When your kitchen upgrade includes changing countertops the most coveted materials are quartz and granite. It’s important that you take into consideration that changing countertops will cost a considerable amount of money, so if your budget is small you may just want to resurface the cabinets. Also, since granite and quartz are thick materials it may interfere with the pre-existing pipes used for gas and water. There may need to be changes made to the pipes.
Granite prices start around $42 a square foot and greatly vary. Quartz countertops come in around $48-$68 per square foot.
Quartz- This material is just as strong as granite, but has the added characteristic of being more flexible and easier to handle. Since it is a man made material quartz offers a uniform finish that can be recreated unlike the naturally occurring granite. Quartz does not require a sealant and is known for requiring low maintenance. Quartz is heavier than granite and requires experts to install. Rest assured, UsaKitchen’s staff is made up of trained professionals that have experience in dealing with quartz.
Granite- The overall appearance of granite, considering it comes from the earth, is not uniform. Some customers like this look, while others like things to look extremely uniform. Before you use your granite countertop it needs to be sealed. It is safest to reseal the countertop every year, which UsaKitchen can help you with. With proper care, this type of countertop will last you a lifetime.
