Many Color Options
Compared to granite and marble countertops, which come with a usual set of colors, quartz can have a lot more customizable when it comes to colors. This is because quartz is made from crushed-up rock material such as granite, marble, quartz, and glass that are specifically engineered by manufacturers. Since manufacturers have control over which material to use, it gives quartz countertops a lot more coloring options compared to its alternatives. You can take a look at which colors are offered with quartz on our website.
Durable and Strong!
Unlike marble and wooden countertops, quartz cannot be easily dented and scratched. It is almost as durable and strong as granite countertops, which are known for their diamond-hard durability! We have to mention though, with this durability comes weight - quartz countertops are quite heavy, almost as heavy granite countertops.
Quartz is basically no maintenance, because it is a non-porous material, meaning that water will not seep deep into it. Because it is a non-porous material, it does not have to be sealed, unlike granite which has to be sealed every 2 to 4 years. It is also great at resisting stains and bacteria, which adds to its low-maintenance nature!
Cheaper - Comparatively!
Yes, there are a lot of cheaper options on the market when it comes to countertops than quartz — such as wood, glass, concrete, tile, etc. But none of these cheaper options have the advantages that quartz brings, such as durability, non-porousness, resistance against stains and bacteria. While granite has these features as well, it is slightly more expensive than quartz. Marble is a whole different kettle of fish — probably the most expensive countertop material out there!
