Quartz Countertops in Resistance to Knives and Hot Pots
Quartz countertops are gaining increasing popularity, according to a recent consumer report. A key reason for this is their outstanding resilience. In fact, they achieved the highest score for resisting damage caused by hot pots, abrasive pads and sharp knives.
Homeowners are not only choosing them because of their strength, but also because of the appealing aesthetics. Quartz countertops are available in a wide range of textures and colours – vibrant tones like orange, red and bright green with subtle surfaces that feel just like natural stone. A quartz surface will work well in any design motif, from ultra modern to highly traditional.
The reason why quartz is so durable is because it is one of the hardest minerals on Earth. It’s more resilient than stone, granite and marble. What’s more, the countertops are designed to tolerate temperatures up to 150° C, so you’ll never have to worry about them cracking. Caesarstone is so confident about the resilience and strength of this surface that Canadian customers are offered a lifetime warranty.
Another main advantage of quartz countertops is that they don’t need any resurfacing, they are easy to maintain, and they are incredibly hygienic. Last, but not least, quartz is an eco-friendly choice, which is an important factor for many Canadians.
