Granite Countertops Salt Lake City

Custom granite countertops are becoming a standard in most American households and are consistently ranked as one of the best ways to increase the value of your home. They are easy to maintain and are the most durable surface you can use for kitchen countertops. You can never go wrong with adding granite countertops to your home. Standard granite countertops cost a specific amount per square foot installed, depending on the type of granite selected and the difficulty of installation. Granite Countertop installation and fabrication costs can significantly affect the final price of your new granite countertops. Generally, the more complex the shape of the countertop and particularly the shape of the finished countertop edges, the higher the price will be. Fortunately, a standard polished edge makes an excellent appearance and most customers choose this standard. We have several custom granite countertop edge patterns. Granite countertops are usually polished to a high gloss finish. The price of the granite countertop includes the cost of transportation, making field measurements and templates, cutting, polishing, delivery, and final installation. The total material required is determined by the layout and the amount of waste. The fabricator will try to lay out each job so as to minimize waste yet maximize the natural beauty of the veining and pattern. Keep in mind that sink and cook top cutouts, or waste from curves are counted in the square footage cost.

Travertine Tile Salt Lake City

Travertine tiles are one of the many stone tiling options available in today’s market. Whether you opt to install travertine wall tiles or install the tiles on the floor, the installation process is similar. In both instances, you need to plan how you want to lay out the tiles to feature the natural veins and texture of the travertine stone. As you plan your stone layout, keep in mind that travertine tiles that have a lot of veining may be structurally weaker than those with fewer veins. It’s a good idea to save those stones for border pieces or pieces that you need to cut.

These mistakes include: failure to include material for self edge and/or backsplash, using exact countertop square inches to determine the number of tiles, and measuring the countertop incorrectly. However, the most common mistake made by homeowners (and sometimes even granite tile installers) is just not ordering enough tile. The result is a shortage of tiles or machined edges necessary to complete the installation.

Travertine Tile Installation Experts

Travertine as a building material has been in use for thousands of years. This organic rock is really a form of limestone; however, being made mostly of calcium carbonate, travertine is softer than typical limestone

Travertine Floor Tile

Travertine is only then formed when water deposits from rivers, lakes, geysers and ground water supplies erode the limestone until it gathers its distinct patterns. These beautiful patterns are caused by organic compounds decaying and iron deposits eroding.
