What happens to the material that is left over after a granite
countertop is fabricated and installed? It depends on how much material is left
over. After fabrication any full slabs that were set aside for the project but
not used are simply returned to inventory. Partial slabs are measured and if
they contain 25 square feet or more of material they are labeled as partial
slabs and returned to inventory. But if the amount of usable stone is
less than 25 square feet the material is labeled as remnant.
Partial slabs and remnants are stored in an area we call the
"Boneyard” and it’s a great place to find great deals.
Regardless of the original cost of the stone SSD will template, fabricate and
install a vanity top from remnant material for as little as $450. This is an outstanding opportunity to save money on small projects or
portions of larger projects that are less than 25 square feet.
