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.

Countertop installation looks excellent. They did a fantastic job. They were not extremely punctual, but were very communicative. I would recommend them!

Prompt and efficient prelim and final measurements taken with countertop still installed and new set in place. Slight mixup on delivery and install date (was told "Wednesday install" and was shocked when they showed up with the counter ready to install - thought there was no way they could have turned it around that quickly but they did...was easy to reschedule install but could have had my counter sooner if I was on top of things). Countertop looks AMAZING and was installed exactly as I was told it was going to be. Highly recommend Mark and his installation team!

Top notch service. Very professional yet friendly. They came in a did a great job with the countertops. Granite was beautiful and cut right the first time. The attention to detail with regrads to seams and everything else was superb. Will use them again in the future.

I can’t say enough about Mark and his team. After our brief exchange on the app, Mark came to my house with several stone samples. The countertops were installed 3 days later and they did the backsplash titles the next day. The team was on time, professional, and they cleaned after themselves. My kitchen looks just like I envisioned it. Excellent work and customer service! I will definitely use this company for future work!!!

We R Counter installed counter tops in the kitchen and they did an awesome job at a very competitive price. These guys were pleasant and extremely professional and knowledgeable. They listened to my ideas and they do not hesitate to provide advice, but they are not pushy with it. The entire process took about 10 days. The actual installation took only 4 days. There was a slight issue on the first day but it was quickly rectified. The whole process was smooth and communication was great. The new countertops were very professionally installed and looks beautiful. We are so thrilled by their craftsmanship and professionalism. I would use their service again and recommend to others. I love these guys!!!
