When remodeling your kitchen, be sure to include a quartz countertop for instant beauty and unsurpassed durability. While all natural stone counters are popular among home owners, quartz offers all the benefits of other surfaces but also provides increased strength, durability and ease of use.

The most significant benefit of choosing quartz is the fact that quartz is maintenance free. Quartz is made up of tiny quartz crystals that are tightly bound together. This makes quartz non-porous. Once they are installed and given one final polish, they require no additional sealing or other maintenance. Spills won't affect the quartz's color and it is completely resistant to staining. No special cleaners are required. Simply wipe down your quartz kitchen countertops with a dishtowel or sponge and the counter is good to go.
The beauty factor of quartz is unmatched in other stone surfaces. Natural quartz is available in a variety of colors, making it a great choice for any décor. There is also a quartz material that is constructed of 95% ground quartz blended with polymer resin.
Since any color of quartz can be combined, the color variations are endless. It is possible to match the quartz color to other substances that are used in your kitchen. Quartz is the perfect complement to stainless steel appliances and backsplashes.
The polymer resin allows the finished product to be as strong and durable as the solid quartz slab is. The polymer enables the sink hole to be cut prior to installation, eliminating one step that needs to be done on site. Granite has to be cut on site because it is prone to crack. Quartz does not present this problem.
The quartz with the polymer resin can be created to look like other surfaces. One of the more popular color combinations is one that creates a limestone-like look, with the durability of quartz.
Quartz is the strongest commercial strength stone available for home construction. Because of this, it stands up to the rough conditions that are often present in the kitchen. It is able to withstand the cuts from knives and blows from pots and pans.
Since the surface is non-porous, it not only prevents staining from spills, but it also is bacteria resistant. Since the quartz won't absorb moisture or food particles, it remains a sanitary food preparation surface. While regular cleaning is still required, a quartz countertop does not require any special stone cleaner. Common household cleaner is all that is required to keep this beautiful surface clean and bacteria free.
Quartz is a natural heat resistant material. When using hot pots and pans, it is not necessary to place a hot pad down first. The heat won't mar the surface or change the appearance of the color of the countertop.
Choosing a countertop material can be a daunting task. Be sure to gather information on all the materials that you are considering. Compare the benefits with the drawbacks of all countertop surfaces. When all the information is taken into consideration, then make your decision. With all the benefits and not many drawbacks, a quartz countertop will usually come out on top.
