Pros & Cons of quartz Countertops
Quartz is actually a synthetic type of material made from an amalgamation of stone chips. It’s mixed with resins and a variety of pigments to make beautiful slabs to be turned into countertops. Like other hard surface countertop materials, quartz is non-porous so it resists staining. It stands up to juice, oil, wine, tomato, coffee and other sources of stains in the kitchen. For cleanliness, a non-porous surface means that it will not harbor bacteria or viruses. Quartz is actually harder than granite and thus, more durable. In fact, quartz is nearly indestructible but be careful with cooking pans though: Quartz can be damaged by excessive heat, so use heating pads at all times.
