What is “prefabricated” granite and do you have it? 2014-11-14T23:42:14+00:00

Prefabricated granite is granite that has been cut and polished overseas to take advantage of lower labor costs. Quality Stone imports prefabricated granite vanity tops. We carry 4 colors in 7 standard sizes. These 2cm granite vanity tops are imported with the backsplashes already cut, the faucet spreads are already drilled and the undermount bowl cut out is already done. The labor savings are passed to the customer.

Do you have remnant pieces of granite? 2014-11-14T23:41:47+00:00

Absolutely, we have a large selection of remnant pieces of granite. The benefit of using remnant pieces of granite is that you can save money as well as eliminate the costly waste associated with buying an entire slab of granite. Remnant pieces of granite are optimal for single bathroom vanity tops.
