The estimate we got (in central Texas) was $70 fabricated and installed (that doesn't include a $200 charge for the undermount sink). That was with a standard edge also. We got almost the same price for soapstone so we're going with soapstone (to be installed tomorrow! I'm excited but nervous.)

Factors that make a difference in pricing include location (#1 factor) whether 2 cm or 3 cm material is used, edge treatments, how many cut outs and the type and mounting specifics of the sink. The material itself runs about $60-$90 a square foot, depending on color class. The only way to know specifically what your kitchen counters in any material will cost is to get specific complete quotes from fabricators. Here, "average" kitchens cost between $4-5K. not including the sink, faucet, disposal, or other items mounted into the countertop. Your location and material costs will obviously be different.

The Caesarstone we got the $70/sf quote for was 3 cm, honed Raven, with only the one sink cutout for an undermount sink. The material would have been in 3 or 4 separate pieces if that makes a difference.

sw I'm so jealous - we're in boston (hence my name) and I priced raven honed from 10 different stores...the lowest was $80/ft installed, the highest $110/sf!!!

Thanks all for the rough idea.
But can someone please tell me what the first response
"bump" meant. Did I ignore some protocol or something?

"Bump" means someone is posting so the thread will move up, "bumping" it up. They didn't have an answer (or would have answered), but were doing you a favor so more people would see your thread.

Hi joebayarea,
Any progress in your research you're willing to post? I'm looking for it in the Bay area too. I am actually considering using it for a full backsplash depending on pricing.

Does anyone have a clue about Caesarstone's Concetto collection? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the White Quartz Concetto but heard that it is $600 a sq.ft!! Any truth to that?

Here is a link that might be useful: White Quartz Concetto Collection

If you are in the Bay Area, you might actually want to head to San Leandro, there is a Ceasarstone outlet there, call ahead to make an appointment. My husband and I went several weeks ago and saw some slabs (didn't have the one we loved in production anymore---the peppercorn--we went with granite). They might be willing to sell it to you directly and save you $$$. You could also ask them if they recommend any fabricators.

We used the highest end stuff, needed 2 slabs, and did a mitered edge. We paid $5500 I think, for 60 square feet. Obviously cost was not much of a factor for us -- we knew we were splurging, and wanted a fabricator with a good reputation.

We are in the East Bay area, in Pleasanton, but our fabricator is up in towards Benicia/Concord. Email me privately if you want me to track down the fabricator's contact information.

If you are uncertain that you will be happy, let me reassure you that we love ours, and we have had no problems with staining, etching, or chipping at all. Our seams are absolutely invisible. We love it!

Are you a Costco member? If so, check out their website (search for "countertops" on the home page). When I looked into it they were much cheaper than the big box stores around here.
