Should you buy Quartz or Granite Countertops?

You are likely wondering about the pros and cons of quartz (engineered quartz countertops) vs granite countertops.

I will share with you some of the reasons given by homeowners who chose natural granite over quartz.

Nothing Beats The Natural Material: This is the approach of homeowners who choose solid wood flooring instead of engineered wood or laminate. This is the reason to select granite, slate, limestone and other natural stones over quartz countertops.

Some providers of quartz say that quartz is up to 93% natural because of the content of crushed quartz. Indeed, it is true, however the fact that quartz is heavily process and contains 7% resin and pigment takes away the natural feel and it’s a no, no for some homeowners. Quartz countertops are easy to keep clean with milder cleaners.

Quartz Countertops are scratch resistant, heat proof, stain resistant and it has a more consistent pattern from one slab to the other. Quartz countertops are also more durable than granite.

It is important to consider that the look of a natural stone (granite and other natural surfaces) will always be unique, with slight change in color and grains. There never will be two identical pieces.

Granite is heat proof and it’s low maintenance product, some granite only requires sealing every 3 to 5 years. Granite is also bacteria resistant, granite resist most substances that can stain, such tea, wine or coffee. Granite can withstand most of house cleaners, and its durability makes it a lifetime investment. However, Granite can crack and chip more readily that engineered stone.

If you prefer a natural stone make the commitment to seal it yourself or have it sealed by a processional on a regular basis, clean stains immediately. Don’t leave wet or dirty dishes on countertop for long periods of time.

As per Quartz Countertops( Engineered Stone) there as some benefits that make it more appealing to some home owners, quartz countertops are easy to keep Germ – Free:

The fact that quartz is an engineered product it makes it non porous. Granite slate and other natural stones do have pores and tiny capillaries within the minerals, those natural structures wick up liquid, which could cause staining if not cleaned promptly.

If cleanliness is your main concern, quartz countertops are a better choice. You can have the same germ free result from natural stones if you sealed well, but if sealant breaks down, your countertop could let bacteria grow.
