Get the Full Experience, Pick out Your Own Granite Slab

Installing granite countertops is a wonderful way to accentuate the beauty of your home and add to its value. Because this is an important decision it is best for you to be more involved in the process. Take time to visit your granite supplier and choose your own granite slab. By doing this you can actually see the quality of the granite as well as get the true effect of the colors and patterns that are offered.  There are a few things that you should keep in mind as you make your choice.

Granite varies slab to slab and lot to lot and you won’t be able to absorb the nuances through browsing the internet or by looking at a standard sample card. Walk through the slabs with your granite countertop professional and they can explain the differences as well as the benefits of your possible choices. As you go through the slabs really look at them. Check for imperfections or unusual spots of color that may look out of place. You are investing your hard earned cash in your countertops so make sure that you will be satisfied.

When granite is mined it is done in big blocks and then cut into slabs. These slabs make up the lot. By buying from the same lot of granite your patterns, colors and quality will be more consistent. This is particularly important if your project requires more than one slab. Additionally, specialists in granite countertops will be able to match the pieces to give you a continuous run that matches seams.

Granite prices can vary widely. Discuss all of your options with your granite professional and they can help guide you to the best choice for your particular project. By taking the time to involve yourself in your granite selection you will end up with a product that you will be proud to have in your home and that you will enjoy for many years to come.




  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
