This month’s focus is on Quartz, what it is, how it’s made, and other important tid-bits! Get the scoop on our blog HERE, then check out our Design Consultants’ helpful advice as you move forward with your project.

1. No surprises here!

Since quartz is a manufactured stone, quartz is 95% consistent from slab to slab. That means you’ll know exactly what you’re getting and won’t have to spend any extra time tagging a slab!

2. Don’t have much time for maintenance?

Since Quartz is maintenance-free, you won’t need to worry about resealing your quartz countertops every year! If you want to save even more time, consider a Full Height Backsplash for your next project and eliminate the grout of a traditional tile backsplash.

3. Aiming for a perfect match?

While quartz is 95% consistent from slab-to-slab, if you’re opting for a color or pattern with heavy veining and lots of negative space, matching seams perfectly is impossible. Our Engineers do their best to match up seams as well as they can but if this might bother you, consider softer veins or something with a consistent pattern. Learn more about color and pattern expectations here.
