Unless you want a “showcase” countertop for your kitchen, you are looking for a material that performs a specific function. Kitchen countertops must be able to withstand the punishment that happens in a kitchen. This ranges from placing hot pots on the countertop without using a pot holder to using it as a cutting board. For such reasons many turn to quartz countertops.
Facts about Quartz
When considering quartz as a material for your kitchen or bathroom countertop, be informed. Be aware of the following facts:
1. Quartz countertops are constructed of stone-like materials. It is an agglomerate, a slurry of materials – a synthetic construct.
2. The “glue” holding the materials together is a resin
3. The slabs are created using heavy pressure
4. Fewer imperfections are present because the manufacturing process is a controlled one
The result is a beautifully formed creation. It is not only aesthetically stunning with availability in diverse colors and patterns, but it is also a product that is durable, hard and “naturally” stain, water and heat resistant. You do not have to seal them. Keeping them clean requires nothing more than a mild soap or detergent applied with a soft cloth.
Why Quartz Countertops?
Kitchen countertops must be durable, easy to clean, low maintenance and attractive. Many materials used in the construction of countertops achieve several of these selling points. However, only quartz can address these all successfully. This makes them ideal for use in the countertops and vanities found in kitchens and bathrooms across Minneapolis.
