Quartz countertops are growing in popularity among homeowners, especially when it comes to bathroom remodeling projects. Bathroom designers have noticed the recent changes some quartz manufactures have made in offering a wider variety of color options and the creation of collections in quartz countertops. While granite and marble countertops are still popular, quartz countertops offer different features.
Maintenance: Because quartz countertops are a combination of natural quartz fused with resin they have a non-porous surface. This can be quite an asset when considering overall maintenance. Quartz countertops can be cleaned regularly with soap and water, but steer clear of harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaning pads. Using these cleaning products could dull the surface.
Cost: Quartz is initially about the same cost as a natural stone, like granite or marble. But because of the non-porous feature quartz does not require sealing after installation and routine re-sealing. The re-sealing adds to the cost of the initial investment.
Hygienic: Stain and odor causing bacteria, mildew and mold are unable to penetrate the surface of a quartz countertop. Marble and granite countertops have microscopic capillaries where mold, mildew and bacteria can be found if not properly sealed.
