I have just purchased a new home and have decided to install new
have done some research and have decided to go with a
quartz countertop since
the color will be more consistant and less
costly than granite but I will still
get the same stone look and feel
as a granite. I have narrowed it down to 3
providers LG Viatera,
Zodiaq and Silestone and I am really not so sure which
ones to use. I
was wondering if anyone knows which of these products have better
attributes or something the others do not. I am having a very
deciding between the three. Please Help!
I'm curious, what part of the country are you in? In Texas granite is
actually about the same price, in some cases cheaper then silestone. If I
could not get granite though I think I would go with silestone, lots of
choices & very durable.
Of the choice you mention here, and i note that you exclude Corian (but
its not quartz anyway), in most cases Granite will be cheaper, often 50%
cheaper than Zodiaq or Silestone, epening on which color/pattern
selected. I see Granite priced from $27 sq ft to $55 sq ft for
countertops, but the engineered surfaces seem to start at $60 and can
easily top $100.
Course I live in a port city where the granite comes in so LOTS of
dealers here. Transportation of a single granite slab over long
distance is expensive yes, but then the same can be said for any of the
engineered surfaces as well.
Ok these engineered surfaces are more regular in appearance.
Consistency counts for alot for some folks.
I suggest you do a bit more research on the prices of Granite vs the
engineered quartz surfaces. your initial impression of relative expense
may be wrong.
