What is faux granite? Is it quartz surfaces?

I am quite confusing on faux granite and [Hotlink removed by Zillow moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy.] I think they are different products. But I don't know what is faux granite? How the faux granite to be made?

Talk to a countertop dealer.  I think you will be surprised what is out there.

Another thing to add here is if you are looking for an upgrade without a killer cost you might want to look at 'solid surface' countertops. Or corian countertops these can sometimes be purchased 25-35.00 sq. ft. Many suppliers also run adds and throw in a free undermount sink (usually a white one)...at least ask for it and you'll probably get it for no extra cost.

Faux granite has the one word that answers your question...faux.
Faux can be painted or applied as a film over existing regular countertops.
Quartz countertops are like granite but unlike granite they are sealed and require no maintenance because they are non porous.
