Introduction to quartz countertops
If you are remodeling your kitchen you have most likely encountered the problem of choosing the right counter material. You want to look for something that will be durable for many years to come and will satisfy all your needs. In such case you might want to consider quartz countertops, also called engineered stone. They are becoming more and more popular over the past decades and create a great alternative to other popular solutions such as granite and marble countertops.
It should not come as a surprise considering their combination of durability and flexibility, making them just as strong as other materials with the benefit of an easier installation process. They are non-porous, meaning there no holes and cracks for liquids to soak in. That is why they never require any sealing and always come with a few-year warranty.
Combining practicality with beauty
Even though they are heavier than granite they do not have the hardness in the feeling that some people might find unpleasant. Being non-porous, they are the best stain-resistant material you can choose, resisting even wine and oil. Even if you do spill something on the counter you will soon find how easy it is to clean its’ surface. Cleaning is also the only maintenance you will ever need to provide.
Moreover, it is much harder for germs to get lodged into the counter and therefore your food will be much safer than on other surfaces. When it comes to looks, the only limit is your imagination. Being man-made and manufactured, it can come in all sorts of styles and colors, making it a versatile material. The look and feel are also guaranteed to be uniform throughout the whole surface.
