So Much Stone In This Beautiful Home

We recently installed Natural Stone and Quartz (man-made) Countertops throughout this house. A builder that we have had a decade long relationship with renovated this house in Rob Roy and nothing adds beauty and value to a remodel like slab countertops.

Gold Time of Year

Getting granite countertops installed for the holiday season seems to be a priority for a lot of homeowners around this time of year.

We removed the old formica countertops and this homeowner selected the popular New Venetian Gold granite for their countertops as well as this textured ceramic tile backsplash.

An undermounted sink (along with a free matching polished granite cutting board) finishes off a kitchen and gives it the the practicality of a lip-free surface around the sink.

It's The Time of The Year For... Remodeling

This homeowner is getting ready for the Holiday season early this year by remodeling their Kitchen. No kitchen is complete without granite countertops.

We installed Santa Cecelia Classic on the Countertops and Radius Upper Bar Top and the homeowner will finish it off by installing a tile splash.

In the Master Bath we completed our job by installing the Twin Level Vanity Tops with a seamless appearance by running the backsplash at a single height.

Swirls n Curves Galore

We installed the exotic Juparana Gaivota granite in this kitchen remodel in the Austin subdivision of Crystal Creek. Quality work will leave you with fewer seams and a beautiful finished product even in the tightest spots, as seen by the many outlets our installers cut out for and fit into the full height granite backsplashes on their first try.

The swirls and movement throughout the counters and full height backsplashes add a ton of character to this kitchen. The top notch workmanship keeps a smooth polished finish on the large radius curve on the countertop.

Above is a picture of the Island as well as the cooktop counter with a ledge and riser set above making what looks like a seamless transition.

Beautiful Barton Creek

In the kitchen we installed a very popular granite, Apollo Storm with a Pencil Round edge to add a nice contemporary look.
The Master Bathroom was finished out with beautiful Calcutta Gold marble slab countertops and tub deck. The single piece tub deck was made complete with the beautiful, smooth undermounted tub cutout for a lipless ledge going into the tub.

Granite Countertops in Lakeway

Installing granite countertops in Lakeway feels like we're installing granite in our neighbors kitchen, because Lakeway is our neighborhood. We've been in the Lakeway area for the last 9 years and installing granite throughout the area since then.

We removed the existing formica countertops and were able to cut the bottom of the existing tile splash off and install the granite under the tile to save the customer from having to install a new backsplash. Tropical Brown granite added a nice bit of contrast to the light colored cabinets and splash. We also installed a full height riser underneath the upper bar top to add a consistent, tight-fitting finished look.

Typhoon Confirmed in San Antonio

No it's not a tropical storm I'm talking about, though you might think so if you've experienced the weather in San Antonio and the Hill Country area. It's the beautiful Typhoon Bordeaux granite that we installed in this remodel in the Forest Oak subdivision near the intersection of Nacogdoches Rd and Bitters Rd.
The maroon waves through the tops accented the cabinets very well and the Half Bullnose edge adds a sleek and smooth yet rounded finish to this beautiful install.

New Exciting Exotics

Ibere Gold added warmth and color to this kitchen, the pencil round edge is simple and sharp.

Nothing finishes off beautiful granite countertops like an undermounted sink with a smooth polished cutout.These customers realized that their kitchen remodel would be taken to another level by adding the look of a beautiful exotic granite. While exotics will generally cost a bit more than some more uniform colors these customers felt the added character, movement and veining would be priceless.

Bathrooms Need Granite Too

What's the best way to add elegance and character to any plain old room in your house? Well add granite of course! We removed everyone's least favorite, cultured marble, and replaced it with the timeless and beautiful look of natural stone to this bathroom remodel in Dripping Springs.

We installed the popular Santa Cecelia Classic granite with a Pencil Round Edge on two bathroom vanities along with 4" backsplashes for a crisp clean finishing look to the bathrooms. We installed this family's kitchen countertops abour 4 years ago and they were so happy with us that they came back when it was time to replace the old bathroom tops.

Kitchen Remodel in Stone Oak- San Antonio

We removed some plain jane formica countertops and we were able to leave existing ceramic tile backsplash in this kitchen remodel in the San Antonio area of Stone Oak.

We installed the always popular Crema Bordeaux granite on the countertops, single piece upper bar top (no seams), and a riser at the upper bar.

Here is a picture of the full height granite riser between the sink counter and the upper bar to add a solid flowing look to the kitchen. The edge selection for this job was our most popular edge the Half Bullnose.

Adding Beauty with Black Galaxy

We added beauty to this home when we installed Black Galaxy countertops with a smooth Ogee edge in this Kitchen remodel near 620 & Anderson Mill.

The white cast iron sink added a nice bit of contrast to the dark countertops and we ran the counter straight back into the windowsill. Our installers did a great job keeping the seam (to the right of the sink) tight and out of sight.
