What is the Most Durable Countertop Material? Blog

When choosing a countertop material, it is important to pick something that can handle the workload. Learn why quartz is the most durable material available for countertops.

Countertops are the workbench of the home and suffer more wear and tear than most areas.

From the kitchen to the bathroom, your countertops endure spills, stains and scuffs unlike any other surface in your house. They serve as cosmetic counters, homework stations, food prep areas, and art easels. At times, they host science experiments or take the place of a diaper-changing table.

While their versatility is a gift, it demands durability — the fortitude to survive both love and abuse.

When choosing materials for your home’s countertops, it is important to pick something that can handle the workload. At HanStone Quartz, we strike a balance between durability and visual aesthetic.

Quartz is the most durable and luxurious material available for countertops and is perfect for homes, offices, retail stores, hotels and more. It is made of at least 90 percent naturally mined quartz and combined with high-quality polyester resins and pigment to give you an option without the maintenance of similar products.

Why Quartz is the Most Durable Countertop Material

While our quartz countertops are great for any space, we believe they are perfect for homes for several reasons:

1. Easy to Care For

Unlike other natural stone surfaces, our countertops are non-porous and do not require sealing. Many other stone surfaces absorb moisture from food, which can harbor harmful bacteria and cause health concerns.

Plus, the naturally lustrous material never needs to be conditioned or polished, giving you a beautiful, functional and hassle-free surface.

We understand accidents happen: the kids used the kitchen counter as a coloring book, powder exploded all over the bathroom sink, or a cooking accident led to bacon grease on everything. 

The good news is, quartz countertops could not be easier to clean — just use a mild soap and water.

Quartz is easy to care for because it is one of the hardest and most durable materials used for countertops — it’s virtually indestructible.

2. Unmatched Durability

As one of nature’s hardest materials, quartz is scratch and chip resistant to everyday use.  This means you can be worry free for years to come.

Because of this natural advantage, quartz countertops are also heat, bacteria, and stain resistant making them the perfect surface for kitchens and bathrooms.

While quartz countertops are heat resistant, avoid exposing them to extreme heat. Just be sure to use a potholder when putting a hot pan or baking dish on the counter.

3. Made to Last

Because of our unique Brenton™ manufacturing process, our quartz countertops are superior in quality and design. We source our quartz from around the world and incorporate thoughtful touches like colored glass, mirrors, mother-of-pearl, and small pieces of semi-precious stones, so you can find the best piece for your home.

We believe in not only providing a quality product, but also in enhancing life’s journey, which is why all of our countertops are under warranty:

  • Commercial 10-Year Limited Warranty
  • Residential Lifetime Warranty
