Granite Tile Countertops anyone??
Well I spent all day pricing granite and the cheapest I could find is $4700/installed for 66 sq feet. DH does not want to spend that much. So I decided to stop at The Tile Shop and I really liked their Verde Butterfly 24x24 granite tile.They showed it in a kitchen display with a 1/16th grout line, but they also said they could be butted together and the bevel edge filled with a silicone epoxy (black). So I got an estimate on the total cost and it was $2100 for the granite tile, mortar, silicone, edge pieces, etc. I really don't mind the look, especially ungrouted. I stopped at a Granite Transformations as well to check out the overlay type of granite and the cost was still $4700. I was really surprised about that. Anyway....does anyone here have a granite tile countertop?? Is this something I should stay away from or should I go for it? If I don't get this I will go back to Formica which is $2000/installed.
