The Advantage of Quartz Countertops

Quartz is one of the hardest materials you can use for your countertop. Unlike natural stone, quartz is an engineered product. This means it’s man-made. The process in which quartz countertops are made involves crushing and (in some cases) dying natural quartz. This quartz quartz is then bonded using a resin adhesive and polished. Some materials can even be honed.

Three major benefits of quartz surfaces include:

  1. Stain resistance
  2. Scratch resistance
  3. Heat resistance
  4. Limited-lifetime warranty

It’s really important to understand that these materials are “resistant,” not impervious. Quartz can still be stained, scratched, and burned…. It just takes a LOT to do that.
