Common Myths About Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops have been popular for a while now, but there is still a great deal of misinformation and many myths out there about these beautiful countertops. Some common misconceptions include all quartz countertops looking the same, the idea that quartz is easily damaged and the myth that you can only get quartz countertops with one type of edge. Keep reading to learn the truth about quartz countertops.

All Quartz Countertops Look The Same

There is a persistent myth that all quartz countertops look alike. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. These days, you can even get quartz countertops that look like marble or granite. We are proud to offer beautiful quartz countertops with a huge variety of distinctive designs. Quartz is one of the most versatile types of countertops.

Quartz Is Easily Damaged

For some reason, there is a common misconception that quartz is easily damaged or stains. Quartz isn’t quite as tough or as stain-resistant as granite, but it is still quite tough. It takes high temperatures or gouging with a harder mineral to damage a quartz countertop. Quartz may stain over time, as it is slightly porous, but getting your quartz countertop sealed will reduce the chances of this happening.

Quartz Countertops Only Come With One Type Of Edge

Many people who are not familiar with quartz countertops don’t know about the wide variety of edges that you can get. Quartz countertops can be finished with top and bottom and crescent edges, as can all types of countertops. Quartz can also be finished in Ogee and Half Bullnose edges, which are distinctive and beautiful.  Some countertop types cannot be finished with these edges.

Quartz Countertops Don’t Contain Any Natural Stone

One of the most common myths about quartz countertops is that they don’t contain any natural stone. Quartz countertops are manmade in specialized factories. However, natural quartz is used when manufacturing quartz countertops. This natural stone is then combined with manmade resins to enhance the stone’s natural beauty and toughness.
