Quartz Countertops in Lafayette, Indiana
Quartz is a crystal that captures and reflects light.
Quartz countertops come in a wide selection of colors and can be designed to match your preferences.
Using Quartz for Your Countertop Needs
Quartz is a countertop material often compared to granite. Though it is sometimes called Engineered Stone, it is actually still a natural mineral material, and using quartz for counters has many advantages.
Pros and Cons of Quartz Countertops
With its natural beauty, quartz counters can appear quite delicate. But quartz is actually twice as strong as granite. It isn’t fracture proof, but it’s close. However, unlike granite, quartz is not heat resistant, and can show signs of wear from contact with hot surfaces.
Quartz has the added advantage of being stain resistant without extra treatment, meaning that you don’t need to seal it or recondition it. Quartz can still be stained by harsh chemicals (so you should only clean quartz countertops using soap and water), but it will resist the most common culprits of kitchen stains, including dark wines and red sauces.
As a mineral, quartz is naturally nonabsorbent, and countertops made of quartz provide no place for bacteria to live or grow. In fact, quartz countertops are NSF certified, meaning that they are safe to use as a food preparation surface.
Adding Beauty to Strength
Quartz counters really are made of quartz, a crystal that captures and reflects light. As a result, a kitchen or office that uses quartz countertops can expect a more open atmosphere. When most people think of quartz, they picture the most common rose quartz, a pale pink stone. But quartz countertops actually come in hundreds of colors and can be designed to match your kitchen, bath or office space.
