When was the last time your bar-top was replaced?
If you own a bar or restaurant, then there will likely be a time (if it hasn’t arrived already) in which your countertops will need to be replaced. When that time comes, consider replacing them with a material that will stand the test of time, and will be able to withstand the incredible stress and use that restaurant and bar countertops undergo- and that would be granite. Granite is scratch resistant, heat resistant, easy to maintain, and extremely durable- and since there is such a wide variety of colors and patterns that there is something to meet everyone’s needs.
When to replace your countertops
There are several factors that can tell you exactly when to replace your countertops, and while it’s partly design preference or general renovation of the bar/restaurant, it may also be due to actual damage to the counters.
Here are a few factors that indicate that you should replace your countertops:
- It no longer matches design vision
- Damage beyond repair
- Scorch marks
- Water damage
No matter what countertop material you already have, it is subject to damage. Especially if that material is being put under a lot of stress from continuous use. With plates, silverware, cups, etc. sliding across your countertops, you’re bound to update them regularly. Wood countertops scratch easily, and soak up the often spilled drinks and condensation from the glasses, causing rot or bacteria to grow in the wood. Therefore, they require a lot of maintenance to keep them in top shape. Other materials soak up liquids as well, and can warp or form bubbles or generally look worn. If you’re countertops/ bar top are showing signs of damage, consider replacing them with granite.
Replacing your countertops with granite- finding the best price
Granite Liquidators works directly with quarries around the world to import granite, marble, quartzite, and onyx. These stones are hand selected to create an extensive collection of both patterns and colors. This variety ensures that we will always have something available for all designs and styles, as well as for every budget. Hand selecting our stones also grants us the ability to import specific stones based on client needs. Therefore, if a specific stone is requested, we can have it delivered to our stone yard directly from the quarry, and then on to you.
We offer up front pricing on all of our stones, as well as the ability to buy in bulk. Because we’ve cut out the middle men between our warehouse and the quarry, we are able to transfer that savings onto our customers. Therefore, slabs that would normally be out of reach are now within the budget, allowing customers more access to the stones they really want.
When buying wholesale with Granite Liquidators the stone will be sold individually, without fabrication. This gives you the opportunity to shop around for fabricator of your choice. That way, if you have any specifications you want to make, such as a nice edge or a specific sink cut (not all fabricators will make special cuts), you can do so. It will also allow you to find the best price, as well as a full grip and control of the itemized costs.
