Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock that starts out as sandstone and evolves over time under intense heat and pressure. It is quarried and then cut into slabs to be used for applications like countertops, flooring, wall coverings, vanity tops and stair steps.
What are the pros and cons of quartzite?
Quartzite is a naturally strong and very durable stone which is relatively heat resistant. One of the main benefits of quartzite is that many of the varieties have a similar look to marble, but require much less maintenance, so it can be a good option for consumers who would like marble countertops but want something sturdier.
As with all natural stone surfaces, spills should be wiped up as soon as possible and we recommend the use of a trivet for hot pots and pans.
Quartzite stone is incredibly durable and is one of our top picks for materials if durability is important to you.
Quartzite worktops work extremely well as it is resistant to most types of damage and can handle even your toughest days. All that is required is warm water and a mild dish detergent to wipe down your quartzite counters’ surface.
