The History of Quartz Countertops

The History of Quartz Countertops

The Earth is full of many different minerals including quartz, which is the second most common and hardest mineral. Manufacturers saw its potential for a surface material more than 50 years ago.

The inventor, Marcello Toncelli developed an engineering process to create quartz slabs combining raw quartz crystals and polymer resins in 1963. Manufacturing quartz could be controlled to produce a variety of products, from fine to course grained, with varying color depending upon the pigments added during the process and varying sparkle. This was absolutely innovative and at the time practically unexplored, so the usage of quartz countertops quickly became popular in Italy and have been featured in European kitchens for many years. In the ‘90s, American consumers realized the significant benefits of quartz countertops, so the quartz boom started and continues to this day.

As a manmade material, quartz countertops have different benefits:

  • Consistent, uniform appearance.
  • Wide variety of colors.
  • Exceptionally hard and durable.
  • Very low porosity which limits bacterial growth.
  • Heat resistant.
  • No need for re-sealing.
  • Low maintenance.

It’s proven that quartz has a fascinating history and will be a good option for your project. Are you ready to take your countertops to the next level?

OUTDOOR COUNTERTOPS

OUTDOOR COUNTERTOPS

Are you planning to do a lot of cooking and entertaining outdoors? Outdoor kitchens are a great option, and choosing a countertop material for it, is an important decision since it will be constantly exposed to different weather conditions.
An outdoor countertop needs to be durable, resistant, easy to clean and beautiful, so the material options won’t be the same as for indoor ones. The best choices are:

  • Natural Stones such us granite or quartzite are recommendable. You can select a unique stone that will stand on its own. Additionally, they offer you long-term durability and color-resistance. Sealing your stone may seem unnecessary but an extra layer for durability is highly recommended.
  • Concrete is very durable. Many designs are natural and minimalist, but you can also customize your countertops by setting tiles or stones into the concrete or using a colored stain. (It is important that you have a professional install the concrete countertops because, improper installation will make them crack over time.
  • Tile is generally a less expensive option than a whole slab of stone, and there is a wide variety of options to choose from. Talk to your contractor to discuss the proper maintenance as this largely depends on the type of climate you live in.
    Finally, avoid manufactured countertop materials such as Quartz and Corian because they are not designed to resist fading when exposed to UV rays. Keep these requirements in mind when selecting your outdoor countertop materials.
CARE & MAINTENANCE OF GRANITE COUNTERTOPS

CARE & MAINTENANCE OF GRANITE COUNTERTOPS

Nowadays, granite is a popular choice for your countertops. Caring for granite is different from caring for other countertop material because it is a natural stone. In order to keep it in good condition, we recommend you:

Blot up spills immediately

Accidents happen! Acidic fluids like wine, sauces, sodas and juices can stain the surface of your countertops, so it’s important to clean up the spill as soon as it happens.

Clean surfaces using a sponge or soft cloth

These materials are easy and gentle on the granite. They will help you to prevent scratches away the sealant.

Protect the surface from hot utensils

Granite is known for its admirable resistance to heat. It’s best to use a trivet or hot pad beneath a pot to avoid a thermal shock or some scratches.

Sealing

It’s a regular maintenance task for granite that cannot be ignored. It should be every 6-12 months.

Avoid cleaning products

Most of the household cleaners have acidic ingredients which tend to corrode and destroy the sealant on your countertops. Instead, you should try with cleaners created for granite.

COUNTERTOP AND SEAMS

COUNTERTOP AND SEAMS

Seams are to create a larger countertop piece. Most kitchens do require at least one seam in their countertops. They are formed when two separate stones are molded together.
Many clients want to know what they should expect in terms of the quality and visibility of the seam

COLORS AND VEINING PATTERNS

Your choice of colors and patterns will dictate how visible the seams will be. Light colors with fewer patterns create more contrast between the stone and the seam, which makes it more visible. That is why it is best to select darker colors with more patterns when seams are inevitable.

LOCATION OF THE SEAM

When seams are formed on the stone, manufacturers use very durable materials to ensure that the bond is strong. However, at Granite Impression our experts will propose the seams to make your countertop look the best.
