Quartzite Countertops

Quartzite is a natural stone that forms when sandstone is exposed to heat, pressure and time. The result is a very beautiful and durable stone that makes great countertops. A majority of quartzite countertops are in the white to gray range; however, other colors do exist. In many cases, there is beautiful veining, which can give the quartzite a marble look.

Unlike other natural stones, quartzite countertops are limited to a single type of edge—a flat edge with a quarter-inch rounded top.

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 on what type of countertops 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 quartzite, and our professional installers will make it look just right in your home. 

Quartzite countertops maintenance

Quartzite countertops require sealant to keep water from penetrating the stone. When you buy quartzite countertops at Benson Stone, we apply a 15-year sealant before bringing the product into your home. When you need to reapply the sealant, simply use a cloth to apply a thin amount, wait 20 minutes, then add another thin coat. To maintain the life of a sealer, do not use aggressive cleaners on your countertops. A small amount of dish soap and water will work very well to keep your countertops clean and looking good.

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 quartzite 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.

Customer Reviews★★★★★

I went with Benson Stone for Quartzite countertops along with having several pieces of quartzite around our tub and shower unit. We had a difficult layouts and they spent the time needed to get all the dimensions for everything to fit correctly. Everything looks beautiful and their install crew did an amazing job. Would definitely recommend.Chad C.

I am in love with the breakfast bar I had installed by Benson Stone. I was able to find the perfect remnant in their slab warehouse, I gave my ideas to the team on what I wanted and then was offered suggestions for improvements. It turned out better than expected! I highly recommend Benson Stone!Scott E.

My wife and I moved to a home in February and we had to remodel two full bathrooms. We are so happy because of the fine service and quality countertops we received from Benson!Joe M.

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.

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.

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
