Choosing the Right Company for Denver Granite Installation

What You Should Know About Choosing the Right Company for Denver Granite Installation
When you have decided to invest in a natural stone countertop, such as Denver granite, you want to make sure the job is done the right way. It’s crucial that you pick the right installer for such a large investment in your home. Here are some tips to make sure your project goes smoothly, from beginning to end, because you have chosen an installer you can trust.

Don’t Buy a Slab Sight Unseen

If an installer doesn’t want you to see the stone before installing it, this is a red flag. You should have ample opportunity to see the entire slab to ensure there are no surprises. With granite, there can be pitting, veins, and blotching you might not like. If a company wants you to choose your granite from a picture, you should probably move on to another company.

Get Bids From Three Natural Stone Installers

Find someone to work with that you will be comfortable with and who is up front with you about everything. You don’t necessarily want to go with the cheapest installer—or the most expensive. Check online review, check their references, and take a look at work they have done for previous customers. Ask about their reliability and professionalism from past clients. Read How to Check Your Contractor’s References Before a Project ahead of time so you know how to handle this necessary step.

Make Sure You Are Getting Good Quality Stone

If a bid comes in lower than the others, this might mean you are getting a lower quality of granite. Low-grade granite, also called commercial granite, can have unattractive flaws in it. It might also be a thinner cut, which is why the bid probably came in cheaper.

Find Out How They Work

You want to hire an installer that has up-to-date equipment that ensure accurate, clean cuts and lovely seams. Some installers try to save time—and labor costs—by putting the seam where the sink is cut out, but this frequently doesn’t give the most polished finish.

Don’t Get Too Caught Up in Price

Everyone wants to stay within budget, but price is usually not the best way to make a decision. The old adage, “you get what you pay for” is an old adage for a reason—it’s often true.
