In an effort to save time, many granite companies bring their customers into a showroom and show them small samples of granite colors. Then, based on these samples, the customer decides which granite is best for their home. The granite is paid for, a slab is selected by the company and then cut down to size to meet the needs of the customer’s project. However, there are many reasons why you should never select your granite this way. Always approve the exact slab of granite that is going to be used in your home before having it cut.
Granite is a natural stone; it is not manufactured. Therefore, each and every piece is unique. Here are some of the features that can vary from slab to slab:
While the sample you are shown in a showroom can give you a good idea as to what the color and pattern may look like, these features vary from piece to piece. For example, one piece of black granite may have more white flecks in it than another. One piece of a rose granite may have a more distinguishable swirl pattern to it, while another may have the faintest hint of a pattern. You are paying a lot for your granite and the last thing you want is to realize that it looks different or has features you don’t care for after it is cut and installed.
