Myrtle Beach Granite Countertops

Finish types: Polished, sandblasted, brushed, flamed.

Origin: Granite is a igneous rock that contains at least 20% quartz by volume, but also some mica and feldspar. It’s mined from around the world, including quarries in India, Brazil, Norway, Italy and China. The largest granite quarry in the Unites States is located near Barre, Vermont.

Environmental Impact: Medium. Granite is durable and recyclable, but it requires large amounts of energy for transport, and mining is very resource intensive.

Pros: Each slab is unique, hard, durable, scratch-resistant, impervious to stains, heat, and water when sealed, relatively easy to clean, comes in all colors, still highly covetable with an even higher resale value.

Cons: Expensive, heavy, needs annual resealing, ubiquitous, “granite fatigue.”

Installation: Very labor-intensive, expensive.

Price range: $45-$400 per square foot. Varies depending on stone rarity, thickness, origin, and manufacturing labor. Buyer beware: this price often does not include hidden costs like installation, resealing, edge details, templating, and special finishes. A standard size kitchen can expect to pay $2,500+ for a renovation.

Granite Installation

Installing granite in your kitchen or bathroom is one of the best investments you can make for your home. However, it’s anything but easy. The process of choosing and installing granite can be very confusing and misleading. I’ve done a lot of granite installations and have learned how the process should work. Follow along here and get a few tips to help you maximize your investment as well.

1. Visit the showroom. Start by going to our granite showroom. Shown here is the showroom of my fabricator, Master Homes Flooring. At the showroom you will be able to see samples of available stones as well as learn about pricing. Of course, the price will differ depending on which stone you choose.

Typical price ranges per square foot:
Low end: $35 to $45
Middle: $55 to $60
Exotic: $65 and up

These estimates are for material and labor costs specifically in South Carolina. Sometimes edges and radius changes add to the cost, while cutouts for sinks and cooktops will always raise the price.

  1. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a
    little research on this. And he in fact bought me dinner due to the fact that I discovered it
    for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU
    for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about
    this topic here on your blog.

  2. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems
    with your website. It looks like some of the text in your content are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as
    well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Cheers

  3. Deference to website author, some good information.

  4. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp a lot about this,
    such as you wrote the ebook in it or something.

    I believe that you can do with a few % to pressure the message house a little bit, however instead
    of that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

  5. I was just seeking this information for a while.

    After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site.
    I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy
    that don’t rank this kind of informative web sites in top
    of the list. Generally the top websites are full of garbage.

  6. This is the perfect site for everyone who hopes to find out about this topic.
    You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really will
    need to?HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a subject that has been written about for many years.

    Wonderful stuff, just excellent!
