Natural stones are a great option when looking to instill a sense of elegance with your counter installation. This material represents one of the most durable options in the market and can last for decades with proper maintenance. If you’re thinking about integrating this option with your new counter, granite and quartz are two popular alternatives to choose from.
Granite is arguably one of the more popular options in the market when it comes to natural stone countertops because of its affordability compared to other alternatives. It’s available in multiple hues and textures, depending on the kind of granite implemented. They’re generally categorized into 3 grades, with level 1 representing the lowest grade and level 3 representing the highest.
Quartz is generally more expensive than granite, but also boasts higher levels of durability. Unlike granite, quartz is not 100% natural, but rather consists of approximately 95% natural stone and 5% polymer resins. Because of its engineered attributes, it’s available in multiple colors, with some of the more popular hues being black, white, gray, and beige.
Both granite and quartz countertops are easy to maintain, with their durability meaning you don’t have to go out of your way to offer additional protection. We offer a wide range of granite and quartz counter solutions, so call us today! Custom Royal Countertops and Tile, your preferred contractor!
