Quartz Countertops

Our quartz countertops at Ray’s Countertop Shop, Inc. have a variety of benefits that set this beautiful material aside from any other mineral on the market. Quartz countertops are made with natural material and resin that is held together under extreme environments to give countertops the stability and hardness needed to last for decades. Not only do you not need to seal our quartz countertops, but they come in a variety of consistent color choices, are low maintenance, and are fairly stain resistant. We recommend the following sinks for our quartz countertops in Taylorville, IL.


A top-mount sink is a perfect addition to your quartz countertops due to the simplicity involved in the installation, they are generally more affordable, and can withstand any household environment without fail. Our top mount sinks include a lip that hangs over the countertop for extra protection and water damage prevention.


Under-mount sinks are one of the most attractive options for homeowners looking for a seamless sink installation. Our under-mount sinks create clean lines in the kitchen, give you slightly more counter space, and provide easy clean-up after a messy meal. For extra space and visual appeal, our under-mount sinks are a great fit for your quartz countertops. We also currently offer a free promo that includes a stainless-steel under-mount sink for countertop orders over 45 square feet.
