Quartz Countertops in Denver

Compared mainly to granite, quartz countertops are another top performing material for kitchens and bathrooms. While this stone is technically “engineered,” it carries many of the same qualities that granite possesses, like moderate heat-resistance, stain-resistance, and reliability. Quartz countertops Denver homeowners recommend are poplular due to the wide variety of color and style options available as opposed to other materials.

Update Your Backsplash With a Seamless Slab

As a versatile option, quartz can also be used as a backsplash or a bathroom shower because it can be held in place with alternatives to screws. Another benefit of using quarts for these types of projects is that the seams between each slab can be made virtually indistinguishable, making your space look as polished to perfection. During the installation process, the professionals must be contracted – as this stone is extremely heavy and dense.

The binding agents involved in the fabricating of quartz creates a non-porous structure – disallowing bacteria and unwanted substances to penetrate the surface. There is no need to seal the slab, and it can be cleaned with soap and water and a non-corrosive sponge for lesser wear over time.

Difference Between a Fissure and Crack in Countertops


HTI

When looking into purchasing natural stone countertops, it is important to realize the difference between a crack and a fissure. This knowledge can save yourself from agonizing about whether your counter has a natural or unnatural opening if the situation arises.

A fissure is an elongated opening that is a natural geological formation or mineralogical crystallization. A crack on the other hand, is a broken piece of stone that is typically uneven, chipped, or widely separated. The tricky part is that sometimes a fissure develops into a crack given that the fissure in itself is a weak area of the stone.

The biggest difference is in how the fissure or crack occurred. A fissure is natural while a crack occurrs from an outside force, such as fabrication, transpiration, or installation. A helpful test to determine the difference is to look at the crack or fissure from a low angle. A crack has two points of reflection while a fissure has only one.
