" Brooke and Deywson made this an awesome experience from start to finish! Brooke went way out of her way to personally pick me up to take me to their warehouse to see slabs. Talk about customer service!! I was so happy she did because when I saw my pick in person, I did not like it. She patiently walked around with me until I found one I loved! Deywson made the template and in talking, he showed me where I could extend my countertop. I was pleased to no end because I was concerned about losing some prep area in going from a single to double sink. Now, in addition to the double sink, I gained prep area!! Brooke was very much in contact with me throughout the process, even sending videos of my kitchen in progress ! It was great! She is one of the most hard working people I have ever met and her commitment to customer service is above and beyond anything I ve ever seen!! Installation was yesterday and there was a little snag due to extending the countertop. Instead of being satisfied with a little misfit and gaps, Deywson said he was not happy with it and the piece went back to the shop to be adjusted, and then he returned with it and it was perfect!! He and the crew that was here treated my new kitchen as if it was their own. I absolutely can not say enough about Brooke and Deyson and the whole process. I have used Home Advisor for a number of jobs over the years, and this was, by far, my best experience!! I have also posted a review on their website."

Ideas & Inspiration from Philadelphia Countertop Contractors


Philadelphia Granite Counters

When it comes to choosing the very best for your home, natural stone has a look and feel that's hard to beat. Using stone in and around the house gives your property a feeling of authenticity and history. Granite in particular is a highly prized building material in just about any capacity. In Philadelphia, granite countertops are not as common as tile or laminate, so they're a great addition to consider if you want to give your home a unique look and raise its market value, too.

Benefits
Extreme durability, uncommon strength, and a luxurious appearance characterize granite countertops. Philadelphia homeowners will certainly find that this material is, in almost every case, an improvement over their existing counters. Under normal circumstances, granite doesn't scratch, chip, stain, crack, or burn, and with its classic good looks, granite is sure to fit right in with the city's more historic homes.

When compared to the tile or laminate that is so common in Philadelphia, granite counters perform better in almost every way. Laminate, while certainly less expensive, has a mere fraction of granite's strength. Laminate is far less durable and adds far less value to your home. Though tile has historically been the popular choice in Philadelphia, granite counters are every bit as appealing and are easier to work on and clean due to the lack of grout-filled seams.

Drawbacks
Granite has very few physical drawbacks. Like any natural stone, granite is porous. High quality granite, however, is much less porous than many other materials. In some cases, it can become slightly discolored if a dark liquid is left to pool on it for extended periods of time. In general, though, the slightly porous nature of granite is not a problem.

Counter Pricing
It isn't cheap to purchase or install granite countertops. Philadelphia prices are around the national average of $4,000-$5,000. The price will be lower or higher depending on the quality of granite you purchase, the size of the counter, and sometimes the color of the stone, as well.

Colors and Qualities of Granite
Granite used in construction can be taken from anywhere between the grounds surface and many feet underneath. The farther down you go to get the granite, the higher the quality (because it has been exposed to less damaging elements) and the more expensive it will be because it costs more money to extract.

The color of granite can also play a part in its ultimate cost. Variations in color come about because of different minerals and conditions of the area where the granite is quarried. This means that a specific color of granite generally comes from a specific area of the country, and may only come from a specific quarry. One of the many factors that influence the price of natural stone is the cost of transporting such a heavy material. The farther your granite needs to travel to get to you, the more likely it is that it will be expensive.

When it comes to variety and color, Philadelphia residents will have a wide selection of stone that comes from relatively nearby. There are many quarries on the east coast (from Georgia and South Carolina all the way up to Maine and Canada) that produce many different colors of granite. For most, one of these east coast quarries will produce a color and texture that will compliment your home.
