Move Over Granite: Quartz Countertops Are Here!, Anchorage, Alaska

For years, granite has been the top material for home countertops—but lately, more and more homeowners are opting for quartz countertops instead. According to Rino's Tile & Stone, more people in Anchorage, AK, are starting to prefer quartz because it offers higher durability and easier upkeep. It also doesn't hurt that quartz provides endless color choices to meet homeowners' unique kitchen designs.

Quartz countertops provide the best qualities that homeowners love about laminate and stone counters, plus its own extra features. Although some quartz countertops are entirely made up of the stone, the majority are actually manufactured to be around 95 percent quartz and 5 percent polymer resin, allowing them to remain hard and provide color options.

For example, many stone counters are porous. This makes it very hard to keep them clean. Quartz countertops are non-porous, making them much more sanitary and bacteria-free.

There is also no worry of quartz countertops wearing out anytime in the near future. They are highly resistant to staining and will not corrode under cooking oils or cleaning solutions. This makes it unnecessary to seal the surface.
