What is quartz?
Quartz is an engineered stone material that consists of quartz chips bound together by resin. This is then pressed into sheets, in turn serving as the compound for quartz countertops. These counters consist of approximately 93% quartz and 7% binding materials that include resins, polymers and pigments.
Our countertops can be manufactured with either individual stones, for individuals wanting the stones to be visible within the resin, or dust for those wanting a more uniform and diverse colour.
Why choose quartz countertops?
Some may say that they prefer 100% natural stone countertops, but once you know more about the benefits of quartz counters, you may reconsider. Besides the appearance of these materials being very similar, the benefits offered by quartz are almost identical to that of granite. These benefits include:
- It is completely nonporous, making it stain-resistant.
- It does not require sealing or resealing as granite countertops do.
- Due to the resin blend, these countertops require very little maintenance.
- Quartz is virtually indestructible, making it a superb long-term investment.
- It offers more design possibilities which makes it a more flexible choice.
- It is available in a wide range of colours, allowing for more décor possibilities.
- Quartz tops are easy to keep clean and well-maintained.
Some questions commonly asked about quartz countertops:
Thanks to the resins and polymers mixed within the quartz, these countertops are resistant to staining. Quartz countertops are non-porous which prevents any kind of staining substances from entering its pores, thereby preventing discolouration.
To protect your quartz tops, try to only use cleaning products with a pH balance between 5-8. Harsh cleaning products such as oven grill cleaners, toilet cleaners, drain products or furniture cleaners could cause damage to your countertop’s surface. If your countertop is exposed to such cleaning products, be sure to rinse with water immediately.
Quartz is available in large sizes, but should you require a top that is bigger than our largest slab, it will need to be seamed. However, our team’s experience allows us to place and blend any seams to be inconspicuous.
As it is mixed with certain polymers, quartz tops are not as resistant to heat as 100% natural stone. Therefore, care should be taken and hot objects such as pots and pans should never be placed directly onto your countertop.
