The price of a Zodiaq countertop is influenced by many factors, including color, thickness (2 CM or 3 CM) and the type of edging you select. Optional features like a sink or a backsplash run extra.
If you have about 30 square feet of counter space, plan on spending anywhere from about $1,500 to more than $4,000 for DuPont Quartz countertops.

- The same countertop and feature selection for a kitchen with 40 square feet of counters would run about $1,900 to $2,700. For 20 square feet of counters, the price would be $1,000 to $1,350.

Zodiac Countertop Features
Beveled edges come standard with all Dupont Zodiac Quartz countertops. If you'd like to upgrade to a fancier edge such a bullnose or large ogee, add $10 per square foot. Zodiac has seven edge designs from which to choose.
If you purchase a sink through Dupont, plan to spend about $550 to $650 extra. Single bowls have an MSRP of $550 and double bowls have an MSRP of $650.
Standard Zodiac countertops are 2 CM thick. If you'd like to upgrade to 3 CM, budget several hundred dollars extra.
Zodiac Countertop Care and Maintenance
One of the greatest benefits to Zodiac countertops is their heat- and stain-resistant qualities. However, that does not mean it is impossible to damage the countertop. To be safe, always use a cutting board and hot pads.
Cleaning a Zodiac countertop is simple. You can simply use a damp cloth or paper towel to wipe away surface stains and food debris. If necessary, you can also use a small amount of non-bleach kitchen cleaner.
Zodiac countertops come with a 10-year limited warranty. However, not every type of damage is covered. Be sure to read the fine print before making a purchase to find out what kind of damage is covered, and to understand circumstances that render the warranty void.
