Quartz countertops get high marks for both beauty and durability. As a form of engineered stone this type of surfacing combines both the attractiveness and robustness of stone with the benefits that modern technology can bring.

That technology, which includes a resin binder and added colors, gives quartz surfacing benefits that some natural stones don't have. In some ways, it's like getting the best of both worlds.

Quartz is a very hard material, second only to diamond. Quartz surfaces are composed about 93% quartz, with the remainder made up by a resin binder and color additives. The resin binds the quartz minerals together and the combination is "baked" under heat and pressure.

There are many brands of quartz surfaces material in the market. The most popular brands are Silestone, Cambria, Caesarstone, Hanstone, SamSung Radianz, Dupont Zodiaq. So the natural question that arises often involves how and if they're different from one another. In other words, does it matter which brand you choose?

The short answer to that is "not really." The process used to make quartz surfacing and the materials and machinery used is virtually the same across the various brands.

The makeup of the material itself is the same across brands, about 93% of it made up of crushed quartz with the remainder being a combination of a resin binder and pigment.

What sets the quartz countertop manufacturers apart is the quantity and selection of colors and patterns. However, even in that sense, there are still many similarities among the different makers.
