I orginally posted this on York County SC city data, but thought maybe Charlotte would be better since that is where most companies that do this type of work are located, here's my question:

Anyone have these? If so your take on them, who did you use, and was work satisfactory?

I'm looking into them because I do not want my whole kitchen tore up and I never ever want to paint again.

I was wondering about overlays too. I have seen them, and I think that they look nice.

Where do you go to look at them and where do you buy them? Do you have to have a contractor come out?

What do you mean you don't ever want to paint again. Aren't these for your counter tops and not your walls?

Default Granite Overlays

I too am researching granite overlays. A few minutes ago, after looking at their website, I called Granite Transformations in Charlotte. We may go to the showroom tomorrow. . .

But in the meantime I'm researching—trying to find the most unbiased customer reviews. One thing I just noticed is that the edges and corners are sharp...none seem to be rounded or softened. Hmmm, does that give an impression of mass-produced, laminate-styled countertops?

Our problem is deciding what route to go. OH, and wanting it all done by Christmas even though we started this project six months ago. This adult A.D.D. and decision making is becoming a problem. . .

Apparently Granite Transformations will be more expensive than solid granite through Lowe's or Home Depot....but....but. Is there even a but?

Anyone else out there in this same situation? If so, please offer advice and comments.

Just got a supposed estimate from Granite Transformations. The total was more than $1000 more than slab granite and their engineered granite was only 1/4" thick compared to 3/4" slab granite. It was a very unspecific estimate with no prices quoted in the $ line per section such as material, labor, plumbing, etc. Also Granite Transformation's verbal quote (no mention on paper about square feet) was 6 square feet more than I and two other estimators quoted. They certainly did not give a complete written estimate that could be compared to others. BEWARE
