Quartz, which often copies granite or marble, is a mix of 90% mineral and 10% epoxy, offering beauty and toughness in a vast variety of color and patterns. It’s also one of the hardest materials in the world, making it a perfect choice for kitchens. Some considerate characteristics of quartz countertops are: superior stain and scratch resistance, maintenance-free and colors and patterns.
Quartz countertops are one of the most beautiful and durable options for home design and is often used in kitchen countertops. Like other minerals, quartz is quarried from mines and then cleaned before being readied for industrial use. When considering stone and laminate materials for countertops, engineered quartz combines the best of worlds to produce a strong, stylish and lasting finish.
The average cost to install quartz countertops ranges anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 for professional installation. For many homeowners, choosing a countertop material comes down to deciding between quartz and granite. Colour options and overall cost are the top considerations when buying a countertop.
Manufactured quartz is now the leading countertop material according to the National Kitchen and Bath Association. Quartz countertop has many advantages over granite, including that it’s resistant to stains and stands up to acidic foods. In most cases you’ll end up paying more for granite unless you find something in the price range that you love.
It’s hard to believe what a difference a quartz or granite countertop can make when it comes to selling a home. Adding a stone countertop to your home increases the value of your house. While there are a lot of renovations and fixtures you can do that will not contribute to the overall home’s value, a good stone countertop alone will raise the price value.
