Quartz Countertops

Thompson Granite & Stone Inc. provides personalized service to customize the design of your project or complete remodel.

Thompson Granite & Stone Inc. has established a reputation in Utah for unsurpassed quality when it comes to quartz.

Quartz countertops are made from engineered natural quartz material. The main ingredients in a quartz countertop are ground quartz crystals, polyester resins that bind the crystals, and added color pigments. Recycled glass and metallic flecks may also be added. The resins are responsible for making the material non-porous, scratch, and stain resistant. Earlier quartz was only offered with a polished surface; now you can ask for other finishes. A quartz countertop is available in matte, textured, and glossy finishes. Quartz countertops can also be fabricated in a variety of edge options. A wide choice of eye-catching specimens are available as various color pigments, and patterns are added during the fabrication process.

Quartz countertops are durable, do not absorb liquids and they are not easily stained. A sponge and warm soapy water are sufficient for cleaning and maintenance. Engineered quartz countertops can be fabricated to resemble natural granite and marble stones. In the past, quartz was not considered as appealing as natural stones as it lacked the color and pattern variations of natural rocks. But, today it is manufactured in such a way that it is hard to detect the difference.

Quartz is a great option for kitchens & bathrooms. However, if you do not want seams, this may not be the best choice for large countertop designs. Quartz also does not have a tolerance for extreme heat.

Choosing the right product for your countertops is crucial. At Thompson Granite & Stone, Inc. we want you to be completely informed and educated on every option. Give Dwight a call to schedule an appointment. His personalized attention will ensure that you make the best decision for your investment.
