Over the past decade, manufactured quartz countertops having increasingly gained in popularity in both commercial and residential applications. This is primarily due to the wide variety available and how easy quartz countertops are to maintain compared to their natural stone counterparts. Quartz slabs are manufactured through a process that combines natural quartz ground to the consistency of sand and bound with a small amount of polymer to create a solid surface. Because the quartz slabs are manufactured, they are non-porous and thus less likely to harbor bacteria or mildew, making them ideal for kitchen and bathroom applications. Quartz slabs do not need to be sealed and are stain and scratch resistant. This makes quartz particularly appealing to the homeowner who is looking for both practicality and design.
