What is engineered quartz?
Engineered Quartz (not to be confused with Quartzite, another appealing natural stone used as counters) is a man-made product created mostly from natural materials. It's made of 90 to 94 percent ground quartz and 6 to 10 percent resins and pigments that are combined into durable and nonporous slabs.
What is the difference between granite and quartz countertops?
Quartz slabs are man-made. Granite slabs come from stone blocks extracted from quarries around the world, sliced like bread and polished. Either material are the same working thickness, and are finished using the same stone-cutting & polishing equipment.
Can you put a hot pan on a quartz countertop?
Although quartz is very scratch resistant, we do recommend using a cutting board on your quartz countertop. A hot pot or pan can potentially lead to discoloration, we suggest using a trivet to maintain the quality of your countertop.
