About Quartz

Quartz countertops are rapidly becoming one of America’s favorite kitchen countertop surfaces. They are sustainable, ultra-durable, sanitary, and come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Many people appreciate their ability to mimic granite and other natural stone products.

However, many patterns include fun and playful colors, as the result of post-consumer product recycling, that would never be possible with granite or marble slabs. Some Quartz products are even made right here in the United States, making them an even more eco-friendly option. If you’re in the market for a countertop surface that is luxurious, environmentally friendly, and can handle the wear-and-tear of a high volume kitchen with little to no maintenance, Kitchen Magic would like to educate you regarding all things quartz.

5 Quick Facts about Quartz Countertops

  1. The "Greenest" Natural Stone Product. Quartz countertops are more eco-friendly than other natural stone surfaces because they are 93% quartz stone. Quartz is one of the most prolific minerals on the planet. Quartz countertops qualify towards LEED certification points.
  2. Unrivaled Durability. Quartz is the 4th hardest mineral on the planet, preceded by Topaz, Corundum, and Diamonds. Your quartz countertops won't chip, crack, or stain.
  3. Sanitary. Because they are non-porous, quartz countertops aren't susceptible to the grime and bacteria build-up that is typical of other natural stone surfaces. They never need to be sealed and do not require the use of special cleaning products.
  4. Great Warranties. Our quartz countertops come with 10-, 15-, and lifetime-warranties, depending on the manufacturer.
  5. GREENGUARD Approved. GREENGUARD backs quartz countertops because of their no-VOC composition, which complies with GREENGUARD's high indoor air quality standards.
