You can have quartz and granite countertops installed for about the same price, with quartz running just a bit higher in some cases. Quartz, being one of the most abundant minerals on the planet, is roughly 95% quartz, with a resin binder added in, along with color additives.
There are many different patterns and colors to choose from, and though they are crushed and blended, they still look as if the stone came straight from mother nature herself. Needing little to no maintenance at all, you’ll be happy to find that you’ll never have to seal your quartz countertops, and they will not stain.
Each granite slab countertop is completely unique, as they are mined just that way. The stone is 100% natural, with no additives of any kind, and because of this, there are no two sheets that are ever exactly alike. These are particularly great for large islands and cabinets, as you’ll never have to worry about having a seam running through the middle, which can be unsightly.
When installed and properly sealed by professionals, you won’t have to worry about granite countertops staining or soaking liquid into the material. We do suggest that you never use this material as a direct cutting board, as it can dull your knives quickly.
