Craftmark Discusses Benefits of Having Atlanta Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are durable, heat- and scratch-resistant and come in a wide variety of colors.

    ATLANTA, GA, April 30, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Quartz countertops in Atlanta offer many different colors to fit your design needs. Quartz countertops are engineered using 98 percent quartz and five percent resins and colorants to create a product that performs well and looks beautiful. Quartz is especially advantageous in the kitchen as it is known for its durability and long-lasting finish.

Quartz countertops are non-porous. They do not absorb water, oils or other fluids. They also repel stains caused by tea, coffee or corrosives such as lemon juice. Sealing is not necessary with quartz countertops, and because they are non-porous, they discourage the growth of bacteria.

No Scorch Marks
Quartz countertops are resistant to burns and scorch marks. The strength of the quartz allows for heat resistance if exposed for a short period of time. Keep in mind that prolonged exposure can cause cracking and damage because of the rapid temperature change. To keep your quartz countertop looking its best, use pot holders or trivets to protect the surface from prolonged exposure to high heat.

In Atlanta, quartz countertops are often chosen over granite because of the improved durability. They show less wear and tear and tend to rarely chip. Quartz is also scratch-resistant. You should still never cut directly on the countertops surface to preserve its beauty. Using a cutting board is safer and will help to protect your counter surface.

"Taking proper care of your quartz countertops in Atlanta will ensure that your counters look great for years to come. Follow the manufactures directions on how best to care for your new countertops", explains Melinda Pulliam, Director of Marketing.

Quartz countertops are a popular choice in kitchens and bathrooms as well as other areas of the home. Long-lasting great looks that are available in a wider range of colors allow them to fit into any decor and still provide the functionality that is desired.
