Is Quartz Kitchen Countertops in San Antonio the Right Option

As you search for the perfect countertops for your home, it can seem like an endless and daunting task.  It seems like there are more options than ever, and each one has its own advantages and disadvantages.  At San Antonio Cabinets and Granite, we know that in the end it all comes down to personal preference, but we thought we might help you out by giving you some insight into the difference between quarts and granite countertops when it comes to designing your kitchen in San Antonio.

The first difference between granite and quarts is that granite is a completely natural stone that is mined, milled, and polished into the beautiful slabs and tiles that you see in many homes.  The benefit of this is that there are varied patterns of colors and designs.  The disadvantage of this is that there is no uniformity since each piece of granite is unique.  Quartz on the other hand is ground natural stone that has been combined with polymer resins making it an engineered stone, instead of a natural stone.

Quartz Countertops are more uniform in appearance, making it appear more consistent and even.  It is also easier to repair than granite.  If for some reason a quartz countertop happens to get a chip in it, replacing the broken piece is very simple.  With granite countertops, it can be difficult to match colors and patterns in order to make the repair.

Quartz countertops also come in a plethora of color options, and you can find virtually any color you’d like.  This means that no matter what colors you have in your home right now, you can find a quartz countertop that will match your aesthetic.

Quarts is also more environmentally friendly, and requires less maintenance than granite, making it ideal for many of our customers.  If you are considering a quartz kitchen countertop for your San Antonio Home, look no further than San Antonio Cabinets and Granite.  Please feel free to continue browsing our website for more information at or reach out to us for answers to any questions you may have.  We are happy to help.
