For so long, granite has been the gold standard for countertops. Homeowners everywhere have viewed granite as the premium material for counters. However, quartz is quickly gaining popularity and prestige in kitchen design.
Quartz is manufactured using 93% quartz and 7% resin. Just like other stone materials, it is durable and strong. With granite, the veining of the stone is naturally occuring and can often look irregular. Since quartz is manufactured, the result is a more uniform pattern that is very appealing to homeowners. Quartz is also maintenance-free and does not need to be resealed annually, as granite does. Both materials are also comparable in cost.
