Quartz Countertops are not just natural Quartz crystals. Quartz used in countertops are man-engineered stones comprised of natural quartz bonded by polymers. It can be manufactured in many different colors, patterns and styles. It is an excellent choice for homeowners who want the beauty and depth of natural stone with the stain-resistance of manufactured materials such as solid surface and laminate all for a mid-range price.
Perfect For Kitchens
While quartz is made of all natural materials, it has several key differences that set it apart from other materials like granite and marble. Firstly, since quartz is an engineered stone, it can be more uniform in its design. Quartz is also non-porous, so it will be less affected by spills than granite and marble. While not quite as hard as granite, quartz is still very chip and scratch resistant. Quartz requires minimal upkeep, and can be cleaned with everyday household products. Quartz is very vulnerable to extreme heat, so one should take care to avoid placing hot pans or curling irons on it. Also, quartz does have very visible seams which can be a distraction and might break the flow of the aesthetic in your design.
Tough, beautiful, and uniform in design, quartz is the perfect countertop material for a messy family or a busy lifestyle. Come see our selection at Amarillo Plastic Fabricators, our staff will be delighted to assist you in your decision.
