Main Factors of What Do Granite Countertops Cost in Boston:
Quality of craftsmanship
The first major issue that is going to affect the price is the quality of countertop craftsmanship. The saying “you get what you pay for’ applies to almost every construction service. Generally, the lowest cost countertop providers also tend to be the lowest quality. Remember they have to make money to stay in business.
Granite slabs are expensive and they weigh close to 1000lbs each slab and require: quarrying, polishing, shipping, transporting to the factory, fabricating, polishing edges, sealing, delivery and installation. That is a lot of steps and most fabricators don’t buy directly from the quarries like New View Marble and Granite, so they have higher costs already. They tend to cut on the quality in order to offer a cheaper price when doesn’t end in a good final result for the customer.
Quality of Granite Slabs
The next major issue is the quality of the granite slabs themselves. Most people don’t know that granite slabs come in all sorts of different qualities. Even when they come from the same “block” they can differ greatly in the quality.
Quality is factored by Colors, Patterns, and Pits or Cracks. Generally, the “first choice” or best quality slabs are called “Grade A Granite”. However, they also cost more and also are the first to go from the “block” after it is cut into slabs.
New View Marble & Granite is a direct importer and we buy directly from the quarries. A major benefit of us buying direct, as well as having connections inside the quarries, we get the first choice of most granite “blocks”. We actually hand select the best quality stones and since we buy in such bulk we also get better pricing upfront. That combined with not paying any middle men (importer & warehouse) costs we are able to pass on that saving to our customers. Most fabricators cannot do that which means they have smaller margins to start to work with and in order for them to make a profit they tend to buy cheaper quality stones.
The stock available is a major effect on what do granite countertops cost in Boston. If you have the stock on hand and in large quantities, then prices will be better. If the color you are looking for is rare and there are only a few slabs in stock. The whole supply vs demand issue takes effect.
With New View, we tend to keep our prices set based off of what our cost of the slabs are. That means we don’t mark up just due to supply vs demand. If we have it in stock then it is first come first serve.
Left Over Stock or Single Slabs
However, we offer discounted prices on leftover slabs and remnants. Due to the fact that granite slabs are all different. The colors can vary from “block” to block. So when we have leftover slabs from a “Block” they tend to only work for smaller kitchens. If you have a kitchen that can fit on 1 slab or on what we have left then you can get a discount. Those granite slabs take up valuable space that we need for new slabs coming in. So it’s a win-win.
