Granite Countertops – How to choose a granite slab

Granite Countertops – How to choose a granite slab

Upgrading your kitchen with granite countertops requires selecting a granite color and slab from which your kitchen countertops will be fabricated. PRO-TOPS of Charlotte has the largest inventory of granite slabs in the area among fabricators and installers of granite countertops. When you come to our showroom, you will be able to tour our inventory and hand pick the granite slab of your choice right from our store. If you do not find a slab you like, we will refer you to one of our preferred importers / wholesalers in the Charlotte area where you will find hundreds of granite slabs to choose from.

There are three levels of granite – Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3, as well as exotic colors. The different levels do not indicate quality levels, but rather how common a type of granite is. Level One granite slabs are more common, more consistent in colors and markings for a more uniformed look. Going up in levels, granite slabs have more obvious differences in appearance, patterns, colors and hues, making them more unique and more desirable.

For customers desiring Level One granite countertops, it is often not necessary for them to see the actual slabs since Level One slabs are usually consistent in colors and markings and are generally more uniform. PRO TOPS has samples on hand of Level One granite colors you can select from. Going up in levels, granite slabs become more unique from one another and it is increasingly important for you to hand pick your slab according to your taste and preferences. Looking at a small sample and looking at the entire slab from which your granite countertops will be fabricated is completely different. On a full slab, you can better see the patterns, movements, veins and color variations.

The professionals at PRO TOPS of Charlotte can assist you in selecting a great granite slab for your kitchen project, no matter what level you choose. With our help, you will be able to better understand how the slab you select will be used to fabricate your custom granite countertops and have a better idea of what the final result will look like.

If you select a slab from one of our preferred wholesalers / importers, we recommend you have PRO TOPS involved in the process so we can make sure there is no defects in the slab you select or unattractive markings and veins on the slab which could affect the final result.
