The strength of Engineer Quartz, even in a manufactured form, makes it naturally resistant to abrasion, scratches, dents, and even acids without the need for sealants. It is a manmade product created mostly from natural materials to make the nonallergenic finished product and will last a lifetime, reducing the need for replacement. In this blog, we are going to explore 3 reasons why Quartz may be the best option for you!

1. Appearance

A popular countertop choice for either kitchen or bathroom, one of the main reasons for its exploding popularity is Quartz’s appearance. Quartz is an engineered stone made from crushed rock – 95 percent ground natural quartz, with the balance a resin. It has the look of stone but adds a clean, uniform look with consistent patterns and is available in stunning colours, allowing homeowners to easily customize the design.

"Quartz is a go-to choice for industry professionals as a result of its durable nature; making it the ideal surface for a number of different applications.”

Kelly Abisris - HanStone Quartz Canada said.

2. Stain Proof and Maintenance Free

This nonporous, nonabsorbent surface material is resistant to mold and mildew, scratches, stains, cracks, heat, and most household chemicals. It doesn’t need to be sealed or polished to maintain its finish. You can use it alone or for an integrated sink and countertop application.

“Quartz is maintenance-free and is most popular with starter and move-up buyers and has been the market leader for the past three years.”

Ly Mai – Design & Sales Consultant, estimating that about 75 percent of Zen’s residential installations are quartz.

3. Cost

Quartz remains one of the most popular choices for new builds and home renovation projects, despite the fact the marketplace for countertops has become more competitive in recent years.

Quartz maintains its popularity because its cost has remained reasonable in contrast to other products on the market such as Marble or Granite.

“Estate homeowners are usually looking for a one-of-a-kind countertop with the all-natural stone, that’s why exotic granite continues its appeal. But quartz is breaking into this segment with new products that mimic the natural look of granite.” Ly says.
