When it comes to picking your kitchen countertops, there are some important factors to consider like pricing, design aesthetic, durability, material, and maintenance required to upkeep your countertops. Discover some benefits of granite and quartz countertops in hopes to help you make the best decision for your home.

Benefits of Quartz Countertops

Benefits of Cambria Quartz Countertops
  • All Cambria quartz countertops do not require any sealing, polishing or reconditioning like granite typically does. In addition, quartz material resists stains from common food items such as wine, coffee and tea. So if you plan on using your countertops often for food preparation, quartz would be a great choice for you and your family.
  • Cambria surfaces are composed of 93% pure quartz, while granite typically only contains 40–60% quartz, along with more porous minerals. This makes for great durability and ease in creating beautiful countertop designs with unique edges.
  • Cambria is made for those who truly love to cook. Because it’s nonporous and nonabsorbent, it won’t draw in moisture from raw or leftover food, which can harbor harmful bacteria. It gives off zero emissions, and no radon.

Benefits of Granite Countertops

  • Composed of natural rock with a luminous surface.
  • The texture, color and flow of rock is unique and one-of-a-kind.
  • Granite can add value to your kitchen remodeling project and does not depreciate over time.
  • Granite is family friendly in the sense that it is a very sturdy material. It does not easily chip or break, so it’s a welcoming material for everyone who cooks in the kitchen.
  • Although it’s not ideal if granite breaks, the good news is that it is easily repairable.
