Quartz countertops provide the strength and appearance of natural stone countertops. In terms of practicality, quartz is superior to natural stone. Much like marble and granite, quartz is on the market in a slab format. But the benefits of using Granite au Sommet Quartz countertops exceed any benefits you can get from other countertop materials. Their benefits include the following:
Quartz Countertops are Non-porous
Quartz is a non-porous material, which means it resists stains. Thus, as long as you wipe away any liquid spilled on your quartz countertops, you won’t have any concerns. Granite and marble are porous, so they easily absorb moisture and liquids. Over time, your granite countertop may absorb juice, wine, and oils that are not easy to get rid of. In addition, quartz countertops do not require sealing. Other materials require period sealing to prevent stains.
Apart from being non-porous, quartz countertops do not require regular maintenance. You can just wipe down any spills without requiring the use of special cleaners. Meanwhile, natural stone requires the use of special cleaners to avoid etching. With quartz, you can just use soap and water for cleaning the countertop.
A kitchen is a busy place, so you must invest in a countertop that can withstand everything. Quartz is quite durable and strong. Thus, they can be used for all kitchen needs without causing damage to them. Also, they are resistant to heat, which means you can relax and use your countertop without worrying about caring for it constantly.
