each type has its own unique qualities.

Why Quartz Countertops?

While quartz is considered a “natural” product, quartz countertops are actually engineered by man. They’re made up of resin, pigment, and quartz powder mixed together to form a solid slab.

Quartz counters are easy to maintain and come in many different styles and colors. They’re also considered fairly affordable.

They are nonporous, durable, hygienic, stain resistant and scratch resistant.

Quartz is heat resistant but using a trivet is required for high temperature, direct and continued heat.

Pros of Using Quartz

The pros of quartz counters far outweigh the cons. They’re easy to clean, stain-resistant, and come in many different styles and colors. Here are some things to consider when shopping for quartz countertops.

1. Durable

Quartz counters are extremely hard and strong, making them some of the best options for kitchens and bathrooms. Manufacturers are so confident in the durability of quartz countertops that most offer generous warranties.

2. Heat Resistant

Quartz is heat resistant but using a trivet is required for high temperature, direct and continued heat.

3. Stain Resistant and Easy to Clean

Because quartz is nonporous, it won’t attract dirt like other types of stone do. This makes it ideal for kitchens where spills happen frequently.

Most people think that cleaning quartz is difficult, but it really isn’t. Just use warm water and soap. You’ll find that most stains just wash off easily.

Quartz countertops are durable, stain resistant, easy to clean, and long-lasting. They’re also very affordable. But there are some drawbacks to consider:


Installing quartz countertops isn’t just an afternoon DIY project. It requires skilled professionals to take measurements, level, and secure each slab to the cabinetry or kitchen island. They must also carefully position each slab to minimize the visibility of steam lines. This can be a simple or very complicated job depending on the patterns and colors used.
