Granite slab versus prefabricated granite: which is better?

Granite is a popular and preferred material for countertops because of its durability and stone-like visual appeal. However, many homeowners are unsure whether to go with granite slab versus prefabricated granite. In this blog, we’ll review what makes these countertop types different, and what you need to know going into your project.

If you’re in the market for granite (or quartz!) countertops, be sure to check out our first-time buyer’s guide.

Prefabricated Granite

Prefabricated granite is still granite. It’s just been cut to standard sizes before being shipped to the distributor. They are suitable in situations where multiple pieces are required and all the pieces must be of the same size. Installing a prefabricated stone is much easier and faster as compared to a custom cut slab.

While they look and feel similar to custom granite slabs, they are available in a narrow range of sizes. They offer no customization options since they are prefabricated. Selecting a prefabricated stone is suitable when they can fit in the existing space.

As we discussed recently, prefabricated granite is certainly a great choice for office and commercial settings.

Custom Granite Slab

Custom granite slabs are custom-cut pieces made according to the requirements of the clients. They are more expensive to install than prefabricated pieces since they need to be cut down to the size needed. In most cases, custom granite slabs are perfect for non-standard kitchens that have unusual countertop needs and sizes.

Some homeowners choose customer granite slab versus prefabricated granite because they like having more customization options when it comes to edges, seals, and more.

Granite slab versus prefabricated granite: what’s the difference?

The main difference between the two is price. Since prefabricated granite is mass-produced with no customization, it’s generally less expensive than a custom granite slab. If you’re willing to have less customization options, you’ll be able to get a better deal with prefabricated granite.

Let’s get this out of the way: most homeowners, homebuyers, or anyone short of being a countertop expert cannot tell the difference between prefabricated granite and granite slab once each is installed. If anything, quality is determined by the cost and origin of the granite—not the manufacturing style.

So, which is better?

Truth be told, that depends on the buyer, the context, the budget, the home, and a number of other factors. Superior Stone & Cabinet carries and installs both prefabricated granite and granite slabs. We’ve seen customers happy with both types.

Here are the best (and worst!) types of commercial office countertops

As a business owner or property manager, you know that commercial buildings have different needs from residential properties. That’s true for everything from the HVAC system to the plumbing. However, putting “creature comforts” in your office isn’t hard to do. That’s why Superior installs various types of commercial office countertops.

In this blog, we’ll run through the best countertops for commercial offices and business spaces. From the needs of small businesses to larger enterprises, Superior Stone & Cabinet is your source for quality countertop installation here in the Phoenix metro area.

The top-tier class of commercial office countertops

Increasingly, employees in a commercial office setting have come to expect amenities that they’re used to seeing in their own home. This includes full kitchens where employees can prepare and eat food, as well as places where they can take breaks.

If you’re a property manager, here are the two types of commercial office countertops that can help your property attract the right type of business tenants:

Granite countertops

Granite just looks right in an office setting.

Many people think of granite as the “king of countertops.” It’s versatile and modern enough to be used in a variety of settings, and it looks just as great in an office setting as it does in the home. It’s striking and conveys cleanliness and upscale amenities. 

Granite countertops are easy to care for and clean, and they can take some abuse from knives and hot objects. If you’re outfitting a commercial space with countertops, this is an important feature, since you don’t want to be quickly replacing your newly installed countertops.

Granite is probably also not as expensive as you might think. Superior Stone & Cabinet buys our granite in bulk, straight from the quarry. By cutting out the middleman and processing large orders, we can save you serious money on new granite countertops for your commercial project.

Quartz countertops

Splendor Grey Quartz

This is a sample of Splendor Grey quartz—one of our popular types of quartz countertops.

You’ve probably seen quartz countertops before without explicitly realizing that they’re quartz. In our opinion, there’s no better countertop for a trendy, modern office space. Many restaurants use quartz: it’s durable, relatively inexpensive, and clean-looking. It matches the desired decor of the 21st-century office space.

If you’re a property manager deciding between granite and quartz, think about the desired aesthetics of the prospective tenants you want to attract. Granite matches the feel of law firms and doctor’s offices. Quartz just feels right in the office of tech startups and small businesses. Ask your current tenants what they think!

Two countertop types commercial offices should probably avoid

Not all countertops are the right fit for commercial spaces and offices. Here are two that you should probably steer clear of when you’re shopping for new commercial office countertops:

Marble

Marble is classical and elegant. It’s beautiful and truly unlike any other type of countertop. However, it’s not as durable as granite or quartz when it comes to discoloration or stains.

In a residential setting, this might not matter as much: many homeowners place marble in bathrooms where it won’t see too much use. Obviously, your office kitchen gets a lot more foot traffic.

In addition, marble can get pricey at the volume needed in commercial settings. If you want the look of marble, talk to the team here at Superior Stone & Cabinet. We may be able to find you a granite countertop that resembles marble so that you can have the best of both worlds.

Plastic

Plastic is incredibly appealing because it’s often the most cost-effective means of adding countertops to a commercial office. However, it’s just not durable enough for this type of use.

Knife nicks, burns, stains, discoloration, cracking—in a residential setting, plastic can go the way of the dodo fast. But, in a commercial setting where office kitchens see a ton of traffic and use, that plastic countertop is going to need to be replaced really quickly.
