Sealed granite is not porous so it is impervious to bacteria and germs, making it a very sanitary surface because it won't serve as a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. It also resists stains and liquids. Go ahead and plop down that hot pot. Granite countertops can take the heat and will not scorch. The stone is formed through pressure and heat, so it is naturally able to hand hot items. Granite countertops don’t need a lot of maintenance, especially with regard to cleaning. Periodic sealing is required, particularly for light colored granite. Among all the home improvements you can make, granite countertops are one addition that typically improves home resale value. Any kitchen upgrade will likely boost value, but granite is a definite plus on the bottom line at sale time.

Granite is heavy and quartz can be even heavier. Professional installation is highly recommended for quartz countertops in kitchens for a long list of reasons that go beyond its weight. They are a big investment and installers should be certified to mount the specific brand of quartz you purchase. Many countertops come with a warranty, but often if installed by a certified professional. Even though some home stores sell the material as a DIY, most experts don`t recommend going it alone – except for those who sell it that way. Quartz is a wonderful option for those who want the look of stone with less maintenance hassle. Or, if you want the durability of quartz in a brighty hued version, quartz can do that too. Just make sure you budget appropriately for this beautiful and durable kitchen countertop option.
