Countertop installation is a simple yet effective way to upgrade your home. Kitchen or bathroom countertops are often the focal point of a kitchen or bathroom. When a countertop is well-designed, it can beautify and structure your home in a way that’s often unmatched. Deciding to invest in countertop installation is a no-brainer. The challenging part is picking a material that best suits your home and lifestyle since there are a few solid choices that we offer. Today we’ll focus on quartzite. Here are some of the top questions that people ask about quartzite.
Why is Quartzite a Sound Investment?
Quartzite has become increasingly popular over the years. Homeowners and interior designers alike love the material. Why? Its sophistication, along with its durability and classic, earth-toned colors, makes it a staple regarding countertop installation.
Are Quartzite and Quartz the Same Material?
Quartzite and quartz are not the same, although people are often confused by the two. Quartzite is a natural stone, while quartz is a human-made material made by combining colored crushed stone and resin. Quartzite, in contrast, is a metamorphic rock that starts as sandstone and then evolves under heat and pressure. The natural stone is then cut into slabs that we use for countertop installation. We can also apply quartzite to a vanity, which is one of many ways to give your bathroom a much-needed makeover.
What are the Pros and Cons of a Quartzite Countertop?
There aren’t many, if any, cons to having a quartzite countertop installed. Homeowners love the material because it can replicate more expensive materials such as marble without all of the extra maintenance. Remembering to seal your quartzite countertop once a year will keep it brand-new looking. Most countertop materials are durable and stain-resistant. However, none of them are indestructible.
What Color Selections are Available?
Quartzite comes in a variety of natural hues. These hues range from white to gray to beige. While earth-tones are most common, quartzite can come in shades of blue, green, pink, and red. The color variation depends on how much iron oxide is present along with the natural stone’s region, and the age of the natural stone.
