Questions to Ask When Shopping for Granite Countertops in San Diego

Granite countertops are extremely popular with homeowners and for good reason. Not only are they beautiful, but can also offer a lifetime of durability. If you’ve decided to install a granite slab in your kitchen or bathroom but aren’t sure how to begin the process of choosing one, this post is for you!

Selecting a reputable wholesaler as a source for your San Diego granite countertops as well as selecting a top-quality granite slab, can make or break your remodeling project. Fortunately, BEG can help you every step of the way! Here are a few questions that homeowners often ask before making that important investment.

Can You Choose the Exact Slab You Want?

You should be able to choose the exact slab that will be installed in your home. After all, the natural variation between granite slabs means that no two are alike, even if they are in the same shipment. A sales consultant at Brazilian Exotic Granite will tag the granite countertops you choose, so you’re guaranteed to get the one you want.

Are There Different Finishes and Edge Treatments Available?

Many granite slabs are available with different finishes, such as polished, honed, or brushed. Your slab can also be customized with a variety of edge treatments.

Do Granite Countertops Need Sealing?

All natural stones are porous, which means they have tiny pores that absorb liquids. That includes granite, although its hardness means it may need sealing less often than other types of stone countertops. Some granite suppliers will deliver your slab unsealed, so you need to apply its yourself. Many, however, will seal the slab in advance. Make sure you know what to expect when you order your countertop.

References and Past Projects

Some granite slab suppliers have their own employees to do installations; others may use contractors. Make sure you have a reputable, experienced installer by checking their references and past projects. Excellent customer service and experienced installers are two reasons BEG is Southern California’s favorite granite supplier!
