Engineered Quartz is quickly becoming the countertop of choice in the industry. As a fabricator, it would be safe to say that for every 10 jobs that we fabricate these days, 40% - 50% are some type of Engineered Quartz.
Here are a few reasons for its popularity:
1) Price point. As far as countertop materials go, Engineered Quartz is not overly expensive when you start comparing it to some of the popular natural stones on the market that share the same look as Engineered Quartz.
2) Maintenance. When it comes to a product that requires little maintenance, Engineered Quartz is a good choice. It is scratch resistant, stain resistant,
mold and mildew resistant and heat resistant. There is some care required and boundaries that you have to be aware of, but for the most part,
it is a very user friendly product.
3) Design. The switch is design styles have played a role in Engineered Quartz' success. Where the Tuscan and Mediterranean styles were very popular in the past, the new trend is toward Transitional and Contemporary Design. With Engineered Quartz, the monochromatic colors and consistent nature that comes with the product marries nicely with the decor in today's homes.
4) Choices. There are many, many Engineered Quartz manufacturers in the market, which means there an endless choices of colors and patterns. Brands like Silestone, Ceasarstone, Cambria, Zodiac and Pompeii are a few of the more popular names available to the consumer which equates to literally hundreds of color options to choose from.
Engineered Quartz is definitely the hottest product when it comes to countertops right now. For all the reasons mentioned above, if you are in the market for new countertop surfaces in your home, take the time to educate yourself on Engineered Quartz. It is a product that I highly recommend.
