Granite quote - 2 cm vs. 3 cm granite
We've just gotten a quote for our kitchen granite. There are two options listed, one is for 3 cm slabs, the other is for 2 cm slabs plus "Laminated Edge for 2 cm Material - Quarter Round - P (5/16'' radius top edge & 1/8'' bevel bottom edge)"
Can anyone help me interpret this? The 3 cm slab quote is about 25% more than the 2 cm plus laminated edge quote. I know I've read that 3 cm is more desirable, but I don't really know why. Is it worth the extra cost? What are the benefits?
