Quartz Countertops: A Cost Comparison

Quartz Countertops:

You are interested in getting quartz countertops for your kitchen, but you want to know if you can afford this great look. We are here to help. What exactly is quartz? Manufactured from real quartz crystal bound by a resin mixture, quartz, or “engineered stone,” looks just like real stone. Unlike real stone, though, it is available in a variety of sizes and colors that offer great durability and ease of maintenance unlike a lot of natural stone options. This is a great benefit for many homeowners who would like to have ample choice of the color of countertops, but do not want to worry about the maintenance of natural stone. It has all the durability and resistance to wear and tear that is associated with solid stone, but since it can be created in any form it is no trouble to mold backsplashes or sink basins out of the quartz material as well, which can complement your countertops beautifully. This can truly be a stunning addition to a home. In this guide we will look at ways that quartz countertops can fit into your budget.

Quartz Countertops Cost:

The cost of quartz countertops are affordable and functional. Quartz is comparable in price to natural stone countertops, and will cost about $50 or more per square foot installed. Unlike natural stone it is available in a variety of colors. Working with a local contractor who has a local supplier is the best option for the environment as well as your wallet.

Quartz Countertop Installation:

Installation of a quartz countertop is often straightforward and uncomplicated, which makes it more affordable as there are few or no additional charges. However, it may become more expensive in more complicated circumstances. An ideal installation would start with a professional contractor’s measurement and estimate. After making an appointment, a TSD Center design specialist will come to your home to do the necessary measurements and give you a more accurate estimate.

After exact measurement the countertop will be fabricated, and then the kitchen will be prepared for the installation. Engineered stone must be cut with the special tools like a wet saw and then polished and sealed properly. It is much better to do this outside, before it is installed. The durability, versatility, and beauty of quartz make it the perfect match for most modern homeowners.
