Quartz and Granite Countertops

When looking at countertops, your first comparison is quarts versus granite. On the market, granite is the superior seller, but quartz is quickly gaining ground. When comparing durability, while granite is very strong, quartz ranks higher on Moh’s Hardness Scale, which means that it is more resistant to chipping. When looking at the cost, slab granite can start around $60 per square foot, but prices exponentially rise from there. The cost of quartz ranges from $67 to $93 per square foot, installed.

In terms of maintenance, quartz does not need initial or continued sealing. However, granite needs to be sealed upon installation, and then again on a regular basis. Often, the most important deciding factor is aesthetics, as both quartz and granite countertops are very good, and nearly equal contenders.
