What is Quartz?
Created using 93-95% crushed quartz with the remaining 5-7% being natural pigments and resin binders, quartz countertops offer a solution to your project that provides the look and feel of granite without the regular maintenance. Depending on the manufacturing of the quartz, the material might have a glassy or metallic flecked appearance if produced using coarsely ground quartz, while a smoother appearance will emerge when the quartz is finely ground.
The colors and patterns are uniform throughout the slabs and remain intact for many years. Quartz countertops can sometimes display seams, so you’ll want to work with Tower Industries to get the right slab for your project. Something to consider is that the material can lose color if exposed to sunlight for an extended amount of time so installing quartz countertops indoors is the recommended option.
Exceeded in toughness and durability only by diamond, sapphire, and topaz, natural quartz won’t scratch and is highly durable. An amazingly positive feature of quartz surfacing is that the material is highly durable. Virtually indestructible, quartz countertops resist stains from cooking and cleaning products and stands strong against scratches and cracks. Quartz surfacing is so resilient it is considered even more durable and longer lasting than granite.
Quartz surfacing can be utilized and installed in larger slabs, allowing expanded applications beyond countertops, such as backsplashes and shower enclosures. Additionally, because quartz countertops are manufactured, custom countertops and other customizable solutions are always available.
