-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quartz

  • The colour, pattern and vein are very uniform on each quartz piece.

  • Quartz never needs to be sealed.

What are the advantages of Quartz Counter Tops?

Quartz has the strength of granite. It needs no sealing, is mold and mildew resistant. These counter tops also have a more uniform appearance across the span of the surface. The surface of Quartz is pretty durable, but it is not indestructible. It is resistant to stains from wine, food coloring and similar food products. However, harsh chemicals (like drain cleaners and floor strippers) and extended exposure to high heat can damage the surface.
