When considering different countertop options, homeowners and business owners should have many questions. These questions help people to choose the best quartz countertops near Highlands Ranch to grace their bathrooms and kitchens. When it comes to quartz countertops, homeowners might be confused as to exactly what these stone countertops are made of and how they can be the best choice over other sturdy stone countertops like granite. Continue reading for a look at the most common questions and answers about quartz countertops.

How are quartz countertops made?

Unlike granite and other stone countertop materials, quartz is completely engineered by humans. Quartz countertops are formed by combining ground quartz—which is one of the most abundant minerals found on Earth—with a smaller combination of resins and pigment dyes. These materials are combined to form a hard countertop material that can come in any shape, style, or color a homeowner or business owner may desire.

How are quartz countertops maintained?

Quartz countertops are easily maintained with some light and regular cleaning. They do not need to be resealed or waxed to keep their color and shape, which many stone countertops require. They will also resist staining, chipping, and cracking, unlike other stone materials. To ensure quartz countertops maintain their color, homeowners should simply keep them clean and wipe up stains as they occur. These actions will keep potential damages to a minimum over the course of the countertops’ life.

How many design options does quartz offer?

One of the many reasons homeowners choose quartz for their stone countertops is due to its almost limitless design options. Due to the engineered quality of quartz countertops, they can be made in almost every color imaginable. Homeowners can also request their quartz counters in different appearances closer to that of natural stone. For example, quartz countertops with coarsely ground quartz will look closer to natural stone with various flecks in the surface. If the quartz has been finely ground, then the quartz counter will look smoother and less flawed.
