Comparing the Costs of Countertops

Quartz surfaces combine the power and beauty of nature with the advanced technology provided by high quality pigments and resins for a material that offers optimum form and function. Quartz is composed of 93% of the hardest minerals on earth and can withstand twice the impact of natural stone while also being more flexible, completely non-porous and absolutely maintenance free. So what is the price of a countertop surface that sounds almost too good to be true? Let's explore this by comparing the cost of Quartz to the cost of granite.

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.

Installed Quartz countertops can range from $60 to $100 per square foot. This smaller price range is due to the consistent, high-quality manufacturing process used to produce Quartz surfaces. No matter which price tag, every Quartz surface comes with a lifetime residential warranty or a ten-year commercial warranty. High quality installation is additionally ensured by this warranty with the use of a Quartz Certified Fabricator. The difference in cost from one Quartz 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 Quartz's consistent quality as well as consistent coloring, 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 Quartz countertops.
