Quartz for kitchens and bathrooms has gained significant popularity in recent years due to its durability and versatility. Composed of natural ground quartz and a small percentage of polymer resins, quartz combines the appearance of natural stone with the longevity and range of colors of an engineered countertop material. Unlike many types of natural stone countertops, quartz countertops are resistant to staining and other damage from cooking oils, liquids, or other kitchen hazards, some are even UV resistant. They are also nonporous, so you don’t have to worry about resealing the surface periodically or dealing with bacteria lingering in the countertop. Plus, with the wide array of colors available, you can choose the ideal shade to suit your home or business.
Quartz countertops are typically made up of about 90-95% ground natural quartz and 5-10% resins, polymers, and pigments to hold the countertop together and create the desired color. Resin combined with the stone forms an extremely hard, durable surface that resembles granite without the propensity for stains. The quartz countertop offerings come in an extensive array of colors, allowing you to choose from different styles and appearances. Coarser-ground quartz typically leads to a flecked, textured appearance, while finely ground quartz produces a more uniform, smooth look. Our home design team can help you select the perfect color and grain size to complement your other aesthetic choices.
Environmental Impact of Quartz:
Quartz is an extremely abundant material, making quartz countertops a relatively low environmental impact material. Additionally, the abundance of this mineral typically makes it easy to source the materials locally, cutting down on emissions during transportation. Many of our quartz providers have been certified by GREENGUARD as low-emitting companies, and other brands mine and manufacture their quartz countertop products entirely in the USA.

Tile is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal, or even glass, generally used for covering roofs, floors, walls, showers, or other objects such as tabletops. Tiling stone is typically marble, onyx, granite, or slate.
Natural Stone refers to products quarried from the earth, used over thousands of years as building materials and decorative enhancements. These products include Granite, Marble, Limestone, Travertine, Slate, Quartzite, Sandstone, Adoquin, Onyx, and others.
Unlike natural stone countertops cut from pure granite, marble, or sandstone, engineered stone counters are made from quartz crystals held together with a resin binder. They have a similar appearance to natural stone, but they possess benefits not available with natural materials.
