Arguably one of the most durable choices for a countertop, quartz is a luxurious way to improve your home and make it unique. Due to its manufacturing process, quartz slabs come in a wide variety of colors and designs. Quartz countertops have the same durability as granite. Quartz is a non-porous material, making it a great option for any type of surface that might come in contact with staining liquids such as wine, coffee, or juice. Because it is non-porous, quartz does not harbor bacteria or viruses. This makes it a great option for your kitchen or bathroom.
