Pros and Cons of Quartzite Countertops
Quartzite is a type of material typically used for countertops and other types of stone surfaces. It’s a natural stone that can be quarried from several different locations across the globe.
It’s a common option for those looking to find countertops in the kitchen or bathroom because it has a nice finish, is durable, and is relatively affordable.
Quartzite offers many benefits similar to granite but without drawbacks such as cracking and discoloration over time and is available in a variety of colors, so it’s great for design flexibility.
