Creating the Ultimate Blend of Elegance and Functionality


This is a relatively new countertop material. Quartz countertops are offered in two different versions, natural and engineered. Natural quartz countertops are made from large quartz slabs and fabricated in the same way granite is. Engineered quartz countertops are made from 95% natural crushed quartz and 5% polymer resins. Engineered quartz countertops retain much of the toughness of quartz but display increased ductility due to the resin, improving impact resistance. Countertops are more scratch resistant as well as less porous than natural quartz surfaces. Many different colors and patterns are available in the market. Engineered stone is sold under brand names as Zodiaq, Silestone, Radianz. Because these stones do not contain fissures or veins, the strength of a slab may be more consistent throughout than that of a natural stone. That consistency also makes seams easy to match.

Both types of quartz countertops are very durable. Engineered quartz has shown to be more resitant to straching.


Quartz countertop prices vary depending on quality and detail work. Expect to pay between $70 and $150 per square foot.


Natural quartz is slightly porous and will require sealing like granite. Engineered quartz counters do not require annual sealing.


Generally speaking natural quartz is not the greenest material on the market today. Some manufacturers do offer green quartz counters that make use of recycled content.
