Do you live in the Big “D” and want to update your bathroom or kitchen with the warm shine of granite? Whether you are entertaining during a Cowboys game or eating your feelings after another Rangers loss, you will at least have a welcoming room to hang out in. Granite is a relatively easy and cheap way to update countertops, from old Formica to beautiful stone. It is one of the most regularly used home improvement materials in today’s market. So where do you go to find the best granite countertops Dallas retailers you ask?
Alright, I’m ready to start perusing showrooms, where do I go?
Saddle on up and take your pick of about one hundred and thirty fabricators and/or retailers in the greater Dallas Area. The retailers that received the best reviews from online customer reviews include; Alluring Stone, Texas Best Flooring Company Inc., Rockywood Stone & Cabinets and Foxy Granite & Marble. These retailers received five star ratings from customers who tried them out on their home improvement rodeo and were happy they did! The great thing about Dallas, other than the nightlife, is that there are actually more wholesale and discount stores than there are regular granite retailers! That’s right there are about one hundred and eighty-one discount granite retailers in the “D” and the ones who were rated highest per customer reviews are; Texas Best Flooring Company, Inc., Ston Expressions, Moreno Granite and Stone Age Granite-Marble-Tile. So as you can see, the choices are practically endless. The great thing about wholesale and discount retailers is that their prices are usually a bit cheaper than other retailers and they usually still offer installation. The only downside, and if you are flexible, not a problem at all, is that discount retailers tend to have less of a selection and slightly lower quality granite, which still turns out beautiful.
Can I install the granite myself or do I need to pay someone to do it for me?
A majority of retailers and fabricators will offer installment. They either have a team of experienced installers or general contractors that can assist you in installing and beautifying your kitchen or bath. Installation that is done by the retailer is typically included in the price of the granite per square foot. The most highly rated installers, who have a five start score, based on online reviews from customers include; Rockywood Stone & Granite, Ston Expressions, Texas Best Flooring Company and Imagist One. You can do-it-yourself, if you have the right tools, patience and handy-man ability! This can be a daunting task for a novice, as special tools are needed to cut and polish the granite. If something goes awry, you are the one who has to fix it (or heaven forbid start over completely). Finally, especially if you are doing a complete overhaul of your bath or kitchen, by not only updating it with granite countertops, but replacing cabinets and fixtures, you could have an independent contractor do it. Take your time researching contractors to make sure you find a reputable one with good BBB standings and great reviews.
How much is this going to cost me?
