Frequently Asked Questions: Quartz or Granite
Why some countertops are more expensive than others?
There are different levels of countertop materials. The price of quartz or granite depends on its rarity, pattern, colors, and availability of that material. There are many manufacturers of quartz. Depending on the quality and color, the price point varies.
When it comes to granite countertops, the location of quarries plays an important part. There are quarries all over the world and it makes it possible to satisfy almost any taste and preference in color, but it might be harder to find certain colors and patterns, and of course, there is transportation cost involved. Some are found in nature more than others. There is also the labor involved required to extract the stones. So it all effects the price of the granite. So a higher price doesn’t always mean a higher quality of granite.
