Quartz Slabs

Quartz Countertops: Engineered Stone

Quartz countertops are man-made, offering hundreds of unique colors and patterns. Quartz is manufactured by combining about 93 percent crushed natural quartz and 7 percent resin, which is a bonding agent. The result is a very strong, consistent, stone-like quartz countertop.

Because it is engineered, there is no natural graining, and the color is even throughout the slab. Homeowners love its rich, luxurious look and finish, and they especially appreciate that it does not require sealant.

It has the same durability as granite and is even less likely to chip or crack. However, it is more expensive than granite, slightly less scratch-resistant, and more sensitive to heat than natural stone.

When you decide on quartz for your kitchen or bathroom countertops, there are so many options for colors that it might seem overwhelming. But at Benson Stone in Rockford, IL, natural and fabricated stone is our business. We fabricate our own stone in a building right next door to our showroom, and we can give you expert advice about what color might work best in your kitchen or bathroom.

We have a wide selection of colors and styles. Our salespeople know just about everything there is to know about quartz, and our professional installers will make it look just right in your home.

Quartz countertops maintenance

Quartz countertops are easy to maintain—all you need is dish soap and water, and you’re good to go! Quartz does not require sealant like natural stone does.

What to expect

You’ll start by walking into the Benson Stone showroom and looking around. If you’re planning to do a major kitchen or bathroom remodel, we will connect you with our kitchen and bath designers. If you just want new countertops, our salespeople will be able to help you decide which type of product you want (it’s helpful if you have a drawing of your space). They will also take you to the building next door to our showroom to show you the quartz slabs so you can get a better idea of color. Once you decide what you want, we’ll give you a quote, and if you want to move forward, we’ll send our expert installer to your home to measure the space. Then, we’ll work on fabricating your custom countertops and schedule a time for our installers to bring your dream to life.

Please visit the Benson Stone showroom to explore what types of stone countertops may be right for you.

Customer Reviews★★★★★

Our experience with Benson Stone could not have gone smoother! The creative, professional, and attentive staff of River, Eric, Matt, Juan, and Brad ordered, measured, and installed our new countertop, island top, and sink so effortlessly! Wish we could use more than 5 stars!Ellen

From the beginning consultation to the follow-through, everything was done professionally and in a friendly manner. The installation workmen were professional, hard-working, and a pleasure to deal with. The end result is beautiful. Your company is certainly a great example of workmanship of which the entire Rockford community can be proud.Susan G.

This was our second purchase from Benson. They did our granite for our kitchen in 2015. So when we wanted quartz for our utility room we went back. We were not disappointed. They were on time and in and out quickly. And they did another amazing job. We live in Wisconsin so this is a trip for us but worth every mile. Thank you so much!!Louise F.

A pleasant experience from beginning to end. The guys from the shop were very professional and polite and the installers were very friendly and did an awesome job. We visited your competitors along with the big box stores. Benson Stone was hands down the best bang for our buck. Thank you for good customer service and a truly great buying experience!Brad H.

These guys did a great job with a very quick turnaround time on our countertops. Install quality was top notch, nothing over budget. Very accurate estimates. Much larger selection than the big box stores and great communication throughout the process. Highly impressed and would recommend.Cody J.
