Quartz Countertops Sacramento
When it comes to choosing the best material for your kitchen countertops or bath countertops, you likely have a few requirements. It has to be durable, it has to repel stains, and it has to be easy maintenance. Fortunately, quartz countertops can accommodate all of your needs and it’s easy on your budget too! Here’s why you should consider quartz countertops for your home – and how to make sure you’re choosing the best quartz countertops for your needs:
Get the Exact Look You Want
While other popular countertop materials, like granite and marble, have an unmistakable natural beauty about them, it can be difficult to perfectly match the stone to the décor and profile of your home. With quartz, the design is much more controlled – meaning you can get the exact look, color, texture and pattern that you want. Don’t want to leave the look of your countertops up to chance? Quartz is the style for you.
We carry quartz countertops from a variety of premium manufacturers, including Cambria, Silestone, Caesarstone and Zodiaq. Each one seamlessly blends beauty and technology, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Plus, with quartz, you can get colors that are normally not available with other types of stones or fabricated materials –including fiery reds, earthy greens and dazzling blues.
Each of these brands combines the latest in polymer science to create ever more increasing hardiness and durability while maintaining a charming, modern aesthetic that makes quartz a definite contender when considering materials for your new countertops.
Strong, Hardy Stone-Like Look
If you love the texture of natural stone, you don’t have to give that up when you choose quartz countertops. Quarts combines a granite-like pattern (known as “veining”) and can also contain a lustrous sparkle similar to other materials. Quartz countertops also include binding materials and pigments to help you achieve the perfect color and strength in your countertop – giving it a stone-like hardiness that helps prevent damage from scratches or impacts. Essentially, everything about your quartz countertop has been built from the ground up to ensure maximum durability without affecting price or aesthetic.
Quartz can also be specially engineered to mimic the look and texture of other types of stone like granite or marble – but without the necessary upkeep and cost. If you want a countertop that combines innovative design and technology – it doesn’t get much better than quartz.
Non-Porous Design Won’t Let Stains Sink In
Unlike other materials, quartz does not need to be sealed. It is naturally non-porous, so stains and spills – particularly from items like wine and coffee – won’t leave a permanent mark on your countertops. No countertop material is completely impervious from things like burns and stains, so if you’re worried about keeping your countertops looking their best at all times, you should use cutting boards and trivets.
Easy to Keep Clean and Hygienic
In addition to porous stone that can let stains soak in, these microscopic holes in natural stone can also become a breeding ground for bacteria. Fortunately, quartz is non-porous, so in addition to not letting stains sink in, it’s also very easy to clean and care for. Mild soap and water is all that’s needed for most types of spills. We do not recommend the use of harsh abrasives on quartz, including bleach, products with pumice in them, or harsh/abrasive scrubbing pads as this can dull the luster of the quartz.
Many manufacturers of kitchen cleaning items include “soft” cleansers which won’t harm your countertop surfaces. Check the warning label carefully to determine if the product is safe to use on quartz.
As you can see, there are many reasons to want to consider quartz as the material of choice for your new kitchen or bath countertop. Whether you’re having a home built and need to choose lasting countertops that are both durable and attractive, or you’re looking to re-do your countertops and want something more modern for your kitchen or bath, you can trust in the versatility of quartz.
