We find that many of our customers have their eye on granite countertops, and they’re also curious if they can handle doing the installation job themselves.
What we tell our customers at Marble Granite World is this: DIY installation for granite is possible, but we advise against it.
Call the Pros
This is a job that you should leave to the professionals. Here are eight reasons why:
1. You’ll have the opportunity to customize.
If you’re going to buy your granite slabs from your local home improvement store, you’ll notice that your options are limited. But if you check out a granite slab yard, you’ll find a wide variety of colors, finishes, shapes, and sizes.
2. You’ll save a lot of money.
Because there are so many customizable options at the granite slab yard, you don’t have to worry about paying for material that you won’t even use.
3. You can learn about your new countertop.
If you’re curious about something regarding your countertop, even after it’s installed, you can call up the pros who installed it and ask any questions you may have. At Marble Granite World, we love when our customers reach out to us.
4. You won’t have to do hard labor—or any labor at all.
Even if you do the DIY job with a few buddies, your team is more likely to damage the slab than the pros are, simply because you don’t have the same degree of training. Experienced granite installers know how to handle these materials, and they have the right skills and equipment to do so.
5. You won’t spend money on tools.
Granite installation requires special tools that not many people have lying around the house. And in most cases, these are tools you’ll only use one time—and they’re not cheap. You don’t need these tools creating clutter in your garage or weighing down your wallet.
6. The project will move fast.
At Marble Granite World, we guarantee a quick turnaround for our granite installation jobs. We have the right skills, background, and tools that the job needs, which means we can get it done quickly and efficiently. If you try to complete the installation yourself, you’re going to spend quite a bit of time learning how to do it. And you have to factor in your nine-to-five job as well.
7. You’ll avoid expensive mistakes.
While there’s nothing wrong with making mistakes in life, mistakes regarding your countertop won’t be cheap. There is no room for error in an installation, and every detail must be precise. When you work with the pros, they’ll make sure that’s the case.
8. You’re guaranteed a service warranty.
Even if you’re the best amateur in the world, your DIY project won’t compare to what the pros are able to do. After all, this is how they earn a living. They also offer a warranty for their services, so you can be sure the installation is done correctly and any issues will be taken care of.
