Quartz: Let go of the Granite obsession already!

May 4, 2015

In the recent years, the natural stone industry is now noticing a growing trend among customers. Just as granite swept home remodels and renovations in the early 2000s, quartz products are taking the spotlight in the newest homes. 

 

The appearence, strength and color consistency have increased the demand for this engineered stone. Brands such as Dupont Zodiaq are manufactured to be hygenic and when properly cleaned they will not support the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria. 

 

Granite, Marble and other natural stones have pores and tiny capillaries within the minerals. This can result in staining shown in the picture to the left of the granite and marble samples.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quartz on the other hand is a nonporous surface so spilled beverages such as coffee or wine will not stain the surface. Also very appealing to home owners doing kitchen rennovations.  The strides manufactures such as Dupont have made in the colors their Quartz is offered in has definitely attributed to the popularity increase with consumers as well.

 

 The bottom line is Quartz is simply hard to beat. Drop us an email stacy@countertopsbystarian.com if you have any comments or questions.
