Quartz Countertops Are More Eco-Friendly Than Granite

Quartz countertops have overtaken granite as the most popular kitchen countertop. Quartz stone is the most environmentally friendly building materials in 2015. As the best China Quartz Stone Supplier, SHUNSEN INDUSTRIES CORPORATION provide various types of quartz stone for your choice.

Stone products such as granite often come under fire because mining, cutting, and transporting the stone uses extensive resources. While some granite is domestic, a large percentage comes from Italy, China, India, Africa, and Brazil and large quantities of fossil fuel are needed to get it to America. There is considerable waste generated in the quarrying process, especially as many slabs crack and are not useable. Additional waste that occurs in the fabrication and installation processes is not usually recycled.

Producing quartz countertops is an environmentally sound process. Caesarstone, a major manufacturer of quartz products, claims that it recycles 97% of the water used in cutting and strives to use minimal resources for shipping, handling, processing, and production. This company also uses 42% post-consmer recycled material in its production. Other manufacturers such as Cambria boast similar statistics.

While you may appreciate the environmentally-friendly aspects of quartz, you may be more concerned about how it looks and performs in your home. The best thing to do is work with a local dealer and visit their showroom to get a hands-on introduction to the material and it's many benefits, including:

Quartz comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns, including solids. You can get the look of granite and other natural stones if you want, but neutrals and high-intensity tones are in the palette as well. Unlike granite, which has variations from slab to slab, quartz has a consistent color and pattern.

The product is naturally strong, which makes for durable countertops that are more resistant to chips, burns, or cracks. While you should treat all stone with care, quartz will hold up for years.
