What You Need to Know About Quartz Counter Surfaces

If you're looking for a new counter surface or are building a home, quartz is an option that you should definitely consider! A quartz countertop slab is durable, stylish, and can look great in just about any home. Furthermore, there are multiple types of quartz natural stone surfaces that you can choose from, which means that you'll be able to get a look that's perfect for your kitchen or space.

There are many reasons why you should choose  natural stone for your space. They are great because they are always unique. Since they occur naturally, no two slabs will ever be the same, which means that you may have the same type of stone as someone else, but yours will always have some unique qualities. This is great for those homeowners who like to be trendy while still keeping it a bit specific and unique to themself. 

Natural stone is also great because it is super durable and easy to maintain. Once you choose your natural stone, you can look at what exactly you must do to maintain it, but typically it doesn't take much. Since most of these stones have a sealant on top, they are much less likely to be damaged. This will save you money in the long run from replacements and repairs. So, why should you consider quartz for your home? 

Why you should consider a quartz counter surface for your home

Quartz is quite easy to maintain. Not only are they easy to maintain and exceptionally durable, but they're also non-porous. This means that you don't have to worry about anything from the food you prepare on them getting into cracks and crevices within the counter surface. In fact, it's around as non-porous as ceramic tile, and it's significantly less porous than a granite counter surface!

The fact that a quartz countertop slab is non-porous means that it's far less likely to be stained than many other types of surfaces that are available. Most people with a quartz counter find that they're able to use it for years without needing to replace it or repair any sort of dings, scratches, chips, or cracks.

Therefore, you won't have to worry about the cost of redoing your counters when you decide that it's time to sell your home! Also, quartz is even more durable than granite counters, which are also known for being exceptionally durable.

How to maintain a quartz counter surface

All you need to do in order to keep it clean is wash down the quartz counter with soap, water, and a cloth or sponge! That's because quartz counters already have a sealant applied to them, which makes it possible to easily wipe off any stains or spots on your counter surface.

What type of quartz counter surface should you choose?

A quartz countertop slab is available in a wide range of colors, which include white, rose, and gray; however, there's no one size fits all answer when it comes to the type of quartz that you should choose. Luckily, the range of options means that you'll be able to find the product that's right for you!
