What are the benefits of quartz worktops?

Updated: Apr 16, 2021

Quartz worktops – the benefits

Quartz solid surfaces are made up of 94% natural quartz. Quartz is one of the earth’s hardest materials, making quartz surfaces extraordinarily resilient. Quartz worktops come in numerous designs from marbled and concrete effects through to metallic designs that give a beautifully unique finish.

As solid surface installers for housebuilders, we work with quartz because of its resilience in kitchens and bathrooms. The material creates stunning worktops using minimal joints. Manufacturers of quartz provide up to 25 years warranty.

Working with quartz, we see the results for housebuilders, kitchen retailers, and their customers. Here are the main benefits:

1. Longevity

The natural strength of quartz combined with expert fabrication means a quartz worktop lasts decades. Minimal joints and a non-porous composition give it the resilience to stand up to heavy daily use whilst being one of the most hygienic surfaces available. Any homebuilder offering quartz surfaces is assured of the quality and knows the customer will enjoy their ideal kitchen for many years to come.

2. Stain and scratch resistance

When designing your dream kitchen as part of your new home, you don’t want the initial impact to wear thin. Quartz worktops are favoured due to their non-porous structure and resistance to stains, scratches, chemicals, and wear and tear. Customers get practical, beautiful surfaces that retain their appeal over many years.

3. Beautiful finish

Quartz worktops retain the resilience of natural quartz with added elegance. The smooth and polished surfaces create a stylish finish that ties any kitchen design together. When a homeowner pictures their new kitchen, the surfaces are the foreground of this daydream – the icing on the cake. Quartz surfaces have been engineered for beauty.

4. Colours for every design

Design trends, practicality, and preference influence home décor choices. Surfaces are customised with hues, styles, textures, and colours, and customers can tailor their surface to their exact vision. Within this, there will always be best sellers and firm favourites that home builders and kitchen designers can suggest.

5. Easy to maintain

Nobody wants a beautiful surface that’s a nightmare to keep clean. Of the stone surfaces out there, including granite and marble, quartz is the easiest to maintain. Because of its natural resilience and non-porous structure, it stands up to regular use and cleaning. It doesn’t need to be treated to preserve the smooth surface appearance.
