Granite versus Quartz

One of the most costly per square foot home renovations occur in the kitchen. Since this is one of the largest investments that you will probably make in your home it is important to educate yourself on solid surfaces for your countertops. Solid surfaces are certainly not a budget-friendly alternative by any means. However, many homeowners have been swayed in recent years into choosing granite by the misrepresentation that it is maintenance-free, this is false. Granite can chip, crack and stain if not taken care of properly. One solution I suggest to those homeowners that are interested in solid surfaces is to consider quartz, an engineered solid surface.
