Quartz is steadily rising in popularity with homeowners and designers alike. Aside from its natural beauty, quartz is harder and more durable than granite. But, best yet--it's nonporous and antimicrobial, so it's easy to keep your countertops relatively
bacteria-free. Because quartz counters use resin binders, stain-and odor-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew can’t penetrate their surface. So what's the one drawback to this type of countertop? It can be damaged by heat, so be sure to use heating pads
while cooking and stay away from installing it outdoors! It's sensitive to sunlight and may fade over time, losing some of its striking beauty and possibly voiding your warranty.
