What is Quartz?

Quartz countertops are crafted from approximately 93% natural quartz, combined with advanced polymer resins and colorfast pigments to create a sophisticated and durable work surface. The manufacturing process involves blending small pieces of quartz, and sometimes recycled mirror particles or colored glass with resin, which is then poured into large molds. Vacuum and vibration are employed to remove air, followed by a specialized baking process using heat and pressure. Once baked, the quartz block is sliced similar to a loaf of bread using a gang saw, then polished on one face before shipment. At the stone fabricator, custom countertop edge can be added based on customer preference, with options for polished, honed, or even leathered finishes available.

What differentiates quartz from natural stone?

Quartz, being an engineered stone, offers a consistent look and pattern, ideal for those seeking uniformity in their countertops. In contrast, natural stones exhibit more variation, with no two slabs being exactly alike. Quartz countertops come in a wide range of colors, including neutrals and bold shades, and their non-porous surface prevents bacterial buildup. They are resistant to staining, acids, and scratches, requiring only water and mild detergent for cleaning.

Manufacturers of Quartz

In the U.S. market, there are approximately 10-12 manufacturers of quartz slabs, with well-known brands such as MSI Quartz, Silestone, Caesarstone, and Cambria. At Great Lakes, we carry a variety of brands including MSI, Cambria, Silestone, and others. Most quartz countertops are manufactured using equipment from the Italian company Breton, ensuring consistent qualities such as composition, hardness, low porosity, and heat resistance. However, variations in appearance may occur depending on the brand. On our website you can view a sampling of the stones we carry. If you see a product you love on one of the quartz manufacturer pages, we have the capability to get any color from the brands we carry, just ask!

Care & Maintenance

Quartz countertops are highly resistant to acids, stains, and etching, requiring minimal maintenance. Routine cleaning with water and a mild detergent is sufficient, avoiding cleaners containing wax, oils, or high-pH formulas. If you do spill liquids such as wine, tea or lemon juice, take action quickly to clean stains. While quartz is durable, it’s recommended to use cutting boards and trivets to protect against scratches and heat damage.


Quartz countertops are comparable to granite in terms of durability, lasting for many years with regular cleaning and minimal maintenance. They’re ideal for kitchens and bathrooms due to their scratch and stain resistance. It is recommended that a hot pad or trivet is used on quartz countertops, they are not as heat resistant as granite and other natural stones.


While quartz countertops may be more expensive than laminates or solid surface options, they offer superior durability and aesthetics compared to these materials. When compared to granite and marble, pricing may vary depending on the color, pattern, or selected slabs.
