Quartz is on the rise around the country when it comes to kitchen and bathroom countertop materials, and we at Intermountain Stone & Marble Company are proud to be a top provider of this material in Utah. Our quartz countertops help you achieve a natural stone look with virtually no maintenance, a huge factor for many busy homeowners who still want their space to look great.
As their popularity continues to grow, we’re regularly asked for price estimates on our quartz materials. This is natural – we understand that our clients need to budget for major remodeling projects like these. At the same time, though, there’s no simple answer we can give you here. Several different important factors play a role in the final cost of your quartz countertop, including some that are completely out of our hands. With that in mind, here are a few of the factors to consider if you’re looking for price ranges.
In general, costs for various stone countertop materials will be represented in price per square foot. Of the stones we offer, marble is generally the most expensive, though this can vary based on individual cuts.
Quartz is a high-quality stone with several distinct benefits. In some cases, it’s used to mimic natural stones like granite; but quartz itself is actually higher quality than some of these natural stones, so you might actually pay a bit more. Broadly speaking, you can expect to pay between $60 and $100 per square foot for a premium quartz slab.
Now, it’s important to note that virtually any project involving new quartz countertops will also come with other considerations – and these considerations, while totally out of our hands from a pricing standpoint, can play a big role in your final cost.
Consider this circumstance, for instance: You decide that you love the look of our quartz so much that beyond just using it as your countertop material, you also want to run it all the way up your wall as a backsplash. This is both practically and aesthetically beneficial, but it also comes with an increased cost. The same goes for factors like edge treatment or other work done on the slab before it reaches your home.
Finally, you have to consider your installation costs as part of the overall equation here. Quartz countertops are very heavy and might require reinforcement during installation, similar to other stone types.
How much you pay here will again depend on a few factors, namely the size of the slab and the company or contractor you hire. If you’re hiring a third party contractor, be sure to do your research and ensure they have experience specifically installing quartz countertops.
