Roann considers the benefits of using quartz worktops

Scott Wharton, operations director at Roann, considers the benefits of using quartz worktops in residential developments.

Known for their durability, versatility and timeless looks, quartz worktops offer a range of benefits that make them a good choice for any development. While the initial investment may be higher than some alternative materials, the long-term benefits and the value added to any property make quartz worktops a rewarding choice.

They are engineered using a combination of natural quartz crystal and resin and exhibit great resilience. This quality ensures that they can withstand the rigours of daily use, resisting stains, scratches and chips.

Unlike natural stones, quartz worktops are non-porous. This means that they do not absorb liquid or stains and are resistant to bacteria or other micro-organisms from spills. This makes quartz the obvious choice for busy and active households. Generally speaking, soap and water or a mild detergent are all that’s necessary to keep the worktops clean.

Another bonus of installing a quartz worktop is that there is no need for time-consuming and often expensive sealing that some natural stone worktops require. This allows efficient project completion on time and within budget, which is always a bonus.

Quartz worktops are available in an extensive range of designs, colours and finishes. As the material is manmade, the design can be tailored to suit any interior. The consistency in colour and pattern across the entire surface will ensure a uniform and cohesive look.

With the appearance and feel of natural quartz, Compac is a technological quartz that has high heat resistance and remarkable quality. It’s available in an extensive range of colours, designs, sizes, thickness and ornamentations. It’s ideal for kitchen worktops that are subject to extensive use.

Builders committed to sustainability may choose to install a quartz worktop as many of these surfaces are produced using recycled materials. This aligns with corporate social responsibility practices and contributes to a reduced carbon footprint.

The long-term benefits of quartz worktops include adding value to a home, as they are designed to stand the test of time. Using this superior material can enhance the marketability and resale value of homes, a crucial selling point for potential buyers.

Many producers also provide warranties of up to 25 years with their worktops, an assurance of quality and longevity can provide peace of mind to house builders and potential house buyers.

Whether house builders are renovating an existing property or developing a new one, quartz should be considered as the surface material of choice due to its attractive and superior qualities.
