Why Choose Quartz Slab Countertops?Exceptional durability, impressive visuals and easy maintenance make quartz slab countertops one of the most popular slab options. Quartz slab countertops are comprised mainly of quartz, one of the hardest minerals known to humans, making them more durable than natural stone. Solid color quartz countertops are consistent throughout the slab, while variegated quartz countertops can offer veining and variation more akin to natural stone. Quartz slabs are available in polished, honed or textured finishes.
Benefits of Quartz Slab Countertops
- Stain resistant
- Crack resistant
- Scratch resistant, although we still recommend using a cutting board to protect your counter and utensils
- Resistance to most household chemicals, acids and solvents
- Easy maintenance
- Color consistency depending on the brand and visual
- No sealing required
While quartz slabs have many exceptional qualities, be aware that both sustained heating and sudden temperature changes can cause cracking, especially near edges and cutouts. You must use trivets or hot pads to mitigate thermal transfer from hot pots and pans as well as heat-producing appliances such as crock pots, hot pots, etc. Honed and textured quartz surfaces will show handprints more readily and require more maintenance than polished finishes.
