Compare Stone Types

Granite vs Quartz

Granite is 100% natural and Granite slabs are sliced from the quarries. They are cut to size and honed down until they get smooth. Since Granite is Natural material, it is easy to chip, stain, and require a significant amount of maintenance.

Quartz is 93% crushed quartz mixed with 7% resin binder and color additives. They can be manufactured in different patterns and colors. Quartz does not need initial or continued sealing since they are stain-resistance but still get chipped.

Granite vs Marble

Both marble and granite are products of Nature, beautiful and each one does have its own attributes. Their surfaces are easy to chip and stain and require a significant amount of maintenance.

However, granite is more durable than marble and less prone to stains and scratching. Because of that granite is often found in kitchens, while marble is more in other areas, like bathrooms.

Quartz

Quartz countertops are perfect for the customer seeking low-maintenance and durability. Quartz is 93% crushed quartz mixed with 7% resin binder and color additives.

They can be manufactured in different patterns and colors, crafted to mimics the beauty and design of natural stones such as granite and marble. Quartz does not need initial or continued sealing since they are stain-resistance but still get chipped.
