Quality quartz countertops require the least amount of maintenance. They are extremely durable, offering a beautiful stone look without the need to reseal them every year. Granite countertops, on the other hand, have to be resealed annually to keep them at their best. Quartz, because of its natural non-porous nature, doesn’t absorb much, often needing simply to be wiped down with some soapy water and a dish cloth. With its natural scratch and stain resistance, quartz can be quite easy to take good care of in your home.
