Explore the characteristics of quartz:
Quartz is a close runner up to granite for use in kitchens and bathrooms and is also used for commercial purposes, floors, walls and tile-sized projects.
It is very similar in size to granite; quartz slabs are 52” to 63’’ high by 118” to 130’’ long by approximately 2 to 3cm thick. More flexible and adjustable, your granite slab countertops can be variations of these sizes to meet your needs.
A manmade substance, quartz countertops are made from 90-95% quartz and 5-10% resins and binders. This combination creates an amazingly durable countertop without pores or cracks. Quartz is non-porous which means it will never need sealing. These countertops are stain-resistant and require little to no maintenance. However, quartz counters are not as heat resistant as granite countertops, so you should not set a hot pan down without something under it.
Are you wondering why quartz is gaining popularity among homeowners and designers? Have a look at the benefits of getting quartz countertops in Oakville:
Nonporous: Because of the way quartz is created, it creates a nonporous surface. This means that there aren’t any gaps or cracks where spills or liquids could soak in.
Durable: As quartz countertops are man-made, they are made up of approximately 90% quartz and 10% binding polymers and coloured pigments. This high quartz content makes these countertops strong and durable.
Excellent design possibilities: Other natural stones are available only in colours that occur naturally. But because quartz is produced, it can be created in a range of colours and styles.
Low maintenance: Quartz countertops don’t require any sealant or wax coating, which means that they require less maintenance than other countertop materials.
The following are some commonly asked questions about our quartz countertops in Oakville:
What Colour Options Does Quartz Offer?
Our quartz countertops are incredibly versatile, and we offer numerous colour options. If you'd like to know whether we have a particular colour, we invite you to speak to us.
Should I Avoid Any Chemicals on Quartz?
When cleaning your quartz countertop, we advise using cleaners with a pH between 5-8. Furthermore, oil soaps, toilet bowl cleaners, grill cleaners, furniture cleaners, and similar products can be damaging.
Are Quartz Countertops Unbreakable?
Quartz is an incredibly durable material, and it is unlikely that you will damage them through use unless you're very rough. We recommend using cutting boards and hot pads between hot tools on your countertop.
Are Quartz Countertops Seamless?
The seamlessness of your quartz countertop depends entirely on your property's dimensions. Quartz slabs have a maximum length- generally 125” L x 65” W. If the area you want to install the countertop over measures more than this, your countertop will require seaming.
Care and Maintenance
Quartz countertops are non-porous and do not need to be sealed, so you never have to worry about resealing and the costs associated to that process. Quartz countertops can be cleaned simply with a damp towel or light cleaner such as a vinegar/water solution or non-bleach and non-abrasive household cleaners. After removing a spill, wipe your counter down with clean water and dry it with a paper towel or white cloth.
