There are typically three kinds of buyers no matter what product or service is being bought. The people that money isn’t an object or matter how much they spend. The people that like nicer things, but don’t want to spend a fortune on it. Then there are the people that want to save as much as possible on anything they buy either because they can’t afford more or because they just like to save. All three are completely fine, especially if the person is happy after the purchase. Fortunately, when it comes to purchasing stone countertops, Precision Countertops and Tile can help all three types of buyers.
Regardless of where you buy your countertops, you will get a better deal on stock material than non-stock. It makes perfect sense if you think about it. Granite and Quartz countertops are sold from the manufacturers in whole slabs. Most of the time, a kitchen or bathroom will not use 100% of the slabs required for the job. No fabricator wants to eat the cost of the leftover portion of a slab. Imagine if your kitchen needs 1.2 slabs. A slab can cost $1000 to $10,000, depending on the material. If 80% of a slab is left over, then the fabricator would be eating $800-$8,000. No one’s going to do that, so they charge $115-200 per square foot. The leftover portion of the slab is of little use in the inventory if no other customer wants it, so it ends up being sold off as a remnant at a reduced price. Also, the fabricator is not going to be interested in trying to sell the remaining slab as it is likely not going to be enough to finish a job. If you buy stock granite or quartz for your countertops, you will save on waste and your overall expenses.
If you buy from stock colors, you’re buying material that we sell often. As a result, the leftover material from your job can easily be used on another job. As a result, you only pay for your actual square footage. Why not only pay for what you need?
