Quartz Countertops

Engineered Quartz

Engineered Quartz Stone has all the beauty of natural stone without the maintenance.
Quartz kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities are the worry-free alternative to higher maintenance granite kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities. They are twice as strong as granite, quartz counters require no resealing, are highly resistant to scratches and stains, and come in a large variety of colors.
The appearance of the quartz counters varies depending on the size and mix of the granules. Smaller, finer crystals give a more uniform appearance, while larger ones provide a more mottled look.

Advantages of Quartz Countertops

Strength & Durability- Engineered Quartz Surfaces are twice as strong as granite.

Maintenance Free – No sealing, polishing or reconditioning is needed. Simply wash with warm water. It’s that simple. Plus, unlike granite, Engineered Quartz Stone Surfaces will resist stains from common food items such as wine, coffee and tea.

Food Safe – Unlike granite, Engineered Quartz countertops have been certified by NSF International as safe for use as a food preparation surface. Engineered Quartz countertops are nonporous; therefore, food and moisture cannot penetrate the surface which is the the main source of growth for harmful bacteria.

All Natural – Engineered Quartz Countertops are created from pure natural quartz, an extremely hard stone; the hardest non-precious stone that can be found in the earth’s surface.

Everlasting Value – With its beauty and performance advantages over granite, an Engineered Quartz kitchen countertop, bathroom vanity or tub surround will add value to your home.

Guaranteed – Most Quartz Countertops carry at least a ten or fifteen year or limited warranty.
