Granite countertops are made up of natural stone. They have great heat resistance ability.
The countertops made up of granite require less repair time. These slabs are a little bit expensive. A standard granite slab has a price range of $40 to $75 per square foot. Sometimes in the case of some special slabs, it can cost $500 per square foot.
Installation of these slabs requires $330-$500. The cutting and finishing process requires about $10. Hence for a countertop of 30 square feet, the price range will exist between $3,000 to $3,500.
A concrete countertop is one of the best options. Using concrete for the countertop is a very less expensive option. Concrete countertops do not scratch and can be made by using recycled material. These countertops are also heat resistant.
A concrete slab has a price range of $65 to $175 per square foot. This price includes the countertop design, materials, construction, and installation. For a countertop of 30 square feet, the price range will exist between $2,220 to $2,410. This price includes the labor cost and the cost of additional supplies that can cost up to $80.
Concrete countertops are difficult to fix and require a long time for installation. Hence their making and installation are time taking.
