Pros & Cons: Quartz, Marble, & Granite Countertops January 25, 2017

Anchorage, Anchorage County
Pros & Cons: Quartz, Marble, & Granite Countertops , Anchorage, Alaska

Variety awaits you when it comes to choosing countertops for your kitchen, but there are other factors to consider. The experts at Rino’s Tile & Stone in Anchorage, AK, are happy to share their knowledge about quartz, marble, and granite countertops to help you make the right selection for your kitchen remodeling or upgrading project.

Before you decide on marble, quartz, or granite countertops for your kitchen, consider the pros and cons of each:

  • Marble Countertops: A traditional countertop surface material, marble offers elegant beauty and uniqueness because every slab is different. On the downside, marble countertops are susceptible to staining, scratches, cuts, nicks, and damage from hot pans.
  • granite countertopsQuartz Countertops: Quartz countertops give you exciting patterns and colors that resemble marble and granite countertops without being prone to heat, stain, and scratch damage like marble surfaces. However, it’s wise to install quartz countertops that have rounded edges to prevent chipped corners that require professional repairs.
  • Granite Countertops: Like marble, granite occurs naturally, so no two slabs are alike. Unlike marble, though, granite countertops are hard surfaces that resist scratching, cuts, and heat damage. Granite is porous, but when its finish is sealed properly, stains won’t penetrate it. Periodic resealing is required to maintain stain protection. A professional must repair granite countertop corners and edges when they chip, as with quartz.
