Quartzite: Light and Classy
It’s hard to go wrong with quartzite countertops, backsplashes, wall veneers and flooring. Typically white or gray with a variety of natural accent colors, it brightens any room. This classy look can be relatively easy to maintain as well, but only with the proper sealant and care.
Why Quartzite Needs Maintenance
When sandstone contains a high composition of quartz, it becomes both uniquely beautiful and highly durable. The resulting quartzite has the potential to last indefinitely. But without sealing it and maintaining that seal, quartzite is just as susceptible as other natural stone to these threats:
Acid. Quartzite can contain calcium carbonate, which reacts with acidic substances like vinegar and soft drinks to chemically etch the surface.
Liquids. Oils and colorful liquids can get into natural fissures and stain the surface, eventually forming an unattractive green or brown film (called a patina).
Evaporation. When water gets into the stone and then evaporates, it leaves a white residue behind that degrades the natural color of quartzite.
The good news is that most damage to quartzite is treatable with professional cleaning, and virtually all of this is preventable with proper sealant maintenance.

Quartzite Tile Repair Services
The elegance quartzite tiles add to kitchen and bath spaces is lost as they shift due to normal wear over time. We turn back the clock by realigning, leveling out and sealing loose tiles.
