What is Quartz?

Quartz is an engineered stone surface which is made of 90-94% crushed stone, mainly quartz, bound together by an adhesive. Quartz is not mined like natural stones but instead is engineered in a factory. In the past, quartz did not have many color options, but now with today’s technology, quartz has a huge variety of different colors and styles.

Caring for Quartz Countertops

Since quartz is non-porous, it’s very easy to care for. For daily cleaning you can simply use water, dish soap, paper towels, or a damp sponge. Because it’s not a porous stone, quartz is very stain-resistant, especially when compared to most other countertop materials. You also never need to seal quartz since it’s a non-porous stone. However, because of the composition of quartz, heat and light from the sun and heat from pots and pans can damage the color of it.
