Builders Surplus is the premiere distributor of quartz countertops in Cincinnati, Newport and Louisville, Kentucky. Many people don’t know the benefits of quartz countertops or why they would be a great option for their home. There are many pros to quartz and very few cons.
Quartz is the most durable stone, second only to diamonds. It will hold up for your lifetime if treated appropriately. It is scratch resistant, and very very resistant to heat. It is typical to sit hot pans right on top of it without fear of cracking. It is also a man-made material. Unlike granite countertops, you are not limited to what nature has created. While the natural patterns of granite countertops can be exquisite, you can recreate those looks in quartz countertops, as well as so many more. With quartz you can find show stopping colors such as royal blue, fuschia, and lime green! You also have stark white, veining that imitates marble, and some that you would swear are granite.
Another benefit is the fact that quartz countertops never need to be sealed, unlike granite. They are very low maintenance. They are antibacterial and you can literally eat right off of them if you chose! Cleaning quartz is extremely easy and is family friendly.
Quartz is sometimes a step above granite in terms of price, but you do get what you pay for. If you’re going for an exotic granite, you could end up paying less for quartz, but it you choose one of our prefabricated granite options or custom granite options, quartz will be more expensive. However, color choices, durability, antibacterial qualities, and the lack of required maintenance make it a front runner for many homes. Granite countertops are not priced by square foot, but by design, so please see one of our kitchen and bathroom designers to schedule an appointment.
