How Much Does a Quartz Countertop Cost?

 
 average costAverage Kitchen: $1,500-$2,700 
post E-mail post Post  

Also called engineered stone, quartz countertops are man-made solid slabs composed of natural quartz crystals held together with resin. Engineered stone kitchen countertops provide a seamless work surface for cooking that is impervious to liquids and resistant to chips, cracks, and scratches. Because engineered stone is nonporous and resistant to bacteria, it makes for an easy-to-clean bathroom counter.

Typical costs:

  • Quartz countertops cost $50-$90 per square foot, or $1,500-$2,700 for a typical kitchen with 30 square feet of counter space, including professional installation.

What should be included:
  • Engineered stone countertops should be polished and the outer edges shaped. Quartz countertops do not need to be sealed.
  • Because installing most quartz countertops is not a DIY project, installation of an engineered stone countertop is included in the price of the countertops. Installation should include a professional measurement before the countertops are ordered, removal of old countertops, preparation of the cupboard surfaces (including leveling and shimming), installation, inspection, and cleanup.
  • Quartz countertops come with long-term limited warranties. Zodiaq countertops carry a 10-year warranty. Silestone includes a 15-year warranty.
Discounts:
  • Both Silestone and Zodiaq[1] have discounts and special offers available on their websites.
Shopping for a quartz countertop:
  • Before beginning to price engineered stone countertops, measure the countertop area. Home Depot provides a worksheet[2] to help calculate the measurements, including corners and tricky areas. The installer or contractor will do an official measurement later, but a good estimated area will help you estimate the cost of the countertops before making your purchase.
  • Home Depot[3] and Lowes[4] sell a variety of kitchen countertop materials. Other brands of engineered stone such as Cambria[5] , CaesarStone[6] and HanStone[7] are sold by specialty kitchen & bath remodeling stores.
  • Call ahead to schedule an appointment for a consultation at a kitchen & bath or home improvement store. Many stores get busy, especially on weekends.
