There are many benefits of a quartz countertop:
1. QUARTZ IS TOUGH AND DURABLE
Quartz countertops are man-made slabs of stone, which means they are made up of about 90%quartz and 10% binding polymers and colored pigments. This high quartz content makes these countertops exceptionally hard and durable. The durability of this material makes it a great option for countertops where you will probably be banging down pots, pans, knives, cups, and plates. Quartz is tough and will be very resistant to scratches, chips, and stains. The durability of these countertops allows them last for many years. You’ll be able to enjoy your quartz countertops for years without worrying about ﬁxing chips, scratches, or cracks.
2. QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS ARE NONPOROUS
Because of how quartz countertops are engineered, it creates a nonporous surface. This means that there aren’t any holes or cracks where spills or liquids could soak in. This is one of the beneﬁts of quartz countertops for a few reasons. First of all, it means that the countertop is much more resistant to staining compared to porous countertops. A nonporous surface is also much more sanitary. Without any cracks or holes, it is much harder for bacteria, viruses, or other germs to become lodged into the counter. The smooth, nonporous surface also makes it much easier to wipe down and clean, which adds to the cleanliness of a quartz countertop as well.
3. EASY TO MAINTAIN
Countertops made of natural stone, like granite or concrete, must have a sealant or wax coated on top of it. One of the beneﬁts of quartz countertops is that they don’t need any sealant or wax coating. This means that quartz countertops require less maintenance compared to other countertop materials. And because quartz countertops are nonporous surfaces, they are super easy to clean and maintain. You won’t have to worry about getting stains out with an intense scrubbing session like you would with other countertop materials. Simply wipe them down with a cleaning wipe or with a cloth, soap, and water, and it will be all set.
