So you’re considering quartz for your next project but wondering how much quartz countertops cost? First, let us say that you’ve made an excellent choice in materials because quartz is very easy to maintain and care for.
Quartz Countertop Material Costs
Quartz countertops are man-made, which gives them a uniform colour and pattern. When looking at material costs each job is different. Talking to an expert is your best option to figure out the right pricing for the job you’re looking to get done.
Don’t forget to include any shipping or delivery in your quartz countertop cost estimates. Depending on how much you need, or your specific measurements, your countertops may be assembled offsite, and delivered to your home or project site directly. This will often incur a delivery charge so talk to your manufacturer or supplier to get a delivery estimate to work into your budget.
Quartz countertop cost should also include installation fees. Because quartz is much heavier than granite, you’ll get best results with (and we always recommend) professional installation. Installers have a big job to install this heavy stone as these countertops need to be expertly leveled, supported, fabricated, and have seams joined…
Care and maintenance costs for quartz
Thankfully, quartz countertops are easy to care for, compared to other countertop stone materials. This engineered stone is non-porous, non-absorbent, and stain/scratch resistant. Unlike natural stone, they never need to be sealed or polished. The best way to keep them looking like new is by washing the surface with soap and water daily or after use.
