Default Best/cheapest place to buy travertine in Phoenix?

Just moved back to the Valley and need to purchase versailles pattern travertine for our flooring. I've seen some ads on CL for around $2.25 sq/ft, but it's crap. I've been to some nice showrooms (Cactus, Arizona Tile) and they're around $5 sq ft.

I'd really like to find some nice quality (premium) travertine for under $3 sq ft--any suggested sources?

Also need some granite remnants (and someone looking to fabricate/install countertops on the side) if anyone has a referral.

Check this people out Bullnose Travertine Tile, Travertine Wall Tile, Travertine Tile Flooring, Travertine Porcelain Tile, Travertine Floors, Travertine Flooring, Travertine Ceramic Tile, Travertine Tile, Travertine Floor Tiles, Travertine Wall Tiles | Floor & Decor Outle

They have several locations in the valley. I don't know how far $3/sq ft is going to take you, but give these folks a shot.

I think this bears repeating. (though I agree that looking for remnants of granite for small counter tops, like in a bathroom, can be a very good tactic. Call around to the better fabricators and ask if they have a "boneyard.")

For granite and travertine also try this place:

Thanks all. I ended up getting some nice noce versailles pattern travertine for $2.70 sq/ft (I needed 3,900 sq ft). I went to Floor & Decor yesterday for some noce shower soap dishes--thanks!

I also found a number of boneyards that were willing to sell me rems for a fair price. I check out Tanner Materials too--thanks!

Thanks. I discovered Rock Bottom when I was shopping around as well, but their shipping costs killed th deal for me (I needed 4,500 sq ft of versailles travertine). After some exhaustive research, I found a little place in Mesa that was able to provide a very competitive price on some nice quality stone.

I've used Imperial Wholesale for carpet. Prices were great, customer service was excellent, quality of install was okay (I would have probably made them come back except we were putting the house on the market anyway).

Some great stuff out there - especially if you are looking for vessel sinks.

We used granite rems on our last house and it saved a TON of $$$ and looked great. Using 2 CM instead of 3 saved some dollars and with the right edge it looks as though it is 3 cm.
