If you are planning a kitchen remodel or bath remodel and live in the Charlotte area, we invite you to visit our kitchen and bath showroom where you can view granite countertops we currently have on display ( read about how to select a granite slab for your project) and speak with our kitchen and bath designers on staff. Our parent company, PRO-TOPS, has fabricated and installed granite countertops in the Charlotte area for over 20 years, and currently designs and installs over 60 countertops per day.
Sourcing Granite Slabs
To offer our Charlotte customers the best selection of granite colors, we source slabs from around the world. Since granite is nature-made, we inspect each slab for defects to make sure our customers get the nicest looking granite ones from which their kitchen countertops will be designed. The granite slabs we sell and install are polished only on one side and edges can be finished in one of several styles available. We also sell sinks and faucets to go with new countertops.
Granite slabs are ranked by levels – Level 1 through Level 3, as well as exotic granite slabs. Levels indicate how rare or readily available a particular color of granite is. They do not indicate quality level. All granite slabs are of the same quality and durability.
Level 1 granite includes the most common colors. Level 3 granite includes stone 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 variations in tint, and certain colors can be more prevalent in one slab over the other, even though, technically, they are the same colors.
Fast Turn Around Installation
To make it possible for our customers to have beautiful new countertops installed in their home in a matter of days, not months, we inventory large quantities of granite slabs locally and use state-of-the art fabrication equipment to fabricate countertops. In turn, this decreases the lead time required to fabricate and install countertops at our customers’ homes. At the Kitchen and Bath Design Studio, we truly make it possible to have beautiful new countertops installed in your home in three weeks or less from the time you give us the go ahead.

How to care for granite countertops
Granite is one the hardest and toughest material used to make countertops. Aside from its inherent natural beauty, granite’s durability is what makes it a great choice for kitchen countertops. Even though granite countertops are heat and scorch resistant, it is recommended to use trivets for very hot pots to avoid issues related to high temperature differentials between hot pots and a cold granite surface. Granite countertops have low porosity, but still need to be sealed yearly to prevent staining and etching. Spills should be wiped promptly, especially if they are oily or acidic.
To clean your granite tops, simply use a soft cloth, a PH balanced soap and water. Never use harsh chemicals on your granite counters and do not use abrasive sponges. That’s it! Read more about how to take care of your granite countertops.
