A quartz kitchen counter is usually made up of 93 percent minerals and 7 percent resin, which holds the minerals in place. Some quartz contains more resin and less raw material, making the price more affordable, but at the expense of quality. The truth is that a quartz countertop that contains a lot of resin has a very low resistance to heat and is also more prone to scratching. Cuisines Verdun recommends the ratio of 93 percent minerals to 7 percent resin, used in the top three brands of quartz countertops: Caesarstone, which comes from Israel or Canada, Silestone, originating from Spain, and Cambria, from the United States. Each of these companies offers a wide variety of colors and designs to blend perfectly with any style of kitchen, from classic to contemporary.
