5 Advantages of Granite Countertops

Here we will list the 5 main advantages of Granite Countertops over Quartz Countertops. This information is based on our study of the custom countertop market since 2009. We have been marketing for custom Stone fabricators all over the United states and based on our study of who and where people buy what materials for countertops. We find that Granite is the prefered material in much of the country.

5 Advantages of Granite Countertops

  1. Heat resistant. Because it was formed with great heat and pressure it is able to withstand great heat. This makes the material perfect for kitchen applications.
  2. Every stone is Unique and your kitchen is the only one with your exact stone. No 2 kitchens will be exactly the same.
  3. The beauty of natural stone is un matched by man made materials.
  4. This will signifigantly increase the perceived value of your home.
  5. Seams can be well hidden but a good fabricator.
  6. Starting Price is Less than Quartz Countertops

Here is a chart showing areas of the country that search more for quartz countertops (Red) over granite countertops(blue).

While quartz is gaining in popularity when it comes to actually installing material in the home granite is more commonly purchased. Quartz due to its more uniform appearence tends to be better suited for commercial applications. These commercial applications are more commonly designed and redesigned and we beleive that slants the results giving quartz a bit of an inflated % of the market.
