Quartz has many outstanding attributes that make it a great choice for your countertops. At Avalon, we strive to bring you the best product choices, and quartz countertops are one of those. Here are 4 top reasons to love your quartz!
Quartz countertops are an attractive and rich looking product available in a wide variety of colors and mixes, from more traditional to ultra modern. Because quartz countertops are a manufactured product, quality and regularity in color is easy to achieve.
Quartz countertops are very durable – as much as granite – but are less likely to chip or scratch. This is because quartz countertops are a man made engineered stone product. The mined quartz, which is one of the hardest minerals in the world, is mixed with 7% resin and colorants, and then fused at a very high temperature. The end result is a very hard and reliable surface.
Quartz countertops are non-porous; they do not have to be sealed like granite and are stain resistant. You can entertain with ease, and when your tipsy friend spills a glass of red wine, it won’t leave a mark. The non-porous surface also makes the product highly sanitary, as quartz countertops do not harbour bacteria or viruses.
It’s green too! Mining the quartz mineral is said to have only a light to moderate impact and it is the 2nd most abundant material in the earth’s crust. Quartz countertops are also a low emission product.
Beautiful, durable and functional, there are so many reasons to choose quartz countertops. Avalon is pleased to offer quartz countertop options in a wide variety of colors. Your beautiful and stylish home is our passion. Each day we want you to love coming home to your Avalon home.
