Quartz countertops are an excellent choice when upgrading or building a home. They are strong, durable, and easy to care for.
What is Quartz? Quartz is a hard mineral naturally found in many kinds of rocks throughout the world. Engineered quartz used for countertops is a combination of these natural minerals combined with resins to create an extremely durable material. Because it goes through a synthetic process, colors can also be added to create color options not available with other stone countertops. This creates a long-lasting, low-maintenance countertop that’s available in many colors and is quickly becoming a top choice for many homeowners.
Is Quartz Like Granite?
Quartz and granite are very similar but have some specific strengths and weaknesses. Granite, for instance, is more resistant to heat. But quartz has its benefits as well. Some of these include:
- Quartz countertops never need any sealing treatments, as this is taken care of during engineering.
- Heat resistant, but do not place hot pans directly on the counters.
