Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about slab (as a material), and about slab countertops. Hopefully our answers help you in your research. For any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
What is a slab countertop?
It is a countertop made using a slab of stone – usually quartz, marble or granite. However, porcelain slabs are also popular.
How much does a glass slab countertop cost?
On average, the cost per square foot is somewhere between $80-100, including installation. While recycled glass looks pretty and is a fairly good choice, bear in mind that glass slabs are nowhere near stone when it comes to durability, safety, and ease of repair.
How long does a slab countertop last?
Slab is extremely durable, and will usually last a lifetime. The National Association of Home Builders states stone countertops can last well over a hundred years! This makes them an excellent investment for homes.
Why would you choose a slab countertop over a granite tile countertop?
Both granite slabs and granite tiles have their pros and cons. However, while granite tile may be cheaper and may replicate the look fairly well, it’s not close to the real thing. Natural stone has a distinct look and feel. Besides, granite tile can chip or crack and need replacement, and the grout in granite tile is a major distraction.
How long is a full-length granite countertop slab?
Granite slabs are usually 9-10 feet in length, and 5-6 feet in width. Their square footage usually hovers around 50 sq. ft. Of course, we can always cut them down to a smaller size to fit your kitchen.
How is a slab of granite cut into a countertop?
Granite is one of the most difficult materials to cut, and requires expensive, specialized machinery. One of the most popular tools used is the wet-cut circular saw, which drips water onto the granite as it’s being cut so there’s less dust.
How much does a granite slab countertop cost?
Costs differ from place to place, and there are other variables in play such as the type of granite you’re ordering. Remnants, for example, cost very little, but usually, granite costs around $50-80 per square foot (plus installation). At Builders Interiors, the rates for slab start at just $62 per square foot, all inclusive.
What are the typical dimensions of a slab of countertop?
Like with granite, most other materials (quartz, for example) max out at 9-10 feet in length and 5-6 feet in width. If you have a bigger countertop, don’t worry! You can still get a beautiful slab countertop – it’ll just be made up of two or more slabs. The installers will make sure the patterns merge and flow together, so the seam is less visible. You can also place the seam strategically (beside the sink, for example), to minimize visibility.
How thick is a quartz countertop slab?
You can choose from three options of thickness – 1 cm, 2 cm, and 3 cm.
Usually, 3 centimeter slabs are recommended for the kitchen, and 2 cm may be suitable for bathroom countertops and vanities.
How thick is a stone countertop slab?
A stone slab (used in a countertop) is usually 3 centimeters thick. It’s available in thinner options, but 3 cm is recommended for kitchens because kitchen countertops are subjected to a lot of strain. The thicker the stone, the more the durability.
