Why choose a quartz kitchen worktop?
If you’re planning a new kitchen or you’ve decided to take the plunge and upgrade your current one we highly recommend you consider a quartz kitchen worktop.
Unlike other stone types which we supply including granite, quartz kitchen worktops are not 100 per cent natural. Instead, they are created using natural quartz stone which is then refined and mixed with a synthetic polymer and compressed into a solid piece of material which can then be refined by our expert craftsmen.
If you’re not sure whether quartz is the right material for you, here are some of the top reasons we love quartz kitchen worktops and why our customers do too.
Quartz is hygienic
Due to quartz being a non-porous material it means that it is easy to clean and maintain than some other materials that may be used as kitchen worktops.
Many spills can be cleaned simply by wiping away, while regular maintenance can be carried out by using basic detergent and warm soapy water.
Quartz can be given the Azerocare and Azerobact treatment
As the exclusive supplier of Antolini quartz in the North West we can provide our customers with access to both Azerocare and Azerobact treated quartz.
Azerocare is a revolutionary treatment that can be applied to quartz and other natural stone that provides full protection from etching and staining that can be caused by acid-based foods.
It also provides protection from oil, fat and grease, making it perfect for any kitchen.
Azerobact is another treatment exclusive to Antolini quartz and supplied by our team here at Grantech.
This treatment works by creating an anti-bacterial coating on your quartz worktop, making it more difficult for bacteria to form on your quartz surface, making it one of the most hygienic countertop options available.

Quartz kitchen worktops look great
By coupling natural beauty with synthetic properties, quartz has the potential to create unique styles, finishes and textures.
Due to the nature of natural stone such as granite having unique tones, patterns, hues and variations which can vary wildly from one piece of stone to another it is impossible to get a uniform and identical kitchen countertop.
Quartz on the other hand is manufactured using synthetic materials in conjunction with natural quartz allowing more control, which helps achieve a more consistent finish across all your countertops.
Quartz kitchen worktops are durable
When you choose your new kitchen worktops you want to be assured that they will last.
Our customers feel the same and it’s why so many of them have opted to use quartz as their chosen stone.
Quartz worktops are known for being hard and durable and can withstand many kitchen mishaps depending on their severity including impact damage from dropped pans, surface damage from spillages and staining and they are also heat resistant to a degree.
Quartz worktops are also highly scratch resistant and have a high level of heat resistance.
When you speak to a member of our team we will be able to outline the specific properties of your chosen quartz further to ensure they meet your requirements.
