Quartz Master LLC® is the largest scaled supplier of artificial stone (also called engineered stone or compound stone) in North America. Engineered stone products are gaining in popularity and are often preferred over granite products because engineered stone requires less maintenance and has better resistance to stains and bacterial contamination. Quartz, unlike granite, cannot be permanently stained by cooking oils or grease and is resistant to the effects of harmful acids found in common household products. Granite is also subject to unpredictable variations in color or pattern between slabs, which makes it difficult to match counter-top sections, engineered stone is uniform in color, pattern, and texture.
