Has anyone used quartz for a counter top?........
My current kitchen remodel job is, of course, getting a new countertop. The owners chose to go with Costco's countertop program and they decided to go with quartz for the countertop material. They were shown (I was also present at the time) quartz, marble, granite and a solid surface material similar to Corian. The quartz gave them a top that they liked at a fair price, 21 linear feet of counter including a full height backsplash that wraps a window for roughly $4200.
Has anyone used quartz before? It's a material that I've never had installed in a house that I've done anywork for so I'm unfamiliar with it. I understand that it is a manufactured stone product as opposed to a natural stone like marble or granite, hence the lower cost. Is there any special things I should look/watch out for when they do the install? Anything different than with any other solid countertop?
Thanks very much.
