Home I Products I Quartz



Unlike our other products, quartz isn't a natural stone! It is a man-made stone using a mixture of natural quartz, resin, and pigments. This is exactly why it is one of the most durable options on the market, in addition to being stain-resistant, not requiring sealants, and being available in a wide variety of colors.

This stone is as strong as granite and flexible enough to prevent chipping or cracking.

10 benefits of a quartz kitchen countertop


It is more uniform

As a manufactured stone, it is possible to achieve a perfectly uniform appearance. So, if your desire is to have countertops without color or tone variations, this is a great advantage of quartz.


Repairs are easier

Because of the uniformity, repairs are much easier. While it is incredibly unlikely that a quartz countertop will chip, if it does, replacing a broken part is simple.


There is a wide variety of colors

You can find quartz countertops in just about any color you like. So no matter what color combinations your cabinets or walls are, you'll be able to find a quartz countertop that will match your aesthetic amazingly.


It is eco-friendly

Natural stones are extracted from the ground and usually transported over long distances, and therefore they are quite aggressive to the environment. Quartz, on the other hand, can be created from local and recycled minerals, so it's more eco-friendly.


Less maintenance required

Natural stones usually need to be sealed annually, and your countertops need some care to prevent stains and promote longevity. Quartz, on the other hand, does not need to be sealed and requires no special care.


It is more durable

Although both materials are durable, quartz is harder than granite and is nearly indestructible.


Can imitate any material

As already mentioned, quartz comes in a wide variety of colors, and this means that it can also look similar to other stones. So if you like the look of granite or marble, but prefer the advantages of quartz, you can get both using quartz!


It is antibacterial

As quartz is non-porous, it is considered resistant to bacteria. And because of the non-porous nature of quartz, it is an ideal countertop choice for the kitchen and bathroom.


The price is similar

Despite all the advantages listed here, the price of quartz is similar to other stones, such as granite, for example.


Quartz tends to have a longer guarantee

Because of their durability, companies typically offer an excellent warranty on their quartz countertops. The odds of you ever needing to use it are incredibly low, but you'll have it if you need to!
