Benefits Of Granite & Quartz Countertops

There are many benefits to both Granite & Quartz countertops; we like to arm our clients with all of the necessary info to make an informed decision when selecting for their project.

Granite is a 100% natural product, with any natural product comes variance & unpredictability.  We advise our clients to select their slabs prior to fabrication.  When looking at a small sample it is impossible to get a feel for the pattern movement; one half of the slab could potentially look entirely different from the other half! Granite is low-maintenance. Please talk to your fabricator in regard to the use of sealers.

Quartz is a combo of ground natural quartzite, bound with a polyester-resin compound.  Quartz is like a hybrid combination of a granite countertop & Corian solid surface; the main benefit is that it does not require any annual maintenance. This man-made product gives a more predictable coloration & you will find bold colours that are not typically found in nature.  Consider that quartz slabs are typically smaller & solid-coloured slabs can make seam matching a challenge.

Granite & quartz add instant luxury to your cabinetry. Come check out the options we have in-store & find out more about the pros & cons of each product to determine whether you are a quartz or granite customer.
