“Prefab” countertops can save homeowners a lot of money on their natural stone countertops. However, there’s some confusion about prefabricated countertops — some people believe the word “prefab” means it’s not real stone, or means sacrificing some of the luxurious beauty of marble or granite.
The word “prefab” simply means that much of the finishing work has already been completed before it’s purchased. Because there’s no customization involved, besides cutting it on-site to fit the area for installation, it’s a great value.
