Quartz materials are man-made engineered stone product formed by combining 90% to 95% ground quartz (a natural hard mineral) with 5-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. This forms a very hard granite-like surface that is non-porous. As quartz is made up of mostly natural material, you may experience the same imperfections as natural stone; however, imperfections are much less common and you will have a more consistent finish than natural stone. Quartz is more stain resistant than natural stone; however, it is not as scratch or heat resistant as granite.
Quartz is created in “dye lots” similar to tile. This means there can be variation from one slab to the next and/or variation from a sample to a slab(s).
You are always welcome to view your actual quartz slabs before fabrication.
Below are a few of the quartz manufactures we work with on a regular basis. Feel free to visit their sites for a full list of color options.
