Quartz, Granit or Marble?

 

Stone Countertops: Granite, Quartz or Marble?

Your decision to choose one of the natural stone countertops is based on elements, specific to each customer.

Marble Countertops

Marble is a limestone that often has colored veins. This expensive stone is not heat resistant and is not guaranteed against scratches. Given its porous properties, it easily absorbs water and fat if not treated regularly. However, the colors and patterns of marine sediment formations are exceptional and will give your countertop a unique look.

This product is more fragile compared to granite or quartz. We do not recommend it for kitchen countertops but rather for bathrooms.

Granite Countertops

Granite will always be up to date; it will not go out of style! This natural stone is very affordable at the base. It is resistant to heat and scratches. Since it is a natural stone, it will contain veins and unique patterns. Each slice is unique!

Quartz Countertops

Quartz is less heat resistant because it is a synthetic component that contains about 7% of organic dyes and polyester resin. It is for this reason that it is more uniform in terms of patterns and colors. However, it can react to UV rays but requires no sealant maintenance unlike granite and marble. Given that quartz counters are manufactured, the cost of purchase is more expensive than granite.

Maintenance: In all cases, maintain with a mild soap and especially, never use abrasive products on stone surfaces. Marble and granite must be sealed annually.
