Quartz countertops work quite beautifully in kitchens and bathrooms, offering visual appeal that rivals that of granite surfaces. The quartz used for countertops in northern Utah homes doesn’t come from a quarry. The material is engineered, made from crushed quartz mixed with polymer resins and pigments – and the composition gives it a gorgeous, three-dimensional appearance that closely mimics the look of natural stone. Though quartz countertops are undeniably stunning, that isn’t the only reason they’ve become a top choice for homeowners in the greater Salt Lake City area. Here’s what makes quartz an excellent alternative to natural stone.


Currently, AMC has more than 15 quartz products regularly stocked that can be tailored to fit all types of consumer needs and projects.


​Quartz is an engineered stone, and the manufacturing process allows for an exceptional variety of colors and patterns – much greater than can be found in natural stone slabs. Countertops can be customized to coordinate with the color scheme of any kitchen or bathroom, and quartz can also be made to look just like natural stone.


​While natural stone slabs have veining and noticeable changes in pattern, quartz countertops are free from defects and blemishes. They look absolutely uniform, with no imperfections, and the overall appearance is always rich and luxurious, with an impressive depth to the finish.


Quartz is a non-porous material, impermeable to liquids. As such, engineered stone countertops don’t harbor viruses or bacteria – which is certainly beneficial for kitchens and bathrooms. Plus, the non-porous nature of quartz makes it highly resistant to staining, even with spills of acidic substances like wine, coffee and tomato juice. 


​Engineered stone is designed for strength, and quartz countertops almost never suffer scratches, chips or cracks. Once installed, they’re nearly impossible to damage unless extreme heat is applied to the surface. However, using trivets for straight-from-the-oven pans and hot pots is a simple solution.


Taking care of quartz countertops is a piece of cake. Unlike natural stone, engineered stone contains a built-in sealant – so there’s no need to seal the surface on a regular basis. A quick wipe-down with a damp cloth or warm, soapy water and a soft sponge is enough to keep the countertops clean and looking beautiful.
