before replacing a countertop with quartz countertops

Why is a quartz countertop still the top choice for a home or kitchen remodeling project? One reason is its competitive pricing compared to granite or marble. Of course, that is only one of many reasons to go with this attractive natural stone option.

Quartz countertop manufacturers work with ground quartz and resins, primarily creating these countertops from recycled material. So, it is also an eco-friendly option with less mining and waste.

In this post, the remodeling experts from I&E Cabinets, Inc share even more benefits of using quartz as your preferred countertop material.

The Benefits Of Quartz for Beautiful Countertops

Quartz instantly improves the appearance of a room. For instance, it is an ideal choice for your next kitchen renovation since well-installed countertops last decades without fading or wearing away.

Quartz offers great value thanks to the following benefits:

1 Durability

Quartz is one of the most durable materials available for a kitchen remodel. Reputable manufacturers are so confident in quartz’s durability that most offer excellent warranties. Its benefits also include the following:

  • Scratch resistant
  • Difficult to stain
  • Handles daily use better than natural stones

While quartz is heat resistant, the resins and polymers used in a countertop’s creation may melt and discolor with excessive heat. I&E Cabinets, Inc recommends keeping scalding pots and pans from directly touching the surface for the best results.

2 Versatility

A new countertop comes in a wide variety of colors to complement any style. Choose natural quartz colors, such as off-white or light gray, or add a splash of color to your home with virtually any custom pigment. Put it in bathrooms, kitchens, above fireplaces, and more, as it is far more customizable than granite countertops or natural stone countertops.

3 Low Maintenance

The durability benefit means that regular maintenance is unnecessary. Other materials require specialty cleaners to maintain their appearance, but quartz will look brand new with soap and water. Other countertops may require polishing, resealing, or reconditioning, but quartz retains its beauty without much effort.

4 Non-Porous

Quartz countertops prevent liquid from seeping into the wood or other materials below it. Non-porosity is a considerable benefit that keeps quartz from staining and discoloring even after years of use and spills. Even notorious red wine spills should have little to no effect.

The non-porous nature of quartz also makes it easy to sterilize since bacteria have no hiding place while you clean. A quick wipe-down with a sterilizing cleanser will keep the family healthy.

5 Quality Control

Suppliers manufacture engineered quartz countertops in a laboratory. The manufacturer controls its appearance and structure, which means it doesn’t have the same inconsistencies. Fissures, pits, and imperfect colorations are common in natural stone and granite, whereas you can tailor quartz to your exact specifications.
