We aren’t going to pretend that granite and marble are not still king of the countertop world, but quartz is making great strides in kitchen design. In fact, according to designers with the National Kitchen and Bath Association, quartz surpassed granite and marble as the number 1 countertop used in their kitchen remodels. So what is quartz and why should I consider it for my Plano kitchen remodel? Pedigo Construction has the answers for you!
What is Quartz?
Quartz is an “engineered stone,” meaning you are getting the best of both worlds when choosing quartz. Quartz has crushed bits or chunks of national stone, mixed in with man-made materials like resin and coloring. Industry leaders in this category include Caesarstone, Silestone, Cambria, and Zodiaq.
Why Should I Consider Quartz for my Plano Kitchen Remodel?
Many have traditionally shyed away from quartz because of its un-stonelike appearance. Patterns tended to look too uniform, with not enough of a natural stone look. Not so anymore! Pedigo Construction is now seeing quartz with more natural veining, giving it the same allure as granite and marble. Furthermore, quartz is durable! Since it’s not a natural stone, there is no need to seal it, it repels stains, and it is impervious to scratches. Pricing for quartz is on par with granite and marble, with granite running about $75 per square foot, quartz about $80 per square foot, and marble about $85 per square foot. We are seeing homeowners who want low maintenance homes, and quartz fits the bill.
