What is Quarts? Quartz, also known as engineered stone, as the name implies it is a countertop product that is made of quartz and resins. Before granite slabs were resined, Engineered Stone had one major advantage over its natural counterpart, it was difficult to stain. Now with the advent of resined slabs, that advantage is gone. The primary differences are the appearance. Manmade product s come in a large range of consistent colors which do not occur naturally in nature.
You will often see engineered stone being use in commercial settings such as schools, hospitals and eating establishments where the ability to be totally sanitized and disinfected is key. However Quartz manufacturers are coming up with beautiful design features that will also allow for consistency demanded in many applications.
