San Marcos Stone Countertops

Quartz is a great material for San Marcos stone countertops. If you’re going to have new stone countertops in San Marcos TX installed, you’ll love quartz. It’s very easy to take care of, and it’s also gorgeous. Granite Brothers will provide you with a professional installation so you can be completely confident your job will be done right the first time. Here are the answers to a few questions you might have about quartz.

How Are Quartz Countertops Made?

Quartz San Marcos stone countertops are actually not technically natural. The mineral quartz is natural, of course, but countertops made of the material are man-made. Manufacturers mix quartz with resins and pigments to make countertops in San Marcos TX that are resistant to not only scratches and stain, but are also very low maintenance.

What Makes Quartz Different from Granite and Marble?

Other than the fact that quartz countertops are man-made, there are other differences as well. Granite also lasts a long time, and it’s also stain- and scratch-resistant. It also comes in a variety of colors. Marble is softer, and as a result will scratch easier.

How Durable is Quartz?

It’s extremely durable. However, like any other countertop material, quartz countertops in San Marcos TX aren’t indestructible. It does a good job of resisting chips, and, if cleaned regularly, will last for decades without needing to be resealed. But you should never use scouring pads or harsh chemicals to clean quartz. Just some mild soap, warm water and a soft towel will do just fine. Also, you shouldn’t put a hot pan directly on a quartz countertop. That could result in discoloration. Remember to always use a hot pad or a trivet instead.

Also, try to avoid cutting directly on your quartz countertop. If you do it every once in a while, that will be OK. Doing it too much could lead to scratches – no countertop material is completely scratch-proof.

Granite Brothers for the win! I needed a small vanity top cut for a custom vanity I built and they came through big time. Max worked with me to find the perfect piece to match my new tile. It’s exactly what I wanted! Will definitely use them again for future projects!

We first went to some big box stores that were outrageous with pricing and installation. We then went to Granite Brothers just looking for a bathroom countertop and was shown some remnants and found just what we were looking for. From pricing to install the experience was great and we will be using them when we update kitchen.

We used them for three different bathroom projects. They were accommodating with our budget and had a fantastic selection. The install crew was courteous and professional.

I had a great experience with Granite Brothers! Their pricing was very reasonable, one of the lower bids I got. They were quick, and were even willing to install over multiple days to accommodate my plumbing delays. The seams are virtually invisible and the counters beautiful! I highly recommend working with these folks!

Donny, Ty and his team did an amazing job with remodeling my countertops. They kept to their timeline and were upfront with communicating where they were in the process. Everyone we interacted with was professional and they did their best to clean up after their job. Thank you for your hard work and making my vision become a reality.

I recently had granite brothers install the counters for a small kitchenette in apartment above our garage. They did a great job. This is the third time I’ve used them. The previous time was to replace the kitchen counters and our bathroom counters in our current house and the first time was in our previous house to update it. What I like about them is that they’re easy to do business with. You tell them what you want they give you a really great price and then they deliver it. I have used others in the past and granite brothers is far superior

I had a great experience with Granite Brothers updating our bath and kitchen counters and sinks! We scheduled a free estimate/measurement then stopped by their show room and they talked us through price points and let us take our time deciding what we wanted. Since we picked a quartz that is purchased by the foot they even included a small waterfall we wanted no charge because it was a small piece it is usually hard to use. TJ was our rep and he was very responsive the whole time with any questions I had and gave suggestions on where to get hardware (they don’t do plumbing, but have a recommendation if you want it). They were super flexible with scheduling because we needed to wait for install until our foundation was repaired/settled. They even came out and did a second measure just to be sure everything was right. Once scheduled the guys arrived as expected and installed it and cleaned up very well after themselves. And I love the end result (see pics)! I noticed later they made the ledge next to my fridge longer than previous so we can’t fully open the door, but a quick easy phone call and that is scheduled to be fixed no issues. If I had more counters I would hire them again! Thanks Granite Brothers!
