Once a granite or quartz worktop has been installed, the manual labor ends there. Other natural stones require more long-term maintenance in terms of sealing. Unlike other stones such as marble, quartz  and and granite are resistant against staining, so do not require a sealant in order to remain pristine for years to come. This makes for a cost-effective worktop for homeowners on a budget.

The pinnacle of hygiene

As the place where each family meal is prepared, it’s crucial that the kitchen remains as hygienic as possible. Quartz worktops are non-porous meaning that there is nowhere for bacteria to lurk and multiply. Soapy water and a cloth are all you need to keep your kitchen counters clean, which is ideal for large families hoping to save time on cleaning.

Heat resistant

So many kitchen counters are damaged after installation due to hot pans that leave scold marks. Quartz worktops are able to withstand much higher temperatures than other materials, meaning that they are less susceptible to heat damage. Heat pads are still recommended to be used to increase the longevity of your countertops but when mistakes happen and a hot pan is placed down, you have peace of mind that there will be significantly less damage.
