Kitchens are one of the most used rooms in a home and experience considerable wear and tear. Quartz countertops can take it. They are made by grinding natural stone aggregate, adding a small number of polymers, removing the air, then shaping and heating the material. The result is a slab that has the look and hardness of natural stone. No natural stone is explicitly quarried for quartz countertops, which makes them eco-friendly.
As one of the first things people notice when they enter a kitchen or bath, beautiful countertops can increase your home’s resale value. Quartz slabs can be manufactured to look like granite, marble, and various other natural materials. The polished finish gives them a luxurious look, while the non-porous surface makes them incredibly durable, resistant to heat, scratching, and chemicals. Sealing is not needed for quartz countertops, which makes for hassle-free maintenance.
