Watch out for low countertop prices that seem too good to be true.

Typically we at Quality Stone Concepts, field phone calls where the question is asked: “what is your price on granite countertops?” Even though it seems like a straight forward question, we always struggle with how to answer that question.   Without seeing the kitchen, measuring it, and knowing exactly which countertop the customer wants, it’s really a best guess as to what the final price is going to be. However we realize that most shoppers have seen a print add or walked into Home Depot and seen the amazing deal on granite for $35 per square foot. That sounds super-affordable right?  You’ve probably measured your current countertops and calculated the square footage, you’ll have the price for installing new countertops, right?

Marble Kitchen Counter-Tops – What you need to know?

Shadow Storm Marble Marble counter-tops can give any home a timeless and classic feel. Marble is typically known for its bold veining, crisp white color, and it’s unique properties.

A sealer will help protect marble tops from acidic foods and cleaners, however, it needs to be applied at least once a year. Utensils, [...]
