Are quartz countertops right for me? Quartz is one of the most popular luxury materials in the Dallas area and is a fixture in many homes across DFW.
It used to be that natural stone was the top choice for countertops due to its beauty and abundance of color variations. However, quartz has become a top choice these days for many reasons. First off, quartz is more durable than natural stone due to its composition. Quartz slabs are manufactured from a combination of ground quartz, polyester resins for binding, and various pigments to give it color. The resins are what make quartz so durable and resistant to cracks, water damage and general wear.
Unlike natural stone and granite, quartz countertops are non-porous and do not need to be re-coated to maintain strength and luster. Conversely, you will have to invest in a yearly protective top coat for high-end granite countertops in order to avoid major dulling and water damage. Because the resin in the quartz seals out any water from seeping through, countertops are easily cleaned and antimicrobial. When choosing quartz over natural stone, you can rest assured that you will not have any issues with bacterial growth beneath the surface. This can be a real and dangerous issue with natural stone options. Especially if not properly maintained and cared for.
When quartz countertops first became an option, there were not as many color choices available, making it a second choice to natural stone. However, this is no longer the case at all. Manufacturers have come such a long way with quartz slabs, that they are now nearly indistinguishable from natural stone options. In fact, there are even more options with quartz because bright colored pigments can be added for a more modern look.
