What You Need to Know About Quartz Countertops

Read more about What You Need to Know About Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are made from one of the hardest minerals on earth. Quite possibly the most durable option for your kitchen or bathroom counter, quartz countertops come in a wide variety of dazzling designs and colours, including everything from red and green, to subtler tones of brown, black, and cream. But unlike natural-stone slabs, which are mined, quartz slabs are engineered in a factory. Natural-quartz crystals are mined, then ground into a fine dust that's fused with resin binders under intense heat and pressure to form solid slabs. Pigments are added during the process to give the slab its colour and for some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are mixed in.

The resin makes quartz countertops stain resistant, and nonporous so bacteria, mold and mildew will never penetrate the surface. Quartz counters don’t ever have to be sealed, an advantage to consider when comparing with granite that would typically require a protective coating once a year. For daily cleaning and maintenance, simply wipe quartz counters with soapy water, and surface stains can be removed with a gentle cleansing scrub. Avoid rough scratch pads which can dull the surface over time, as well as any chemical products that could break down the bonds between the quartz and resins.

Quartz counters are heat resistant, but err on the side of caution – always use a pad under a hot pan or pot. Any sudden change in temperature may cause the surface to crack.

In the past, the biggest issue customers encountered with quartz was that it lacked patterns and colour options you would get with natural stone – but we are proud to say that this is no longer an issue, with literally hundreds of multi-hued slabs with flecks, swirls, and random patterns in a variety of honed, sandblasted or embossed surfaces. If it's the look of matte limestone, textured slate, or glossy granite that you want, there's a most definitely a quartz countertop for you.
