What is a Quartz Countertop?
First off, a quartz countertop is engineered. Bits of quartz are combined with a special resin to create a beautiful countertop. During the fabrication process, around 93% quartz is combined with 7% resin. The mixture is poured to shape and then it sets up. Since it is fabricated, larger sections of quartz can be used than slab from natural stone. If you have a kitchen that needs large slabs, or numerous curves, you might want to think about quartz. You have probably seen quartz without even realizing. Quartz isn’t just used for countertops. There are a lot of airports that have used quartz slabs on their floors. If you have been in a few airports, there is a high chance that you walked across quartz.
When Quartz is the Right Decision
One of the biggest reasons to go with quartz is because of its durability. Homeowners who have little children often want something that can handle a bit of abuse. Quartz is a great choice when you are looking for durability because it can handle children. Another good reason to go with quartz is if you do not like maintenance. With other stone surfaces, such as marble and granite, you will need to reapply the sealer that keeps the surface looking its best. That isn’t true with a quartz countertop. Quartz and the resin that binds it are extremely dense. This density makes it so you never have to add a coat of sealant. Your O’ Fallon quartz countertop will continue looking its best without the need for yearly, or biyearly maintenance. Selection is also a big benefit of a quartz countertop. Since quartz is engineered, the selection goes up significantly. The number of colors and styles outnumber any of the natural stones. If you are looking for a specific color, chances are, you will be able to find what you are looking for and you will be able to match your kitchen perfectly.
