Quartzite Specifications And Applications

Quartzite is a metamorphic rock, which means it was formed by another type of rock due to  changing heat and pressure conditions. Consequently, quartz sandstone forms quartzite under high pressure and heat. Normally, quartzite is between white and gray, but other minerals in the mixture can give the stone different colors such as red, yellow, blue…etc. 

Quartzite countertops’ colors allow it to be used for different applications. For example, you can have a white lux quartzite in the kitchen and choose a darker color for the bathroom countertops. The size of the slabs can be tailored to your needs as well. Thicknesses available include 2 cm and 3 cm slabs. Thinner cuts are better for vertical surfaces, and thicker ones are ideal for heavy-duty surfaces like kitchen countertops. The slabs usually come in honed and polished finishes.

If you are interested in quartzite slabs, we at Landmark Surfaces, are pleased to answer all your questions about the specifications and application of this lovely surface material.

    Why Should You Choose Quartzite?

    Quartzite is a natural stone; thus, the quartzite slabs show natural variations of patterns and movements that makes every surface unique. The colors and patterns are so earthy, such as marble. Therefore, most people prefer quartzite to other alternatives since quartzite countertops can give the luxury and natural feeling of an expensive marble. However, quartzite is much stronger than marble, and thus is more resistant to damage and scratches.
    Also, quartzite is highly durable with lower maintenance. You can use a quartzite countertop for many years as long as you seal and clean it regularly. It is resistant to simple spills or stains if you clean them without letting the stain sit on the surface for too long. It is the same for heat resistance, too. Formed from sandstone, quartzite is resistant to high temperatures, so you can use it more comfortably.

    Quartzite Price

    You can find quartzite slabs for $60 to $120 per square foot. Quartzite cost can vary on the type of slab, fabrication, transportation, finish, edge…etc. The price is usually higher than an average granite slab but lower than marble slabs. You should also take the countertop installation costs into consideration. It might be higher or lower, depending on your location.

    How to Take Care of Quartzite?

    If you follow certain maintenance routines, you can enjoy the quartzite countertop for a longer time. Here are some key points:

    Use A High-Quality Sealant

    Since the surface of the quartzite countertops is porous, they might suck up acidic or alcoholic liquids and look discolored or dull after a few years. Sealing the slab annually helps you protect the surface from serious stains or spills while ensuring a shiny clean finish for a long time.

    Avoid Putting Hot Pans Directly

    Quartzite is resistant to high temperatures, but if the pan, pot, or tray is too hot, it can damage the surface anyway. We advise using coasters to protect the surface to be on the safe side.

    Use Cutting Board

    Knives or other sharp objects can cause scratches on the surface. Though a quartzite surface is resistant to simple damages, it is still a good idea to use a cutting board whenever you are slicing or cutting.

    How to Clean Quartzite Countertops?

    Cleaning the quartzite countertop surface with a small amount of water and some mild dish detergent is a practical way to eliminate daily stains and spills. This simple cleaning routine will give the quartzite surface a long-lasting shine and luster.
