In addition to supporting your local economy through small business, there are 3 main reasons you should consider buying your new granite or quartz countertops from a local fabricator.  Here they are:

  1. Selection:  Did you know that there are over 350 different types of Granite and Marble available to you in Hampton Roads alone?  Natural stone can be a “work of art” that comes from all over the globe.  At Lowes you will be presented with only 27 (at Home Depot 37).  Many of these selections are considered within the industry as “commodity granite” for their uniformity.  There are four local suppliers/warehouses in Hampton Roads where you can view row after row of full slabs. We can assist you to actually view the slab that is going to be installed in your house.  Why make such a substantial investment based only on a 4″x4″ sample from China?
  2. Installation:  Do the big box stores measure, cut, polish and install your countertops?  Absolutely not. If you sign a contract with Lowes or Home Depot, they will outsource the job to another 3rd party fabricator.  In many cases, that fabricator will outsource the installation to a 4th party installation company. Now ask yourself this question.  If there is a problem along the way, who do you call, Lowes, the fabricator, the installer?  This potential confusion alone is enough to consider contracting with a local granite countertop company who has their own installation team.  #qualitystoneconcepts
  3. Slab Layout: Using a “boutique” shop like Quality Stone Concepts for your countertop project you can guarantee you will NOT be one of the 20-30 kitchens put into production on a daily basis.  Unlike the high volumeproduction shops that Lowes and Home Depot favors, we allocate more time to spend with our customers, perform “slab layouts” and ensure that the most beautiful areas of the stones are included in your kitchen, not some else’s #GraniteRemnantRack.

I hope this was helpful.  If you started the process of quoting granite through #lowesgranite or #homedepotgranite and want to avoid any of these pitfalls, please bring you quote to QSC and put a name and face with the #BestReviewedGraniteCompanyInHamptonRoads.
