Durability is a hallmark of a quality product. When it comes to countertops, one immediately thinks of quartz when you’re looking for something not only attractive but long lasting. Whether you’ve got a show quality kitchen or one that’s heavily used and family oriented, we all want the same thing—a great product that does what it’s supposed to.

There have been many countertop trends through the years. Whether people like the convenience of a cheaper-priced, but not as attractive Formica counter, like the look of a wooden butcher block counter, are drawn to the elegance of granite, or like the versatility of quartz counters, there’s something for every budget.

Quartz Countertops Provide Durability and Choice

If you live in the Greater Toledo, Ohio area, you’ve probably noticed how popular quartz countertops have become. One of the things that people appreciate is not only the durability, similar to granite, but the availability of choice.

With granite, you’re limited to what nature gives us. Thankfully, with quartz, you can customize your countertops and find them in multiple styles. The process of quartz uses crushed stone, then mixes it with a special resin which is the element that adds an extra layer of strength to your counter tops. The other great thing about this is that the treatment with the resin allows the developers and manufacturers to add different colors to the mixture.


When everybody and their brother has a black or tan granite countertop, it’s nice to finally have more choices. With quartz, you aren’t limited to these simple shades, and can go for something with texture and vibrancy to something like a specific, custom color.

Whether you want a modern or traditional feel, upgrading your countertops is a great way to freshen up an outdated kitchen without the expense of having to remodel the entire room. Picture great marble veining as an interesting detail, or go for a more sandblasted look with specks of color to pick up an accent color like from your floors or wall. Another great look shows off some of the individual stone in the pattern.

An important feature worth mentioning when speaking of quartz countertops over granite counters is the affordability factor. Quartz counters can offer you a way to cut your cost.

This non-porous material is perfect for your kitchen. It’s hardy, holds up well, and helps you avoid scorch marks and scratches. It’s low maintenance, unlike butcher block counter tops which require more upkeep.
