When it comes to countertop surfaces, you have a wide variety of choices. However, for the ultimate balance of beautiful natural stone and easy-maintenance manufactured materials, quartz is the one to choose. 

Q Premium Natural Quartz from MSI offers the best of both worlds—beauty and function. This masterful material provides a sustainable, durable, and healthy surface you can rely on. If you find that keeping up with your countertop maintenance is difficult, then prepare to relax with this material. That’s because with quartz, maintenance is minimal, so you can spend more time cooking meals instead of tending to your counters. 

Still need more reasons why you should purchase quartz? Let’s take a deeper look at the top five benefits of quartz countertops. 

#5. Sustainable Material

Quartz is inherently eco-friendly because the natural quartz material that composes much of it comes directly from the earth. When compared to other countertops, it features a longer replacement life, and is even recyclable. In fact, some of MSI’s Q Premium Natural Quartz collection is made up of 35 percent post-consumer recycled glass.

If you’re a green building designer or architect, you’ll be happy to know that using Q may help contribute LEED points to your project because of its recycled content and low-emission materials. 

#4. Made to Last

Modern quartz is incredibly durable and low maintenance. It’s extremely strong since its man-made polymers reinforce the natural quartz. With proper care, your surface will stay shiny and smooth without the need to ever seal, polish, or condition your quartz countertop.

Keeping it looking like new is a cinch, too, since quartz is inherently scratch-, scorch-, and heat-resistant. These may be important decision-making factors if you have a busy, active family. Spills and other messes are easily taken care of with a damp cloth or a sponge and a bit of soap and water.

#3. A Healthy, Clean Surface

When you choose quartz for your kitchen, you can be at ease knowing that your smooth surface won’t harbor and grow bacteria or other microorganisms. It’s an ultra clean, hygienic option that’s safe for the entire family. Your quartz also helps create a healthier indoor environment because it’s a non-toxic surface that doesn’t contain any foreign substances that may harm the earth or your health. 

#2. Lifetime Guarantee
