Quartz Countertops in The Villages are Eco-Friendly and Unique

by | Jan 20, 2020 | Home Improveme

Quartz countertops are something very different from marble or granite; quartz countertops are not solid stone, but an engineered stone product. This unique and attractive material is made from ground stone particles bound together with plastic resins. It’s strong, easy to clean and eco-friendly.

How Quartz Countertops are Made

Ten-percent of a quartz countertop is comprised of the binding cement-based or polymeric binder. The other 90 percent is made of crushed granite, marble, and natural stone “waste” from quarries. Likewise, recycled materials such as glass, ceramic, silica, bits of metal and even mirrors can be added to the mix. And yes, sometimes actual quartz is used. All of this eclectic material is mixed and bound together to give it the look and feel of natural stone. The materials can be mixed to create a multitude of colors and textures to compliment any home.

Quartz Countertops are Eco-Friendly

As you can see, a lot of what otherwise would be “waste” filling our landfills can be recycled to make a beautiful and functional countertop for your home. In fact, quartz countertop installation in The Villages is one of the most popular remodeling requests contractors get.

The stone and other materials used to make quartz countertops are all recycled waste by-products. No natural stone has been extracted with destructive quarrying techniques. Even the resins used are pretty natural, made from a combination of both artificial and organic resins made from vegetable oils.
