Quartz countertops are some of the most popular countertops on the market today, thanks to their low maintenance, scratch resistance, and not needing to be sealed before use. A wide variety of colors is able to be matched to your current kitchen layout & design preferences. In addition to this, quartz counters are less likely to stain thanks to the presence of the resins on the surfaces.

How Much Does quartz countertops Cost?
While the cost of the actual countertop material depends on the quality of quartz countertop you select, there are other out of pocket cost considerations to also take into effect when comparing quotes or planning your kitchen remodeling budget. In addition to the cost of materials used, you should consider the cost of installation, backsplash cost, & additional add-ons cost.
Installation Costs of Quartz Countertops
Installing quartz countertops must always be performed by a professional countertop installer. Installing a countertop includes many different actions, including: edge fabrication, leveling, seam joining, fixture & sink cutouts, etc. If your kitchen layout is unique or relatively complicated, expect the price of installation to be slightly higher than a simpler kitchen.
One of the most forgotten costs of replacing your countertops is adding a matching backsplash. With its non-porous surface, many homeowners choose to use quartz as a matching backsplash for behind their sink. If you are considering adding a backsplash, be sure to factor that additional cost of materials & installation when determining your budget.
Add-Ons & Special Cuts
As part of a special added touch or feature, some homeowners will elect to have their installer cut them a few cutting boards that match their counters. In addition, custom kitchens often have unique layouts, requiring special cuts into the countertops and creative solutions for the final product.
How to Clean?
By far, the best way to routinely clean your quartz countertop is simply with a soft rag & mild detergent. Never use an abrasive brush or any bleach or highly acidic cleaners. These will almost certainly damage your countertop beyond repair. Although quartz is highly stain resistant, still be sure to quickly wipe up spills to avoid permanent staining. If you do have a difficult stain, use glass cleaner and a non-abrasive sponge to get those tougher spots.
What Maintenance is Required?
For ongoing maintenance to allow your quartz countertop to shine and look great for years to come. Avoid putting hot pans directly onto the countertop surface, as this may cause the counter to crack or become permanently damaged with quick changes in temperature. Also avoid using sharp knife directly on the surface; while they are scratch resistant, there is still a chance for them to be scratched depending on the level of pressure applied. Following these guidelines will surely help your countertops last and look great for years to come!
