There are few design elements that spark heated debate and divide homeowners as much as granite vs quartz. But is one really better than the other or is it merely a matter of aesthetics?


Granite is a very hard stone and 100 percent natural. It’s mined from quarries all around the world, cut down to a manageable size, and then polished to a fine finish.


Quartz is slightly different in that it is not 100 percent natural. Instead, countertops are manufactured using 95 percent ground natural quartz and 5 percent polymer resins.
