When shopping for natural stone, consumers will quickly get a sense of the “per square foot” cost of the various stone options. Unfortunately, this is only part of the equation. Edge details, installation, and fabrication are a major factor in the finished cost of your new countertops. A recent study by the Marble Institute of America shows that Big-Box store stone is often more expensive than products purchased through specialty fabricators.
Countertops have come a long way in terms of green options. Recycled glass, paper-based-composites, and fly-ash concrete are just a few “green” materials available in today’s engineered composites. And, if you’re looking for more “green” natural stones, there are many sustainably quarried stones to choose from.
