"This is really a terrific company! Very responsive and professional. The final product is beautiful and the price was one of the best I found in the area. It" was the best among known providers and I did not want to use an unknown source for something this expensive when it has to be done right the first time. I highly recommend this company.

"Over all everything went well, but I was left with a little drywall damage that I felt the guys could have filled in for me. The company was great at accomodating" my schedule as a teacher. I felt that they could've had more choices in granite color, but I am pleasantly surprised how great the black granite looks. I will most likely use them again in the future.

Artificial (quartz) is cheaper, more uniform, has fewer voids to collect dirt, and is almost as abrasion and chip resistant.

Granite is more expensive, stains and collects dirt a little easier as a rule, and is slighly more chip resistant as a rule.

For durability, I would not rate one over the other - barring a 250 lb guy hopping up on it and cracking it, either is likely to outlive you. Selection is typically based on appearance - quartz tends to be more uniform looking and does not always do a good job of simulating the veining and variations that natural stone has.

?

Now some of the man made stone counters rival the real granite and othe stones without the maintainence of stone. There are many of them out there and it is more a choice of looks than anything else. Corian is still a strong choice of tops today and one advantage is it can be repaired when scratched on site. If you don't mind the maintainence you can't beat the looks of real stone though unless you need a few pieces to make up the top as the graining may be hard to match up. I am impressed though at how realistic some of the man made products have become. It is more an issue of what brand are available in your area. Most all are made the same way with crushed stone and basically an epoxy binder used to make the sheets.

AP Flooring & Granite provided excellent service and product from beginning to end. I found that although they are a small shop, they had a good selection of granite in several grades and a good variety of colors. Their prices were more reasonable than any other shop I considered. The granite was an excellent quality and exceeded my expectation. They arrived on time and worked long hours in order to avoid inconveniencing us with an 'out of commission' kitchen. They did everything beautifully, taking care to clean up after themselves. I found the workers to be trustworthy, polite, and respectful. The service included installing a sink. They did the plumbing necessary to adapt from a two sided sink to a deep single drain sink. I had found tile that I especially liked from a local dealer, so they installed my tile as the backsplash for a reasonable installation fee. I requested several small adjustments that they readily accommodated at no additional cost and in a timely manner. I cannot emphasize enough what a pleasant experience workng with this company has been, whether at the office or on location. I will most definitely use them in the future and recommend their services without reservation.

After the installation, I looked at the vanity top and undermount sink. The counter top fit well and I did not see anything wrong in the sink but did not touch anything because the caulk was still wet. When all the bathroom work was complete and no more workers needed to come in, I did a final cleaning. As I wiped the counter I found a small chip in a back corner and some strange splotches which could be seen depending on the angle and light. I felt something at the back of the sink while wiping it out which was a fine scratch in a vertical line. My general contractor inspected and called ProSource so they could contact R&L. It took several weeks and more than one follow up by my contractor through ProSource before
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
at R&L made contact with anyone.
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
, my contractor and I met in mid January.
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
said he would contact the counter top material representative about the odd color variance in the counter. He said the chip in the counter and scratch in the sink were not there at installation and blamed them on the plumber who installed the fixture and hooked up the plumbing. He said plumbers are often responsible for damage such as I found. I asked if there was a way to repair the chip and he said he would ask the rep. He did agree to replace the sink.
At the end of January, I met with
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
and the rep. The rep said that the color variance occurs when the protective cling sheet is separated from the stone material. He applied some solutions and cleaned the stone to make the splotches disappear. He recommended a way to smooth out the chip.
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
said he would be in touch about the sink.
From January to the end of June I did not hear from
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
. I left a phone message and he did return the call. He said he had recently seen a note on his desk about the sink replacement but had been busy. We agreed on
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
1 and he said he or the installers would confirm before arrival. No one called but two men appeared at the door on
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
1. They had no name badges or company shirts and no name on the van. I did open the door and one said they were there to replace the sink. I asked if they knew what to do about the chip in the counter and they both said no. I relayed what the manufacturer's rep told
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
and me. There was a loud announcement from the man under the sink at one point and when I asked what was going on, the other man glossed over it and said it was nothing. The sink was replaced and the counter had apparently been addressed. When I lightly ran my hand around the sink it felt smooth. Since the bathroom is used only by overnight guests, it was a couple of weeks later when I ran water in the sink while cleaning. As I put items under the sink I saw a small accumulation of water directly under the sink drain line. While running the water, I saw water slowly running down the drain line. While polishing the stainless steel sink faucet I found small indentations in the metal which were never there before.
I sent
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
an email explaining the leak and faucet damages. He replied that it had been too long since his men had installed the sink for him to do anything about either issue. In subsequent writings,
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
again blamed the original plumber and claimed that he informed ProSource that a plumber needed to meet his men when the sink was replaced. He also claimed that his men called him on the day of the service call to report that there was no plumber present and that he told them if I insisted, they could reconnect the sink pipes but he would not be responsible for any leaks. I checked with ProSource and the manager said they had not heard from him about the sink replacement or having a plumber present. Neither my contractor nor I had heard anything either. His men never mentioned the word plumber to me. My plumber fixed the drain line leak. He said two pipes were not tight. He applied a tape wrap to the threads on one pipe and then connected the two.

