Granite, Marble, and Quartz are all appealing for countertops in a kitchen or bathroom, all three come in various colors and patterns and are a natural alternative to laminate, wood or concrete.
Granite is the most common choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops because of its natural appeal and its resistance to stains, cracks and scratches. Both marble and granite are naturally made stones and although marble has the most unique look it can be less forgiving when it comes to stains and scratches. Marble is more porous than both granite and quartz making it more susceptible to staining especially with highly acidic liquids and cleaners. Unlike marble & granite, quartz countertops are not entirely natural, they are manufactured stone about ninety-two percent quartz and eight percent resin. By doing this it gives the manufacture a wider variety of color options and designs. Quartz is also the least porous of the three stones making it the most resistant to stains and scratches and requiring the least about of care and upkeep.
