It is true that on average quartz is more expensive than granite. Granite is a natural stone taken from a quarry. In other words, it is naturally produced and only needs slight enhancements and polish. Quartz products, on the other hand, are considered engineered stones. This means that the ~93% of quartz found in the product go through a manufacturing process to produce the desired effect. Therefore, there is much more involved in producing an engineered quartz countertop material than a natural granite countertop material. However, there are certain benefits to quartz countertops which is covered in our material comparison on our website. more
