Why is this slab 4x the price!?
We're doing a master bath remodel and the fabricator gave us a price of around $2,700.00 for the tub deck, surround and countertops. This is using their lower cost granite, such as Absolute Black.
I decided we would like to use Ocean Blue which I was able to view in Dallas at Arizona Tile.
When I asked the fabricator about this, they said the price would go up over $10,000.00.
We're about a six hour drive away from the Arizona Tile warehouse. Is the material cost plus transportation reasonable at $7,500 additional?
From what I gather, Ocean Blue is a higher end slab but not by any means the most expense. What gives?