Since my new bathroom had been used only by family guests before the sink was replaced and I cleaned it after use, I can say with certainty that the faucet was not damaged before the R&L men replaced the sink. The drain pipe did not leak before the sink was replaced. There are several good reviews for R&L. None of them involve an issue with product or installation. There is one review where there was a big problem and
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
did nothing.
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
does not do well with problems. From my perspective, he does not take responsibility for ANY problems.

In an attempt to arbitrate this issue,
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
sent answers to my issues that were inaccurate and he sited conversations which cannot be proven. When
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
is hired directly by a customer, there is a contract. I had no contract with him and therefore had no way to know any stipulations which may appear in his contracts. He stated that the job was small and referred to the fact that it was not worth much money to him. His words indicated that he would not spend time on problems if he could avoid it.
Since his workers automatically reconnected the plumbing drain line when they installed the sink, I believe that the leak is the responsibility of R&L Stone and Marble. Since there were no workmen in the bathroom since completion except those sent by R&L Stone & Marble, I believe that the faucet damage is also their responsibility. I will amend this review if my costs for damages are reimbursed.

I am very pleased with how the whole process went and the absolutely beautiful results.
I looked in my area (Baltimore and Columbia, MD) for someone to install soapstone counters. I was not able to find anyone in the vicinity that was as knowledgeable and willing to work with us as
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
, the owner of
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
.
After several e-mail communications with him, my husband and I took the 2-hour drive to pick out our stone. He carries a slightly harder soapstone (PA Original) than some of the other places we visited, and that was what we wanted. He answered all our questions, and it was clear he was far more knowledgeable than anyone else we had talked to. We chose our stone, he stored it for several months until we were ready for installation.
If you are going to use soapstone, it is important to have a knowledgeable fabricator and installer, since it is different from other stones, such as granite, and many fabricators are really not that familiar with it. We found that the price from
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
was very close to, perhaps even a little less than, other less knowledgeable companies.
After our cabinets were installed (by someone else),
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
came out to the house to make a detailed template of the counter and fireplace and measure for the sink. It did take about 2 weeks for the fabrication. The installation was done professionally and went smoothly. There was a slight issue with regard to the closing of the cabinet door, but it was easily resolved. The installers were knowledge, polite, and cleaned up nicely.
The counters are absolutely gorgeous! The fabrication and installation were obviously done by true craftsmen. There is a seam in the fireplace surround that is almost impossible to find because such care was taken to match. The counters were cut to highlight the veining in the stone, and the finish is so beautiful that it practically begs to be touched.
Overall, we were very happy with the work and would highly recommend

Work went very well,
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
is extremely professional, and maintained communication with us at each stage of the process. His people were professional and offered suggestions for improvements as the work progressed.
The work entailed making a template for the new tops, setting up the actual slabs at
Athens Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
with the template superimposed and making sure that we approved cutting map. Subsequently, a visit to our home for the removal of the old tops and installation of the new ones was scheduled. The work started exactly on time and was essentially mess-free. The employees who installed the tops were very clean and professional. A slight glitch occurred during installation whereby they discovered that the existing cabinet tops were not level and the walls were not straight both requiring on-site modifications.
Overall, we were very pleased with the professionalism, quality and communications exhibited by all. The new counter-tops look great.

Everything went well. Cavalier described the scope of work and gave me a cost estimate and a "not to exceed" estimate and every time I've used them they delivered on their promise. I also appreciated their honesty in that during one occasion I asked for work to be done and they said that was not in their area of expertise. I'd much rather have someone be honest with me and do what they say they will do and if they can't do it, to let me know. Cavalier is definitely that company.

The counter system we shipped for a new store opening was destroyed by
the freight company. It was thought to be a total loss, and the client
would not have opened their new store on time. Cavalier was able to
assemble the damage parts into a working counter that worked great until
a replacement could be produced. Most companies would have walked away
from the pile of debris, but they took the time to make it work even
though the easy route would have been to just refuse the shipment.

That is the type of company I will work with every time.

After Rafa polished my floor it looked better than when it was installed. My installers never bothered to properly seal stone but Rafa took care of it.

Upon putting items into the cabinets after installation, discovered veneer was lifting off the doors! Made 6 phone calls and I am still waiting for someone to come repair or replace this mess!
