Quartz countertops:
There is a difference in the quality, depending on the manufacturer and where they were made. If the were made in China, they are cheaper but most likely are substandard, having much less quartz (65%, or less) with the balance different fillers, resulting in scratches and chips.
Good quality materials have more quartz (95% +/-). Cambria is made in the US and Caesarstone is made in Israel. Both are top quality as are many others. The point is, get the details before making a decision!
