Quartz Countertops Utica
Lets talk about quartz countertops. For the longest time kitchen countertops were made of regular materials covered in laminates, which seemed like a decent way to go until people started becoming aware of natural stone surfaces like soapstone, granite, marble and concrete. These materials were clearly superior, and so more and more kitchens started getting them. Out of all the new materials being used for counter tops, though, one in particular stands out, and that is quartz. Experts discovered that mixing 95 percent ground natural quartz with 5 percent polymer resins results in a beautiful, versatile and natural-looking material that’s incredibly hard while also surprisingly low-maintenance.
While the first thing many people praise quartz about is its incredible range of colors, there are other fantastic characteristics about it that make it such a special material. Take its durability for example: Its smooth surfaces allow easy and quick cleaning with most household products without any kind of damage. It’s also more resistant to heat than many other materials; and only diamonds, topaz and sapphires are harder than it. These qualities make it amazingly long-lasting and easy to maintain. They also make it perfect for luxurious kitchen counter tops of the variety you can find at Ivo Granite of Utica NY.
Such a variety is only possible due to the vast array of design possibilities that engineered quartz offers. It being more flexible than most other materials allows for a wider spectrum of shapes and edges in order to create unique and original pieces. Also, unlike stone and similar materials, it can be placed without screws on larger vertical surfaces without seams or fissures of any kind. These characteristics make it a wonderfully versatile kind of natural material that allows endless different uses in many different styles. At the same, it makes it the perfect choice of material for quartz countertops like the ones you can find at Ivo Granite in Utica NY.
As if that wasn’t good enough, there are other advantages of going for quartz countertops. Engineered quartz is naturally nonporous, which makes it resistant to scratches and stains the types of which abound in kitchens. And if you are constantly worrying about hygiene and health, there’s great news: Being nonporous also makes it a much less hospitable place for bacteria to live in, which is why it’s 99.9 percent bacteria free. Add to that its natural glossy sheen, its anti-cracking attributes and the fact that it doesn’t have to be sealed and re-sealed every so often, and you get the perfect material for a kitchen surface.
It’s an easy choice, quartz countertops are the way to go. Just bare in mind that installation and other technical assistance should be handled by someone who knows what they’re doing.
