Prefabricated Countertops vs. Stone, Quartz, and Porcelain Slabs
Prefabricated countertops are slabs of natural stone or engineered quartz which have been dressed with countertop-ready edging (in a variety of styles) and are ready for custom cutting. The Prefabricated counter is partially processed at our production facility and shipped to our warehouses in the Bay Area, where it is selected by the customer and cut to size for your kitchen countertops, backsplash and bathroom.
This differs from Custom-slab, which does not have its edging and finishing applied until after it is purchased. While slab can be useful for certain specialized projects, it is not always as cost-effective as pre-fab counters.
Quality, style and selection for our prefabricated stone countertop is equivalent to Slab. Our sales rep can help determine what the job calls for, but typically, prefabricated countertop is the way to go. In terms of price, our customers generally pay 30-40% less for prefabricated countertop, making it the popular choice for homeowners who want both high quality and reasonable pricing.
Assessing Quality Countertop Materials
Artistic Stone carries only Grade A granite, marble and limestone products. Lower grades may crack or have muddy, inconsistent coloring. Our countertops are ¾” thick, which is thicker than most prefabricated countertops on the market. Thick stone increases its durability. .
We are proud to label the origins of our stone products, providing you with a greater assurance of its quality and manufacturing.
Our prefabricated countertops come with four distinct edge options. Edges have a height of 1.5 inches, except for marble, limestone, and porcelain pre-fab countertops, of which carry a slightly thinner edge.
Surface Finishes: Artistic Stone carries polished, honed, and brushed finish. Please check with our Sales Team for availability. We can also custom-hone natural stone.
Kitchen Islands and Backsplashes
We carry matching prefab kitchen countertops, kitchen islands and backsplashes and are happy to show you all of our inventory. By ensuring that each of these surfaces came from the same stone block, homeowners can rest assured that color and pattern is consistent and uniform.
We also carry longer kitchen islands than most of our competitors, who may only carry up to 30 to 36” x 96” lengths. Artistic Stone carries sizes up to 52” width and 100” length. The longer, wider sizes mean fewer seams in your countertop surface.
For backsplashes, we offer both 4” and 7” sizes, suitable for covering rough areas of the wall exposed during demolition of your old tile or backsplash.
Smart, Reliable Workmanship
As always, Artistic Stone offers a two-year warranty on its workmanship.
