Using Quartz for Your Countertop Needs

Quartz Countertops: Locally Owned & Operated Company
Quartz countertops really are a crystal that captures and reflects light. As a result, a kitchen or office that uses quartz countertops can expect a more open atmosphere. Quartz countertops actually come in hundreds of colors and can be designed to match your kitchen, bath or office space.
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. Unlike granite, quartz is not heat resistant, and can show symptoms of damage from contact with very 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 causes of kitchen stains.
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. To learn more about Quartz Countertops in Mobile, Alabama please contact us today!
