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 Ashburn countertop installers
Kevin B.
My countertops came out looking great, thankfully! They were cut perfectly to shape, and the fabricators had a careful and good eye cutting the stone so the pattern came out looking really nice. This was obviously one of the most important parts of the job which is why I did not rate lower. The experience of getting everything installed was pretty bad, with many headaches and extra costs. If I were to do another countertop job, I would pick another company to work with, for several reasons. 1. The price was originally quoted below others. In the end, the price ended up being more than I expected and more than other quotes. As we settled out with the final payment, Dave stated he was taking off some money for all the trouble I'd been put through, but charged me the amount originally agreed to. I don't appreciate this kind of nonsense. If you're not giving me a discount, don't be cagey about it. 2. The installers absconded my power drill when they left my home, mistaking it for their own, an honest mistake and they did return it. 3. The installers did now show up on the day planned and did not call me to let me know. I reached out after waiting 45 minutes after the window they gave me, and was told they were 1.5 hours away. No idea when they'd be done what they were doing. I was standing by and was later told they were not coming that day, but would come the next day. I should have never agreed to them coming the next day as they finished well after when they were supposed to, causing me to miss a doctors appointment. I had told them about this, very important appointment, 4 separate times and was told it was not going to be an issue. Before I needed to leave I told them I needed to leave and they said they were finished but kept working. Perhaps it was because of the problems they encountered. 4. The installers put several dents into my kitchen walls. I told Dave and he offered to have someone take a look but since I am having the place painted soon I opted not to. 5. I later discovered the installers broke a piece of piping for my garbage disposal, did not properly mount the dishwasher to the countertop, and also broke the framework of parts of the cabinets and then caulked them back together but did not tell me about it (with one cabinet sort of hilariously caulked shut). Since discovering all of this I opted not to reach out to have this company resolve these problems, but they are worth noting in this review.
