Comparing the Costs of ColorQuartz and Granite

 The combination of high quality and consistency helps keep the price of ColorQuartz a bit under that of granite

If you’re researching countertops and surfacing options, you’ve very likely heard of quartz, the engineered surface that’s nearly indestructible. Quartz surfaces can withstand twice the impact of natural stone and it’s also more flexible, completely non-porous, and absolutely maintenance-free. One of the most asked questions about quartz is regarding the cost. Homeowners want to know: How does a surface that sounds almost too good to be true stack up in price with natural stone? 

Since granite is, and has been for some time, the most popular natural stone choice, lets use it as a comparison. 

Installed granite countertops can range from $40 to $150 per square foot. This wide price range is because the final cost of granite countertops will depend on several factors including the variation, quality and availability of the granite as well as the individual costs of the fabricator and installer. Choosing your granite manufacturer and fabricator requires careful consideration to ensure you are receiving the desired level of quality in both the actual stone slab and the installation. 

Here at Marble & Granite, Inc., our quartz surface of choice is ColorQuartz. In fact, we serve as the exclusive ColorQuartz distributor for the Northeast, covering the country from Maine through New York as well as Southern Canada. We stock 44 shades of ColorQuartz at our showrooms in Westwood, MA, Milford, CT, and Albany, NY. Designed in California since 2008, ColorQuartz is the world’s leading producer of quartz surfaces, making quartz surfacing available to design-inspired spaces around the world. 

Installed ColorQuartz countertops can range from $50 to $90 per square foot. This smaller price range is due to the consistent, high-quality manufacturing process used to produce ColorQuartz surfaces. And throughout the ColorQuartz price range, every surface comes with a lifetime residential warranty or a ten-year commercial warranty. The difference in cost from one ColorQuartz slab to another purely depends on the color and variation that is chosen. 

As we all know, "cost" can refer to more than simply the cash we pay during a remodeling project. With the consistent quality as well as consistent coloring of ColorQuartz, consumers always know exactly what they are getting. No surprises means no stress. 

While some will always opt for the naturally unique look of granite countertops, others will always side with the guaranteed aesthetics, quality and performance of ColorQuartz countertops.
