Countertops can be one of the most important
facets of your home—in terms of both appearance and usability. Whether they are
being installed in your bathrooms, your kitchen or otherwise, their ability to
withstand regular wear and tear will add to the value of your property and
leave a good impression on your guests.
That being said, selecting the right material to
construct your countertops is critical to their longevity. And, as tests by
Breton Spa in Italy have proven, Caesarstone’s man-made quartz surfaces perform
outstandingly next to other countertop materials in several departments – its
engineering process combining ground quartz (one of earth’s most abundant
minerals,) resins, polymers and pigments to produce a stone that is essentially
a composite of many of the best qualities of each countertop material.
1. Scratch Resistant
Compared to granite, laminate and solid
surfaces, Caesarstone’s quartz countertops are extremely durable and more
resistant to scratches and dents—meaning it will be less likely to chip if
items are accidentally dropped on, and its appearance will maintain its
characteristic brilliance. In fact, quartz is nearly indestructible.
2. Low Maintenance
Caesarstone’s quartz surfaces do not require
much upkeep; because of their manufacturing process (having been engineered to
perfection in a factory,) quartz countertops are very easy to clean
& preserve – requiring only water, soap and a soft washcloth for cleanup.
They also resist stains or corrosion from cooking oils, cleaning products and
liquid.
3. Mold + Mildew Resistant
Similarly, the nonporous construction of
Caesarstone’s quartz countertops leaves no room whatsoever for mold or mildew
to form—a common pain for many homeowners in several aspects of their house.
Moreover, they do not require to be sealed or resealed.
4. Flexural Strength
Similar to its scratch resistance, quartz
countertops’ possess far more flexural strength and are impressively durable
next to other materials—especially when compared to granite, likely its closest
competitor—accounting for their recent popularity. In addition, you can
customize the edges of the countertop to your liking.
5. Color Consistency
Caesarstone’s quartz surfaces are among the most
visually dazzling available on the market, showcasing outstanding definition
and—also thanks to their engineering process—an almost endless variety of
colors available to choose from. And, as the material has been perfected,
manufacturers can now emulate the patterns, swirls and subtleties of other
stone materials, making quartz nearly indistinguishable from the real thing.
6. Immunity to Freeze
Quartz, like granite, is immune to freezing and
thawing—withstanding dropping temperatures to ensure countertops uphold their
appearance in winter months.
