Are you spending lots of money on slabs of granite when you only need a small piece? I hope not!!! Let me tell you about a smarter and better way, saving you tons of money. What happens to most folks is that they buy a full slab of granite to remodel their bathroom countertops and end up using only about 1/4 of the slab. The secret is that companies who work with granite have a ton of left over pieces at their shops. In fact many pieces are being disposed of because there is just no room to store them. What typically happens is that a company will work on a kitchen or some sort of project and have granite left over that the customer doesn't want or need. What you can do is locate small granite businesses and ask them about their extra pieces. You can usually come up with a great bargain. Sometimes you may pay for the installation and get the material free or even at a very low cost around ($50-200) but of course it depends on the material you choose. So let me break it down for you... YOU can SAVE up to a $1000 dollars by going through a small granite company and getting just the size piece you need or you can pay over $1000's of dollars and only use about 1/4 of what you paid for.
