Quartz Worktops

Here at the Marble and Granite company we provide quality kitchen worktops around the Essex area. The kitchen is a vital area of the house where a lot of family activity takes place.

Why buy a Quartz Worktop

Quartz countertops come in a wide range of colors, from light pastels to rich, dark tones. Quartz is a man-made material that combines the strength and durability of resin with the distinctive glitter of natural quartz crystal.

Quartz is so durable that most manufacturers offer a warranty, something you won’t find with, other stones. Quartz isn’t porous like other stone surfaces, so these worktops are much more sanitary in a home kitchen. You can keep them 99.9 percent bacteria-free.

Quartz comes in a nearly unlimited range of shades to match your interior colour scheme. Whether you’re having a new kitchen or bathroom, we can help you find a colour and design to match your décor.

Quartz is still one of the most popular choices of worktops alongside granite we have installed due to its durability and design styles. We have a huge portfolio of recent work we have completed for our customers over the years. If you are still undecided your style and need some ideas then feel free to ask to see our work.

How It’s Made

Quartz countertops are man-made engineered stone countertops formed by combining 90% ground quartz (a natural hard mineral) with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. This forms a very hard granite-like surface. The appearance depends on how the quartz is ground: coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance, while finely ground quartz produces a smooth look.
