Quartz countertops have been storming the market for many sound reasons. Quartz comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns, is easy to maintain because it’s already perma-sealed during production, and is extraordinarily durable. It has the charm and class of natural stone, even though it is engineered.
Quartz kitchen countertops in South Carolina contain high concentrations of crushed quartz (silicon dioxide). And, in order to achieve desired colors and patterns, manufacturers of quartz add other minerals, resins, and pigments as well. Its versatility, durability, and ease of maintenance has made it extremely popular for homeowners looking for a unique countertop material in their kitchens.
