East China Homeowners Compare Granite and Laminate Countertops by Surface Encounters
Though a laminate countertop is often cheaper and more readily available at local building supply companies, homeowners have discovered granite countertops by Surface Encounters are a better value in the long run
Cost is another factor when people compare granite and laminate countertop material. A professionally installed laminate countertop can cost between $25 and $50 per square foot. The price depends on the quality and design of the laminate. Granite countertops which are professionally installed can range from $50 to $100 dollars per square foot. Though twice the price, granite countertops will last a lifetime where the laminate countertops will need to be replaced in 5 to 10 years.

Now, compare granite and laminate and discover that price is no longer an issue. Surface Encounters’ half off granite countertops special will be offered for a limited time only, so area residents are placing their orders now.
When DIY enthusiasts compare granite and laminate, ease of installation is often a factor. For the do-it-yourselfer 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, so even the DIYer will hire it done to save time and money while eliminating errors that can adversely affect the final results.
When local home remodeling experts compare granite and laminate, they discover that granite, a natural stone, is a very hard and durable material. 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 it becomes easy to see why granite countertops are the better value in the long run.
The average cost of new granite countertops installation can range from $3500 to $5000 dollars and last a lifetime compared to laminate countertops 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 their thirty years of homeownership.
Along with the added expense of replacing laminate countertops numerous times, there is also the inconvenience of a kitchen or bathroom that is inoperable during the remodeling process. Often changing or updating countertops for an average kitchen can become a two or three week process depending on the contractor.
