Quartz countertops putting a new spin on Home Improvement

Quartz countertops have slowly and steadily become popular for home owners wanting to switch things up. The home improvement game has a lot of different choices now when it comes to your kitchen or bathroom countertop. A&S Granite and Marble has created some beautiful quartz countertop solutions installed by some of the most skilled workers in the business.

Since 2004, US sales of quartz countertops have increased by 60 percent – HGTV

How is Quartz Engineered?

Quartz countertops are man-made crafted rock countertops created by integrating 90% ground quartz. Quartz is a natural hard mineral with 8-10% resins, polymers, as well as pigments. This creates an extremely durable granite-like surface area. The appearance relies on how the quartz is ground: coarsely ground quartz creates a flecked look, while carefully ground quartz creates a smooth look.

Some of our suppliers are: Cambria (made in the USA), Caesarstone, Silestone, and Corian Quartz. They give our customers a wide range of textures and colors to choose for their countertop.

The History of the Quartz Countertop

Quartz countertops quickly came to be preferred in Italy. They have also have been featured in European cooking areas for decades. It took longer for the trend to catch on in the USA. This might be explained in numerous ways: trends and also styles that come from abroad often require time to flow to the United States. More probable is that American home owners were happy with our existing choices at the time. Laminate was the primary surface area in the 60s as well as 70s. They also were not inclined to use a material that only looked like natural stone options like granite, marble and limestone. (Quartz countertops can be produced to look noticeably like all 3 of these all-natural rocks.).
