Why Choose Granite over Other Materials?

When it comes to your kitchen or bathroom countertops, you have a variety of options. These options range widely both in terms of quality and cost, but granite tends to be a preferred option in American homes. There are a few reasons why:

  • Granite and marble countertops are the only easily-available options consisting of natural stone, and both feature beautiful grains. However, granite is more heat-resistant and easier to clean than the softer marble stone.
  • Many countertop options consist of synthetic materials. Here, you either have the option to go with a synthetic (and more customizable) version of granite, but it will often be more expensive. Alternatively, you can go with laminate, a cost-effective alternative that doesn't come close to the beauty of granite.
  • Butcher block is affordable, but can easily be damaged and requires regular maintenance. Similarly, tile countertops feature more customizability, but come with the downside of grout that can easily stain or be damaged.

Granite, on the other hand, offers the best possible combination of style and function. A single installation typically lasts between 10 and 15 years, while the natural stone grain turns your countertop into a statement piece in your kitchen or bathroom.

Understanding the Different Types of Granite

Once you choose granite as your base material, it's time to decide on the style that matches both the room and your personal taste. Granite stone can range widely in color, from black to almost completely white with various brown, blue, and grey shades in between. Depending on the stones you choose, the grain will also differ significantly, from almost non-existent to marbled or speckled.

It's also important to point out that depending on the space for your countertop, you can choose between slab and tile options. The former is more expensive, but offers a more consistent and singular surface. The latter follows the cost-effectiveness of other tile countertops mentioned above, but also presents similar downsides.

Because you are working with natural stones, no two countertops will be exactly the same. That's why picking your exact slab of granite in a showroom or together with your countertop installer is crucial in making sure that your kitchen will perfectly match your preferences and your kitchen's style.

The Cost of Installing Granite Countertops

Ultimately, depending on the size of your surface, the cost of installing a granite countertop ranges from $2,000 to $4,500 and averages about $3,100. But when working with a countertop installer, it's important to understand how that cost breaks down:

  • The slab, which will cost between $50 and $60 per square foot depending on its quality and your location.
  • The labor, which will cost between $300 and $500
  • Materials other than the granite itself are between $400 and $600.
  • Edging and the seams, which ensure that your countertop fits perfectly into your space, will cost $200 to $300 each.

"Blue Isle Granite & Tile installed my new black granite counter tops on Friday, March 19th 2010. The whole process was flawless; from the initial meeting for measurements and estimate to the day of installation. On the day of installation three Blue Isle GT workers performed their job efficiently and professionally. They arrived at the time agreed upon, installed the countertops without damaging any walls or furniture, and removed all debris; all within three hours. My new granite countertops are beautiful and I couldn't be more satisfied. I would highly recommend Blue Isle GT to anyone who wants a professional job done at a fair price. "

Outstanding service, reasonable prices, and good quality products!! We also value good communication with our contractors, and they did not disappoint. They always kept us in the loop. The level of professionalism has led us to seek future work from Angel Masonry. We believe Angel Masonry is one to add at the top of the list. Highly recommended. "
