Adding Granite or Marble Countertops to Your Cabinets

We only offer solid wood countertops for your pieces, which may be fine for an office or a kitchen island. However, if you want to add beautiful granite or marble counters and live in the Baltimore-Washington area, we recommend the following store for its quality products and discount prices. Before you buy from Home Depot or Lowes, check them out. For smaller projects, like vanity tops, they offer marble, granite, and other remnants at the low discount price of $40 per square foot (plus the cost of cut-outs and installation).
