We will look at the benefits of Quartz to understand why it could be the material you choose for your counter tops. To start with Quartz is durable and doesn’t chip or crack easily. This is a good start and essential for counter tops.
There is no question that Quartz countertops are attractive to look at. They are beautiful slabs of rock made of natural minerals. Their intricate design due to rock formations is a natural beauty. Also, the shine of the countertop is attractive to look at.

From calm, muted tones to bold, bright. The manufacturing process allows a much wider range of colours than you’ll find in natural stones such as marble or granite.
Quartz has a great value and is at a competitive price to granite. Quartz is also on the rise. It is only really because of the history of granite and its relationship with the wealthy that it is considered more luxurious in comparison to Quartz.
4. Resist Stains
Quartz is non-porous so it is stain resist and so a perfect material for the kitchen. It stands up to juice, oil, wine, tomato, coffee and other sources of stains in the kitchen. A non-porous surface means it will not harbor bacteria or viruses. The cleanliness of the material is a great benefit.
