Granite from menards

bec1977March 5, 2013

Hi, I am a long time lurker, 1st time poster. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with granite from Menards (this store is in our area. Kinda like Lowes.). A friend is considering a bathroom remodel using their granite for the countertop of the vanity. Is it good quality? Some of the samples looked almost fake tho I know they're not. Just not quite the same as what I have seen at some of the granite yards. Thanks for your input.

One of my best bargains in our remodeling project was a Menards granite vanity top. I searched granite yards for a remnant and it was pricey(over $600) for a 22" x 30" top with an under mount sink and back and side splashes. My Menards top was about $149.00 for the same. Open the boxes and check them out before you buy because some will have imperfections. We chose Golden Delight.

Welcome to GW
I miss Menards. We dont have them here in PA.
It's probably a good deal if you don't have to have an exotic slab.

Yes, my girlfriend is going to have an awesome bathroom reno for a very reasonable price. Thanks corgimum for the advice about opening the boxes to check everything out first. Now she 's second- guessing a lot of the choices she made yesterday! We might be going back *sigh*. Oh well I second- guess everything too.

The menards in my area sells it, but many people need it alter or installed, and none of the local fabricators will touch it because of lack of quality in the stone.
