Marble Treasure now offers stunning quartz countertops to residents in Toronto and the surrounding areas. Quartz may not be as popular of a countertop material as granite or marble, but recently, customers have begun looking for different types of materials to use in countertops. Marble Treasure strives to meet these needs by offering a variety of different materials for countertops, including quartz. This trendy countertop material can now be purchased for installation in any home.
Granite has long been one of the most popular countertop materials. Home renovation shows often show homeowners installing granite countertops and loving how the final product looks. However, Marble Treasure professionals urge their customers to stop and consider other options, including quartz, before making a final decision. There are many other luxury materials that can be used for countertops that may be a better fit.
Quartz is a very flexible material, making the stone much easier to install than granite. However, quartz is very strong, too, and will hold up to a great amount of use. The easier installation often means that less work has to be done in the kitchen or bathroom, allowing for a faster installation time with less mess. Quartz is not as porous as granite, either. Porous stones have to be sealed before being used as countertops or flooring, a process that must be repeated yearly if granite countertops are to maintain the look that people love. This extra maintenance adds another layer of cost and time commitment to the granite that quartz does not have. Quartz is non-porous and needs no yearly maintenance.
Another reason why Marble Treasure recommends quartz countertops to customers is that quartz is a long-lasting material. Granite will fade over time, especially if the kitchen countertops are heavily used. This material does not stand up to constant wear and tear. Quartz, on the other hand, can handle a higher amount of traffic and use. Families with multiple children may want to reconsider granite simply due to the fact that the stone will wear out more quickly than other materials like quartz.
