Quartzite is perfect for those who are looking for durable natural stones that still offer a broad selection of colors and textures for different themes in the house.
The main characteristic and advantage of quartzite countertops is their durability. It has the aesthetic appearance of marble, but is comparatively harder and denser which makes is not water or acid soluble and resistant to scratching and chipping. Also, the lack of pores in its structure gives an easy-to-wipe-down surface as well as lowering the risk of grime and microbes accumulating inside. Further, quartzite is highly resistant to UV rays, which is fantastic if you’re using it in an outdoor setting or in a room that gets tons of direct, natural light. Like all natural stones products, quartzite countertops require sealing before use.
