Quartz: Edmonton's Choice for Elegant Countertops and More


While granite is a durable and beautiful option for your kitchen countertop or vanity tops, another great option is quartz! Edmonton’s Ideal Tile & Terrazzo Ltd. is a supplier of granite, quartz and more, but we also create custom furniture and fireplaces, backsplash tiles and stone entryways for homes and businesses throughout the area.

If you’re interested in updating your kitchen or bathroom, a great addition to your renovation project is a brand new countertop! There are many reasons to choose quartz over other materials, but we’re here to help you decide. Take a look at the facts about quartz so you can make an educated decision about your new kitchen countertops or dining room table.

Beneficial Attributes of Quartz

Paying for a new stone countertop or tile backsplash is a big investment. That’s why, when choosing the material for your project, you want to focus on many different factors such as how long the product will last, how much maintenance you’ll have to put in and how much aesthetic appeal the material will add to your home or business. Quartz offers Edmonton many beneficial attributes that make it a great option for your project, including:

Quartz tile
  • Aesthetics – Quartz countertops are manmade, formed from crushed natural quartz minerals and adhesive resin. Quartz boasts hundreds of colours and patterns available, with even more combinations than most stone countertops because pigments can be added in the binding process to create new designs.
  • Durability – Quartz is an extremely hard material; because of their construction, quartz slabs don’t include any softer minerals or impurities. This makes it one of the most durable products available for countertops and more.
  • Food Safe – Quartz countertops are less porous, which make them a better choice for countertops. Food particles cannot penetrate the surface, so bacteria cannot grow on quartz.
  • Maintenance – As a nonporous material, quartz requires little maintenance other than disinfecting after being used as a food preparation surface.

Should You Choose Quartz or Granite?

In our opinion, there’s never a wrong choice when deciding between granite and quartz. Both materials are beautiful and versatile for your home or business renovations.

However, as you can see from the list above, quartz does have some benefits.
