Granite Vs Quartz Counters: Which is Best?

The short answer is that it varies on factors like your budget, you aesthetic, and the purpose of your countertops, but there are unique advantages for both granite and quartz.

Granite Countertops

Granite is a natural stone that is mined and available in slabs that are then cut down to fit your countertops. The fact that it is natural gives it unique pros and cons in comparison to engineered stone products like quartz. Natural granite countertops are:

  • Durable
  • Hard
  • Heat and stain resistant
  • Naturally beautiful

But on the other hand, granite countertops also:

  • Can be more expensive than other materials
  • Need sealing and regular re-sealing
  • Require support for overhangs

Quartz Countertops

When referring to countertop materials, “quartz” is a man-made stone created from ground up natural quartz stone suspended in resin. This offers particular advantages over natural granite stone, including:

  • Huge variety of colors
  • Can be cheaper
  • Fully customizable

However, some drawbacks to quartz include:

  • Will warp and stain under hot pans
  • Can be less desirable to home buyers
