The New Countertop Choice is Quartz

Natural stone countertops have actually become a must-have in today’s kitchens. More than ever before, you see granite, marble, engineered marble, soapstone, and even concrete. There is now a new competitor on the scene- engineered quartz countertops!


Quartz kitchen countertops and quartz bathroom countertops started showing up in the U.S. a couple of years ago after gaining extraordinary appeal in Europe.  Showcasing the best qualities of natural stone, along with its own special features, quartz counters, and quartz vanity tops are growing in popularity at an incredible rate. Engineered quartz countertops offer a tempting alternative to natural stone countertops with low maintenance and upkeep, high durability and vast color and pattern options. GCW fabrication experts will lower the price of quartz countertops.


Quartz slabs are made by combining crushed natural quartz stone and a resin binder that holds the stone aggregate together. Pigments are added during the process to give the countertop its color. The resulting slab is then polished to a high gloss or honed matte finish.  The outcome is a super-hard, low-maintenance, all-natural stone-look countertop. Gray quartz countertops and White quartz countertops are very popular and trendy color choices. Since they have an incredibly non-porous surface, they are basically stain proof, while also offering durability, beauty, and are available in a limitless variety and lower cost of quartz countertop colors.

Quartz counters are increasingly in demand today, especially because of its ability to complement any design style or decorating trend.
