   Also, known as engineered stone quartz counter tops are still fairly new to the marketplace. Quartz is attractive in appearance, durable, and has fewer weaknesses than natural stone. This product goes through a manufacturing process that allows a wide array of colors and textures that you will not see in natural stone. Quartz counter tops have a richness, and depth of color that can not be duplicated in other solid surface counter tops like Corian.

     Quartz (engineered stone) is non-porous which makes it resistant to stains better than granite, marble, slate. Due to being non- porous it does not harbor bacteria or viruses making it a great choice for the kitchen, or bathroom counter tops.

  Cons- Fortunately, quartz counter tops have very few but the first would be price averaging 150-200 sqft installed on up. Solid surface counter tops are similar in cost to exotic granite. Keep in mind, however, that is only an average bids are free, and you should always get a bid on your job.

      Next, would be the size of the slabs, quartz slabs come in standard, specific sizes that you will not see in granite... Heat resistance would be the third con of quartz counter tops. When handling hot pan, and you have quartz counter tops trivets are a must. Trivets protect the existing quartz counter and let heat circulate to prevent possible heat fractures on your solid surface counter top.

       When designing a new kitchen and/ or master bathroom quartz counter tops will give you a contemporary, upscale design with very low maintenance. As long as you are willing to live with the drawbacks of definitely seeing the seam, cost, and the need to always use a trivet, quartz counter tops will meet and exceed your expectations. Always read the specific manufacturers warranty, and maintenance instructions before picking a counter top.
