If you are in the market for a new countertop for your kitchen renovation project, you need to seriously look at using quartz! It’s one of the strongest materials you can find on earth which makes it great to use in your kitchen.

The aesthetics that quartz will bring to your kitchen are unmatched by any other material on the market. Quartz begins as crystals found in the earth that undergo a specific process where you can customize the look to create a beautiful and extremely durable countertop for your kitchen.

How Quartz is Manufactured

Your quartz countertop will be made from about 93% crushed quartz and 7% polymers. This recipe results in a countertop that is stain resistant, heat resistant, practically scratch proof and virtually maintenance free. Through this manufacturing process, you can change the colour of the counter to pretty much any colour you can dream of!

With granite countertops, there are a limited amount of colours and tones you can choose from and there is no way to manufacture it to react like quartz where you can get any colour you want. Changing the colour is only one of the many benefits that you will get when choosing quartz for your countertop material. Take a look below to check out the other advantages you will get when you use quartz.
