Quartz Countertops- High Design, Low Maintenance

Engineered quartz countertops are becoming an increasingly popular option for today’s kitchens and bathrooms. Quartz can have the look of natural stone surfaces like granite or marble. It also comes in an array of beautiful colors and designs for a very contemporary feel. Homeowners can achieve a high end look with a product that is more durable than natural stone and requires much less maintenance.

Facts About Quartz CountertopsLuxury Quartz Countertops

This man-made product consists of approximately 93-94 percent ground quartz and 6-7 percent polyester resin or binding material. Color and pattern are consistent throughout the slab. The surface is extremely hard and resists scratches, chips, and cracking. Because engineered quartz countertops are nearly indestructible, they are an excellent choice for busy households with children. The non-porous surface does not easily stain so wine, juice, coffee, and tomato sauce spills are easily wiped away. There is no need to periodically reseal the countertops like granite and marble countertops.

Keep Up With Maintenance

To clean a quartz countertop, just wipe the surface with soap and water. Strong chemicals or abrasive cleaners should not be used. Quartz countertops are more hygienic than natural stone and wood products because the non-porous surface leaves no nooks and crannies for bacteria and mold to grow. This is an important factor to consider in kitchens and bathrooms.

Downsides of Quartz

One of the only downsides to quartz is that it can be damaged by high heat. To avoid heat damage, hot pans should be placed on a trivet or hot plate. Quartz is also not recommended for use in outdoor settings, as direct sun can cause colors to fade over time.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
