How Quartz Countertops Are Made

It can seem a bit overwhelming at first trying to figure out what type of material is going to work best for your kitchen. That is, until you start looking into quartz countertops in Pittsburgh, PA. Also known as engineered stone countertops, these counters are some of the most impressive options available to homeowners looking to upgrade their space. A lot of the additional benefits that make quartz stand out from the rest come from how it is made.

Extremely hard and durable, this non-porous surface is formed by combining 90% ground quartz with about 10% polymers, resins, and pigments. This creates a granite-like surface that is non-porous, stain-and-crack resistant, and does not require any sealing or resealing throughout its lifespan.

Looking for more variations of color and design? Quartz can deliver that to you. When the quartz is ground coarsely, it produces a flecked appearance, while finely ground quartz gives you a much smoother look. Since pigments and resins are added independently during the production process, these countertops come in a wide range of colors that make it very easy for you to find something that fits your preexisting kitchen or bathroom design.
