Quartz countertops are a great choice because they are durable, low maintenance and offer a large selection of colors, finishes, and textures. Its non-porous surface makes them scratch and stain resistant, and it houses fewer viruses than other countertops. Quartz does not need to be sealed and is very hard to chip or crack.
