Scrap Granite pieces cheaper? Really?
I thought I've heard I could get a piece of scrap granite for a great savings/bargain price. I've gone to 2 places and they both say I have to buy a big piece of granite for about $280 and the cost of finish edges (polish?) would be about $500 for anything I wanted. I would need to supply the template and install myself. I need 3 pieces: a shower seat top, pony wall top and a piece for the thresh hold of shower door. (I actually preferred the color of the quartz, so the price is for that.)
Am I asking the wrong questions or going to wrong places (tile store)? Any suggestions on getting a better price then $800?
