Granite Vs. Quartz

Granite



Manufacturing

Granite: Mined from stone

Quartz: Man-made from crushed quartz. Pigments are usually added for coloration and resin is used to bind everything together.


Appearance

Granite: Colors and designs vary based on where the stone was mined from. Colors range from earthy tones to more wild blues, greens, and reds.

Quartz: Comes in wider range of colors and variations.


Durability

Granite: More porous and can suck up liquids which hold infectious bacteria and viruses. Each slab of granite is different and can have imperfections that can lead to it chipping or cracking.


Quartz: The resin that is used for the making of quartz make it non-pourus and more stain resistant. Because the quartz particles are binded it leaves a smooth surface less likely to crack.




Marble





Maintenance

Granite: countertops routine sealing at least once a year.


Quartz: Comes pre-sealed and doesn't require being resealed ever.


Cost

Granite: Average $80 - $175 per square foot installed


Quartz: Average $80-$140 Per square foot installed
