All about granite countertops

Over the past decade, countertops have exploded with stone products and quartz is one of the most popular stones, most likely because of its visual appeal.

Quartz is both natural and engineered by man, meaning that even though 95 percent is ground natural quartz, it’s also mixed with five percent polymer resins. The manufacturing process results in an ultra-durable, easy-to-care for, non-porous natural stone-look.

Quartz countertops, like their natural counterparts, allow for a variety of edging possibilities. Unlike natural stone, however, they provide more design options because they are less rigid to work, being is held in place by using glue and epoxy, rather than the natural stone’s typical screws.

With the wide choice of colors, it’s easy to coordinate them with a unique kitchen backsplash or bathroom floor to create a dazzling focal point.

Advantages include:

  • Lack of porosity. Most stones are porous to some degree so, unless they are sealed regularly with a non-porous sealant, they’ll absorb stains. Being non-porous also means the countertops won’t become a shelter for bacteria and viruses, so there’s the cleanliness/sanitary issue.
    Thanks to modern manufacturing, these aren’t at all porous. Quartz kitchen countertops won’t absorb food stains, while the bathroom ones won’t absorb materials such as hair dye, which is almost impossible to remove, nail polishes, makeup, creams, and lotions.

  • Strength. Quartz countertops can take a lot of punishment, so it can hold up to corrosion from household products or oils. It can be damaged from excessive heat, so don’t place hot pots and pans on it, and don’t let it get direct sunlight or it’ll change colors.

  • Easy to care for. Besides not needing a sealant, they are scratch and stain resistant. Still, they do require routine cleaning with a stone-safe, non-abrasive product.

Quartz countertops are not jobs for the do-it-yourself installer. In fact, companies who sell or make this product certify their installers. It’s also quite a bit heavier than most other stones, so be sure to address any structural issues before proceeding.
