Welcome to Granite Countertops, the premier online destination for kitchen countertops. But Granite Countertops doesn't just concern itself with granite and kitchens. We can help you revitalize any room in your home including bathrooms. And in addition to granite countertops, our specialties include marble countertops, stone countertops, quartz countertops, tile countertops, and so much more. We do it all when it comes to countertops, and we make it our business to pair you with the perfect countertop at a price that meets the needs of your budget.
Granite countertops bring brightness and character to any room
New countertops are one of the most important decisions you'll make when it comes to remodeling your home. Your selections will have a dramatic effect on the result, and a poor choice can undermine the entire effort. Further complicating matters is the sheer amount of choice available in terms of color, material and style. And once you've cleared that hurdle, you then have to choose a contractor that is honorable, reliable and does good work at a competitive rate. This is no simple feat.
Granite countertops are big business. Flip through your local Yellow Pages or do a quick Google search and you'll find hundreds of contractors clamoring for your business. Granite countertops are extremely popular and the reasons are no secret. They're like works of art that transform our homes in truly magnificent ways. And we value them so highly because of the natural magic they possess. Synthetic materials simply cannot match the colors, the luminance and the surface depth that granite possesses.
But the popularity of granite countertops isn't just about aesthetics. Both solid and granite tile countertops offer the homeowner unrivaled durability. Granite is scratchproof and heat-resistant. You can use it as a cutting board and you can rest blistering hot pans on it without concern. And the special sealant used to coat granite guarantees that no liquids and acidic substances can ever reach the rock and undermine it. When you buy granite, you're making a purchase that will last a lifetime.
Investments in granite countertops bring real returns
That brings us to the concept of granite countertops as an investment, which is an idea that we cannot overstate and one that you cannot afford to overlook. Consumers tend to consider granite countertops to be a luxury but they also have very real long-term value. And this is something you'll want to factor into your decisions. It's much easier to spend a little more on that perfect countertop when you know that the extra expense will provide a return in terms of home appreciation.
We remodel our homes to make them more beautiful and more modern but we also do it because it makes our homes more valuable. In the end, we recoup those expenses and profit in the appreciation. In terms of that home appreciation, some decisions carry more weight than others do. For instance, carpets and paint change easily so have very little effect on the long-term worth of the home. Countertops, on the other hand, are far more permanent and they often add value to the home that is well beyond the actual costs of the materials and the installation.
Once you've made the decision to install granite countertops, it's time to consider the diversity on the market. This is certainly not a decision you want to rush into. You have to decide which material you want, and once you've made that choice, you'll have to choose from the various colors and styles that the material comes in. This can be a complex process if you're unprepared for it because it's not an isolated decision. Other important factors include the room's color scheme and the design of fixtures and other accessories.
The good news is that since granite is a natural stone there is near limitless array of patterns and color mixtures. And today, thanks to computers and the Internet, the full range of choice is more accessible than it's ever been. No matter what your remodeling needs are, you will find the stone that meets them. And if you have trouble finding the perfect choice, the experts at Granite Countertops can help, which brings us to the following questions: Who are we? What do we do? And why choose us?
For starters, Granite Countertops is neither a vendor nor a contractor. Instead, we're a service that pairs vendors with contractors and contractors with homeowners. Using this network, we're able to cut out all but the best contractors and vendors, which allows us to save both homeowners and businesses a great deal of money. Best of all, our services are 100% cost- and obligation-free for the homeowner. We make our money through the partnerships without our vendors and contractors.
Of course, there are plenty of Web portals out there promising to pair you with the right granite countertops at the right price. So how do we differ? Well, we're not just another Web developer powered portal. At Granite Countertops, we're a skilled team with real experience in this industry at the wholesale level, the vendor level and at the installation level. That experience makes us uniquely qualified to build this network and to meet the needs of homeowners.
Our network of professionals have decades of experience installing granite countertops
Most homeowners assume that granite countertops cost a lot but it doesn't have to be that way. Our network makes a difference by limiting the cost of vendors and contractors who can then pass those savings onto the customer and make even more money in the end. Unlike so many other contractor networks, membership here is a privilege, one that a vendor or contractor cannot simply buy their way into. We hand-select our partners using extremely high but very fair criteria.
We want our contractors to have established themselves and therefore have a stake in your community. This ensures you that you're not dealing with an unreliable operation. All of our partners have proven records and great reputations. We also ensure that our partners approach customer service the way we do, and perhaps most important of all, we make sure that they're charging rates below the area norm. Entry into the network isn't a one-time deal. In fact, we reassess all of our partners every month.
Before you settle on high prices and inferior products, take a moment to fill out our form. The form is simple and there's absolutely no obligation or strings attached. We also promise that we will never use that information outside of our network. Once done, click the submit button. Within moments, our system will return to you a list of contractors in your area that meet your needs and our standards. After that, you can contact us, or the contractors on the report, for further information.
Once you have our partners' no-risk, no-obligation quotes, take your time. Each quote we provide is good for the next 30 days. Feel free to shop those quotes around to non-network contractors in your area. We're sure you'll agree that we provide the lowest, most dependable quotes available. Once you're ready to begin, contact us and we'll get started on helping you choose the right color, material, pattern and style. We look forward to working with you and we guarantee that this granite countertop will be one of the best, most enjoyable purchases you've ever made.
