Quartz is economical…
Quartz countertops require a substantial investment, but it’s an investment that pays off. When compared with materials that require significant maintenance or that need to be replaced after a few years, natural stone countertops are a major money saver.

Quartz is durable…
Quartz is stress-resistant, which has given the material a great reputation among builders. Quartz countertops can bear heavy loads and are far less likely to fracture or chip than other materials.

Quartz surface is stain and scratch resistant…
The high ratio of quartz powder with a low percentage of resin endows this engineered stone with a high density in its microstructure, giving Quartz countertops a surface that is remarkably resistant to scratched and staining.
