Sure, they can be a little pricey, but they are well worth it in the end. However, there are a few mistakes you should avoid when buying granite countertops. In this video, you will learn about these mistakes.

The first common mistake is that people take their drawing to a big box store. These stores will often lowball the estimate. If it seems too good to be true, it likely is. When they actually send experts to your home, they will give you a significantly higher estimate. Instead, choose a reputable provider and have them physically visit your home to give you your estimate.

The next tip is to avoid contractors that don’t have workers compensation. Contractors are not required to have workers compensation. In fact, as many as 60% do not carry it. This means that you will be eating the cost of any accidents. Instead, demand that you see proof of their workers compensation before deciding with a contractor.
