Your countertops go through a lot – scratches, stains and the stresses of everyday life. Unlike granite and marble, quartz doesn’t need periodic sealing, polishing and reconditioning.

Quartz surfaces are over 90% pure quartz. Granite typically contains 40-60% quartz, along with more porous, weaker minerals, making it more susceptible to damage.

Because it’s nonporous and nonabsorbent, quartz won’t draw in moisture from raw or leftover food, which can harbor harmful bacteria. It gives off zero emissions and no radon.

Many quartz surfaces are available in either a honed, polished or embossed finish.Its multihued slabs with random flecks and swirls make it a unique and beautiful addition to any project.

  • Hello,
    My name is Dee Carrier and I live in South Venice. I had a quartz countertop installed last August and the finish on it is cloudy and irregular. I have gotten no where with the company I purchased it from and wondered if you could recommend someone to re-buff the surface so it’s shiny. Any advice/direction would be greatly appreciated. It’s a small job with on 44 square feet of counter.
    Thank you,
