Is Quartzite Right For You Home?

Quartzite countertops, though they sound similar to quart countertops, are different for a few key reasons. Quartzite occurs naturally and is not an engineered surface. Meaning, the composition of the slab is NOT created in factory with various materials comprised into one. Quartzite IS a metamorphic rock that originated as sandstone. The sandstone is harvested from a quarry where it then is transformed into slabs and finished to become countertops, tiles for floors, walls, and backsplashes. For the most effective use of quartzite, it is best to have it sealed periodically to protect against stains.

Why Choose Quartzite?

Chances are, if you are building a new home or having your kitchen remodeled, you will be searching for a countertop that is efficient and eye appealing. When you choose quartzite for your home, you get a material that is very durable/hard, cost efficient, and aesthetically pleasing. Because this surface is created from sandstone and not engineered, one may think that there is a lack of colors available. That is not the case for quartzite! Quartzite mostly comes in a variety of white, cream, and beige colors. Aside from the base colors, you can find hues of green, blue, and red. These colors come naturally from the minerals in the earth which add wonderful texture and character to the countertops.
