Quartz Countertop Surfaces

For years, granite had been the designer’s choice for countertops. Now, with the availability of Natural Quartz Surfaces, everything has changed. Quartz Surfaces offer the best value in countertops today, and are available in a variety of patterns, colors and edge details. Quartz Surfaces are produced using the Breton Process, which takes a 93% quartz and 7% resin mixture, and forms it into a slab that is at once stronger and more flexible than granite, with the same feel you expect from natural stone. Most importantly, Quartz Surfaces are non-porous, which makes them almost impossible to stain. Quality Kitchen Cabinet’s trusted manufacturers of Quartz Surfaces:
