Granite Vs Quartz

Allot of clients ask what is better granite or quartz?

I believe the answer applies to what the clients desire to achieve design or usage?

From a design perspective allot of granite type counter tops can bring color and contrast to enhance beauty of kitchen counter island or bar area.

Over the last couple years our install ratio from granite installs to more quartz installs is increasing. Every year the number of granite counter removal for new quartz replacement follows the same increasing scale. This is the sign of trend movement and the desire for a better product to serve functionally and client usage needs. When our clients start the design process we listen to the needs and preference to achieve desired design result. Product knowledge paired with insight for design is what sets Long Arm Studio apart from others. Quality can only be achieved with the right planning and products.t quartz slab manufactures. Most dense granite material is of a dark pallet and less natural veining. Some granite selections that present with allot of natural veining and translucent sections can be fragile and require rod inserts to strengthen areas. Translucent patchy areas tend to be compressed soil materials from million years of pressure. This can create natural overwhelming beauty and pull an overall kitchen design together. With the latest technology to apply surface texture or matte finishes to either granite or quartz a client has new options to achieve there design. Quartz manufactures have started to keep pace with new imitating natural design concepts to keep with mother nature. Consistent color surfaces was mostly available in solid surface format or limestone product until quartz manufactures developed technology. Solid surface and limestone material have proven to mark and fade due to its soft nature. Modern design concepts for kitchens marry well with consistent color tone counters and taking to next level with texture or matte finish can be done with all quartz selections. Overall usage and functionality for kitchen counter top a quartz selection in my opinion wins. For natural design elements and uniqueness a granite stone selection wins. As we move forward into the future we will see more quartz selections to imitate that unique natural element found in natural stone selections. In my opinion with the last ten years being the research and development for quartz manufactures we have reached a point were quartz is more affordable per square foot and color options available.
