The Most Durable Countertop You Can Find

What is most important when you’re shopping for a countertop? Are you on the hunt for the most alluring aesthetics? Are you in search of what’s trending right now? Do you want something that will help your home on the seller’s market?

What if we told you that we have a material that checks all three of those boxes and is the most durable countertop that you can find? The material we’re referring to is quartz, an engineered stone that we specialize in here at Legacy Tile & Granite.

Durability matters to a lot of people, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. These two areas of the home see high levels of activity, so it can be irritating to constantly have to think about the state of your countertop. If you install quartz, you won’t have to give it a second thought. Quartz is easy to clean, lasts forever, and is gorgeous to boot.

Quartz Countertops Last

Many types of countertops degrade over time—even natural stone has an expiration date, even if that date is a hundred years from now. The special thing about quartz is that no matter how much time passes, it’s not going anywhere. It’s made of materials that last and last; it has the potential to outlast your home itself.

The polymers and resins added to quartz’s composition are what make it so resistant to aging. They seal the natural pores of the stone and create a nonporous surface that never needs to be sealed.

The Toughness of Quartz

The toughness of quartz goes beyond the fact that it lasts forever and that it’s nonporous. Here are a couple more reasons why it is the most durable countertop:

They’re physically hard.

Quartz is a very hard material. Because it’s so hard, you’ll have a difficult time chipping, cracking, or scratching it. It’s much less likely to crack than natural stones because of the resins in its composition—these additives make it more flexible.

The good news is that even if your quartz countertop does sustain damage, it can be easily repaired.

Quartz is a great choice for both kitchens and bathrooms because it isn’t likely to stain. There are no pores for stains to find their way into, which also means quartz offers a very hygienic surface.

They require a low level of maintenance.

Not much goes into taking care of your quartz countertops. They hold onto their shine naturally, without the need for polish, and all you need to clean them with is soap and water.

As we stated previously, quartz never needs to be sealed. That’s one duty you can cross off your list.
