Why You'll Love Quartz

Engineered quartz countertops are some of the very best countertop materials that you can choose to have installed in your kitchen. No other countertop option can match the durability as well as ease of maintainence that quartz can offer you.

Of the most fun features of engineered quartz countertops is that you can put hot pots and pans right on the countertops. They can come right out of the oven or off and the stove and go right on top of your countertop. Use of a trivet is recommended by the manufacturers but it's very rare that an engineered countertop gets scalded or melted by extreme heat.

Do you hate having to drag out a cutting board to chop up some spices or slice up some meat. Me too! You don't have to any more. You can cut, chop, slice, and dice right on top of engineered quartz counterops. Your knives will dull before you wear out the surface of your counter.

Quartz countertops also do an excellent job of inhibiting bacteria growth. They keep bacteria at bay by not giving it a place to hide out and flourish in. Since bacteria and viruses have virtually no place to hide on top of an engineered counterop they can easily be wiped away with common household cleaners and paper towels.

And don't forget the ease of maintainence. Regular cleaning is all that you need to do for engineered quartz countertops. No special sealers, polishes, or laquers like with other countertop competitors. The less time I have to spend cleaning the easier it is to make me happy. I have better things to do than buff a countertop for a couple hours on my day off from work.
