what is the difference between granite and quartz?
Simply put, Granite is a natural stone that is quarried from all over the world, while quartz is man made up of crushed up quartz and resin, but let us go into a little more detail:
- Granite is 100% natural, quarried from all over the world as big blocks of stone. After being quarried, they are cut into slabs and then polished.
- Because of how it comes out of the earth, it will range in colour as well as pattern. Looking at a small sample will not give you a 100% true idea of what your counter tops will look like. Because the material is natural, each time it comes out of the earth, colour and pattern will vary, but to most, this is part of its beauty.
- Granite is heat resistant. Hot pots and pans will not damage your granite counter tops.
- Granite is extremely durable, but should not be considered indestructible. It is a natural material, and if subjected to heavy abuse it can chip or break, but with regular day-to-day use and proper care and maintenance, your counter tops will last a lifetime.
- Quartz is a man made material, made up of crushed up quartz and resin, then manufactured into a variety of colours and patterns.
- Because it is man made, colour and pattern of each slab will be fairly consistent.
- Quartz is even harder than granite, but it is still important to be careful because it can chip when subjected to heavy abuse.
- Quartz is not a porous material, and therefore it does not require sealing at all.
- It is important to note that Quartz can discolour in the sun, so it is not to be used in exterior application.
- Quartz is not heat resistant. Be sure to always use a hot plate.
