What is Quartzite?

Quartzite, a result of nature’s transformation of sandstone, is a testament to both strength and vibrant beauty. Its crystalline structure and array of colors make it a unique masterpiece in the world of natural stone.

Benefits of Quartzite

Durability and Strength
Quartzite is renowned for its exceptional durability and strength, making it an ideal choice for various projects. It can withstand high levels of daily wear and tear, making it suitable for high-traffic areas such as kitchen countertops and flooring.

Aesthetic Versatility
Whether you prefer a subtle, neutral look or a bold statement, Quartzite can be found in a variety of styles, adding an elegant touch to any project.

Heat Resistance
Quartzite’s inherent heat resistance makes it perfect for kitchen use, especially around stovetops and ovens. This quality ensures the stone can endure high temperatures without harm, ensuring both functionality and long-lasting beauty.

Protecting Your Quartzite Surfaces

Sealing for Protection
Sealing is vital for protecting quartzite from stains and wear. Our high-quality 15-year sealer is applied during installation, but for earlier installations, we recommend resealing every 6-12 months. 

Regular Cleaning
Regular cleaning with natural stone-specific cleaners ensures your quartzite remains in top condition. Avoid using harsh chemicals and abrasive pads which can damage the stone. Opt for non-soap cleansers for a perfect, streak-free look.

Stain Management
Quartzite is resilient, but certain substances like oil and ink can leave marks if not cleaned promptly. Act fast on spills and use coasters for liquid containers to prevent stains.
