Cultured granite may be a less expensive alternative to natural stone granite, but it comes with several drawbacks. Cultured granite is not as durable or scratch-resistant as natural granite – or quartz, for that matter. If the glossy surface gets damaged, it’s also nearly impossible to repair the cultured stone to its original condition.
If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly alternative to natural granite, you may prefer quartz over cultured granite. Not only does quartz look more elegant, but it also lasts longer and resists damage better than cultured granite.
