Color choices with engineered quartz surfaces are endless. The most unatural colors can be found with engineered quartz counters. You can get uniform colors with engineered quartz counters.

Low to no maintenance is probably quartz counters most attractive feature. Unlike granite you don't have to seal it. Sealing granite is not a problem but most people including myself never remember to do such a mundane task every twelve months or so.
