Granite, quartz, and marble are 3 of the most common types of countertop materials, all of which we offer at Artisans of Stone. Our customers often ask us about the differences between these 3, so we’d thought we’d share some useful information with you about these popular countertop materials:

  • Granite countertops are some of the most durable countertops out there. They are heat and scratch resistant. In addition, they come in a number of colors and patterns, each of which is unique– no two granite countertops are exactly alike. One downside to granite countertops is that they must be sealed once a year.
  • Quartz countertops are engineered, which means that they are part natural quartz and part polyresin. Because they are engineered, they can be customized and come in a number of colors of patterns. In addition, because they are engineered, they do not need to be sealed yearly.
  • Marble countertops are the most luxurious countertops out there. Its timeless nature appeals to a number of customers. However, do keep in mind that marble countertops aren’t quite as durable as granite or quartz countertops and need to be resealed several times a year.

Whether you choose granite, quartz, or marble countertops, you really can’t go wrong. Each material offers its own unique advantages, and it’s really all about what personally appeals to you. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about these countertop materials.
