Quartz countertops are an increasingly popular choice for homeowners who are looking for a durable and attractive surface. Quartz countertops are man-made engineered stone and come in a wide range of colours and patterns, making it a popular choice for kitchen countertops, bathroom countertops, as well as fireplace surrounds and tub surrounds. One of the benefits of quartz countertops is that they are non-porous, which means that they are highly resistant to bacteria and other microorganisms, making them a hygienic choice for all kitchen and bathroom countertop surfaces.
Quartz is extremely hard and durable, making it easy to clean, resistant to cracking, chipping, resistant to staining and chipping. Additionally, because quartz is man-made, it offers more flexibility in terms of colour and pattern than natural stone options like granite or marble. If you are looking for a durable, stylish and natural stone countertop material that is resistant to sudden change of temperature then quartz countertops are an excellent option to consider. Anything from bathroom cabinets to kitchen renovations, custom quartz is capable of creating state of the art pieces for your custom quartz projects.
Quartz countertops are a great way to add an elegant touch of luxury to a room. Whether it’s in your kitchen or bathroom, these beautiful surfaces will make you feel like royalty with their expensive look and high-quality material.

Quartz tops are man-made engineered stone formed using 90% ground quartz (depending on the manufacturer) with 8%-10% resins, polymers and pigments.
This forms a very consistent product in which the appearance, texture and “sparkle” can be controlled to create uniform slabs ideal for large jobs or consistency in appearance.
Because of the manufacturing process, quartz comes in a very large array of colours and patterns including fire engine red, green and black. Alternatively, you can find quartz in very natural tones with sparkles and veining to mimic the look of natural granite or marble.
Quartz is arguably the most durable choice for your design. It is extremely hard, durable and water-resistant. This means you can avoid cracking and staining which you can get with other materials like marble or granite.
Along with its durability, because quartz is man-made it will allow you the most flexibility to find a colour or pattern which will work with your design.
One thing to note about quartz is that it can be expensive for complex designs and it is not heat tolerant. If you are using quartz in your kitchen you will want to ensure you are not placing hot pots or items directly on your quartz surface to avoid unwanted marks or blemishes.
