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.

I feel extremely lucky to have found Victor here in thumbtack. I had a very damaged and chipped granite countertop in the sink area. Victor was the first person who responded to my request and was extremely thorough and professional. He went out of his way to explain to me the process of repairing the chipped granite as opposed to replacing my counter with an entire slab. I believe that If it would have been anyone else. That person would probably have pushed me to replace the damaged counter top. But rather, he explained to me the entire process and gave me an option. I could sense that he is extremely trustworthy and vey passionate about his job. He was very professional when he arrived and was extremely accommodating, professional and respectful. There is not enough words to say how much I appreciate the incredible job he’s done. The finish product was amazing! You can’t even tell the difference. Thank you Victor and to your helper. I highly recommend him and his company!

What you need to know about countertop services.

How much do real countertops cost?

Countertop costs depend on the material you choose, how much you need and labor costs in your area. On the low end, you can expect to pay about $11 per square foot. If you opt for a more expensive, durable material, you could pay upwards of $200 per square foot.

Here’s a look at the cost of installing different types of countertops:

Material

Cost per sq. ft.

Ceramic tile

$11-$18

Laminate or formica

$27-$34

Wood (butcher block)

$34-$41

Engineered stone

$35-$77

Granite

$40-$200

Concrete

$52-$93

Quartz

$74-$99

Stainless steel

$175-$200

Before committing to a countertop material, contact local countertop installation pros on Thumbtack. They can help you understand the pros and cons for each type as well as the cost.

What is the most affordable countertop?

In general, ceramic and laminate countertops are the most affordable options. Ceramic tile countertops cost approximately $11-$18 per square foot, and laminate counters cost an estimated $27-$34 per square foot.

Laminate counters come in many colors and textures. They often mimic more expensive materials like granite or soapstone. 

Ceramic tile countertops are somewhat DIY-friendly for homeowners who want to handle their countertop installation. However, you should have some experience setting tiles before you attempt this option. 

Which type of countertop is best?

The best type of countertop for you depends on your budget and design preferences. Granite counters are popular because they’re elegant, durable and difficult to replicate with synthetic materials. Granite wears well and requires very little maintenance. When it’s treated with a quality sealer, it’s almost maintenance-free, as well.

While granite has been a top choice for kitchen remodels over the years, you have a number of other choices, as well. Here are some of the benefits of different types of countertops: 

  • Ceramic tile: Affordable and DIY-friendly.
  • Concrete: Durable, scratch-resistant and customizable.
  • Engineered stone: More stain-resistant than natural stone and easy to clean.
  • Laminate: Affordable with many color and design options.
  • Marble: Beautiful appearance and heat-resistant.
  • Stainless steel: Stain-resistant and easy to install.
  • Quartz: Variety of colors and design. 
  • Wood: Warm and beautiful appearance, with a variety of wood types to choose from.

When contacting countertop professionals near you, you can also ask for their advice on which type of countertop will work best for your budget and goals.

What is the most durable type of countertop?

Quartz is one of the most durable countertop materials. It's made of crushed quartz stone and polymers to create a tough surface that looks like natural stone but is extremely durable. 

What is the easiest countertop to maintain?

Laminate is one of the easiest countertop materials to maintain because it’s non-porous and easy to clean with mild soap and water.

How can I save money on countertops?

Saving money on countertops is possible. Here are some ways to cut costs:

  • Stick to materials that are below your budget (think: laminate or tile).
  • Shop around when choosing materials and hiring a pro (get estimates from at least three different professionals).
  • Keep the extra costs (plumbing hook-ups, sinks, faucets, etc.) in mind. In some cases, you may want to handle these aspects separately.

Talk with a local countertop installation pro about how to keep your countertop costs down. They may have suggestions about which lower-priced materials will meet your needs without sacrificing style.
