Quartz has all the advantages of natural stone including hardness, durability, and beauty, but with the added benefits and value from quality engineering. Engineered quartz is more maintenance-friendly than natural stone such as marble, granite or quartzite. It is not porous so will not house bacteria, and it does not need to be sealed like other natural stone. Quartz is available in the widest range of colors, is lower-maintenance and more durable, but cannot be used outdoors as the dyes in the resin will fade and turn yellow with exposure to sunlight.
Quartz surfaces are manufactured from crushed quartz mixed with pigment and resin, offering the appearance of natural stone. The resin binder reinforces the strength of the material, resulting in a more chip and scratch resistant surface than natural stone alternatives. Quartz does not need to be sealed. If you love the style and benefits of natural stone without the added level of care, quartz is an ideal alternative for your interior.
