Characterized by consistency, Quartz offers a minimal maintenance experience while appealing to a more modern decorator. Famous for its lighter colors and grey or beige veining, Quartz can range from sleek and bright to broody and complex.
Comprised of +90% ground Quartz and ~10% resins and polymers, Quartz is man-made. It boasts superior stain and scratch resistance.
Cut from the earth, no two slabs of Granite are the same. Nature’s patterns illustrate complexity in this stone, and a uniqueness that traditionalists covet.
Granite exhibits strong resistance to heat, scratching, and chipping. With continued maintenance, this porous stone will avoid staining, but isn’t as simple to maintain as Quartz.
Like Granite, Quartzite finds its origins in the earth, and only the earth! It carries many of the same qualities as Granite, appealing to those homeowners who desire the light colors of Quartz but the characteristics of an earth-made stone.
Quartzite brings positive features from both Granite and Quartz, providing longevity and style that can handle your day to day demands.
