What commission do Big Box stores take on granite or cabinets?
We have had quotes from both Home Depot and Lowes for all kinds of upgrades. They send a company out to give you a quote. That company measures and gives you a pitch. If you buy today, you get XX discount... You know how that goes!
If you go direct to a granite fabricator, you will get it for less. It's not always possible to go direct to a cabinet maker who works with the Big Box stores because they usually have contracts.
What say you?
