Quartz is an engineered stone. Unlike Granite, Quartz is man made, by combining 97% Crushed Quartz and 3% Resin. This makes the stone just as strong as granite, but slightly heavier. They are then formed into slabs and sold to retailers. Quartz is the most popular stone on the market. From these slabs, we then custom cut your countertops to your exact measurements.
Quartz countertops are low maintenance. The engineered stone is non-porous, meaning that the material doesn’t stain and doesn’t require a sealer, unlike Granite, Quartzite & Marble. This stone’s porosity is an ideal material for kitchen countertops, due to the fact that bacteria cannot absorb or linger within the stone.
To clean these countertops, wipe them down as soon as possible with a clean towelette, warm water, and mild soap if necessary. Specialized cleaners are available on the market, but are rarely needed for proper cleaning.
Durable and long-lasting, quartz countertops are a top choice for the busy kitchen environment.
Often considered as an alternative to granite, quartz surfaces are a popular choice for kitchen countertops. More durable and long-lasting than granite, quartz is one of the hardest materials in the world, making it a viable choice for a kitchen countertop.
Quartz countertops are manufactured, the color and pattern possibilities are limitless—including varieties that are almost identical to granite or marble.
Perhaps one of the largest benefits of quartz surfaces is that they are stain and heat-resistant, making them easy to maintain. The non-porous quality of quartz also makes it highly resistant to mold and bacteria contamination.
These countertops require professional installation, due to the weight of the stones. Our installers are professionally trained to install your countertops to perfection. Seams are less visible amongst slab pieces, due to the fact that the colors are manufactured to perfection, ensuring color quality throughout the slab you cut your quartz from. Darker colors work best for hiding the seams.
