Sealing granite countertops is a DIY project even a novice DIYer can handle. Follow these step-by-step instructions (with pictures) to protect your countertops.
Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.
Want to update your bathroom without leaving it outdated in a decade? Consider these bathroom remodel ideas for counters, colors and style that transcend time.
Artificial (quartz) is cheaper, more uniform, has fewer voids to collect dirt, and is almost as abrasion and chip resistant.
Granite is more expensive, stains and collects dirt a little easier as a rule, and is slighly more chip resistant as a rule.
For durability, I would not rate one over the other - barring a 250 lb guy hopping up on it and cracking it, either is likely to outlive you. Selection is typically based on appearance - quartz tends to be more uniform looking and does not always do a good job of simulating the veining and variations that natural stone has.
Now some of the man made stone counters rival the real granite and othe stones without the maintainence of stone. There are many of them out there and it is more a choice of looks than anything else. Corian is still a strong choice of tops today and one advantage is it can be repaired when scratched on site. If you don't mind the maintainence you can't beat the looks of real stone though unless you need a few pieces to make up the top as the graining may be hard to match up. I am impressed though at how realistic some of the man made products have become. It is more an issue of what brand are available in your area. Most all are made the same way with crushed stone and basically an epoxy binder used to make the sheets.

If you do decide to go to their shop I suggest that you call in advance and get instructions (they are located behind a cabinet shop and not easy to find).
We called in last December to schedule the service and received a call back from the company a few days later. We got on their schedule for a certain day for the consultant to bring samples to our home. On the specified day, the consultant was late, and we finally received a call. Turns out, she had two calendars, and our appointment was showing on two different days in each calendar. When we confirmed it was supposed to be THAT day, she came right over.
We looked over several samples, including Corian and quartz (we had ruled our granite due to maintenance). We gravitated toward a quartz that looks just like Carerra marble. Ours was called Coarse Carerra. We picked that out, and we were also informed that because it was

Templating was scheduled for January, and the template guy showed up with the fancy laser measurer and computer. It took about an hour but was an interesting process to watch.
A few weeks after that,
On the day of, the installers arrived a bit late. It wasn't a big deal since I work from home, but they said 9 AM and arrived closer to 10. Nonetheless, it was a very professional and efficient crew. It was pouring down rain, and they were able to maneuver their small truck to our back garage for easier access. I was impressed with how efficient they were getting the two piece L-shaped section installed and joined, installing the undermount sink, and installing the island.
The cooktop cutout for the island had to be performed on site, but no one told me it would generate tons of dust. Thankfully, the install crew suggested they come back another day to do that cutout, which would give me time to hang plastic everywhere. I opted to go that route, and it was 2-3 days later that they came back to cut out for the cooktop.
I had been told they would show up at one time, and they were again about an hour late. It was to the point, that I was about to have to cancel a meeting I had scheduled when they showed up. Thankfully, they were very efficient with the cutout, did their best to keep the dust contained within the plastic area I had prepped, and vacuumed up what they could that escaped.
There were so efficient that I was able to keep my appointment, but I do have to give
I do think the crew's professionalism and quality of work stands out. The new counters look gorgeous. I would definitely use
