Maryland Heights Granite Countertops Fabricator at Surface Encounters Explains the Cost of Granite vs Laminate
New countertops are a major investment in the home so life expectancy and cost are both important factors to consider when deciding what type of material is the best option
According to Surface Encounters granite vs laminate analysis, a laminate countertop, including installation, will cost a home owner between $25 and $50 per square foot, depending on the quality and design of the laminate. Professionally installed granite countertops can range from $50 to $100 dollars per square foot. Considering this information, it is amazing that Surface Encounters is currently installing new granite countertops for only $25.00 per square foot! Their half-off granite countertops special will be available for a limited time only, so area residents are putting in their orders now.
When DIY homeowners are making the granite vs laminate decision, they will consider durability, cost and labor. Laminate sheets are readily available and easy to install for $5 to $10 dollars a square foot, however these laminates often have a short life span and will need to be replaced long before granite countertops. Granite countertops are considered a one-time investment when purchased from the professional installers at Surface Encounters (http://www.halfoffgranite.com/).
Granite, a natural stone, is a very hard and durable material that has the reputation of lasting forever. It is stain resistant, heat tolerant and holds its natural luster indefinitely. “Granite often out lives the homeowner compared to laminates which are usually replaced every ten years,” notes one installer. Armed with this knowledge the granite vs laminate question becomes easy to answer.
The cost of an average granite countertops installation can range from $3500 to $5000 dollars and last a lifetime compared to laminate countertop which cost $1800 to $2500 but only lasts for 10 years. To the homeowner, this means one will spend a third more on laminate countertops in 30 years.
Along with the added expense of replacing laminate countertops numerous times, is the inconvenience of a non-functioning kitchen or bathroom during the remodeling process. Installing new countertops for an average kitchen can become a two or three week process depending on the contractor.
Surface Encounters laser measuring technique allows them to leave the kitchen intact and functional while the new granite countertops are being created. Their wise investment in automated machinery ensures high-quality, perfectly finished granite countertops.

It is clearly the best choice. Visit http://www.granitecountertopsmarylandheightsmo.com/ to learn more.
