About Quartz Countertops
Quartz countertops offer some of the best features found in Granite and Corian countertops. These include the look and shine of polished granite with the true durability and low-maintenance attributes of Corian. Quartz counter-tops are very durable, scratch, stain, and mold/bacterial resistant - most quartz countertops they come with warranties, ranging from 10 to 15 years, and even a limited lifetime warranty from Cambria.
Quartz countertops made from 93% quartz (one of the minerals in the world), quartz slabs are engineered using resin and post-consumer recycled products. They qualify for LEED points and have the GREENGUARD seal of approval due to their eco-friendly and sanitary properties. Quartz on its own creates a beautiful range of colors and patterns, mimicking granite and other natural stones. Plus, the addition of the post-consumer recycled products (typically glass) - combined with pigment - offers the opportunity to choose slabs with colors and patterns you'd never find in nature.
Here are three prominent quartz countertop manufacturers:
Cambria - They offer the longest warranties, they produce quartz countertops right here in the United States.

About Counter Tops In Dallas Costs
Project budgets and cost is always an important consideration. Of course, if money is no object, then you’ll just choose the counter top material that suits your style and lifestyle. Even if you have a tight budget you still have plenty of options to satisfy your design dreams.
Basically the cost of a counter top installation is the sum of material cost plus fabrication (custom cutting) cost plus installation labor cost. The percentage of each is different depending mostly on the chosen material.
Marble & Granite Counter Tops Price: $40-$200 sq/ft.
The price variation is almost exclusively due to the color/variety of material you choose. Some stones are just more rare than others. But countertop edges, slab thickness, number of cut-outs, unique installation issues, etc. can all influence final cost.
Quartz Counter Top Prices: $45-$120 sq ft.
Difference is mainly attributed to different brands, colors and finishes. Silestone prices can be a bit different than Cambria, etc. The average installation cost is very similar to average cost of granite countertops installed ($50-$60 sq/ft.).
Concrete Counter Top: $75-$150 sq ft.For this surface most of the cost is in the installation, which is almost an art to do well.
Solid-Surface Corian Counter Top: $30-$90 sq ft.
At one time Corian was priced similarly to granite, but prices have come down some.
Soapstone Counter Tops: $70-$100 sq. ft., but can run up to $150 for premium slabs.
Slab quality varies a lot. The harder (lower % talc) the better. However, soapstone is soft enough that DIY installation is possible saving a bundle.
Glass Counter Tops: $80-$120 sq. ft.
Price range of recycled glass counter tops is mainly in the brand and material color choice.
Choosing The Best Counter Top has a lot to do with your needs for any particular room or location and requires a bit more thought and effort than simply buying your favorite color or what your friends and neighbors have.
True, granite counter tops will provide superior performance in nearly every type of installation with quartz counter tops a close second. A couple consumer magazines rate quartz above granite, however, they never account for the fact that damage to quartz is almost always permanent, while damage to granite is almost never permanent.
So, call us and we help you take your time and give thoughtful consideration to all factors: color, pattern, finish, installation location, frequency and intensity of use, cleaning, maintenance and cost.
It’s a bit of a puzzle, but Renowned Renovation will work with you and give you enough useful information to get you started on the right foot… with confidence in your choice material and the success of your Dallas counter top project.
