Ask me question about Kitchen&Bath counter top

Nowadays, people always want a better looking kitchen and bath countertop. Since I work in a countertop factory, I can give you some idea about your countertop that has a better overall looking for your kitchen and bath. (Quartz & granite) As well as the estimate cost of the color. Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

Hi, I've purchased a home from a builder, scheduled to be completed in May 2017. I'd like to upgrade the bathroom vanities (comes with laminate) to quartz with undermounted sink and not sure if I should get that done through the builder or have it done after closing.
Would you be able to provide me with an estimate for the countertop, undermounted sink, plumbing/installation costs.

Master Ensuite: double sink, approx 6.5' length
Bathroom 2: double sink, approx 6.5' length
Bathroom 3: double sink, approx 5.5' length

The master ensuite comes with a double sink, so the plumbing should already be in place for that. The other 2 bathrooms come standard with single sink. Do we need to take the double sink upgrades from the builder in order to have the plumbing put in place, or can the plumbing be done easily afterwards?

I myself actually make quartz and granite product. Quartz usually from $35&up to $80/sqft (wholesale price)
Granite from about $35 to unlimited(wholesale price as well) And it really depends on your kitchen layout etc, you can inbox me for a quote for your kitchen!

Here's a question... Is there any difference in the Caeserstone you get from a kitchen and bath place vs. Ikea? For the same material name? Does the thickness or anything else vary, typically?

The stone itself has no big difference, but sometimes the color maybe a little bit off because they probably use different rack of slab(the color always change over time); however you cant even notice the difference. And the only difference is that they use different fabricator and the edge and cut out is a little bit different.

I'm looking to get a counter-height table made with quartz on top. Any idea what the best way of getting this built?

Ideal dimensions: 36'' H x 48'' L x 48'' W
This is actually a small table. Go a kitchen and bath place, ask them if they have something like that in their show room. Or go IKEA see if they have the size(pre-made)

If you want to change from one sink to two sink, you should see if your vanity allows you to do so. I'd just you talk to your builder because you dont want to remove and re-install. Get the job done first time.

When you are remodelling a kitchen and installing a quartz or granite countertop, is it possible to create a countertop that is deeper (more space front to back and cupboards will be deeper) or are the depths standardized?

It depends on your cabinet which usually is standard 24 inch(not including the drawer) and your counter-top is 2'' extra therefore 26'' and some small small kitchen is even 23'' so your counter-top is usually 25''. And i mean usually.

Hello EZSAVE, posting for my cousin. They are looking to get a quartz countertop, 61 sq feet. They have been quoted $2600 with a hanging sink for the kitchen. Is that a good price? I am not sure of the thickness, but I assume the average?

What is the "best" kitchen countertop material?

And by "best", I am talking about the strongest resistance to stains, damage, breakage, most beautiful, lowest maintenance, versatile in terms of installation options, compatibility with undermount sinks, etc.

Also, what kind of product do you recommend for sealing a quartz countertop? We have one that was sealed by the installer, but they recommend a new application once per year. They came back and massaged this stuff that looked like honey into the countertop. But it came out of some big bulk container in the truck and they never said what it was.
