If you are considering Granite Countertops there are a couple of important things to consider.
First, not all Granite is equal. Most Granite comes from Brazil, India, China, and Canada. There are many quality granite distributors in or near Charlotte that sell quality Granite products but be sure to ask where they buy their products.
After the Granite is shipped to Charlotte, it is purchased by Granite Fabricators. Queen City Kitchens is a Granite Fabricator and licensed kitchen remodeling contractor. We have relationships with all the best stone importers in North Carolina and supply only the very best quality Granite countertops and remnants.
Take a look at our Granite Samples online. Our online catalog shows the more popular colors but if you have a special stone in mind, we can get it for you!
Second, not all granite & countertop stores in Charlotte are equal. Ask about the fabrication process and be certain to look at samples of previous work. Pay attention to the details. Qualified Granite Installers should be able to produce seams that are all but invisible. Also, look for polished returns at the ends of countertops. Take a look at the reviews on Google and Yelp to find out what others are saying about their experience.
Queen City Kitchens has a whole kitchen showroom full of granite samples but here are a few to help you with your research.
