Stunning Stone Choice

Quartz is an engineered stone made up of 90% natural quartz that is combined with a polymer resin to form slabs and resulting in a non porous surface. The other percentages consist of other minerals and stone byproducts.

Quartz Practicality and Functionality

Quartz, otherwise known as engineered stone, is a stunning stone choice. Quartz slabs are available in a wide variety of colors and work well in both contemporary and traditional-style settings, residential or commercial. It can be used for fireplaces or in kitchens, bars and restaurants. As well as in bathrooms for applications such as vanities, showers and tub surrounds because it is non porous. Non porous means Quartz can repel against moisture, air, other fluids and even bacteria because it is made to not have pores – one of its leading advantages.

Quartz can appear similar to almost any other stone such as granite, marble, concrete and even soapstone for a look you love and performs beyond your standards. Since this is an engineered stone, some slabs are similar to granite in appearance but are less random because the coloring and mineral makeup can be slightly manipulated in its formation process. In general, slabs are more common to come in an array of bold colors than natural stones. Quartz is a very hard and premium stone with similar features to granite, offering stain resistance and even more durability. If your looking for a stone to stand up to nearly anything, you’ve found it!

How to Maintain Quartz

Quartz does not generally require a lot of maintenance but should be kept through appropriate cleaning products. Quartz is, however, not heat proof and is vulnerable to fading in UV sunlight making it not ideal for direct sunlight or outdoor spaces.
