I would like to take the time to thank the team at Affordable Granite and Marble for the work they did for us. They are very professional and knowledgeable. Dan who came to template our kitchen took me through every step of what he was doing and gave me suggestions as to what might work best in our kitchen (very helpful). Paul, Troy and John who installed the countertops and new sink did an absolutely fantastic job I was amazed at how fast they had it done and everything was cleaned up and neat when they finished, Cindy for all your help in picking our granite and new sink and faucet . Every one of you made this such a great experience. It made such a difference in the appearance of my kitchen. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to have this done.

We just had our kitchen counter granite project finished this past Wednesday. We absolutely love it. You certainly have top-notch guys working for you. You listened to what we wanted and gave us additional ideas, and it turned out just as we planned. Thanks again for the great job! Rick - MA
Hi Paul, Just wanted to give you some feedback. Our experience was the best from the day we met you and your wife to the day the install team cleaned up and walked out. Every aspect of this process was fun and expertly done. Thank you the granite really makes our kitchen look great.
Everyone we met on the team are real pros and you can use us for recommendations any time.
We will be building a new house in the future so we look forward to doing business with you again.
Regards, Dan & Candy
I wanted to take a moment and just express how wonderful my experience has been from the first phone call through the final installation. Being under construction for the last 6 months has really made me appreciate quality work and top customer service. You have an A team, courteous, on time, excellent workmanship. When an issue came up, you did everything possible to come up with plan B. I am not one to mince words so let me just say, thank you for everything your team did to pull this off. It came out beautiful. I would like to take pictures and send them along to you for your gallery.
I just wanted to thank you guys for a job well done. John and Troy just finished the installation and they look terrific. Diane and I couldn’t be happier. They were very proffesional and courteous. Thanks you

Stone is a natural solid formation of one or many minerals. There are thousand types of
stone that have been quarried thoughout the centuries. Quarries are located all around the world. A majority of
natural stone comes from Italy, Spain, Turkey, United States, Mexico, China, Taiwan, India, Greece, Canada,
France, and Brazil.
Although both granite and marble were created deep within the earth millions of years ago, the processes
that formed them were quite different.
Granite is an igneous rock, which means that at one time during its development, it was
melted like volcanic lava. Unlike lava, however, this melted (or molten) rock never reached the surface. It
remained trapped inside the earth, where it slowly cooled and crystallized, resulting in a very uniform, speckled
stone that ranges in color from black and gray tones to pinks, browns, reds, greens and white.
Marble is a metamorphic rock. It was once limestone, but over time, the combination of
intense heat and pressure caused the limestone to re-crystallize. Foreign substances often entered the stone
during this process, creating an infinite variety of colors, textures and veining. Marble is a lot like people; no
two are exactly alike.
2. Granite Facts
Nearly impossible to scratch
Accepts hot pots and pans
Will not stain under normal use and will clean up after use
Does not harbor bacteria
Generally lasts forever
Since all granites are made by nature, no two are the same and all slabs should be reviewed and approved
for each project.
