To help you choose a supplier and installer for your kitchen or bathroom countertops once you’re ready, here are a few things you should consider when conducting your search and making your final choice.

Get recommendations

It may be that a friend or family member has recently had stone countertops installed in their house. If this is the case, you can ask them which supplier and installer they used, what their experience was with them, and whether they’d recommend them. If they weren’t happy with the company’s service or results, then you might want to cross them off your list.

The right product

When looking for a countertop supplier, the most basic requirement is that they stock the type of stone that you have chosen for your kitchen or bathroom. Ask any potential suppliers about their products and ask to see their stock to check that it meets your standards.

The right price

Obviously, budget is a big factor as well when choosing a countertop supplier and installer. Request estimates from the contractors you are considering so you can compare their offerings. If you let the contractors know that you are getting estimates from multiple companies, then they may be more likely to give you a competitive deal to win your custom.

Check their credentials

It’s not all about price, of course; you don’t want to just go for the cheapest option if they won’t provide the quality. Check if they have any professional accreditations to assure you of their credibility. It is also worth asking to see examples of their previous work to prove the quality of their service, as well as reviews and testimonials from past customers. Online review sites such as Yelp.com can help you see the good and bad of potential contractors.
