Pros and Cons of Quartz Countertops


  • Durability – Quartz countertops are made of an engineered material that consists of crushed quartz stone, pigments, and resins to bind it all together. This composition makes quartz countertops incredibly durable, which makes them a great choice for any project.
  • Appearance – Another benefit of quartz countertops is their incredible design flexibility. Because quartz is man-made, it can be manufactured to create just about any color, pattern, or design you can imagine.
  • Non-porous Structure – Unlike natural stone, which has tiny holes or pores throughout, quartz countertops are completely non-porous due to the resin content their structure. This means you will never have to have them sealed or re-sealed, but can instead enjoy counters that will remain smooth and stain-free.


  • Price – While you might expect quartz countertops to be cheaper than those made of natural stone, in many cases, their price is actually higher. While the increased durability and stain-resistance of quartz counters make them worth it in the eyes of many, you may prefer a less expensive option.
  • Not Heat Resistant – Another potential drawback of quartz countertops is that while the stone fragments may be heat-resistant, the resins used to bind them together are not, which means that putting a hot dish down on your counter is likely to damage it.
