honed granite vs. quartz. Any opinions?
I have my honed Black Absolute granite slab picked out and was down at Ring's End looking at wooden island tops and the woman there told me I would regret my granite choice because honed Black Absolute shows every fingerprint and speck of dust and is impossible to clean and needs continual sealing.
She said I would do better choosing a black quartz countertop, I believe the name is Cambria, that looks exactly like Black Absolute and requires no maintenance. Well, that sounded good! But is there a downside to quartz? I know nothing about it.
Would love to hear from GWers with experience, opinions, advice.
Thanks in advance!
