Does this sound reasonable for Bianco Antico?
After I complained to the builder about not being able to get Bianco Antico granite, and being given the run around, they have decided to allow me (sarcasm) to get what I want. But the price they quoted is $8250.00. They have to get it from a different place, since they don't 'have it'. I asked for an Ogee edge on the island only, to help make up for that cost. No go.
They will not give me the square footage of the countertops. They will not confirm if it really is BA, or a similiar name granite. They will not tell me where they are getting it from, so I can see a sample.
I have verbal quotes for that granite, one is 3999 for 55 sq ft, then 99 a foot after that. Even Home Depot charges 65 a sq ft. But I don't know how much the builder is ripping me off, since they won't give me the sq ft needed.
My DH says suck it up and accecpt the charges. It will be easier to have it installed before the gas cooktop, and the apron front sink. Also, then we don't have to waste the standard granite that comes with the kitchen.
I know if we don't do it now, it will be 5-10 years before we change it. It just seems high to me.
What do you think?
