When choosing they type of countertops to install in your home, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of each type. Below are a list of pros and cons associated with quartz countertops.
Quartz Is Anti-Microbial
The resin used in quartz countertops actually creates a non-porous surface that blocks odor causing bacteria, mold, mildew and stains from penetrating the surface. This makes it a highly attractive option over natural stone slabs. Quartz allows for minimal upkeep while maintaining a gorgeous aesthetic appeal for years and years.
It’s Very Low Maintenance
Compared to natural stone or butcher block countertops (wood), quartz is a breeze to maintain! Simply wipe with soap and water for daily or weekly maintenance. Any surface stains can be quickly removed with light scrubbing, which is preferable for many homeowners. Just be sure to not use very harsh scrubbers, as it can decrease the countertop’s luster. Harsh chemicals can also have a negative impact on the look of your quartz countertop by breaking down the bonds of the chemical bonds. So, be careful and always opt for light chemicals if you decide to use something other than soapy water to clean your counters.
It’s Often The Best Choice From A Design Perspective
Because it’s resin based, quartz offers more options when it comes to different shapes and lengths. Marble and other natural stone types often are more difficult to cut because of chipping, and seams are very rarely seen in your slab when it comes to a quartz option. It’s more flexible and you have much more freedom when it comes to design (multiple color and style options)
Quartz Can Be Pricey
Like granite and marble, quartz slabs can be much more expensive that cheaper options like wood, concrete or laminate.

It Doesn’t Do Well In high Heat Environments
This may seem like a big negative because Henderson, NV can serve up some scorching heat in the Summer months. However, this con only really applies to temperatures over 350 degrees. This means that it doesn’t matter as much how hot it gets in your home, but does matter if you accidentally place hot pans on the surface. If you use a trivet when placing hot pans on your counter you should be fine. Most people only ever experience issues if they become forgetful and place an extremely hot pan on the surface for extended periods of time.
It’s Not The Best Choice For Outdoor Countertops
Direct sunlight for sustained periods of time can wear away the colors of your countertop. The bright Las Vegas Sun can wreak havoc on your countertop, causing warping and possibly splitting. There aren’t any suppliers currently that offer quartz countertops that are approved for outdoor, direct Sun use. This shouldn’t be a problem now that you know you should only install it indoors.

Quartz Countertop FAQ
We understand you still may have questions about whether or not quartz is the right material for your kitchen countertop. Below we’ve answered some of the most common questions about it. Please call us if you have any more questions, or to discuss options for your home.
Q. Is Quartz Seamless?
A. Great question! Although quartz is more versatile than natural stone slabs, it entirely depends on the measurements of your kitchen counters. All slabs of any kind tend to max out at a certain length, which means seams will exist in the quartz if your cabinets are longer than 125″. Seams are much less visible with quartz than with other natural stone slabs, but if your measurements are less than 125″ in length, your countertops will most likely be seamless.
Q. Is Quartz Less Expensive Than Marble or Granite?
A. It depends. If you get a low level granite or marble countertop, it’s likely that quartz will be more expensive. However, if you are comparing high grade natural stone vs quartz, it’s most likely going to be less expensive than the natural stone. Our design experts will be able to walk you through grades and help you make the best decision for your budget.
Q. What Should I Be Aware of With My New Quartz Countertops?
A. Quartz is extremely tough and durable, however it can be affected by extreme, direct heat. Although it’s typically not an issue, please remember to avoid placing pans fresh off the stove or out of the oven directly on your counter. It can also chip or break if enough force is applied to an edge, so try to avoid putting extremely heavy objects on the edges of your counter.
Q. Does Quartz Stain Easily?
A. No! Quartz is much less porous than it’s natural stone countertops and is resistant to oil, coffee (been there, done that), wine juice and most other common kitchen related spills. Simply wash with warm soapy water and you should have a stain free countertop for years to come!
