Quartz™ counters are stain and scratch resistant. They are also nonporous, so they never need to be sealed. However, Quartz™ is not heat proof, so to maintain the beauty of your countertop, do not place hot skillets or roasting pans directly onto the surface.
Made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, Quartz™ countertops are arguably the most durable option for countertops. Its non-porous surface and unique blend of beauty and low maintenance makes Quartz™ a popular choice for kitchens. The natural beauty of quartz is derived from its multi-dimensional gem-like color.

Engineered surfaces that are made from a combination of roughly 90 percent ground natural quartz and about 10 percent polyresin. These specific percentages can slightly differ based on brands but will always be in the same area.
They are non-porous, which separates them from both granite and marble. This means that quartz countertops do not require the sealing that granite and marble countertops do. One thing you must watch out for is not exposing quartz countertops to excessive heat. High levels of heat can melt the resin and cause a permanent burn mark on the surface. Never set down hot pots or pans on a quartz countertop. Heat resistance is one of the only areas in which quartz does not match or surpass other countertop options.Homeowners often turn to quartz as an alternative to not only granite and marble but materials such as solid surface as well. While quartz can closely compare with granite and marble, it is of better quality than solid surface countertops.
