Quartz countertops are a unique way to add elegance to a room while creating serviceable counter space. We have built and installed many custom countertops in quartz, which offers the colour variations of natural stone, but has more colour consistency than granite. Thankfully for residents of Alberta, PF Custom Countertops is staffed by some of the best designers and technicians in the industry. Our team of experts will work with you from start to finish, ensuring your project is completed successfully, and according to the highest standards.
Unlike granite, quartz is actually an engineered stone, as seven percent of its composition is made of resin binders and pigments. It is not porous, so sealing is not required; however, you do have to be careful about heat, as extreme temperature changes and prolonged exposure to heat will damage your quartz countertops. Additionally, countertops made of quartz are not advised for outdoor use because lengthy contact with direct sunlight can lead to discoloration over time.
