Laminate is just a piece of plastic that is put on wood and made into a countertop. The difference is enormous. Quartz is an engineered stone that is extremely hard to break, sustainable, and heat resistant up to about 425 degrees.
Yes, they are almost impossible to break, impossible to stain, will last long after you are gone, and are extremely heat resistant, not to mention they just look appealing and beautiful, making quarts countertops a fantastic long-term investment.
Quartz is easier to keep clean, and you don’t have to worry about the sealant. With granite, it has little tiny micropores that can get stained a bit easier than quartz, and granite does break a little easier than quartz; however, granite can withstand any kind of heat while quartz can only withstand about up to 425 degrees before you run the risk of it becoming scorched. Light scorch marks on quartz can be smoothed out, but heavy scorch marks on quartz will not be able to be removed.
Quartz is considered a forever product. It’s not likely to go out of style. 10, 30, 50, or even 100 years from now, your quartz countertop will most likely still look and feel the same. They are engineered to hold their value and last.
