Stone and Quartz Countertops
Please find the information below detailing some of the benefits and differences between stone and quartz.
Quartz countertops combine the style and beauty of natural stone, without the worry and maintenance. Quartz is non-porous and scratch-resistant so it will stand up to tomatoes, oil, wine, coffee, and anything else you subject it to. If you’re looking for durability and ease of care, Quartz is an excellent choice.
Marble countertops bring a classic, timeless look to your home. However, marble is also softer and more porous than other materials which means it’s easily stained and etched by oils and citric acid. For those who don’t mind the natural wear and patina that comes with having marble, it’s a wonderful option.
Granite countertops score a 7 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, making it one of the most durable surfaces. While you can cut on granite, it isn’t recommended. Doing so will dull your knives and can sometimes leave behind a metal residue that can be difficult to remove. In general, darker granites are very dense and less porous while lighter granites are more porous. When properly sealed, granite is stain resistant.
Quartzite countertops have the look of marble but are much more durable. Since it’s a harder stone, it’s resistant to scratching, heat, water, and acids that cause etching.
