Granite
vs
Man Made Quartz
vs
Quartzite

 Every day we are asked this question by customers who are confused

 

HERE IS THE TRUTH

 

Going back approximately 10 years --- The man-made quartz industry was producing ugly – mundane speckled quartz products – some with little red and green specks  The best-looking quartz was a two-tone brown mixture. They could not sell this ugly product --- when compared to granite

 

So in order to create sales, they created a sales campaign based on FEAR of natural stone  They created a VERY SUCCESSFUL sales program claiming that granite and other natural stone will stain chip and will require continuous care and maintenance   ---- and  --- Man-made quartz will not stain – chip or require and care or maintenance. --- and therefore ---- it is a better countertop product choice.

THEY DID A GOOD JOB CREATING FEAR

 

Then a funny thing happened --- About 4 years ago HGTV started the white/gray look for kitchens and countertops and the White Marble look was promoted.

Cararra Marble ---- Statuary Marble  --- Calcutta Marble – Arabesescato Marble

But ( as you probably know ) marble is a softer more porous natural stone

 

So the man-made quartz industry jumped on the marble color popularity and started making “marble–look–alike “ quartz colors and WAHOO sales exploded.

Now customers are choosing man-made quartz  --- for color --- and one never hears anything about FEAR from the man-made quartz industry.

 

FORGET all about quartz brand names ---No brand is superior ---  they are all made the same way---- Approximately 97 % crushed quartz crystals and 7 % resin and coloring ---- Most man-made quartz is expensive

Granite & Quartzite are natural stones mined from the earth. We apply a 15 year

“ Nano Science” sealer ---( no cost ) ---  and – neither stone will ever stain

Many granites are less expensive than quartz.  Quartzite is expensive.

 

BOTTOM LINE   ----   FORGET ABOUT FEAR  -  BASE YOUR CHOICE ON LOOKS AND PRICE  WITHIN YOUR BUDGET.
