Granite and Quartz are popular household countertop materials. However, HanStone Quartz countertops have certain advantages over exotic granite countertops, such as a Limited Lifetime Warranty and no additional sealant costs.
HanStone Quartz countertops also come in a wide variety of colors from basic gray to eye-popping purple, edging options and the cost of quartz countertops is less than that of exotic granite.
While granite slabs come out of the ground as is, quartz countertops are a combination of 93% of the natural quartz found in granite, and a 7% combination of a binding material (resin) and a colorant. The quartz slabs are made into sheets between 2cm and 3cm thick, the same thicknesses as granite slabs.
This combination creates an extremely hard, non-porous surface resulting in a product that is harder than granite. Other stone surfaces like granite require sealing on a regular basis to provide additional wear resistance that matches the durability of a quartz countertop.
HanStone Quartz also resists heat and staining, which means that everyday cooking and spills will not affect the countertop surface. HanStone Quartz cleans up easily with a mild soap and water on a regular basis.
Renowned for its incredible depth and clarity, HanStone Quartz is also manufactured in Ontario, Canada, making it some of the finest quartz made in Canada using some of the highest quality quartz found anywhere in the world.
In addition, HanStone is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) as safe for indoor use for food preparation and consumption. HanStone is also a kosher product, which means that use in homes with certain religious or other beliefs that affect the manner in which food is prepared and eaten can use quartz countertops with peace of mind.
The HanStone Quartz price ranges between $35.00 to $75.00 per square feet for the material and between $70.00 and $100.00 when installed. This is less than many exotic marble or granite countertops. Since quartz-specific cleaner is not necessary, and there is no need for repeated sealing to protect the countertop from bacteria, this contributes to lower long-term cost of quartz countertops.
In addition, HanStone quartz comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty, which means that owners can install HanStone Quartz countertops without worrying, which is a claim that granite installers cannot make.
