In the application of countertops, the aggregates are of great importance. Obviously, the aggregates must allow the concrete to set up as it should. However, aggregates can have roles in the aesthetics of the concrete countertop, as well. For example, the type of fine aggregates chosen (i.e. sand) can drastically change the color of the finished product. Also, if the countertop is polished, the process can grind into the concrete, exposing aggregates. In this case, aggregate sizes and colors are just as important as any concrete coloring to the final look of the top. Also, if exposing the aggregate, consider using aggregates other than gravel, including broken glass, marble or granite chips, nuts and bolts, etc.

The primary issue is that despite a similar cost, engineered quartz counters don’t increase the value of your home as much as granite countertops do. Home buyers prefer the natural material over the man-made counter, so you’ll want to keep this in mind if you’re remodeling your kitchen as an investment. Additionally, although quartz counters are designed to mimic the natural look of granite, some people believe that quartz lacks the depth and beauty of granite. To be certain which look you prefer, make sure you see samples of both natural and engineered stone. Finally, with quartz your color and pattern options are more limited than with natural stone. There are a large number of colors available, but especially if you’re trying to exactly match your existing color scheme you may prefer the limitless rainbow of natural stone.
