OUR CLIENTS SAY
Our main concern is turning a home into a sanctuary, a haven in which our customers feel relaxed and at peace.
I am very happy with the results and would recommend MKO Granite to anyone, anytime
My husband and I really appreciated the time the staff from MKO Granite in helping us choose the right stone for our fireplace. The old stone was an eyesore, so we wanted to make it pop.
My sister said MKO Granite did well with her kitchen remodel, so when I started planning mine, I asked them for an estimated.
The difficulty in installing stone depends on the project. The process actually starts with measuring the surface and estimating the square footage required. For countertops, it also involves creating a template to ensure that the cutouts will align properly. Stone slabs for countertops come in standard sizes, and a project may require one or more seams, so it is important to get the measurements and template right before fabrication. Once the stone is cut, there is no going back.
The support structure should also be constructed by a professional, especially when it come to countertops and tables, as stone surfaces are quite heavy. It requires quite a bit of prep work before the stones are ready for installation.
However, we do most of the heavy lifting offsite, and our skilled staff works quickly. You can expect minimal disruption in your home when you sign on with MKO Granite for your home stone needs.
The length of the process from start to finish will depend on the type and size of the project. If you are replacing countertops for a 10 x 10 kitchen, for example, it may take about 5 days from start to finish if the stone is readily available. We will give you an estimate of how long it will take before we start working once we have nailed down the specifics of your project.
The state of Maryland will only require a permit if your remodel will involve significant changes in the structure of the home, new plumbing, and/or major electrical work. This is not usually the case when putting in kitchen countertops, flooring, fireplace surrounds, or table tops. We will assist you in getting any permits if they are required by law.
Our payment accommodations include cash, checks, and credit cards.
We pass on the manufacturer’s or supplier’s warranty on the stone and other materials we use for a project to our customers. This can vary, depending on the manufacturer or supplier. We give a 100% satisfaction guarantee for all our services.
Color and pattern
Natural stones are on a as-is, where-is basis, which means what you see is what you get. On the other hand, each slab or tile is unique, so you can be sure no one else has exactly what you have. Quartz stone is engineered, so you can pretty much choose any color and pattern you need from our large catalog of models from different manufacturers. Of course, each slab or tile from a particular model will be exactly the same, which isn’t always a bad thing.
– The cost is always a major consideration in choosing a stone. In general, marble tends to be the most expensive, and limestone is the most affordable. The cost of the stone will also depend on the color and style you choose, and where it came from. Exotic and rare stones, of course, tend to be more expensive.
We always consider the customer’s preference, overall design, and budget when showing them a catalogue of the available stones. Ultimately, it all boils down to the customer’s choice.
