Remodeling Your Kitchen or Bath? Consider Installing Quartz Countertops

Remember the days when everyone had Formica kitchen counters? After the Formica craze, Granite became the coveted countertop, but these days Quartz is quickly becoming the most popular option for kitchen counters.

While Granite countertops are natural stone cut into individual slabs, Quartz countertops are made of crushed quartz mixed with resin in a ratio of 93% quartz to 7% resin. This design and manufacturing process means Quartz countertops are just as strong as Granite but come in a vast array of colors and patterns. They are also more flexible and thus, easier to install.

This flexibility means that Quartz can be used on larger vertical surfaces like backsplashes and even shower enclosures without the all-too-visible seams of natural stone. Whether you choose Granite or Quartz, they will both add beauty and style to your kitchen.

Hudson Home Improvement remodeled the kitchen featured here using Quartz countertops. Granite didn’t offer the wide array of colors and designs that Quartz did, so the client chose a beautiful light colored counter to go along with their white cabinets, and beautiful tiled backsplash.

Maintaining Your Countertop

After a kitchen remodel, a client’s first concern is maintaining their new countertop. Hudson Home Improvement gives their clients a Care Maintenance Manual to help them care for their entire kitchen.

Solid surface countertops need different types of maintenance depending on whether they are Quartz or Granite

Because Quartz is non-porous, it never has to be resealed like Granite does and is durable and scratch resistant. To clean, simply wash with a soft cotton cloth and warm water, using only mild soap if desired.

Granite needs to be sealed every one to two years to keep it from getting cloudy or stained. To clean Granite counters, use just a few drops of neutral cleaner, stone soap (available at any granite tile supply shop) or a mild liquid dish-washing detergent and warm water. Be sure to use a clean rag and not too much soap to avoid streaking.

By exercising standard care, your finish will look fabulous throughout your countertop’s lifetime.
