Quartz countertops are twice as strong as granite. Quartz surfaces resist stains from wine, tea and other common food items. No sealing or polishing is ever needed.
Unlike granite, Quartz surfaces have been certified by NSF International as safe for use as a food preparation surface. Quartz is nonporous; therefore, food and moisture cannot penetrate the surface which is the main source of growth for harmful bacteria.
Quartz countertops are manufactured from pure natural quartz. In fact, quartz is the hardest non-precious stone that can be found in the earth surface. Since Quartz countertops are manufactured, they are far more consistent in pattern than granite.
