Quartz goes beyond being able to withstand the day to day wear and tear of household and kitchen use. Quartz is an incredibly strong material. This is because Quartz is manufactured by finely grinding quartz which has been naturally mined and then combining it with a polymer resin for additional hardness.
If you treat it well, you will never need to buy another countertop again. (unless you fancy a change, of course 🙂
Quartz is both striking and durable
The beauty of quartz is once installed and you don’t need to worry about replacing it or even constantly maintaining it.
This low maintenance aspect of quartz is down to its durability as it is safe from erosion and stains from cleaning products and cooking oils.
Quartz also doesn’t need to be repeatedly resealed.
Granite is one of the leading materials for kitchens, bathrooms, fireplaces, and outdoors. The majority of people don’t seem to realise why it has maintained its popularity for so long, especially for kitchens. The main reason for its popularity is its durability, versatility, and flexibility. When it comes to kitchens, you need a countertop that can handle heavy usage. As granite it’s resistant to heat and highly durable, it fits that bill perfectly.
Thanks to its manufacturing process, quartz is antimicrobial. This prevents bacteria from growing on the countertop which can result in mould, mildew, and disease.
As it’s manufactured, Quartz comes in a variety of colours. It can also be shaped into fashionable countertops making it highly adaptable to any design.

You should always consider return on investment when undertaking any home improvement project, even if you have no immediate plans to move. Countertops see a lot of action, and tend to age. However, quartz you don't have to worry about this.
When it comes to the cleaning of your new quartz countertop all you’ll need is a damp cloth or kitchen roll along with a non-abrasive, bleach free cleaner. Quartz is fairly resistant to stains, but you should still clean up any spills immediately. While it is heat resistant, you should still use trivets for hot pots or pans. Additionally, you should still use a chopping board for all of your cutting and slicing. It is durable, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to take precautions. Remember, any surface can be damaged when treated to the extreme.
