Custom Quartz Countertops

Why choose quartz countertops for your custom renovation project? Quartz is an engineered material that is able to combine the durability that you often don’t get with natural stones, while maintaining the look of popular stone products like granite. And because these products are man-made with the quartz mineral, countertops and other quartz products can be custom designed and engineered to fit any renovation project.

Why else are custom quartz countertops a good custom renovation solution? Here’s a look at some of the benefits of quartz:

Benefits of Quartz Countertops

  • Quartz is non-porous:
    In the kitchen environment, non-porous translates better to being sanitary. That’s because there’s nowhere for bacteria, germs and liquids to embed, so it’s generally a healthier solution than the alternatives. This doesn’t mean that you don’t need to clean the countertops, but they’re less likely to spread germs or aid in cross contamination. Because it is non-porous, it also means that it is more resistant to staining.
  • No sealer required:
    Because quartz countertops are non-porous, they don’t need to be sealed. This, in turn, means that they’re easier to maintain.
  • Many colour choices:
    Because Quartz countertops are man-made, they are available in many different colours and styles. they also offer uniformity of design across the slab, as opposed to the busyness of natural stones.

Since Quartz is an engineered product, it is a great option for any custom renovation project. Aside from kitchen countertops, quartz has a bevy of other potential applications around the home. For instance, it’s becoming more and more used in the areas surrounding fireplaces. It’s also an ideal material for the surface of basement or garage wet bars because it is non-porous, and it can be used in bathrooms as well.
