### The Cost of Silestone Countertops

Silestone countertops is an excellent choice for a kitchen countertop surface if you are looking for a high-end look that is also durable. Unlike other high-end countertops, Silestone will not stain, scorch, or scratch.

### Estimate the Cost of A Silestone Countertop For Your Home

**Required Tools:** Tape Measure / Calculator or Spreadsheet

**1)** Measure the length of the counter in inches. Be sure to measure to the wall and not to the backsplash for an accurate measurement. For example, we will use a length of 130 inches.

**2)** Measure the width of counters in inches. Be sure to include in your measurement the overhang that extends beyond the base cabinet. For example, we will use a width of 25 ½ inches.

**3)** Multiply the width times the length to get the number of square inches. For example, 130 x 25.5 = 3,315 square inches.

**4)** Divide the total number of square inches by 144 to get the number of square feet. For example, 3,315 / 144 = 23.02 square feet.

**5)** Multiply the number of square feet times the cost per square of the Silestone countertops you selected. Silestone countertops can range anywhere from $50 to $100 per square foot installed. For this example, we will use a cost of $75 per square foot. Therefore, $75 x 23.02 = $1,726.50.

**6)** $1,726.50 is the cost estimate for the Silestone countertops in this example. However, the price can vary for multiple reasons. Specifically it can change if you include installation, plumbing, built-in features, backslash or a fancy edge.

### Notes

• If chipped or cracked, Silestone can be repaired or rubbed out due to it’s consistent material of manufactured quartz.

• Sileston comes in more colors and options beyond the options available from natural granite

• Granite tends to be a little less per square foot
