Quartz Countertops

Quartz Countertops

A beautiful, cost-effective alternative to natural stones, quartz countertops provide a high-end look in a myriad of colours and textures. Get the look of marble or granite with the dramatic veining variations or a more subtle appearance. Popular brands include Silestone and Caesarstone.


The Material

A man-made hard surface that consists of natural quartz (about 90-95%) mixed with resins and pigments. Able to mimic natural stones, but each slab will look the same. Polished or honed/matte finishes.

Quartz Counter Pros

Just as attractive but more budget-friendly than natural stones; very durable, nonporous and stain-resistant. Easy to maintain. Moisture-repellent—perfect for kitchen, bathroom or laundry areas.

Quartz Counter Cons

Cracking or burning can occur if very hot/freezing item placed directly on surface; can chip if heavy, hard objects are dropped or smashed into it. Needs to be professionally installed.

Installation Tips

Use as kitchen backsplash continuous from counter for seamless, high-end appearance. Large, solid slabs can be installed in bath/shower surrounds for a seamless look without grout to clean.
