GRANITE COUNTERTOPS levels
Granite countertops are ranked by levels – Level 1 through Level 3 and exotic. Levels simply indicate how rare and readily available a particular color is. It does not indicate quality level. All granite slabs are of the same quality and durability. Level 1 granite includes the most common colors. Level III granite includes stones colors that are rare and exotic. Lower levels of stone are often uniform and consistent, while higher levels have more irregular patterns, also called “movement”. Even though granite slabs may be classified as the same color, there might be a variance in tint, and certain colors are more prevalent in one slab over the other, even though, technically, they are of the same color. Granite countertop levels I and II are more affordable. Level III granite countertops are more expensive because they are rarer.
Some fabricators classify granite colors under particular different granite countertops levels, depending on where they purchase their slabs. Not all colors are available in all parts of the world, and what is easily accessible for one fabricator may be the opposite for another. Below are samples of the different granite countertop levels and colors PRO-TOPS offers to the Charlotte market. Please refer to our granite quarries world map to see the origin of each type of granite.
