Factors Which Affect Quartz Countertops

There are multiple factors which influence the cost, and quality, of your quartz countertops. The old phrase “you get what you pay for” rings true throughout most of the quartz industry. Obviously, if you were to spend considerably less for a quartz countertop, it may have originated from a  cheaper source, which in turn can yield cheaper quality in most cases. However, if you were to invest in a higher quality quartz, you can most likely expect you’ll pay a higher cost for the product itself. All in all, there are multiple factors which allow the costs to fluctuate accordingly. Below, we’ve listed out some of the most common cost factors we’ve seen here at Emerald Granite Works.

The Manufacturer

Just like any other business model, there are really great manufacturers of products and there are really terrible manufacturers of products. The same is to be said with quartz. You’ll want to ensure you’re receiving quartz from a high quality manufacturer. The best way to ensure this is to ask the right questions of your granite supplier and look over customer reviews from said supplier. If there are quality concerns raised consistently throughout the reviews, or something seems “off” when communicating with the local supplier; find somebody else to help you. It’s not worth it to save some money short-term and then experience long-term costs of fixing the defunct quartz, or altogether replacing it sometime in the future. 

Country of Origin

Quartz originates from places such as Brazil, India, and even here in the USA. However, China is known for having many product inconsistencies with their quartz and should be avoided more often than not. Some of the most common issues with Chinese quartz consist of resin pooling, resin to pigment ratio inconsistencies, varying slab thickness, misuse of harmful chemicals, and more. You’ll want to try and find a granite supplier who imports their quartz from more reputable countries, or sources directly from here in the United States. Additionally, the higher price you’ll most likely pay for Chinese quartz is primarily due to the higher tariffs imposed on imports originating from areas throughout China.

Colors & Patterns

If there’s a trending pattern or color, you can expect to pay more than a standard color which is always in-stock. Quartz countertops follow the simple law of supply and demand. The higher the demand, the lower the supply, and therefore the costs increase for the specified style. 

True Quality

As mentioned above, there are higher quality and lower quality quartz throughout the world. The higher the quality, the more you’ll pay for the product; as it will typically have a much longer lifespan than the cheaper product.

So, How Much Do Quartz Countertops Cost?

Thanks for reading through and patiently waiting for the answer you’ve been searching for! Quartz countertops typically range between $45-$150 per square foot installed. This price varies upon the quality, the style, country of origin, etc… The better the quality, the higher the price.
