Quartz is an engineered stone product consisting of 93% natural quartz and 7% resins and pigments.  There are many different brands and colours available at a variety of price points.  Because of the resins and the way it's made, it is a non-porous material that does not require any sealer.  It is very heat tolerant, but not quite as heat tolerant as granite so it is recommended that you use trivets or hot pads under hot pots.  Quartz is also extremely resistant to scratching and staining, making it a top choice, right next to Granite.  With colours ranging from solid to speckled to very natural looking like granite or marble, you are sure to find a colour that works for you.

We carry many brands including Caesarstone, GS Quartz, Samsung Radianz, Silestone by Cosentino, Quartzforms, Dupont Zodiaq and Wilsonart!  Browse through the quartz pictures to get an idea of what's available, but remember that there are even more options than we have pictured here!
