Never use abrasive cleansers or scouring pads on a quartz countertop because it can dull the surface. Products that can harm your counter include things like nail polish remover, drain cleaner and dishwasher rinsing agents. Even concentrated bleach and oven cleaners can cause damage. Certain chemicals can disintegrate the bond between the quartz and the resin. The process for installing quartz countertops is much like any other. A professional will need to visit your home to measure the cabinets and create a template. Manufacturing time averages about 2 weeks. Supports may be necessary in areas such as above the dishwasher, where there is no cabinetry. Next, the installers will put the new countertop directly on the base cabinets with adhesive. Home Advisor notes that it takes from a few hours to a full day to install a typical quartz countertop. After they are in place, the plumber can get started. Custom edge profiles add to the character of your design and make the countertops extra special. In most cases, an eased edge, which provides a smooth finish, bevel, and bullnose edges are standard and do not cost extra. There are a quite a few edge options to choose form, depending on your taste and budget.

Yes, we noted that quartz countertops are hard and durable but they can still be damaged. They stand up very well the regular, everyday usage, but can chip if you hit them very hard. Moreover, once damaged, they can be extremely difficult to repair, reports SF Gate Home Guide. Also, Udemy points out that while your coffee, tea or wine might not stain the countertop, long-term exposure to UV sunlight can cause discoloration. They also cannot be used outdoors. As with other man-made countertops materials like solid surface choices, you can't plop a hot pot directly on quartz countertops and expect it to be undamaged. Master builder Bob Vila cautions that a sudden change in temperature or leaving a hot pan the countertop may even cause it quartz to crack. It can also melt in heat above 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Trivets or pads are necessary to keep quartz countertops in tip-top shape and looking good. Quartz countertops are manufactured in sheets that are generally about 4.5 feet wide by 10 feet long. If your kitchen plan calls for very large expanses of countertop, you will likely need more than one piece and will have seams. Generally, seams are less noticeable on dark-colored quartz but can be very obvious on light-colored or multicolor countertops with obvious marbling patterns.
