The benefits of quartz for your kitchen countertops
- Strong and durable
Quartz is stronger than natural stone and has a higher tensile strength than granite. It is less likely to chip, scratch, or stain, so you can live a more stress-free life with your everyday use in the kitchen.
- Hygienic and stain resistant
It is non-porous, so it resists staining more than granite, marble and concrete when it is properly sealed. It stands up to juice, red wine, tomato, tea, coffee and other sources of food and drink stains in the kitchen. Because it is non-porous, it does not hold moisture which can harbor harmful bacteria. It is often used in the hospitality, restaurant, and foodservice industry, as well as in medical facilities and schools, where hygiene is essential. Quartz is also nonabsorbent, so it does not retain any odors from food and drinks.
- Easy to maintain
Quartz is easy to maintain. You can clean it with mild soap and warm water.
The benefits of granite for your kitchen countertops
- Heat tolerant
Granite holds up to heat. This feature makes it ideal for kitchen surfaces to give you freedom while you cook.
The surface is porous and smooth, likely to resist staining, and it will not absorb liquids when properly sealed. It is easy to clean with a high-quality cleaner formulated for granite.
- Luxury appearance with functionality
It is mined from the earth so the various minerals within the granite add depth and character making each granite countertop unique. Granite comes in breathtaking colors that will not fade with time.
