Gordon’s Carpet One is your home to a great selection of quartz countertops. Quartz is becoming more and more popular in home settings, and nowadays it’s one of the first choices when homeowners are designing their kitchens. Why? Let’s take a look at some of quartz’s advantages:
Appearance: Quartz countertops are made from over 90% real quartz, which is a natural material. As a result, quartz countertops do offer unique, natural looks similar to those of granite. But, because quartz countertops are also infused with engineered materials, their appearances can be controlled to a certain extent. What this means is that manufacturers can ensure that quartz countertops feature exactly the right colors and patterns.
Durability: Since quartz countertops are infused with materials such as resin, they are more durable than granite and marble countertops. They will resists spills and stains, and they also will not scratch and scuff. Plus, unlike granite, quartz does not need to be sealed for this extra protection.
Cleanliness: Quartz countertops are non-porous, which means that liquids will never seep past the surface. This is important because when liquids do seep past the surface, harmful mold and bacteria usually follow. Quartz is therefore one of the most sanitary countertops available, so it is great in kitchens and bathrooms.
Maintenance: Given its strength and durability, quartz is definitely easy to maintain. To keep the surface clean, you only need to routinely wipe with soap and water. Also, quartz never needs to be refinished or resealed.
