Countertop Providers & Kitchen Renovations


 Brown Fantasy Granite

If you have been dreaming of a new kitchen renovation, it is more than likely that countertops are high on your wishlist. Countertop options can be somewhat overwhelming as there are lots of different materials and finishes to choose from. Whether you want granite countertops, marble, quartz, butcher block, or perhaps cement, choosing the right countertop can make or break your kitchen remodel design. It is also important to make sure that you choose the right countertop provider. While that may not be something that is on your radar, it makes a big impact on the quality of the product you receive, along with the price tag. 

Countertop Providers That Work With CQC Home

At CQC Home, we are very selective when it comes to choosing the countertop providers that we work with. After all, we want our clients to have a good experience from start to finish. That means working with brands that we trust to deliver high-quality products, on time, and within budget. We have handpicked three countertop providers that we developed excellent working relationships with over time. This ensures that when you choose CQC Home for your renovation project, you have plenty of countertop options to choose from and can rely on the quality of your selection. 

Carolina Custom Kitchen & Bath

Carolina Custom Kitchen and Bath has been serving the Raleigh area from their downtown Apex, NC showroom since 2005. Owners Gresham and Jennifer Riggs are very familiar with the design/build process as Greshman is a former builder himself. They pride themselves on delivering customer satisfaction and believe in providing high-quality products at the best price. 

We like working with Carolina Custom Kitchen & Bath for their reliability and quality products. They specialize in professional stone fabrication and installation, which allows clients to choose from a variety of countertop surfaces for their kitchen, bath, or other home projects. You can truly achieve a one of a kind look and feel.

United Granite

United Granite is a well-established brand that has been offering natural and engineered stone products for more than 20 years. With a location in Durham, NC, United Granite is a countertop provider right in our backyard. We have worked with them on many successful projects throughout the Triangle and we are always thrilled with the outcome. 

Clients can choose from popular countertop favorites like granite, marble, or travertine, or they can also choose from a variety of engineered countertops like Cambria or Silestone. United Granite specializes in kitchen countertops, as well as bathroom vanities, stone fireplaces, stone furnishings, or even flooring. The possibilities for CQC Home clients are endless.

East Coast Granite & Marble

East Coast Granite & Marble is a family-owned and operated company with multiple locations throughout the Raleigh area. They work solely with natural granite, quartz, and marble countertop surfaces, so if a client is interested in natural stone, they are an excellent choice. 

We have been working with this family business for years and not only do they provide excellent results for CQC Home projects, but they also offer our clients great prices with a quick turnaround. They are very service-oriented and after choosing their stone style and color, clients can sit back and relax and trust that they will love their finished product. 

Why Your Builder Should Have Good Relationship With Countertop Providers

Not all builders take the time to build and nurture relationships with countertop providers. That’s unfortunate, because it truly makes a difference for customers. At CQC Home, the homeowners that we work with get to see firsthand the benefits of our established relationships with local countertop manufacturers.

We are able to offer clients high-quality materials at cheaper prices. Beyond that, our home renovation projects run smoother – staying on time and within the client’s budget. Having an established relationship with these countertop providers means that communication is always easier and these brands know what we expect from the process. We are able to work together to ensure a great outcome for both companies and especially our customers. 
If you are interested in a new kitchen renovation for your home, or perhaps considering a bathroom makeover or other stone project, we encourage you to contact us today. We would love to introduce you to the great, local countertop providers that we are proud to work with.
