Granite Countertops or Caesarstone Quartz Countertops?

When choosing materials for homebuilding or remodeling, many people automatically choose granite countertops without even giving a second thought to other materials. It is the current “standard” in kitchen design. True, granite is stain and scratch resistant and can last for more than two decades when properly maintained. But the same is true of Quartz countertops. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly alternative to popular but pricey granite countertops, Caesarstone Quartz countertop may be the perfect choice, and it’s one of our featured products at JRP Design & Remodel.

Benefits of Quartz Countertops

Quartz is a natural, non-porous material. Caesarstone quartz countertops are extremely durable, boasting four times the strength of granite and twice the impact resistance. Quartz never needs to be sealed or polished. In fact, quartz countertops are virtually maintenance free—routine cleaning is all that is needed to keep them looking great for years to come. Another benefit of choosing quartz countertops is that the material has a built-in anti-microbial inhibitor to prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew, making your kitchen or bathroom a healthier environment. Best of all, it’s priced more affordably than granite and will add an element of high style to your home without the high cost.

Color Consistency and Choices

Quartz countertops tend to have better color consistency than their granite counterparts as well. They are available in a variety of gem-like colors; some even mimic the look of granite. JRP Design & Remodel offers quartz countertops in a 40 different colors from color families including:

  • Fresh white
  • Shaded white
  • Light brown
  • Tan brown
  • Rich brown
  • Bold black
  • Deep blue and grey
  • Soft grey
  • Vivid green
  • Warm red

Whether you prefer a color like chocolate truffle to add some country charm to your kitchen or warm red to give your mid-century modern kitchen the pop of color it needs, you should have no problem finding the perfect color to complement your décor.

They will analyze the strength of your cabinetry to make sure it can safely hold the countertop and also have precision tools to make any necessary cuts to the material.
