Quartz vs. Granite

Both quartz and granite offer an attractive appearance and durable, long lasting performance, however each has its own drawbacks and benefits. Which is better for your needs?

  1. Quartz is not only more durable than granite, it is also much more flexible, making it easier to work with and install.
  2. Granite countertops require the application of a sealant before use and again every 1 to 3 years throughout their lifetime. Quartz is nonporous, so it never requires sealing.
  3. Both materials are very strong and stain resistant, but not indestructible. Both can break or chip if abused. However, with proper care and maintenance both will provide reliable service for a lifetime.
  4. Quartz is vulnerable to UV rays. If all or part of your quartz countertop is regularly exposed to direct sunlight you may notice discolouration.
  5. Both quartz and granite are very heavy materials and should only be installed by a professional.
  6. Because granite is a natural rock it is impossible to avoid having noticeable seams after installation. Quartz countertops are composed of crushed quartz that has been mixed with resin in a ratio of 93% quartz and 7% resin. They are available in a wide range of sizes, patterns and colours, and seams are much less apparent than with granite.

Whether you prefer to use quartz or granite for your countertops, we’re sure you will be very pleased with the result. For more information or to request a free estimate at your home or business, please contact our office.
