Quartz is an excellent surface choice for many interior environments for a variety of reasons. Let's start with some of the obvious reasons; 1. Quartz is an extremely durable and low maintenance surface. It is easy to clean and does not need to be sealed. 2. Quartz offers consistency in color, pattern, finish and thickness. No surprises...What you see is what you get! 3. You can have unlimited design options. Quartz is available in many colors and designs that do not naturally occur in nature (optical solids, pure whites, absolute blacks, rich browns, electric blue, bright reds, etc). 4. Quartz can emulate the look and feel of natural stone without jeopardizing surface performance. Are you considering the beauty of marble, soapstone, limestone or concrete in your kitchen, but don't want to manage the risk of staining, pitting, etching, etc. Quartz is made to emulate the beauty of natural stone in select stone species that may not offer the best surface performance for the functional use of a kitchen, bathroom, shower or fireplace. 5. Quartz is stronger than most natural stone. It allows for deeper (longer) over hangs without unsightly supports (corbals, brackets, legs, underlayment, etc.). Its strength enables designs and fabricators to create designs and layouts with fewer seams without the added risk of breakage during the fabrication, installation and post-installation process. 6. What about making changes to your project after installation? No problem! Quartz provides you with the ability to make changes to your design post installation without concerns about color and design consistency associated with sourcing matching natural stone. So, yes, You can add that raised bar top, shelf, vanity, desk or backsplash that you now want. 7. Most quartz manufacturers offer a manufacturers product warranty to protect you from manufacturing defects.
