Granite has been a top seller for quite some time, but quartz just took a hold of first place. As much as we love natural stone, quartz is a surface we adore just as much! Quartz surfaces are a man-made product that is composed of natural materials that possess many benefits. Thus, making them a popular choice for consumers. Don’t know all the benefits of having quartz countertops? Don’t worry we have you covered with our brief overview.
Since quartz surfaces are made up of mostly ground quartz, this makes the surface extremely durable and non-porous. Ultimately resulting in a scratch, bacteria, stain, and heat resistant surface. This surface is a popular choice for families as you can get your countertops absolutely clean and free from harmful bacteria and viruses due to its non-porous design. Quartz surfaces also come in an array of colors and styles that can resemble natural stone and concrete.
Like other countertop options, quartz surfaces can come in different finishes. Finish options include high gloss, matte, leather, suede, velvet, and concrete.
Not only are quartz surfaces well-loved because of their durability, but also because of their carefree maintenance! Simply clean everyday spills with a soft cloth, mild soap, and warm water or a quartz cleaner. To prevent stains, spills should be cleaned as soon as possible. For stubborn stains, you can use a nonabrasive brush. Always remember to use hot pads, trivets, cutting boards and coasters for additional protection to ensure the life of your countertops.
Quartz surfaces are commonly used for indoor spaces as countertops, flooring, walls cladding, backsplashes, and fireplace surrounds. For large projects that require seaming, seams will be filled with a color-matching adhesive for a nearly seamless look. They will be visible and can be felt. For surfaces that have a more dynamic pattern, seams will be more apparent.
Quartz surfaces are a great choice for residential and commercial spaces for all of their benefits and vast array of design choices and are the only surface that is non-porous to help keep bacteria away.
