About Quartz Countertops
Quartz countertops combine the natural beauty and shine of granite with the durability of Corian. These countertops offer natural looks because they are made almost totally from real quartz. In fact, most quartz countertops are considered over 90% quartz! However, since the rest of the countertop is made from engineered materials, quartz countertops do offer premium strength and resistance.
Furthermore, since quartz countertops are solidified with other materials such as glass, they offer looks that you won’t find in nature! So, if you want a unique style but are worried about strength and durability, quartz countertops may be your best option.
Quartz vs Granite
Quartz countertops are considered an alternative to granite countertops. For the most part, quartz looks exactly like granite, although quartz countertops are not made entirely from natural materials like granite. Given this construction, quartz is more durable than granite. Quartz is not porous like granite, so it remains bacteria-free. So, if you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, quartz is a great option because it can handle spills and stains better than granite. Quartz can, however, be damaged if it is exposed to significant heat.
