I'm interested in getting quartz countertops at our house. Where is a good place to buy them? I would rather stay away from a big box (Lowes/HD), and I already know that AGM doesn't carry this...

TIA

We had quartz countertops put in a few years ago and they are gorgeous. We went through Lowe's.

Costco, they used a Stone Company in Jasper County , Sc. I had them put in granite in my home. Excellent, and the price is very good - I am sure they have granite. The stone showroom and warehouse in Jasper was awesome.

We had a good experience with this place:

Granite Shop - Summerville & Charleston, SC

First they did our kitchen then we had them back to do our bathroom.

Cool, looks like I'll have to make a late afternoon trip and check out what the stuff is going for so I can compare. Wish they had a showroom in North Charleston since I'm already over there every day, but I guess it is what it is. I'm about at the point where I need to get a sink on order and it would help to get a sample so we can pull something that has a shade of one of the colors in the quartz. Fun stuff.

Be aware that quartz has resin in it -- I have what we refer to as a "halo" on my countertop from a hot pot placed directly on it from the stove (by a teenager). Viola! A white ring appeared!

Cambria is the trade name of this product.

And then we paid a premium for the "ogee" edge -- lovely to look at, except for the chips. Yes, quartz will chip.

We paid more than we would have for granite. I love the feel & color but could cry sometimes at the waste. Good luck!

That's odd, because we have the "Silestone" branded Quartz, and haven't had any of those issues. No chips, no halos, no cracks, no discoloration. Looks just as new today as it did a couple years ago when it was installed, and I definitely don't take it easy on these counter tops.

I've worked on jobs with Creative Countertops and was always impressed with their work. It's been a while and they've grown bigger but I would definitely be calling them for a quote if I were shopping for solid surface countertops.

We did go to a place on Cross County Road to pick out our granite for the kitchen. They work with a few different suppliers.
