Concrete can be used in copious applications using a variety of techniques. It is durable enough to last for decades to come, strong enough to be used in structural applications, and malleable (before cured) to be molded to almost any form or shape. It can be used in flooring, wall, and ceiling applications, or it can be employed to construct statues and furniture. It can be made to look industrial and cold as well as traditional and warm. With so many applications, it is nearly safe to say that concrete can be used to make almost anything, and countertops are no exception.
Quartz Countertops are known to be resistant to permanent stains. Use quartz countertops if you know there would be a lot of juice, wine and sugar related stains. Quartz is the fourth hardest mineral in nature making it fit for use in natural stone countertops. It is a bit expensive though and will cause a dent in your wallet! Marble countertops are the softest version of natural stone countertops. They can be stained or soiled easily. Keep your marble countertops away from any oil or juice stain! Frequent polishing and sealing of the marble countertops though can keep away any permanent staining. It must be noted that marble countertops cannot withstand permanent stains or scratches.
Soapstone countertops are most popular of the countertops and have been used for centuries. Soapstone is highly immune to acidic or alkaline materials and hence can be used in a variety of fixtures. People have used soapstone as preferred countertops in sculptures, goblets, fireplaces and tabletops. Most natural stone countertops, as can be seen are naturally resistant to staining and scratching in varying degrees. The importance of regular sealing and polishing though cannot be undermined. Regular sealing of the natural stone countertops will ensure that the resistance properties of the natural stone countertop remain with it forever. Bottom-line, natural countertops are resistant to scratch and stain. The important questions that challenge the resistance of these countertops are - 1) How permanent is the scratch? And 2) What is the degree of the scratch? Expect to be disappointed if you have your quartz countertop subjected to heavy scratches all the time. You must seal and polish your countertops regularly to ensure they retain their resistance power against scratching and staining.
