What Are the Differences Between Different Manufacturers of Quartz?

If you are looking for marble, quartz and granite countertops in Greensboro, High Point, or Winston-Salem, there are a few factors you should consider. When you shop for quartz countertops, you can select between several different manufacturers. Each manufacturer offers different colors and finishes, as well as different warranty policies, so it is important to choose the right quartz for your renovation project.

Each of these manufacturers offers unique product lines. Prices vary between the different manufacturers based on where the quartz is manufactured, the design or look of the quartz, as well as the warranty that comes with the quartz.

Higher-End Quartz Options
As with any product on the market, prices range from low to high. In the quartz world, certain manufacturers start at a higher price point. These manufacturers boast better quality products as well as better warranty coverage. Often, these manufacturers of quartz offer products that are better-suited for luxury projects. Our experts at Marble Granite World will answer your questions about the differences between quartz manufacturers.

Affordable Quartz Options
Several of the quartz manufacturers offer more affordable pricing. This is sometimes due to the fact that their quartz slabs are manufactured outside of the USA. Other times, it is due to the look and style of the colors they offer. As always, the more exotic or sought-after designs tend to have a higher price tag. At Marble Granite World, we offer several affordably-priced quartz manufacturers to select from. Keep in mind that the less expensive quartz manufacturers tend to not offer a warranty on their product.

No matter which quartz manufacturer you choose, the maintenance work is the same. In comparison to other materials, quartz requires very little maintenance. One of the most important things you can do to maintain your countertops is to place hot pads underneath hot dishes. Heat can damage quartz countertops, so you should never place hot items directly onto your countertops. Likewise, you should never cut anything directly on the countertop. Although quartz is scratch-resistant, we recommend avoiding the potential to damage or scuff your new countertops.
