A stunning alternative to natural stone like granite or marble is quartz. While many may consider quartz to be a natural stone, it actually is not. This surface is a manufactured, man-made product that is stunning and can mimic that of natural stone. One of the advantages of using quartz on your countertops is that it can be fabricated into vibrant modern colors that you cannot get in a natural stone. Depending on the look you want to achieve in your space, quartz may be the right choice for you. At Half Price Countertops, we offer a wide selection of quartz products in our massive 12,000 square-foot Pompano Beach showroom.

Quartz has a non-porous surface that is more stain resistant than granite, marble, and concrete. When you choose a product like quartz to use on your countertops or backsplash, your home will look stylish and sleek. Also, hygienic, its non-porous surface helps keep the germ population at bay.
