Going with Quartz
When you think of an upgrade, you want something better. When you have laminated particle board in your kitchen that is showing signs of age, you are going to want a worthwhile upgrade that will add both function and form. If you are thinking about quartz, then here are the forms and functions you can look forward to having in your home.
- The Form
- A quartz countertop is quite a bit different from marble, soapstone, or granite. When you think of a stone countertop, you think of a large rock quarried out of the mountain and fabricated into sheets that make up stunning countertops. Quartz is not like that. Quartz is engineered. We take quartz, which is just as hard as granite, and mix it with a bonding resin that allows us to form sheets of quartz for countertops. In case you were wondering, a quartz countertop is made up of around 93 percent quartz and around 7 percent resin. Most of your countertop will be natural quartz. Since quartz is an engineered surface, you will notice that there is a lot of selection. You can find quartz that is made to look like granite, or even has the brilliant veins of color of marble. Also, the number of colors and patterns with quartz is more than any other stone countertop. Any type of color or design can be added to the mixing process when you go with quartz. If you have decided on a quartz countertop, come into our showroom with a color sample. You will be able to peruse our different varieties until you settle on the perfect fit for your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room. When it comes to selection, nothing beats quartz.
- The Function
- Looks aren’t everything. You are also going to want a countertop that adds function. One of the best functions of quartz is its durability. On a scale ranking geological surfaces for hardness (called the Mohs Hardness Scale), quartz ranks out at a number seven. Since the scale tops out at 10 with diamonds, a seven on the hardness scale means that quartz is a pretty hard material. In fact, quartz and granite are around the same range on the hardness scale. That means your quartz countertop can easily withstand everyday use. You will be pleased with its durability. Another function of quartz is its super low maintenance. Other stone surfaces will require you to add a layer of sealant every once in a while to maintain its beauty. Even granite countertops need to be resealed. This isn’t true with a quartz countertop. Quartz countertops are so dense, that they do not need a seal coat, nor do they ever need to be sealed with a sealant. If you install a quartz countertop, you will not need to worry much about maintenance.
