While the dizzying array of color choices for quartz countertops is one of the main reasons people in Raleigh install quartz countertops, the incredible indestructible characteristics of engineered quartz is also a major benefit.

Non-porous for Your Kitchen or Bath

Another benefit of quartz countertops is that they are non porous. This is one reason why they are more sanitary in the kitchen. It is easy to keep a quartz countertop clean and bacteria-free.

Because quartz is not porous, it resists staining from oils and other liquids. Quartz also does not have to be resealed like other stone countertops. Quartz is able to defend against absorption of wine, lemon juice, tea, wine, fruits and vegetables without permanently staining or damaging the counters

Being stain and bacteria resistant are reasons why quartz is approved for use in food service, medical facilities, schools, hospitality and other businesses where long-lasting durability, hygiene and design flexibility are essential.

Quartz Countertops Offer Endless Design Options

Quartz countertops also provide a wide variety of edging  and design options, just like natural stone countertops. Additionally, quartz provides design opportunities that are not possible with natural stone. Engineered quartz is more flexible to work with than natural stone and does not have any natural fissures or faults. As a result, quartz can be used in many applications that are just not suitable for a natural stone countertop.

Caring for your Quartz Countertops

As solid as quartz countertops are, they can be damaged by high heat. However, many people in Raleigh install quartz countertops in their kitchen and simply use trivets or heating pads.

The best way to clean manufactured quartz counters is with warm water and non-abrasive cleanser. This means avoid a powdery abrasive cleaner meant for the bathtub or toilet.

You can spray most regular cleaners onto manufactured quartz counter tops and wash them clean with a sponge or dish towel. They will make your quartz countertop look as good as new again.

No sealing is required with quartz counter tops. This is how resistent quartz is to stains.

While manufactured quartz countertops are similar to granite kitchen counters, they generally have a more uniform appearance than granite. Granite can have some rather dramatic and bold patterns that form in nature, while manufactured quartz countertops are man-made and the patterns tend to be uniform.
