If you’re considering quartz countertops on Greasby, you’re in good company. An increasing number of home owners are selecting quartz over granite. First, you should know that not all quartz countertops are made of 100% stone. Many options have 95% quartz and 5% resins that are manufactured using polymers. That’s not something you have to worry about with David Williams. Our original quartz is carved out of natural stone, harvested from local quarries using techniques and materials that are environmentally safe. Resins may be added later, but as for the quartz itself, our quality is guaranteed from source.
Now, let’s talk about the reasons you would pick quartz instead of granite. In Greasby, quartz countertops are stronger than granite. Turns out that 5 to 7% of resin makes quartz tougher than raw natural stone, so in this case, the impurity is definitely an advantage. The resin has other advantages too. It makes quartz less porous, which means foods and liquids are a lot less likely to seep into it can cause unsightly stains. This is especially useful in a kitchen counter, which is a magnet for spilled food and beverages. The resin also makes quartz resistant to scratches, so it will keep its shiny new appearance much longer. Quartz is quite easy to clean. A quick wash with soap and water will get rid of all dirt and food-related debris.
Many people prefer quartz countertops in Greasby because they say infections are reduced when you use them. Is this possible? Yes! We said earlier that quartz isn’t porous. This means bacteria and viruses can’t survive for prolonged periods since there are no pores where they can hide and grow. Quartz is available in a wide range of colours, and it is easier to form and shape because it doesn’t have a characteristic grain. Granite and marble sometimes present a challenge because they have naturally occurring stone patterns that have to be worked around. Now that you’ve made the decision to veer towards granite, you should give us a call. We supply high quality quartz and will be happy to discuss the options with you.
