Benefits of Quartz Countertops
Engineered stone, or quartz, is a popular alternative to natural stone surfaces because of its durability and low maintenance. But other than the price being competitive with other stone surfaces, there are several other reasons why you should consider going with quartz kitchen or bath countertops:
- Extremely durable and more scratch-resistant than granite
- Resists staining better than granite, marble, and concrete (non-porous)
- Aesthetically pleasing and versatile in styles & colors
- Low maintenance and easy to clean
- Nontoxic and non-allergenic
- Heat resistant
“We had a beautiful Granite fire pit cut and installed by True Blue Surfaces. The staff was super friendly and helpful. My family loves the fire pit! They had a wide variety of granite and other stones to choose from. Will be using them again soon to replace my countertops. Highly recommended.”
“As a vendor I have watched these people from behind the scenes and hear how they talk to customers. This company is very family-oriented and respectful. I would personally say as one of their vendors to a customer that they would be a good choice for any project that they might need.”

What Are the Different Colors of Quartz?
Engineered quartz is the style chameleon of countertops. Whether you love modern or traditional, subtle tones or vibrant colors, honed or polished, flecked or patterned, quartz’s myriad options will have you covered. Engineered quartz is also easy to maintain, nontoxic and nonallergenic — there’s not much to dislike about this stunning man-made material.
Types of Quartz
Looking to install or upgrade to quartz countertops? While Quartz is one particular category of engineered stone, there are three different types of finishes you can choose for your kitchen or bath:
Honed Finish – A honed countertop finish will give your quartz countertops a flat, matte appearance. This finish is extremely smooth without the typical shine you’d see from quartz. Homeowners with kids or busy households like the honed finish because it hides the appearance of smudges, streaks, and fingerprints in the light.
Polished Finish – Quartz countertops with a polished finish is exactly what you’d expect — a high, glossy shine that makes your kitchen or bath countertops pop. While the polished finish gives your quartz countertops a stunning, traditional look, they do require more maintenance to keep them clean and free of smudges or streaks.
Sueded Finish – Similar to a honed finish, a sueded finish gives your quartz more depth and texture. Darker quartz countertops in your kitchen or bath tend to look better with the sueded finish. But just like the matte look you’ll find with honed countertops, sueded quartz countertops hide smudges and streaks, requiring less maintenance to keep them looking clean.
How to Care for Quartz Kitchen and Bath Countertops
Quartz kitchen and bath countertops are very easy to clean and maintain compared to granite or marble. But even though they don’t require regular sealing, there are still ways to maintain the natural beauty of your quartz after you’ve had your countertops professionally installed.
Here’s how to properly clean and polish your quartz countertops to keep them looking great:
- Use a soft microfiber cloth or non-abrasive sponge
- Clean using a small amount of liquid dish soap and warm water
- Avoid using bleach or any other harsh chemicals
- Do not use any rough sponges like a brillo or scouring pad
- Wipe up spills or splashes right away with a sponge or paper towel
Choosing the Best Quartz Fabricator and Installer
Your quartz countertops can and should be cut by a professional fabricator before they’re delivered to the job site. Then you will want to have them installed by a highly experienced and professional countertop installation company in Austin. It’s important to note that there are various concrete cutting and drilling companies, but they may not be experts in cutting quartz or other materials.
