Sealing granite countertops is a DIY project even a novice DIYer can handle. Follow these step-by-step instructions (with pictures) to protect your countertops.
Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.
Want to update your bathroom without leaving it outdated in a decade? Consider these bathroom remodel ideas for counters, colors and style that transcend time.
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.
Countertop Installation reviews in North Augusta
we awarded them the contract. There was a delay of 10 days between the demolition and the final installation, but we saw their
fabrication plant, and understand the reason for the delay .
The job was completed on schedule and a great job.
After the job was done we wanted someone to come out and
The end result is a beautiful job well done. Thank you
The demolition of the existing shower, floor, and bathtub surround went well. They were neat and did not leave debris. They did not track a lot of debris through the bedroom or rest of house. They were not too noisy. They cleaned up after themselves daily. They did damaged the towel bar in the bath tub area. We will need to replace that.
5. SHOWER SYSTEM INSTALLATION
The preparation of the plumbing and installation of the shower system went well. We did not get the exact version of the Delta Shower System we had requested. The contractor's supplier could not provide it because the manufacturer discontinued the specific diverter we wanted. The complete system as we requested it was available through several on-line plumbing suppliers with a quick delivery. We told the contractor where it could be obtained. The parts came in piecemeal. Not sure if it was their ordering or the supplier they used. This had a minor impact on the preparation for tiling. Overall good grades for this work. We accepted the shower system as supplied.
Installation of the shower
7. SHOWER NICHE
The niche for the shower alcove was built as we requested it. The contractor made it tall enough to accomodate most brands of shampoo. We will give them good grades for this.
8. TILE WORK
Floor: The preparation of the floor for tiling was adequate. They used a leveling mixture to cover the imperfections in the existing floor. It was put down as the floor tile was laid. We believe it should have been put down on the entire floor so that the surface was uniformly level. Floor tiling was OK, not great. The tiles are not evenly laid and grout lines are not even. I don't believe spacers were used. Tile cutting was not square were it needed to be. There were variations from one
Walls and Surround: The overall preparation of the areas to be tiled was not good. The contractor installed backer board in the shower alcove and tub surround. The problem was that the backer board was not thick enough to meet the existing dry wall above the area to be tiled. It was off by 1/4 to 3/8 inches. We pointed this out to the contractor. He said he would add extra
We had contracted for a row of decorative trim in the shower and tub surround. We provided the decorative tiles. The decorative tiles were thinner than the 12 x 12 and bullnose tiles. The contractor tried twice to
The tile work in general was not good. Tiles were cut uneven, varying from 1/4 to nearly a half inch off. In the corners the tiles sometimes touch each at the top (or bottom) and didn't butt well. Because the tiles were individually buttered some jutted out from oneanother. Tiles were put up using spacers and slivers of cardboard. This approach resulted in uneven spacing between rows of tiles.
There was no planning of the tile work. Thus, the tile laying was not uniform from a center line along the back wall. The niche is not square. The upper
9. Baseboard and Shoe & Finish Work: This was well done. Great miters. Repair of the wall near the shower was awful. The shoe was used to cover up poor cuts in the floor tiles.
10. Door: The Master Bath shower door was supposed to be a semi-frameless pivot pin hinged door. We were told on the day that it was to be installed they couldn't get it. It would be two-three weeks. They suggested we use a bypass sliding glass door, which they could get. We reluctantly agreed to this change. The door we got was a
Some final thoughts: The workers were at all times clean and neat. They were pleasant and courteous. The staff complained to the owner we interferred with their work. We don't consider asking questions and pointing out problems, interference. They did ignore some of our suggestions or requests. The job took longer than we expected. The company offered to repair a small area of wall near the shower. They did offer to get us the door we wanted, but suggested it would cost us extra. What is disturbing is that the company president thought this was an acceptible quality of workmanship and did not offer to fix any of the tile problems. He took $100 off the bill because they did not install a grab bar which was part of the contract. We plan to hire another contractor to fix the tiling that we are not happy with.
