Granite countertops cost more than most other materials, including solid surface and plastic laminate, but the price of granite has gone down over the years as better methods of cutting and polishing the stone have been developed.

Granite countertops are now available for as low as $40 per square foot, though cutouts for sinks and stove as well as custom fitting may not be included in the price. Watch this video to find out more.

  1. I have a laminated formica counter top in good condition. I want to install a new 12×12 granite tiles. Do I need to remove my current formica top or just secured a backing board over it and start my project?
    Please help me over this issue.
    Happy Holidays .

    • Hi Felipe,
      If your plastic laminate top has a good, solid plywood underlayment, you could screw down 1/4″ cement backer board and tile over it. If it’s a molded plastic laminate top with a particle board underlayment, I would removed it and start from scratch with a plywood base topped with backer board. Good luck with your project!
