Graniterra accommodates different budget ranges and provides superior service always at all price points.

Graniterra specializes in natural and engineered stone products including porcelain, quartzite, slate, soapstone, marble, granite, quartz, Corian, and travertine. Many different variants can affect the price of a stone project for your residential or commercial space.

In this guide, you will learn about how stone project pricing varies depending on the following factors:

1. Natural Stone Type
2. Slab Utilization (material yield per job)
3. Project Size
4. Edge Type
5. Types of Cuts
6. Special Features


Natural Stone Type

Porcelain, Quartzite, and Slate are some of the most expensive materials used in interior design; they are also the most unique to fabricate. Quartzites are the very durable, making them excellent choices for high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Porcelain offers a modern, high-end look, excellent for shower walls, paneling, and fireplace surrounds. Soapstone and Marble offer a traditional design for accents throughout your home, consistently at an attractive price point. Engineered Quartz offers many patterns and designer looks at an affordable price that work well in kitchens and bathrooms that see significant traffic. Granites, Travertine, and Corian are fantastic value options for all purposes in your home.

Slab Utilization (Material Yield per Job)

Slab Utilization can have a major impact on the cost of your project. A full slab of stone typically is in the 55 to 60 square foot range. The size of your project and stone characteristics are two primary variables that can impact material yield. An average job of 45-60 square feet may require one or two slabs depending on project layout and material pattern. If your material selection has veins and pattern, then the layout can force additional material requirements. smaller projects such as a single vanity or simple fireplace surround may fit on a select remnant from a large variety of stones available.


Project Size

If you are planning to do a large remodeling project, it will be more expensive than doing a small one. This is because the larger the project, the more material and labor required. The same applies to adding natural stone to your home’s interior design or remodeling project. Graniterra’s team can work with projects of any size, residential or commercial.

Edge Type

The edge is an integral part of the natural stone project since it plays a large role in the feeling and style your room conveys. There are many different types of edges for a natural stone project. Depending on the material and style you want, some choices are more expensive than others.

  • Eased Edge – All stones (porcelain is only Eased or mitered edge)
  • Bullnose – All stones
  • Half Bullnose – All stones
  • Quarter and Half Bevel – All stones
  • Ogee – All except certain Quartzites
  • Elite – All except certain Quartzites
  • Laminated Edge – All Stones with exceptions
  • Mitered Edge – All stones with exceptions

Other edges are possible but tooling purchases may be required.

Types of Cuts

  • Sink cut out – One or more sink cutouts, including the countertop and backsplash, add to the project scope.
  • Diagonal cuts – One or more diagonal cuts in the natural stone add to the complexity of the project and its price.
  • Full Height backsplash – requires precision fit, vertical application, and additional trips to measure and install, affecting labor costs.

Special Features

In addition to the overall price of a natural stone project, there is an additional charge for these features:

  • Backsplashes or risers are the vertical faces of your countertop. They can be created with any of the edges listed above.
  • Full Height backsplash – requires precision fit, vertical application, and additional trips to measure and install, affecting labor costs.
  • Waterfall edges are another way to give your kitchen a unique look by featuring multiple rounded edges that create a waterfall-style drop from the countertop to the cabinet. This effect works especially well with darker-colored stones such as chocolate granite and black marble but can look great on certain lighter-colored stones too! Because these types of projects take extra time and effort during fabrication, they will cost more than standard projects with simple edges.
  • Unique applications – fireplaces, showers, outside bars and grills, cladding and other unique applications require additional evaluation to determine and meet customer’s desires.
