Quartz or Granite Countertops.


Just like many other decisions in life, we are faced with a choice when it comes to choosing between granite and quartz.  Which one should I use?

It may seem like a challenging and impossible choice.  Both come in a gorgeous selection of colors and patterns and both make an incredibly durable work surfaces. However, if you talk to the real experts, which are the fabricators and the installers, most will be quick to tell you Quartz is a better choice.  Our staff of experts at Stoneworld Seattle are always available to help you in deciding what is the best option for you. 

The below 2 images show granite on the left and quartz on the right. It is usually herd for the average person to distinguish the difference.

Accidents happen–dishes fall out of cabinets, kids drop things on countertops, adults aren’t much better.

If you drop a heavy pot on granite or whack a corner with a heavy ceramic bowl, it’s more likely to chip than quartz. The problem is that those chips are notoriously hard to repair. Both are fairly easy to fix and you can probably do it yourself.

It’s so simple to do, they sell granite and quartz repair kits at nearly every big box home improvement store.
