Quartz is one of the most vital minerals on earth it’s twice as hard as granite which making it an ideal choice for creating durable kitchen countertops. Quartz surfaces are high-quality, low-maintenance, and give a modern, upscale look to any kitchen. Let’s look at why this innovative material sets the standard for today’s countertops and tomorrow.

Quartz Countertops are Designed and Engineered for Quality

Natural stone slabs that are mined, quartz slabs are designed and engineered in a facility. Ground quartz is mixed with pigments to give it color and then blended with resin binders under extreme heat and force to form a solid slab. At times, metallic flecks and recycled glass may also be added to the mixture to create an eye-catching design. The production process has become more advanced over the years and can now create veining, swirls, and color variations that render it equal in appearance to natural stone. Once the quartz material has cured, it may be polished, honed, sandblasted, or embossed to create a glossy or matte finish or various textures.

Not all Quartz Countertops are Engineered Equal

Just as with any mass-produced product, the quality of quartz countertop slabs can vary broadly. However, the added resins tend to make them more flexible than those made from natural stone. Low-quality quartz countertops may crack during installation or develop chips over time even though quartz surfaces are nonporous and don’t require sealing; if the bond between the quartz and the resin breaks down may become vulnerable to staining. To ensure the manufacturer stands behind its product, consumers should look for a comprehensive warranty program. Choice Granite Inc offers the best quality quartz countertops on the market.

Quartz Countertops Are Very Popular among Los Angeles Home Owners.

One of the main reasons quartz has exploded in popularity is its appearance. Quartz has the look of stone while also allowing homeowners to customize the design. While granite offers many options in terms of appearance, you may have to search for the right piece that matches your color scheme. With quartz, the selection process is much more comfortable.

Quartz is also nonporous, so it doesn’t hold onto bacteria from raw meat. Although you technically could cut on quartz, it won’t ruin the countertop; it will ruin your knives. Quartz is more rigid than steel and should not be used as a cutting surface.
