Most people assume granite counters are expensive, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Remember, this is 2021, and there have been some amazing improvements in production over the last decade or so. Below are some ofter asked questions about pricing.
What’s Cheaper Buying Granite Slabs or Granite by the square foot?

What’s the average cost for installed Kitchen Granite Countertops?

On average, a large kitchen countertop project located in Tampa Bay can cost between $7,500-$11,500.
What is a good price for granite countertops installed?
A “good price” is a really loaded, generalized question. Pricing from project to project can change drastically depending on the size of the space and the amount of square footage, and if you need any additional services completed to get your project completed to your satisfaction. A good price to pay if you are looking for basic granite countertops is between $40-$60 sf. A good price for mid-level granite counter tops is between $65-$85 sf. A good price for a luxury level or exotic granite counters is between $90-$180 sf.
Which is cheaper granite or quartz countertops?
Granite countertops start off at a lower price point than quartz countertops, but that doesn’t always mean that the granite you pick is going to be cheaper than a quartz design. Most people find that quartz countertops are similar in pricing to level 2 and up granites. The general rule of thumb, between granite and quartz, is that the more movement or the more unique the stone is, the more money you will pay for it.
How much does granite cost for a 10×10 kitchen?
An average 10×10 Kitchen usually shakes out to be about 45 square feet. On the higher end of the spectrum, the fabrication and installation of new granite counter tops can be as high as $7500. On the low end, you may see prices like $2750 for a 10×10 kitchen remodel.

Can installed granite countertops be recut/resued?
Yes and No. Already installed counters can be recut, yes, but finding a fabricator to do that for you will be hard. You find that not every piece will fit your kitchen cabinets as is, and may require recutting or repolishing.
Are granite countertops heat resistant?
Yes. All durable stones can withstand high temperatures. However, extremely unnatural amounts of heat can break down the stone over time.
What stains granite (natural stone) surfaces?
Common kitchen countertops stains are caused by Wine, Coffee, Tomato Sauce, Cooking Oil, and Grease. Common bathroom countertops stains are caused by Hair Products, Hair Dye, and Toothpaste. Excess tap water left on the surface also can stain.
Does granite require any maintenance after installation?
We recommend you seal your granite surfaces with a strong and effective sealer. We recommend Dry-Treat Ultra sealer as your choice.
Dry-Treat Ultra sealer is a single component, water-based acrylic that seals the surface and penetrates deep into any porous natural stone.
What’s the best way to clean granite surfaces?
The easiest way to clean any natural stone surface is with soap and water, but the more difficult stains require a little scrubbing. Most store-bought cleaners have silicone added to them, which will cause your surfaces to be dull and spotty. Stick to soap and water.
Which is better? Granite Countertops or Quartz Countertops (Engineered Stone)
– Granite: scratch resistant surface, less prone to breaking
– Quartz: non-porous material that does not absorb liquid and bacteria.
– Granite tends to stain, so make sure you seal it with a granite sealer before use.
We recommend quartz countertops for a busy household and we recommend Granite for anyone looking to make a wow factor for their home.
Marble Countertops vs. Granite Countertops
Granite is a natural stone that has many benefits and will last much longer than marble. Granite is much more scratch-resistant, heat-resistant, waterproofing, and easy to clean than marble. Marble countertops require sealing every couple of years, whereas granite does not need any sealant treatments at all. Marble is more porous and will absorb liquids, oils, and bacteria, whereas granite does not. Marble also tends to break because it can chip or crack easier than granite.
We recommend granite over marble for your kitchen.
