Learn about the different quartz companies to discover whether cheaper or expensive ones are better.

Some people believe that buying cheap quartz is a better alternative than more expensive options, but in many cases this isn’t true. We are committed to offering our clients the best quartz countertops. Therefore, in this blog we’ll discuss what the best quartz brands to consider are. And we’ll discuss the main brand that Mogastone uses.

Expensive or Cheap Quartz: What To Consider

Why choose more expensive options rather than cheaper?

With quartz you get what you pay for. This affects many factors when considering the difference between cheap and expensive quartz countertops.


More expensive quartz slabs are more durable, meaning they won’t crack, scratch, or break as easily as cheaper ones.

Colors and Patterns

The colors, patterns, and realistic look of the quartz vary depending on the price range. The lower the price, the lower the quality is going to be.


When considering the finish, durability, and resistance, more expensive quartz has the upper hand. That means that it’ll last longer and not have to be replaced within a few years.


Considering cleanup and hygiene, price doesn’t affect much. But when it comes to maintenance, lower-priced quartz countertops require more effort than higher-priced. For example, maintenance includes fixing chips, dealing with stains, and similar things, and with cheaper material, these can be more difficult to deal with.

Good Quartz Brands

Now what brands are actually good to consider?

There are a number of brands that manufacture good quartz. Here’s a list of what brands to look for when thinking about purchasing quartz countertops:
