Quartz is making a name for itself as one of the best countertop options for homes and businesses across the country. Hitting the mark on today’s “must-have” qualities, quartz is winning out against some of the more popular countertop choices on the market today, and we’ll tell you why.
The Facts About Quartz
Quartz is an engineered stone. It is created by combining approximately 95 percent ground natural quartz with five percent polymer resin. Granite Transformations offers a broad selection of beautiful quartz countertops that can add elegance and sophistication to your home. Read our blog article, “Fact or Fiction?

The cost of quartz can range anywhere from $50 to $100 per square foot (or more), depending on the quality and other inherent product benefits. Granite Transformations guarantees the quality of its quartz with a Lifetime Limited Warranty because it is created in its own manufacturing plant in Sebring Florida.
The Benefits of Quartz Countertops
Shopping for new countertops can be overwhelming, so knowing what you want is just as important as knowing what you don’t want. Here are some reasons why choosing quartz countertops may be the best option for you:
Quartz will give you the freedom to place a hot pot on the counter, taking the stress out of busy cooking nights.
Quartz is extremely strong, making it less prone to scratches and chips.
Nonporous and stain-resistant
Quartz countertops are nonporous, so they inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew, and they resist stains.
An additional benefit of quartz countertops is that they require no polishing, sealing or reconditioning, which will save you money in the long run.
Quartz countertops are safe and virtually free from radon gas emissions (a colorless, odorless gas which has been known to be the second leading cause of lung cancer in America, according to the EPA).
Available in a variety of colors
Since quartz is man-made, it can be manufactured in a broad spectrum of colors. If you can dream it, it’s possible with quartz.
