Resistant to Damage
Quartz countertops are an engineered stone material and offered under various brands including Cambria, Zodiaq, and Silestone. Quartz products are made of 93 percent natural quartz mixed with pigments and acrylic resin.
Quartz is non-porous, never requiring sealants or polishing to retain its luster.
These surfaces are resistant to scratches, chips, stains and bacteria.
Quartz countertops can crack if exposed to direct heat over long periods of time. However, since no countertop is invulnerable, simply using a trivet or hotplate can prevent heat damage to quartz.
Granite typically refers to 100 percent natural high-grade stone that is quarried from different sites around the world. To date, granite is still a highly popular countertop material.
Granite countertops can crack or chip, and color and grain inconsistencies can make them costly to repair or replace. Granite is porous and must be sealed to prevent stains and discoloration. Granite may have larger, more visible seams compared to other countertop options. There is also a risk of naturally occurring radon emissions from granite.
These kitchen countertops are thin, lightweight, and more affordable materials made of compressed paper layers bonded with resin.
Laminate countertops can scratch, chip, burn or stain. Some lesser quality brands can even warp with exposure to high moisture and humidity, or melt with exposure to heat. However, proper care and maintenance can ward off most damage to laminates.
