One of the most durable countertop options
Quartz is an engineered stone material that consists of quartz bound together by resin. This is then pressed into sheets, leaving you with quartz countertops. These counters consist of more or less 93% of quartz and 7% binding materials that include resins, polymers and pigments. We supply this product at Artmar, and it has become hugely popular in residential and commercial environments due to its ultra-durability and resistance to scratching – while still offering the look of natural stone.
Some may say that they still prefer 100% natural stone countertops, but once you know more about the benefits of quartz countertops, you may reconsider. On the surface, quartz offers almost the same characteristics as granite, and many argue that the appearance is also very similar. It is durable, strong, and beautiful. But, seeing that quartz is an engineered product, it also offers the following benefits:
- It is completely nonporous, making it stain resistant.
- It does not require sealing or resealing.
- Due to the resin blend, quartz is already sealed, which means that these countertops require very little maintenance.
- Quartz is nearly indestructible and is therefore a long-term investment for property owners.
- It offers more design possibilities which makes it a more flexible choice.
- It is available in a wide range of colours, allowing for more décor possibilities.
- Quartz tops are easy to keep clean – all you’ll need is a soft cloth, mild soap and water.
