Quartz Countertops


What is quartz?

Natural quartz is a non-porous crystal, and it is one of the hardest, most abundant minerals on earth.

 

Quartz countertops are a man-made product composed of 90-93% ground-up natural quartz crystals and about 7-10% epoxy resins, colorants and dyes. Sometimes the mix includes recycled materials such as glass and porcelain.

Why choose quartz over granite?

The man-made nature of quartz countertops allows for far more color and pattern consistency than is found in granite or marble.

 

Quartz countertops have the variety of granite, the non-porous nature of glass, and the durability of natural quartz. Unlike natural stone countertops, quartz counters don't need to be sealed.

What options are available?


Quartz countertop color samples

We keep color swatches of each of several quartz brands in our store so that you can see the colors and patterns in person. You can even check them out as samples to help you choose cabinetry, paint colors, and more. 

 

We have preset pricing for Pental Quartz and Caesarstone; keep scrolling to learn more!

 

We distribute several other quartz brands including Silestone,  CambriaCosmos Quartz, and Eco by Cosentino. If you'd like quotes on colors from any of these brands, let us know.

 

We're your local supplier of these fine quartz products, so feel free to visit their websites and see the many different options we can install for you.

How do I get quartz countertops?


Step 1: Preparation & Decisions

Countertop Sketch with dimensions and details

First, draw out your countertop; a simple sketch with measurements to the nearest inch will do. Mark where edges, backsplashes, sinks, or appliances will go.  

Don’t worry about having perfectly accurate measurements; the fabricator will make an accurate template of your counters later (we don't send the fabricator out before you purchase your countertop; waiting until afterwards to template saves both time and money). 

Next, choose which material you like. If you are trying to decide between a few different colors or materials (for example, between a granite and a quartz), we can provide quotes for each option.

Step 2: Proposal

Once all of the details are figured out for your solid surface installation, we'll work up a price quote/job proposal. The price quote includes the cost of material, fabrication, template, and installation.

We work with several different fabricators and slab suppliers (including the ones used by the big box stores), and as such can get you a competitively priced slab.

If the price is right and you want to move forward, the next step is the template.

Step 3: Fabrication & Installation

Our fabricator will go on-site, take firm measurements and create a rigid template of your counter space. You'll need to have your sinks, faucets and anything else that effects the cut of the slab handy so that they can be factored into the measurements.

Then the fabricator will take the template back to the shop and cut the slab. If not already done, your old countertop will need to be removed before the install date. The installers can remove the old counters for an additional charge.

A week or two after the template date, your slab will be installed and the sink will be attached (if undermount). You'll still need to arrange to have your plumbing connected (pipes need to be hooked up to the sink by either yourself or a plumber), but you'll have a beautiful result.

How much does a quartz countertop cost?

Quartz countertops can range from $69 to $120 per square foot installed, depending upon brand. Several factors such as edge detail and type of sink will raise or lower the price. 

 

We have preset pricing on Pental Quartz and Caesarstone (see below), and can provide price quotes for other brands, including Cambria.

Our Countertop Program


We have 130 quartz colors in our preset price groups. These price groups include the cost of the quartz slab(s), fabrication, installation, and hole cut-outs for faucets and self-rimming sinks. You can preview the colors on the Pental Quartz webpage and the Caesarstone webpage. If you want pricing on a color that is not from the Pental or Caesarstone, let us know and we'll get you a price quote.

 

PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE REMOVAL OF OLD COUNTERTOPS. We charge appx. $200-$500 to remove and dispose of your old laminate and tile countertops. 

 

Some edge details and undermount sinks will add to the cost of the overall installation.

Select an Edge Profile

Countertop edges

Five basic edge profile options (eased, beveled, half-bullnose, quarter round, and crescent) are included in your installation price.
 

 


Upgrade edge profile options (full bullnose and ogee) are an additional $12.50 per lineal foot.

Pick your Sink

A self-rimming or drop-in sink needs holes cut for the sink (and faucet, if necessary), but no extra polishing is needed. The cost of cut-outs for self-rimming sinks is included in the listed prices.

If you choose an undermount sink, the price for polishing the edge of the sink cut-out is $249. The installers will also attach the sink to the underside of the countertop during installation.


Note: Our installers aren’t plumbers; you’ll be responsible for hooking your pipes up to the sink(s) after your countertops are installed.

Considering a Quartz Backsplash?

Plane down a backsplash

Solid quartz backsplashes follow the same per square foot pricing as countertops. 4" tall is average for bathroom backsplashes, while in kitchens, most people go with a tile or mosaic backsplash.

Think 3cm is too thick for a backsplash? If your backsplash is 6" tall or shorter, the installers can plane it down to 2cm for an additional $12.50 per lineal foot. 

Note: The top of the backsplash will always be a flat polish.
