If you’ve been in the market for new countertops, most likely you may have come across engineered stone countertops.

Many don’t think to ask the question as to what differentiates the stone because its not noticeable to the naked eye.  Both granite and engineered stone have their benefits, but in this blog, let’s discuss what the benefits of Quartz engineered stone and its benefits as a countertop choice from Hartford Granite and Marble are.

The overall look of quartz engineered stone: 

Quartz patterns can be consistent or solid, and can range from neutrals to strong, bold, colors and patterns.   We also offer a selection of marble patterns, for the customer looking for that elegant, timeless look.

Engineered stone holds up extremely well 

Quartz engineered stone is an excellent choice for kitchen counters and bathrooms.   In particular, for the customer who has an active kitchen (high-wear users).   

Additional Engineered stone benefits to mention:

  • Heat Resistant
