Can anyone recommend a company that installs granite countertops in the Mint Hill area? Thanks.

I have used Legacy Countertops in Pineville for several jobs. They are wonderful. Bob is the owner and his wife works with him. He has been in this business for 30+ years so he really knows what he is doing. I have referred them to lots of people and everyone has loved them. They have great prices too!!!
Their showroom is Hwy 51 south - through Pineville .....go like you are headed to Carowinds. Their showroom is about 2 minutes from downtown Pineville. Really nice showroom....lots to pick from.

We looked at Legacy but they have a limited selection. We wanted to see a sample of what we liked but they had none. You can see the slabs outside in the daylite but have no idea what they will look like in the florescent lights. We were told that as soon as they get a scrap of what we liked, they will call us. It has been 4 months now and we have been calling them.
The new Home Depot design center opened near uptown. They have a big selection and they are offering a 20% discount through today. The prices were several hundred dollars cheaper than Legacy.

I don't know if they serve down there but the prices are amazing. Panda Kitchen off of WT Harris. My neighbor just got granite installed. My kitchen was priced at $1700 about $29 sqft. The story is that they are not custom. They are cut and edged (Bullnosed high $$$) in Asia somewhere and then cut to length here. They do nothing more than install the granite you have to get a plumber to remove sink. But they are a third of the cost of most shops. Just make sure your walls are square with your cabinets. They are not custom. But you can't beat their prices.

We remodeled our kitchen with granite from Universal Stone in Charlotte.
Plenty of slabs to choose from, lots of unique edging (we went with ogee).
Professional and thorough, cannot recommend enough.

No connection other than being a satisfied customer.

Default Granite for Kitchen

We had new granite put in just before the holidays. We used Heritage Stone and were very pleased with the results. They were much less than home depot. We could select our slabs at their showroom and they sealed the granite before they installed it.


Their showroom is just north of uptown and website is heritage-stone.com

I went with HD because they had a great special going on at the time. They run it about every 6 months on granite and cabinets.

I could have saved a little bit of money going somewhere else but when combined with the financing incentives and the warranty we thought it was the best way to go for us.

When shopping the granite make sure you are comparing the same levels and most importantly thickness! Some of these places are selling the thin stuff, hence the cheaper price.

Depends on what you want. If you are just flipping (eg Don't have to look at, and live with, the granite everyday) then go with the cheap stuff. Most people don't realize that the cheapest prices are the thin granite, like 'Charlottean' said.

For my house, I used Liberty Stone, they were fantastic. The best part is the do it all by hand. No machine edging, no silicon streaks and no lines where the top meets the rounded edge. Friends always comment about the difference in my countertops and the ones at their own homes. I interviewed alot of companies. I actually met the guy who does all the Home Depot tops and got a bid from him. (Home Depot subs it all out to a local guy.)

So if you don't have to live with it yourself, get the thin, cheap, commercial grade granite. If it is for your own home, call Liberty Stone.
