Granite, being far more rigid, isn’t a wimp by any stretch of the imagination, but it can crack and chip if objects are dropped on its surface. Quartz countertops aren’t as heat resistant as their granite counterparts, so caution should be used when placing hot objects on the surface, as it can discolor the resin and leave a permanent blemish on the surface.
Quartz countertops offer a consistent product when it comes to color. Various pigments can be mixed with the resins to create a uniform product. So when you see it in the showroom, it will look the same when it is installed in your home. Granite doesn’t have that consistency, because it is a one of a kind material cut of stone from the earth itself.
