• What is quartz?
  • A silicon dioxide mineral that occurs in colorless and transparent or colored hexagonal crystals or in crystalline masses. Quartz is one of the hardest minerals of abundance in stones such as sandstone, granite, and quartzite.
  • How is it best used?
  • Final design should always be based on specific values for the stone variety ultimately to be installed. These values may be obtained from the Stone Supplier. All materials are not suitable for all uses. In order to avoid mistaken selections, tests for material values should be made prior to final material selection.
  • What is the general price range?
  • $55-$99 sq. ft. (price per sq. ft. installed for in stock materials)
  • Porosity and sealing
  • Quartz is non-porous allowing it to resist staining much better than natural stone. Its non-porous surface means it will not harbor bacteria or viruses, making it the cleanliest of America’s most popular countertop surfaces. Quartz countertops never need to be sealed making them virtually maintenance free.
