To make a very long story short my experience with southern stone surfaces was a complete nightmare. It took 36 days, two appointments for measuring, three different installs due to mismeasuring, a week with my $300 sink left in the the bottom of a cabinet along with no countertops or running water, I had to install and uninstall faucets and plumbing 3 times, never a returned phone call and unanswered emails, and debiting my bank account, unauthorized, for the remaining balance weeks before the project was completed. It was only after I showed up at their office infuriated that an owner finally spoke with me, (for the one and only time through all of this). And lied right to my face. So my advice is to enter at your own risk or take your chance with their competitor one block down the street.
Just had my kitchen remodeled by the folks at Showplace Design Center/Wholesale Granite Warehouse and could not be happier. Had been looking at HD and other box stores but got a custom kitchen for what the HD quote I got gave me cheap stock cabinets and granite. We went with custom cherry cabinets and absolute black granite. Looks stunning! Turn around time was also half of what HD was going to take. Would use again and highly recommend to others.
