Here’s What You Need To Know About Quartz Countertops

A quartz countertop is an elegant and durable solution for a kitchen or bathroom surface. This beautiful surface is crafted from quartz, resin, and pigments, and it is cast using a liquid casting process. In the manufacturing process, the liquid material is poured into the molds until the hardening process is completed. When the molds are removed, the quartz reverts back to its original shape after removal, resulting in a beautiful and unique finish. Canadian Countertops is a premier quartz, granite, and marble fabrication and installation company in British Columbia and Manitoba. With the ability, reputation, and skill to cover all of our clients’ unique requirements, Canadian Countertops can handle single family residential and multi-unit developments, restaurants, entertainment venues, and international hotels.

Can Quartz Be Customized?

Quartz countertops come in a wide range of colors and patterns, from classic neutrals to bold, statement-making hues. They can be customized to mimic the look of natural stone, such as marble or granite, without the maintenance requirements and potential for damage that come with those materials. Quartz offers a vast selection of colors, providing an endless array of customization options. Additionally, its remarkable durability sets it apart from other materials like  wood or stone as it is resistant to scratching and chipping.

Here at Canadian Countertops, we offer custom quartz bathroom countertops and custom quartz kitchen countertops installation. Our team of experts will assist you in creating the perfect look and feel for your home. 

Benefits of Quartz Countertops

The durability and low maintenance of quartz countertops make them an excellent choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops. Quartz does not crack, scratch or chip easily, making it a good choice for high traffic areas. It is engineered to be stronger than natural stones, so it can withstand household wear and tear. Quartz surfaces are also highly resistant to heat, so they are suitable for environments with high temperatures. Quartz is also non porous, meaning it does not absorb liquids or bacteria. This makes spills that could stain or damage the stone easy to clean and maintain. The rise in popularity of quartz and the attractiveness of the countertops also makes it a good selling point for homes on the market, making it a great investment when considering your home’s resale value.

How Much Should I Budget For Quartz Countertops?

It is always important to research all your options before investing in a major home renovation or purchase so that you can make an informed decision that will fit your budget and needs.

Standard Quartz Countertops: $50 – $110 per square foot

High-End Quartz Countertops: $200+ per square foot

It’s worth noting that prices for quartz countertops may vary based on location, quantity, and quality.
