Quartz countertops and durability

Quartz countertops have a few different benefits to offer the home owner. One of their main benefits is their durability. Like any good company, the manufacturers stand by their products by offering a warranty of some kind. The folks at A&S Granite and Marble believe that their quartz materials will stand up to the elements, people, and time. You can read about the durability of our quartz countertops below and check out some warranty information.


Among the main reasons people purchase quartz countertops is since they are extremely resilient. Homeowners find quartz to be a product that won’t break, scratch, or get delivered quickly, quartz is the method to go.

When the Italian company Breton invented the process of creating crafted quartz stone in 1963, their objective was to benefit from the natural abundance of quartz to develop a material more durable than stone. In addition, they could use a limitless variety of designs by adding pigments and other products throughout the production procedure. Fortunately, Breton’s vision pertained to fulfillment. Today quartz countertops are one of the most resilient surface areas you can have in your house.

On Mohs scale of mineral hardness, which geologists usage to determine the firmness and scratch resistance of minerals from 1 to 10 (10 being the hardest/most scratch resistant). Quartz is rated 7 out of 10. For contrast, diamond is rated 10 and marble is generally between 3 and 5.

Just because quartz is durable does not imply it’s indestructible. It’s possible to scratch or chip quartz however, due to its difficult structure. People can damage quartz countertops from typical, everyday use, but this is rare.


Makers are so positive in the toughness of quartz counter tops that the majority of use generous guarantees. We list the the service warranty terms offered by the top quartz countertop manufacturers.

Cambria uses a Restricted Lifetime Warranty that applies only to the original owner. It does use if you buy a house with Cambria quartz currently set up. It covers production problems but doesn’t cover damage resulting from abuse, mishandling, chemical exposure, direct or continual heat or cold, outdoor setup, or excessive pressure.

Caesarstone offers a Residential Lifetime Warranty that covers the original owner. However, unlike Cambria’s warranty, it can be transferred to a new owner.
