New Kitchen Countertops for a Kentlands Home

New Kitchen Countertops for a Kentlands Home 

 

The Kentlands community is now 25 years old and it is time for some home owners to upgrade their kitchens. Our home was built in 1994 and we still had laminate kitchen countertops. If we sell the home, home buyers now prefer other materials. We did some searching and pricing and made the decision to purchase new quartz countertops which have now been installed. Quartz is more expensive to granite but requires little maintenance. 

Dolores and I worked with Design Consultant Chris Nader at Granite Works at 1090 Taft Street in Rockville, Maryland 20850. They provided the countertops, installation, a new double stainless steel sink, facet and soap dispenser. Separately, we purchased a new garbage disposal and it was installed at the same time. If you have a gas cooktop, make sure the reconnection is included in the contract. I prefer an all inclusive contract. There was some minor drywall damage that will not be corrected by the installers.

Chef Dolores is happy with the new look. I will talk about appliances in another blog.
