Are you thinking about remodeling your countertops? In newer, more modern homes, many homeowners are weighing the pros and cons about what type of countertops to install in their homes. You may notice quartz countertops are replacing marble and granite countertops and that may be for a few good reasons. Quartz has many benefits, such as color options, which can provide more of a variety than that of marble and granite. Because quartz is not considered an natural stone, it has a bit more durability and less weakness than that of granite, marble and slate. Still considering? Take a look at a few more reasons why quartz is taking over the countertop competition.
Quartz countertops have a unique molding capability which allows them to be molded and shaped into unique designs. Whether you want rounded counter bottoms or a total quartz sink, your imaginative design needs can be brought to life with this stone!
On the overall toughness scale, quartz rates higher than granite or marble. They are able to withstand the usual wear and tear that many traditional countertops cannot, and because they are not a natural stone, they have better durability that marble or granite. You’d have to take a sledgehammer to these countertops to scratch or break them.
Quartz is a non-porous surface, which means it is unsusceptible to any stains such as red wine spills or certain food dyes. It will not absorb any harmful colorations in the kitchen or the bathroom area, and it also won’t harbor any dangerous bacteria. This means a simple wipe down with soap and water will keep it clean.
Quartz is a no maintenance material. It does not require any extra conditioning after the install and unless you chip it with your big sledgehammer, there is no need for any later preservation.
