Reasons Quartz Varies in Price

  • Slab veining

  • Color variation and transportation costs

    • Some hard-to-get color variations come from different places around the world. If you fall in love with a color that needs to be sourced from further away, you’ll need to factor in transportation costs in the overall price.
  • The quality

    • The quality of your quartz countertops will vary depending on the grade you choose to go with. The cost will typically vary depending on the manufacturer you choose. However, quartz is a high-quality stone that’s strong, durable, and built to last. Whether you go with a low or high grade: the quality will always be there.
  • Demand

    • It’s no secret that quartz is one of the most popular options on the market. The stone can naturally fit almost any style or preference out there. You just need a professional to source the stone for you! However, some color variations, styles, and looks are more popular than others. As demand gets higher, so do the prices.
  • Customization

    • Quartz is an easy-to-customize stone. This means you can have professionals cut the stone into different shapes, widths, and unusual shapes. However, the more cutouts and customizations you need, the higher the price of your installation.

This price will vary depending on the size of your kitchen and any other additional add-ons you need such as a backsplash, electrical outlet cutouts, sink cutouts, and more.
