Here at Michigan Quartz, we are determined to provide the best countertop solution in the Michigan area for our clients. We have, of course, aimed to supply you with products that are a great mix between quality, durability and affordability. When talking about kitchen countertops, these products usually fall into two distinct categories: quartz countertops and granite countertops.
Quartz countertops are just as strong as granite countertops, but usually provide more flexibility and are much easier to assemble. They are non-porous and require no separate sealing, which means they require little to no maintenance over the years. All things considered, they are heavier than their granite equivalent, which means you will require professional installation. One drawback of quartz countertops which we wish to mention here is that they discolor when placed in direct sunlight. If one part of the countertop receives UV rays over time and another one does not, you may notice a color difference between the two.
Granite countertops, first of all, have a non-uniform appearance. This can be a benefit as well as a drawback, because some people appreciate this non-standard look, while others do not. Granite countertops need to be sealed before they are used in order to be truly stain-resistant. While some argue that is it enough to have them sealed every 3 years, we strongly recommend that you do it yearly, because if the seal is compromised, your countertops can easily get stained. One last thing worth mentioning is the fact that no two countertops are the same, thus bear in mind that the stone you receive will be slightly different than the one you saw in the sample.
