Solid Surface Granite Countertops



We can fabricate and install any of the hundreds of different granite colors on your countertops. To simplify your granite search, we've listed and priced out twenty six of the most popular and common granite colors below.

 

If the specific granite you want is not shown below, contact us with the granite's name and the details of your project, and we'll give you a price quote!

 

You can also visit one of our many granite suppliers and schedule a tour of their granite warehouses to see a wider selection of the many different granite colors.

The Process


First, bring us a drawing and measurements of your countertops. Indicate all cut-outs for sinks or cook tops, which edges will be exposed (and need to be finished), which edges are against walls, and any other relevant notes. Based on your drawing, we’ll be able to give you a price quote.

After you approve the quote, we’ll schedule a template date so the installer can create accurate measurements of your cabinets, sinks, and/or cook tops.

Finally, at the install date 4-10 business days later, your new countertops will be installed!

Choose your Material from Our Price List


These price groups include the cost of the granite slab(s), fabrication, installation, and hole cut-outs for self-rimming sinks. If you want pricing on a specific granite not listed here, contact us and we'll give you pricing!

 

Because natural stone is a product of nature, no two slabs are exactly alike, and we highly recommend seeing the material in person before making purchasing decisions. 

 

All colors are polished unless otherwise marked.

 

Some edge details and undermount sinks will add to the cost of the overall installation; see below for details.

 

Prices do not include removal of old countertops. We typically charge between $200-$500 to remove and dispose of a laminate or tile countertop.

 

Countertops smaller than 10 square feet will be charged the same as a 10 square foot installation.

Natural stone has natural variation; no two pieces are exactly alike. 

The pictures in the links are to show color tendencies only, and your countertop may differ from what is shown. If you are concerned about the color or pattern of your countertop, please discuss your concerns with a Tile Lines associate before we schedule a template. We can provide you with physical samples and arrange for you to see your countertop material before you finalize your decision.

 

For more colors, consider quartz counters.


Select an Edge Profile


Four basic edge profile options (eased, half-bullnose, quarter round, and crescent) are included in your installation price.

Other edge profile options, such as full bullnose and ogee, are an additional $12.50 per lineal foot.

Pick your Sink


The cost of cut-outs for self-rimming sinks is included in the installation price.

If you choose an undermount sink, the price for polishing the edge of the sink cut-out is $249. The installers will also attach the sink to the underside of the countertop during installation.


Note: Our installers aren’t plumbers; you’ll be responsible for hooking your pipes up to the sink(s) after your countertops are installed.

 

We sell two shapes of white porcelain undermount bathroom sinks for just $59.95 each! Click the picture to see details.

Considering a Granite Backsplash?


Solid granite backsplashes follow the same per square foot pricing as countertops.

Think 3cm (appx. 1.25") is too thick for a backsplash? If your backsplash is 6" tall or shorter, the installers can plane it down to 2cm (appx. .75") for an additional $12.50 per lineal foot.

Note: The top of the backsplash will always be a flat polish.


Terms and Conditions for our Granite Program

All of the materials relevant to templating (cabinets, faucets, sinks, and/or cook tops) will need to be on-site for measuring. Removal of old countertop material is the homeowner’s responsibility and must be completed prior to templating.

Any major discrepancies between your original measurements and the template measurements will result in a price adjustment.

Install area limited to King County and Pierce County. A trip charge may be applied to countertop installations outside of King or Pierce County.

What about Radon in granite? Is granite a health risk?


The short answer: Yes, granite emits radon, but not enough to be harmful. 

 

The long answer: Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas emitted by a wide range of natural stones, soil, and water. It seeps into the air and, in large quantities, can cause health issues and cancer.

 

Over the past few decades, there has been a lot of talk and concerns about the levels of radon gas emitted by granite tiles and countertops. 

 

The truth is: Yes, granite emits radon. But don't swear off the stone just yet: dozens of studies by the EPA, the American Association of Radon Scientists & Technologists, the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, and others have measured the radon output of hundreds of granite colors, and found radon levels to be far, far below the level EPA considers harmful. Granite countertops are harmless. Claims of unacceptably high radon output have been criticized. The soil under your house is going to emit far more radon than the granite slab in your kitchen, as illustrated in the chart below.

Pie chart graph on Radon sources: almost 70% is from soil, only 2.5% is from building materials such as granite.
This chart from the Marble Institute of America illustrates the sources of radon in the air we breathe. Less than 3% comes from building materials such as granite!

The Marble Institute of America, the authority on stone reasearch and knowledge for construction in the US, published a fact sheet on Granite and Radon, and continually publishes the findings of scientific research into the safety of natural stone.

 

We recommend the Safe Granite Blog for more links, studies, and information about radon levels and granite.

 

If you are still concerned about radon levels, you should have your overall air quality tested by a reputable radon testing organization.
