Calacatta quartz is a white quartz that is manufactured to look like Calacatta marble, a rare marble found only in Carrara, Italy. Calacatta marble is typically going to cost between $100 and $250 per square feet for the unfinished slab of marble, before a stone fabricator like Worldwide Granite finishes and installs the marble to the buyers specifications.
The cost, softness and high maintenance of marble has created a perfect opportunity for manufacturers of quartz, an engineered stone, to create quartz surfaces that are less expensive and much easier to maintain but look like marble. Enter the many varieties of Calacatta quartz.

White Quartz Countertops: Who Do I Call First?
Let's say you're renovating your kitchen or bath and will need new cabinets, island, vanity and of course, countertops, wouldn't you just call the cabinet company first? No! Would you call the quartz supplier first? No. Call the stone fabricator first - us, and here's why.
The cabinet company does not provide stone fabrication and instead, they act as the general contractor, will have a company like Worldwide Granite measure, cut, finish and install the countertop while charging a mark-up for managing the project. When you consult with Worldwide Granite first, before you choose your cabinets or surface, we can guide you on your surface selection, recommend a cabinet company and quartz surface supplier and you save money! The quartz supplier, like the Mont Surfaces, UGM Surfaces and MSI Surfaces will not let you tour the slabs of surfaces unless you're working with a designer, contractor or fabricator (as stated on their website). At Worldwide Granite we are a fabricator, so starting your white quartz countertop journey with us will ensure you pay less and get the direction and access you need.
