Granite and quartz surfaces are very durable and capable of lasting a long time 50 years. They are both heat, scratch, chemical and stain resistant. Quartz surfaces are engineered from natural quartz while granite, in and of itself, is a natural stone. Both surfaces are low maintenance. While granite is limited to all the colors nature has produced, quartz is artificially colored. While granite and quartz are in the upper tiers of cost, they will give you the longevity and durability associated with their price. Granite will take a hot pot while quartz is less resistant to high heat.
Quartz is a manufactured stone and it is hard to duplicate the veining and pattern look you get from genuine marble or granite. Quartz is approximately 20% to 40% more expensive than granite. Granite can be cold to the touch but will also make it ideal to prepare baking goods on.
