Cost to cut marble & granite vanity tops
We are renovating 3 bathrooms (master, kids and powder) and went to the stone fabricator to look at some Carara marble remnants for vanity tops. We found a remnant large enough for 2 vanities 36" each. His quote was $850 without installation or $950 with installation total for both. We then went to ReStore and found 3 vanity tops 49" inches each for $99 each (2 were marble and 1 black granite which we liked for kids bathroom). They already have cut outs for sinks and faucets. The problem is that it's too big and has to be cut to 36". The same stone fabricator told us it would be $300 per top to cut and polish edges and install the undermount sinks, which completely defeats the purpose of buying the tops at ReStore. Does this seem reasonable to you? What are our chances of finding someone who would do it for less? Should we just give up, go back to the fabricator and purchase those marble remnant vanity tops for $425 each? We are in NY/Long Island area if that matters in terms of pricing.
