PROS AND CONS
What Countertops Are Right For Me?
Everyone’s lives are different, which mean we want to find the the countertop that makes the most sense for your personal daily life. All countertops differ in durability, care, looks and budget. Here are some pros and cons of granite, quartz and quartzite:
1. Granite Countertops – Granite is a natural surface so every slab does not look the same. This is why we like for you to come to our showroom and pick out exactly which slab you want!
- Adds value to your home
- Can last a lifetime if properly taken care of
- Heat resistant: you can set hot pots and pans directly on granite
- Easy to clean
- Durable surface
- Stain and scratch resistant
- Must be sealed
- Color options: since granite is natural, we are limited to the patterns and colors that mother nature provides
- Can be porous
- Risk of chipping: although granite is very durable, if a heavy object is dropped on the edge of your granite, it could chip
2. Quartz Countertops – Quartz itself is a natural mineral, but quartz countertops are engineered by man. Quartz countertops are combined with natural quartz and other natural materials as well as synthetic materials.
- Variety; since quartz is engineered by man, there is a wider variety to choose from than natural stones
- It looks very similar to granite
- Low maintenance; not need to seal
- Durable: won’t scratch, crack or chip
- Not heat resistant: you cannot set hot pots and pans directly on countertop
- Cannot use as outdoor countertop
3. Quartzite Countertops – Quartzite is a completely natural type of rock. It has natural veining patterns and blotches of gray and white, which makes is a highly sought out countertop.
- More resistant to scratches than quartz
- Appearance looks like marble but without the expensive price tag
- Durable surface
- Low Maintenance
- Highly resistant to UV rays
- Not heat resistant: you cannot set hot pots and pans directly on surface
- Can be damaged by sharp objects such as knives used directly on surface
