Upscale granite and quartz countertops attract attention

Granite and quartz are premium countertop materials that look great in the bathroom and kitchen and perform even better. Quartz is a mineral that, through a manufacturing process, takes the form of engineered stone. Granite is a natural stone that is taken from a quarry and cut into thin slabs. Both types of countertops are durable and eye-catching.

Ram Interiors is a veteran-owned, family-operated flooring and more store in Owasso, Oklahoma, that offers a large selection of countertops. You can come to our showroom or our showroom can come to you. Our mobile showroom travels throughout the Owasso area.

Granite countertops

Every granite slab has a unique pattern and color. However, these colors are limited. Granite comes in earth tones as well as shades of blue, green, and red. Granite must be sealed when it is installed, and then sealed periodically throughout its lifespan. Even with the seal, granite is not as stain and damage resistant as quartz, and it requires more diligent care and cleaning. It's important to note that dark granite hides marks and stains.

Quartz countertops

Quartz countertops are made of crushed quartz and, in some brands, other minerals. Resins are used to bind the minerals together, and pigments are added for coloration. Therefore, these engineered stone countertops are available in a wide range of colors and patterns. Because of their man-made composition, sealing is not necessary. The cost of quartz and granite varies according to color, pattern, and other details so there is no general rule about the cost difference between the two types of countertops.

Countertop installation

It is best to let installation to the pros who have completed similar projects many times. Stone is heavy so installers need a clear pathway from the nearest door to the kitchen or bathroom on installation day. Installers will check to make sure that cabinets are level and secure before starting a job in a kitchen. Several stones are used for a project, and seams will be apparent regardless of the skill of the installers. The exception is darker quartz, which boasts a contemporary, clean look.
