Pros

  • Durable
  • Low maintenance
  • Less porous
  • Stain resistant
  • Scratch resistant
  • Doesn’t harbor bacteria/viruses
  • Luxurious appearance
  • Multiple color and style options
  • Uniform color
  • Versatile, so edging and other designs easily incorporated

Cons

  • Quartz can be a more expensive option
  • Seams of engineered stone can sometimes be more noticeable
  • Not heat resistant
  • Sensitive to chemicals such as acid-based cleaners and bleach
  • Heavier than natural stone, so needs proper structural support

Because quartz has so many varying grades, it’s a great option for everyone no matter what their budget it. Higher quality quartz is more expensive while lower-grade quartz offers homeowners multiple affordable options. Premium quartz comes in rich colors with minimal veins, while standard-grade quartz has an average quality and color depth. A lower-grade quartz will have numerous veins and sometimes discoloration, but keep in mind once the quartz is crushed with resin, many of those flaws are not visible.

We offer the most popular quartz countertop colors on the market. Because of its versatility and durability, quartz is the perfect option for kitchens, bathrooms, fireplaces, or wet bars.

It’s a low-maintenance surface, so it’s perfect for kitchen countertops, sinks, bathrooms, and fireplaces. Gaumats offers an array of quartz slabs in various colors, styles, and patterns.

Quartz Vanity

Bathrooms are one of the highest traffic areas in a home meaning its more susceptible to bacteria and other germs. Luckily, quartz can stop germs dead in their tracks because they have a hard, non-porous surface. Quartz does not harbor bacteria. Germs are unable to enter the stone and when you clean a quartz vanity, you can be sure that it’s free of bacteria and other germs. Its durable surface is also stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about water or other stains.

Quartz Countertop Maintenance and Cleaning

Quartz is known for being one of the most low-maintenance countertop choices, but to keep your quartz countertop looking pristine, here’s a few things to remember.

Even though it’s considered stain resistant, quartz is still susceptible to some stains from harsh liquids like coffee or wine. Make sure you wipe up these liquids when spilled and don’t allow them to dry, which could potentially stain your counters.

Use an all-purpose cleaner or mild dish soap mixed with water to clean your counters. Avoid highly acidic, high-alkaline cleaners and bleach.

Avoid using any harsh chemicals such as fingernail polish remover or paint remover on or near your counters. If spilled, make sure to clean off immediately to avoid potential damage.

While quartz is resistant to scratches and cracks, it’s still possible to damage them with items such as abrasive sponges or steel pads. When wiping your quartz countertops down, use a soft sponge or towel.

Always use a cutting board.

To remove hardened food or grease, use a plastic putty knife or similar tool to scrape the food off. You can remove grease by using a degreasing cleaner and then wiping it away. Certain types of dish soaps also have degreasers gentle enough to use on quartz countertops.

Do not set hot pots or pans directly on the counter, which can cause discoloration and sometimes cracking. Use trivets and heating pads – or keep them on the stove or other surfaces to be safe.
