surfaces are very durable and capable of lasting a very long time. They are both heat, scratch, chemical and stain resistant. Quartz surfaces are engineered from natural quartz while granite, in and of itself, is a natural stone. Both surfaces are very low maintenance. While granite is limited to the colors nature has produced, quartz is artificially colored throughout for a custom and unique look. While granite and quartz are in the upper tiers of cost, they will give you the longevity and durability associated with their price.
Cons: Quartz is a manufactured stone and it is hard to duplicate the veining and pattern look you get from genuine marble or granite. Quartz counters can discolor over time when exposed to direct sunlight. If you have a part of your counter that receives some of the UV rays from the sun while another part doesn’t, over time you will see a difference. Granite is porous, so staining is possible even with a quality sealer. Clean up spills right away.
