Recent developments in technology and consumer demand have made it possible for many colors to very closely resemble natural stone like marble, while giving consumers the benefit of a more durable countertop. The consistency and beauty of these products have made them the leader in countertop surfaces for the last several years. Quartz handles the impact a high-volume kitchen demands and can do so with little to no maintenance. The colors and patterns available hold up well to changing trends.

Quartz is an extremely durable man-made stone. Quartz’s composition is made up of ~93% quartz, a natural material found in the earth’s crust, and 7% from resins and color. Quartz is extremely hard, resistant to scratching and permanently sealed. Compared to granite it’s less likely to chip and requires even less maintenance.
Our Quartz suppliers are based in Tennessee, Georgia, Canada, Vietnam, Spain and India. We offer the best colors from the top suppliers.
Start with soap and water, or a mild dish detergent, to regularly clean and disinfect your countertop. Do not use harsh chemicals such as bleach or acidic based cleaners. See additional care & maintenance facts in our Countertop Characteristics & Care guide.
