Quartz or Granite?

When selecting the best countertops for your home, it can be difficult to decide between quartz and granite. WIlliams Fabrication in North Atlanta offers a great selection of both granite and quartz, and both options have their pros and cons. How do you decide which to get?

  • Granite is mined directly from the earth, and aside from being cut into manageable sizes and polished, it basically comes to you as it was mined. We offer granite in many beautiful colors and unique patterns, so you can pick the one that best suits your decor. Granite Countertops
  • Quartz is what is called engineered stone, which is to say that it is created by mixing ground quartz, a small quantity of polyester, and pigments. It is possible to manufacture quartz in almost any color or pattern. Many of our quartzes come with 25 year manufacturer guarantees! 

Again, there are pros and cons to both materials. Both granite and quartz are beautiful, strong, and resist bacteria–quartz was actually created for use in hospitals. Granite is very hard and heavy, and resists heat, scratches, and bacterial contamination. Quartz is lighter than granite and much easier to replace if you change your mind about it, because unlike granite, quartz is not sealed onto the counter. Granite lasts forever, which can be good or bad depending on how decisive you are! Quartz has less impact on the environment, especially in transportation.
