Here's Everything We Know About Costco Countertops

When you think of Costco, you probably think of bulk-sized groceries and household items. Maybe you are also a fan of the wholesale store's clothing and furniture pieces. Even if you are a frequent Costco shopper, you might not be familiar with the store's countertop selection. Not only does the store offer affordable prices on wholesale items, but it is also a one-stop shop for quartz and sealed granite countertops and installation services.

If you peek at Costco's webpage for their Cosentino countertops, you will see that you can learn more about installation by requesting a free virtual or in-home consultation. The process should be pretty smooth from there. One of their professionals will help interested customers select the ideal countertops for their home. After taking measurements, they provide a total price for materials and installation. The wholesale store also provides support throughout the process. This might sound like a convenient way to upgrade your kitchen countertops, but there are a few things you should know before considering making a purchase. Let's dive into everything we know about Costco countertops.

Costco sells quartz and granite countertops

According to Costco's webpage for countertops, they offer two options. Their Silestone by Cosentino line consists of natural quartz countertops created by blending natural quartz and other raw materials. This might be a great choice for those who are looking for something that offers variety because the Silestone line includes over 60 color options. For reference, quartz countertop manufacturer Cambria only has eight color options.

Cosentino's Silestone line is also perfect for those with children or anyone worried about stubborn stains causing irreversible damage because it is non-porous and stain-resistant. This is impressive, given that traditional quartz is known to stain. The webpage claims that even harsh liquids like coffee and wine won't seep into these surfaces. The material is even scratch-resistant and comes in a variety of different textures.

Costco's second option is their Sensa by Cosentino line. These countertops are made of sealed natural granite. They include a protective coat that makes the surface stain-resistant. This material differs from other granite countertops because it doesn't require sealers or specific cleaning products. It is a more low-maintenance option that still provides that classic natural granite look. The material is UV-resistant and can be installed outside, so this might be the better choice if you are looking for countertops for an outdoor cooking area.

More about the installation process

You might want to know more about the installation process before picking up the phone to schedule a consultation. As far as the timeline goes, you should not need to block out time for multiple appointments to cover the basics. "All of the big decisions are made in one appointment in the comfort of your own home," Cosentino's national account director, Kelly Martin, told Costco Connection. "It's truly white-glove service."

When the time comes for you to meet and discuss installation, you will be able to speak to a designer who will help you decide what textures, colors, and patterns will work best for your space. "You basically have a designer on your team," Martin explained. "They are well-versed in what materials are best for your purpose, not just the latest trends, and do a great job to make sure the member is happy in the long run." The actual installation is completed by Costco's Cosentino dealers. As for future repairs, replacements, or potential mishaps, natural stone countertops come with a 15-year warranty, while quartz countertops come with a 25-year warranty.
