I really want granite but I am afraid of staining? How often do I need to seal it and how do I maintain it?
All stones have different absorbency rates. There are some granites with an absorbency rate so low it doesn't need to be sealed. When selecting your stone, our office will advise you of this in more detail. For those that need sealer, annual application should be enough if you are using a quality sealer. Daily cleaning can be done with dishwashing detergent and warm water. You can buy specialty cleaners that may add extra stain protection or surface enhancer, but it is not necessary.

I've been seeing a lot of marble kitchen countertops on design shows. Are they okay to use in kitchens?
Unfortunately, the design shows are utilizing the countertops for just that − the design. They are not thinking about the functionality and longevity of the materials. Marble, a very soft and porous surface, cannot handle the daily use a kitchen receives. Scratches and staining would always be a concern. Over time, those hairline scratches will reflect a large dull area that will have to be refinished. However some people do enjoy the aged/worn look marble can provide. Careful consideration will help decide which is right for you.
There are so many choices when choosing a fabricator. How does this compare to a retail store and do you price match your competitors?
By coming directly to a fabricator, you are eliminating the middleman that retail stores use − thus saving you money. At Bedrock Marble & Granite, we offer competitive pricing without sacrificing good customer service. From design to installation, we will devote the necessary time needed to make sure you get the Dallas countertops you will be happy with. We will consider competitor pricing; however, we can't always guarantee that we can match it. As premier Dallas remodelers, we utilize some of the most advanced production machinery to ensure you are getting a quality product that will leave a lasting impression. We also carry the general liability insurance as well as employing a full staff to guarantee your job gets done right the first time!
How long can expect a new countertop project to take?
Normally, once we have completed templates, your new countertops will be installed within 7-10 business days. This schedule can vary, but we work hard to accommodate your schedule. An average installation can last one day, around 5-7 hours long.
What does my square-foot cost include?
You will find some competitors that advertise extremely low prices. However, these are usually introductory pricing. We never have hidden cost, and our pricing includes templating, fabricating, installing with a standard edge profile (6 different options). Rounded corners are also complimentary. You will find that our square-foot price may vary from a competitor but our total price and what's included is most important.
I 'm not ready for new countertops yet, but I would like to establish a budget. How can I get a price?
You can schedule to have measurements done FREE of charge. Or for faster service, fax or email your cabinet sizes and layout for immediate pricing. Even though final decisions such as colors and sinks may not be decided, this is enough to get a workable budget established. For layout/cabinet drawing examples, please click here. You can provide these with simple hand drawings. Please remember to note areas such as sinks, cooktop and/or bartop areas.
