Have You Considered The Benefits Of White Quartz Countertops?

If you like the look of natural stone but are a bit leery of the concerns with staining and the need for that little bit of extra care required, you may want to consider the benefits of quartz.

Many homeowners in Maple Grove, MN have already discovered this alternative to marble or granite. Unlike granite or marble, white quartz countertops as well as all other colors, are completely stain resistant, maintenance free and offer some great benefits while still providing a unique stone surface look.

What are Quartz Countertops?

Quartz itself is a naturally occurring mineral that is actually the second most common mineral on the earth. It is found in many different places on earth including the United States, Brazil, Europe and the Middle East to name just a few. There are many different types of quartz minerals ranging in color from clear or colorless through to purple, green, black and yellow.

Quartz can be carved or shaped and may be found in jewelry in the form of amethyst, onyx, Tiger’s eye and citrine among others. It can also be used to form countertops when it is ground and then mixed with a specific resin. Colors can be added and patterns can be created within the slab, which is then heated and exposed to pressure to create a perfectly flat piece.

The Advantages

Once polished, white quartz countertops can have the same shine and luster as marble and granite. However, with the addition of the resin and the use of heat and pressure, there are no surface imperfections as found in natural stone. Additionally, the surface is not porous, which means liquids or other substances cannot settle into the countertop, creating a stain free surface area.

Without the porous nature of natural stones such as marble, travertine or granite, white quartz countertops are also naturally mold and mildew resistant as well as being antimicrobial. They are easy to clean with just soap and water, create a wonderful white countertop that is extremely low maintenance.

In a huge array of white colors from pure white to whites that look like marble and granite, you can find the perfect match. Of course, if you want to add color you can as well, including colors found in natural stone as well as custom colors that are both dazzling as well as eye catching.
