NATURAL MARBLE V/S COMPOSITE MARBLE AND QUARTZ
If your client’s red wine and pasta Sundays are pushing your design from natural stone to quartz, it may be a myth about durability driving your design rather than your eye (or your client’s cooking). The differences between marble and quartz, for instance, are varied and complex, with each material excelling in different applications and under different conditions. The choice between engineered or natural surfaces is more than an issue of performance; it’s still about the look. Quartz is a good choice when designs call for consistency and uniformity like in kitchens with ultra-modern lacquered cabinetry. The unbroken surface of says a high polished gray or white quartz has a sleek formal appearance. It’s also available in a wide variety of shades.
DURABILITY OF MARBLE COUNTERTOPS COMPARED TO QUARTZ COUNTEROPS
The durability of marble versus quartz is probably one of the most misunderstood subjects to those inside and outside the trade. Marble is luxurious but requires maintenance. True. But does its need for maintenance means it’s fragile or impractical? Actually, no. Every material has its own absorption rate. It’s a good indicator of how quickly something will penetrate the surface. The lower the absorption rate, the more density it has, and the more time to wipe up spills. Granite for instance has a very low absorption rate, which makes a good choice for any surface. Quartz also has a low absorption rate because its engineered surface is made with a resin made from petrochemicals. Marble is known for staining because when left unsealed many varieties can absorb liquids more quickly.
