Quartzite Countertops & Vanity in Richmond Hill, York Region & Toronto Area

Quartzite is a non-foliated metamorphic rock composed almost entirely of quartz. It forms when a quartz-rich sandstone is altered by the heat, pressure, and chemical activity of metamorphism. Recrystallize the sand grains and the silica cement that interlocking quartz grains structure makes it a hard, tough, durable rock. It is usually white to gray in color. Some are stained by iron can be pink, red, or purple. Other impurities can cause it to be yellow, orange, brown, green, or blue.
Due to the porous nature of Quartzite, your countertops MUST be sealed, ideally once a year.HY Stone offers decades long sealants from various trusted brands. Quartzite is the most durable stone, we offer in comparison to Granite and Marble, which is why it’s commonly used for countertops. The stone does not etch, and stands up against acidity, unlike Marble.

Advantages of Quartzite Kitchen Countertop & Bathroom Vanity

Quartzite Countertop has Better Durability

A major benefit of quartzite is that it is stronger than both granite and quartz. Quartzite beats these materials on the durability scale because it’s formed by using processes that increase the material’s strength. Quartzite is also denser and less porous than granite in particular, so it’s especially in demand for anyone wanting a scalable kitchen countertop.

Quartzite Countertop Scratch Resistance

Although quartzite is often confused with quartz, the two couldn’t be more different — particular when it comes to scratch resistance. Quartzite is much more scratch-resistant than quartz is, which is why it is such a popular option for the kitchen environment.

Quartzite Countertop Requires Less Maintenance

The fact that quartzite countertops require less maintenance than quartz is another reason why many cooks love them. With quartzite, you don’t have to worry about constantly cleaning your countertop. All you have to do is clean it after you use it or spill something on it, just as you would any other countertop surface.
When it comes to cleaning your countertop, just a damp rag and a dish soap that is pH balanced will do. However, you should reseal your countertop once or twice a year, as the right seal will keep stains from penetrating the stone. All natural stones share this weakness, but when they are sealed properly, cleanup couldn’t be easier.
