Uses for 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.
Very similar in size to granite, quartz slabs are 52” to 56” high by 118” to 120” 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.
How Quartz Is Made
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 in comparison to other countertop materials.
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.
