100% depends on grade of granite, thickness, and edge. From cheap to sky is the limit.

This. All depends on color, style and thickness. Then you get into more money depending on the edge style you go with. Range can really vary...

We have been shopping. It ranges from about $48-$80/sqft, depending on what you pick and what edge you get.

Well, we can't afford the $200/ft stuff, and as such, have not seen anything near that high!!! If we did, we would just turn around and keep on looking elsewhere!

I hear you Bisch.....I'll be on the lower end of that scale.

We have granite now but we both hate the color (came with the house). Is there any opportunity to re-purpose/sell the existing countertop?

I just remodeled kitchen and my granite installed was $17k. I did keep the granite we pulled and will use it in the bathrooms when I remodel them. the cost of granite really just depends on the grade of slab you buy.

You just need to talk to some fabricators and get out to a stone yard or two and look. Its way too volatile in pricing. Cheap can be as low as $25/ft craigslist special to $200/ft

We purchased 6 slabs of granite after our home flooded that should be installed this week. 3 slabs are Blue Dunes (level 6) and 3 slabs are White Galaxy (level 4-5). Just the slabs of granite were $6,800 with contractor pricing. I still have to pay install on top of that.

The pictures are all very pretty. We generally budget around $50/sq Ft for outdoor kitchens.

I just built an outdoor kitchen for a client. Original budget for granite I quoted at 14k. They decided on a black flake instead ( comes from Africa) price for six slabs was 36k plus 10k to cut, chip edge and install. Under most common choices of granite you would be looking at 55 to 110 per sq ft installed at 1 1/8"with a beveled, squared or round edge. We price per sq ft not linear ft on granite

Black colored granite outside seems like a nightmare. Seems like you would spend all your time cleaning it.

We just remodeled the kitchen in the house we just bought. We only had approximately 22 linear feet of countertops. With tear out, installation, materials, and undermount sink included, was just a hair over $1800 out the door for the granite. I think we went with a grade 2 or 3...I can't remember. We walked around their granite yard looking forever because there were so many choices. We went with a beveled edge.

Here's a pic of a section to see what the slab looked like...

In west Texas, yes on cleaning it a lot. It also gets very hot if any of it is in the sun. I tried to talk them out of it but it is what they wanted and they were willing to pay for it.

How on earth are people using 6-8 slabs? You must be building mansions. My house with 3 vanities and a decent sized kitchen was a total of 3 slabs.

Not all slabs are the same size, and a lot depends on the shapes of all the pieces. A decent size island can take a half of a slab, and make the rest of the slab useless.

Iíve been working for a granite shop now for 10 years. Pretty much everything that has already been said is true. Prices do vary considerably as there are ALOT of variables. One thing that seems to ring true is that you get what you pay for. We get calls on a regular basis from people who went the cheap route and are now having issues. They call their granite guy only find he is unavailable.

I am amazed at what we find is acceptable from other companies.

Another thing most people donít realize....just because you paid an astronomical amount for material does not mean itís BETTER. Most exotics are expensive because of their remote or difficult quarry location as well the fact that most of them are extremely fragile material that just wants to fall apart. In those cases, quarries have to go above and beyond just to make sure slabs arrive to the yards in one piece.

Go to granite shop and look around. Sometimes they have some really sweet deals. The darker the granite the harder the granite is.

Thatís not necessarily true.
Most of the crystals in granite fall around a 7/9 on the Mohs hardness scale. Quartz is one of the hardest minerals commonly found in granite and itís white to grey colored. Mica, which is very dark, is considerably softer.
But granite as a rock is very very hard and resistant to scratches. Hard blows may chip it but kives will not scratch it. It is harder than limestone, marble and slate.
If your countertop project is small, ask if they have any remnants available. We used remnants for a vanity and small Kitchen in a barndo build. Saved quite a bit.

if you get remnants... where do you gt it cut? There at the granite place? or is it just a better price and part of the overall install project?

Remnants are usually at the fabrication shop, so you'd have them cut there. Remnants are usually for bathrooms or small runs. Remnants are not the best idea for a large project.

I charge more for concrete tops than I do granite. A lot more labor involved especially if I have to buy forms for decor edges. Although I have done some beautiful concrete tops they are not as durable as granite. This is of coarse hand poured tops. Now if you choose ready made concrete slabs then yes it's cheaper but limited to slab size with a lot more seams.
