Pros and Cons of Quartzite Countertops

Quartzite is a type of material typically used for countertops and other types of stone surfaces. It’s a natural stone that can be quarried from several different locations across the globe.

It’s a common option for those looking to find countertops in the kitchen or bathroom because it has a nice finish, is durable, and is relatively affordable.

Quartzite offers many benefits similar to granite but without drawbacks such as cracking and discoloration over time and is available in a variety of colors, so it’s great for design flexibility. 


  • Similar to marble, but more cheaper in price

  • Unique, interesting design variations

  • Highly resistant to water and remains damage free

  • Harder than granite and quartz, capable of withstanding high heat

  • Once sealed, requires little maintenance 


  • While durable and strong, can still be scratched via sharp objects like knives

  • If not properly sealed, water can seep in and lead to staining or bacteria growth

  • Not DIY friendly due to its weight and should be installed by professionals
