Nothing tops the beauty of natural stone – except, perhaps, quartz. Featuring the look and feel of marble, granite, and other stones found in nature, quartz is a product that improves upon nature’s design. Also known as engineered stone, quartz is made from a mixture of durable resin and natural crushed stone to create a non-porous surface that never needs to be sealed in order to be waterproof. Quartz looks so much like natural stone that it’s impossible to tell the difference, but because it’s completely waterproof, it also requires far less maintenance.
Here is a breakdown of our current quartz stone for countertop selection. Look to this section for new additions in the near future:
