When it comes to granite countertops, we know you have choices. Chances are you have seen a few granite shops driving around, or you visited one of our larger competitors that offer granite countertops. Why choose Avanti? Here are just some of the reasons… we know we’ll do a better job than others, at a lower price, faster, with more love and care…
As a small family owned business, we have been working with people just like you for over 3 generations. We are honest, hardworking and perform each job with pride, and all the care and consideration you deserve.
When it comes to granite or stone slabs you can pick from, we offer a large variety of choices, not available with large vendors. We work with one of Michigan’s largest distributors, and we help our customers select the slab we’ll use to manufacture their countertop. Granite is a natural stone, with a lot of natural variations. Selecting based on a sample can result in disappointment when the fabricated countertop is delivered, as it may be of a slightly different shade or pattern than the sample. Also, going shopping for granite is fun. Are you an Uba Tuba person or more of a Blue Pearl?? Don’t wait too long to find out…
You may have seen advertisements for as low as $19/sq foot. These are at best deceptive, as they don’t include edges, seems, sink install, etc. When we quote a price, it will be all inclusive of materials, fabrication and installation, including edge finishings, seams, sink cutouts and other project requirements you specify, without any hidden cost or fees.

We offer a limited time warranty on fabrication and installation of any granite and stone countertop for the first year. You can review our warranty here.

We suggest you select the Granite Countertops edges based on your esthetic, safety issues and practicality. If your family has children, or you are concerned with safety, a more rounded edge design like a bullnose or ogee may be more practical. In general, the more intricate the design, the more complicated the cleaning and the higher fabrication costs.

Soap and water! We will provide you with detailed instructions but the bottom line is just soap and water. Avanti seals all of the slabs before cutting even begins and this protects your stone from staining. You should re-seal after the first year and then every three to five years as needed. Oil spills can be problematic so, if you spill oil on your counters, clean it up as you go and do not allow it to sit on the stone for any length of time.
Our stone is quarried all over the world. Most of the granite and marble blocks are shipped to Italy for cutting and polishing and then port on the east coast before being shipped to our suppliers. Avanti Kitchens and Granite only uses suppliers who provide elect granite. We never purchase “seconds” or go through disreputable suppliers. Mostly, we purchase from local suppliers but we have suppliers as far away as New York and Florida.
Our schedule is usually booked 2-4 weeks in advance. For kitchen remodels, from the time we make templates until we return with your granite countertops, marble fireplace or stone project , is usually seven to ten business days. For new bath or kitchen construction, it is usually a minimum of 7 business days.
Avanti Kitchens & Granite only charges you for the material that is actually used. Therefore, any remaining material is the property of Avanti. Because you are charged for the material in sink and cooktop cut-outs, these pieces technically belong to the customer. If the customer wishes, we can deliver them or, for additional cost, re-cut and polish them into bread boards.
All of our customers are directed to stone suppliers in the Metro Detroit area so they may hand-pick their granite or marble selections. This allows you to see the quality of polish, the color and the composition of the stone before we even start.
The least expensive granite is comparable to the more expensive solid surface material. Many factors are considered when we price a prospective job: price of the stone, size of the slabs, the type of edge (many included free in price), the number of holes to be cut, and other details, too. This is why we have a strong preference for meeting with you before any pricing is provided.
The stone is available in two thicknesses: ¾ inch and 1 ¼”, 2cm and 3cm respectively. We can also laminate different stone thicknesses for custom thicker edges. Granite, Marble, Slate, Sandstone flooring tile is 3/8″ thick and usually 12″ X 12″, other sizes
Granite is scratch resistant and heat resistant. Take your pots right off the stove and place them on the granite counter. Take things right out of the oven and place them on the granite countertop. Do not cut on the granite because you run the risk of dulling your knives! Other stones such as marble and limestone do not perform as predictably and we discourage their use in several places, especially the kitchen.
