Here are some of the most important disadvantages and advantages of granite that you need to know:

1. The    color and structure of granite are heterogeneous, it has streaks, large grain. This fact may be a disadvantage for some, an advantage for others.

2.    Granite countertops should be treated with a special sealant, since they have a porous surface where spots can remain. Reprocessing can be carried out after 3 years. More often than not, this is due to the fact that the countertop will be painted.

3.    Granite countertops are very durable, but they should not be considered indestructible, it is a rock, and even rocks break if you apply extremely high force to them. But in everyday use, granite can last forever.

4. The    stone is heavy and requires that professionals install it. Do not hire handymen to install granite countertops.

5.    It is not possible to completely hide the seams on the granite countertop; expect that the seams at the joints of the countertop will be visible.

6. The    samples of stone that you see when choosing a countertop may slightly differ from the stone that you get in the end. Since each centimeter of natural stone has its own uniqueness. The color and structure of the picture will also be slightly different.

After reading reviews on the Internet in favor of one or another stone, you are not sure what to choose, as the owners clearly insist on the correctness of their choice. One thing worth noting is that the owners of both quartz and granite countertops defend their choice with a vengeance, as they are absolutely happy with their choice.


Like granite, quartz agglomerate also has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, like material for kitchen worktops.

1.    Quartz countertops are as durable as granite, plus – they are more flexible. Which facilitates the processing and installation process.

2.    Quartz agglomerate has a non-porous structure and does not require compaction and additional processing. This stone is very practical and great for countertops.

3.    Both of these materials are very durable, they can be considered as indestructible.

4.    Another advantage of quartz against granite is that, over time, it does not fade under the influence of direct sunlight.

5.    Quartz is slightly heavier than granite, which makes the process of installing countertops from it problematic, and it is advisable that professionals deal with it.

6. It is    expected that there will be seams at the joining places of the quartz countertop, it should be borne in mind that when choosing material darker, the seams will be less noticeable. In addition, choosing a material with a more uniform structure – the seams will be less visible. In granite, the naturalness of the color, structure and veins will not allow you to hide the seams.
