Help me sort this out...granite plus fabrication price
I have been to several stone yards - some that just sell material and some that sell and fabricate. I am going with a fairly straightforward black granite (leather) with a single cutout for sink in 4x8 island and two small perimeter counters. Total of about 45sf.
The best combination of material and fabrication - considering price and quality - was from a source that claimed to do the black at $49sf installed. Great - until I took the layout in for final quote and turns out it will be more like $65sf installed.
I know I need to ask them why this is but I thought I would run this by you all first to see if you can provide insight and expertise. Thanks in advance!
