Tampa Quartz Countertops

Quartz Countertop Brands

You may have heard of quartz countertops also referred to as "engineered stone". That's because quartz counters are a manufactured product. Some of the hardest minerals found on earth our ground up and mixed with pigments and resins to produce an incredibly dense and sturdy counter top surface.

In the past quartz countertops were only available in consistent colors with very little depth and no patterns. This is no longer the case. Modern day quartz countertops are found in an array of colors and patterns that can mimic the look and feel of natural stone counter tops.

Quartz Countertops: Pros & Cons

PROS: The incredible density and manufacturing process used to create quartz countertops makes them anti-microbial by nature. There just aren't the pores like those found in natural stone where moisture and bacteria can take hold. Quartz countertops are also low maintenance and do not require the periodic application of sealers like marble and granite countertops.

CONS: While most quartz countertops are heat resistant up to around 400° it's best not to place pots and pans directly on these types of counter tops. Also, quartz countertops cannot be installed outdoors. Direct sunlight and extreme outdoor temperatures cause quartz countertops to degrade and fade over time.
