Quartz Countertop Acceptance
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PURCHASE OF A QUARTZ COUNTERTOP!
Your quartz countertop is a big investment to your home. As with most investments there is cautionary information that we like to provide to you. Product education is very important to us and to you. This document is intended to disclose information on the quarts product you are purchasing.
Quartz is often chosen for the whiteness. The color white show can show slight changes in composition, hue, shade, reflection in surface properties. Being man-made does not exclude variations, slab to slab variations, nor white variations within a slab. A seam between different parts of the same material can yield perceived differences. Lighting type and intensity may also effect the perceived variations in the white color.
Quartz countertops are very stain resistant, but NOT stain proof. The quartz resins are vulnerable to stains from food. All quartz colors can be damaged by chemicals or cleaners. Avoid bleach and disinfectant wipes containing bleach. Keeping the contact time short, by wiping down the countertop, decreases the chance of damage.
Quartz surfaces are extremely hard, but heat is of concern. The resins in quartz countertops can only tolerate temperatures of about 150 degrees Celsius (302 degrees Fahrenheit). Higher temperatures can cause discoloring damage. Please always use trivets.
As with other hard rigid countertops, corners and edges of quartz countertops can chip or break. You can, however, decrease the risk of damage by choosing rounded edges and take extra care with other hard objects.
Cracks are unlikely but could occur with mechanically induced stresses, such as movement in cabinets. A solid and stable base is required.
Proper countertop care is important. Wipe them down using a soft cloth or sponge and a warm water soap mix is as needed. Give your quartz countertop the love it deserves!
