Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does countertop installation cost?

The national average for countertop installation is $2,147, but this cost can fluctuate depending on the type of countertop you want. Countertops made out of granite, marble, quartz, laminate, soapstone and even recycled glass will all have different costs. 

The color and patterns may also have an impact, particularly you choose a natural stone with rarer colors or patterns available. The size and type of finish all play a role, too. Keep in mind more customized edges, complex shapes and cutouts will add to the cost. 

To understand how much your new counters will cost, talk to contractors and countertop installers near you. Request free estimates so you can properly budget for this project.

How long does countertop installation take?

Countertop installation generally takes a couple of days, though some companies say it could take less than one day and closer to a week. It all depends on the demand the pro is dealing with.

If it's a remodel job, then it will take time to remove the existing countertop. The pro will then need to make cutouts for things like sinks and electrical outlets. After shaping the countertop in their shop, they will bring it in — typically in several sections — and place it and seal it. After fitting sinks, outlets and appliances into the countertop, they will seal the seams.

When you're requesting price quotes from countertop specialists, ask them how long it will take to install your new counters.

What's the most durable countertop?

Countertops made out of natural stones — such as granite and quartz — are the most durable. These materials are nearly impervious to heat, knife cuts, scratching and staining. 

Reviews for San Mateo countertop professionals

I have rarely had such a positive experience with any craftsman/contractor. Hassan was responsive and professional from the first communication. He spent a full day on Saturday fixing our granite countertop...filling cracks, putting broken pieces back together, and polishing the entire countertop. It looks like new. Highly recommend.

Ruben and his team were great to work with. Clear communications, answering all our questions and concerns promptly. We are very pleased with our new countertops, sink and backsplash. It’s like a whole new kitchen!

Thank you so much for the work. We will see you again when it's time to refinish. As a general contractor I am used to just demolishing the kitchen and installing a new countertop. However with this 1 day refinishing option it opens up a whole myriad of exciting solutions. I would gladly do business with you again.
