Quartz is the most common mineral on this planet. It is a component of almost every rock type and exists in an impressive range of varieties of patterns and colours. Quartz is the most durable manufactured stone you can purchase for a worktop surface. Thanks to increased manufacturer product development, quartz countertops are in high demand for new and remodelled homes and businesses throughout the country.
Quartz worktops are manufactured with up to 93% quartz and 7% pigments and resins. Being a man-made material the colour of each piece is controlled so colour variation is not an issue on jobs that require more than one slab.
Quartz worktops offer a sophisticated elegance and timeless beauty to any home or business. Because of its luxury and durability quartz counter tops are growing in popularity because they have the appearance of natural stone with none of the maintenance.
Since quartz is harder and less porous than granite, maintenance and aftercare is very minimal. Keeping it clean only requires an occasional wash with warm, soapy water and a dishcloth. Because quartz is less porous staining, mould and bacteria are not an issue.
Although durable, it is not scratch-proof; it could be damaged with excessive force or pressure. Quartz worktops have four times the strength and double the impact resistance of granite. If you should ever need to repair it, your quartz worktop will easily look brand new again, because it is a man-made substance and it is easier to achieve a seamless look.
