Quartzite Countertops

The Look of Marble, But More Durable and Stain Resistant

Why Quartzite Countertops?

The Look of Marble

Quartzite countertops are a popular choice for homeowners and commercial clients. Natural quartzite has a marble-like aesthetic while being more durable than granite. Quartzite is typically found in shades of white and gray with hints of brown and black, but there are other colors of quartzite resulting from imperfections and differences in mineral content.

More Durable than Granite

Quartzite is a sandstone that was subjected to intense pressure and heat. While sandstone is relatively fragile, quartzite is extremely hard (tougher than granite), and will not scratch as easy as marble. Although quartzite is extremely durable the presence of calcium in the stone makes this material more susceptible to etching. With this in mind we recommend installing quartzite in a honed or leathered finish to help it age gracefully.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

Quartzite countertops are significantly less porous than marble which will help protect the countertop from staining. It is recommended to seal a quartzite countertop periodically. Sealing is an easy process that takes very little time or effort. A sealed quartzite countertop can be easily cleaned using soap and water and will stay beautiful for as long as you own it.

Increased Home Value

Quartzite adds luxury and richness to kitchens, bathrooms, and living areas, and will help increase the perceived value of a home or building. Quartzite has the look and veining characteristics of marble, but the durability and ease of maintenance of granite. It is these qualities that make homeowners prize a quartzite countertop.
