Quartz countertops are very popular for busy homeowners who want to save time in the kitchen with no ongoing maintenance. Also known as engineered stone, quartz slabs combine finely crushed stone (93% quartz), various colors (pigment) and resin to produce a tough, non-porous material that resists heat, staining and scratching. Best of all, quartz slabs never need to be sealed which means no additional maintenance beyond every day cleanup. Quartz slabs come in a variety of colors with a consistently uniform pattern throughout each slab.
The August 2006 issue of Consumer Reports Magazine gave their overall highest score to quartz (engineered stone) based upon multiple criteria including resistance to stains, heat, and scratches. Bridgewater Marble & Granite is proud to offer two leading brands of quartz slabs (engineered stone), which are ideal for residential and commercial countertop applications and competitively priced about the same as a mid-range granite selection.
