Cost Of Granite Countertops

The cost of granite countertops is actually based on many different variables other than square footage. Sure the square footage of the actual granite countertop itself is taken into consideration, but so are the lay-out options, complexity of shapes, granite color selection, quality grade of the granite stone itself, customer requirements, edge detail, seam location, quantity and type of cut-outs, rod reinforcement, how many holes are drilled, geographical location of the project and those variables will just get you started.


When considering the price of granite countertops, it is popular for granite fabricators to offer a base level category of granite colors. Typically this category is the most competitively priced granite for countertops that the fabricator offers. The base level category can have significant differences from one fabricator to another. Depending on the stone fabricator, these choices of granite colors may or may not be popular granite selections. Some granite companies will offer cheap low cost granite that is not exactly appealing or popular, as a way to lure customers into the door. Other fabricators are very efficient in the way they process granite and can offer discount granite countertops with great value including popular granite colors and choices. Some fabricators import containers of granite directly from overseas and others will only purchase granite from local distributors in various quantities. The way the fabricator elects to purchase and process granite slabs will impact the cost of granite countertops.


Over the years I have given the analogy that purchasing granite is similar to purchasing a diamond. Although I don’t know as much about diamonds as I do granite, I know enough to say that all diamonds of equal size are not the same price. I believe that the cut and clarity of a diamond reflects a great deal of it’s pricing. So, when shopping for granite countertops, pay particular attention to the amount of depth, clarity and movement within the granite slabs or granite samples. Stone fabricators can save money if they purchase granite slabs that have unsightly marks, excessive fissures, short lengths and lack of depth or clarity. These factors will effect the cost of granite countertops.
