what brand of quartz is best for multifamily housing

There are many attributes to consider when deciding which quartz will best suit your multifamily projects. Some of those factors include color choice, budget, aesthetics, and safety attributes regarding your choice of quartz.

Green Guard Certified

It’s important to take into consideration the safety of using quartz in a multifamily project. Quartz that are green guard certified are part of the best selection to choose from because they are safer for everyone that encounters them. There are many building materials that can increase the number of VOCs, Volatile organic compounds, to be emitted into the air this includes using certain materials such as quartz. When a quartz is green guard certified this means that the quartz meets the indoor air quality requirements by producing low chemical and particle emissions. This is important to consider especially when individuals who have health issues, children or pets are exposed to these VOCs. By using green guard quartz, you create a safer environment that produces a healthier space for individuals who come in and out of your property.

Value Engineering

Quartz is also important if you are thinking about value engineering. Many individuals confuse value engineering to sacrificing the quality of the products you use to cut cost, but this is not the case. Value engineering is choosing a high-value product as an alternative to a high-cost product. Quartz is a great alternative to natural stone if you are trying to budget the cost of your multifamily project. You can get similar appearances to natural stone but without the extra maintenance and time needed to maintain natural stone.


When it comes to the aesthetic you are trying to create in a multifamily unit you want a design that can go with multiple styles so everyone can customize their own space. Quartz will have a more uniform look which is crucial when you are keeping the same base scheme for each unit.
