Quartz countertops are made from 90-90% quartz and 5-10% resins and binders. They’re amazingly durable, scratch-resistant, and low maintenance, although they’re a bit more expensive than granite.
Quartz is a man-made substance that’s very resistant to stains, cracks, and impact damage, which makes them perfect for everyday kitchen wear and tear. You’re more likely to blunt your knife than to scratch your quartz countertop.
Thanks to liquids not being able to seep into the material, they’re very easy to clean, they’re non-porous, and antimicrobial, making them extremely hygienic.
