When choosing stone countertop materials, you’ll be faced with more than just a huge variety of stones to choose from; you’ll also have to choose between custom countertops (full slab), and (prefab) countertops, so which is the right choice for your countertop?
Here are the pros and cons of each to help you decide:
Prefabricated stone countertops are made of the same high-quality materials as their customer counterparts. The only difference is that they were cut to certain standard dimensions before being delivered to the distributor. This means that they only come in specific sizes and shapes, so if you have an unusual space that you want to put your countertop, prefabricated counters might not be an option.
However, if there is a prefabricated cut that fits your countertop needs, they’re a great option, because a prefabricated counter will usually cost you a bit less. Plus, installation is typically much quicker, saving you even more money.
Full Slab Countertops
When you purchase custom countertops, you have a lot more control over what you get. You can choose the color, thickness, and shape of your counters—but you’re going to pay a higher price tag for it. When going this route, you select the exact slab you want, then the Fabricator measures your space and does all the cutting to make the slab fit. This also gives your counters a seamless look, because they’ll be cut from a single slab.
There’s no right or wrong choice between prefab and Full slab, and most importantly, G & G provides both!

The Trump administration announced plans late yesterday for a 10% ad valorem tariff on $200 billion of imports from China in more than 6,000 product categories.
The list includes nearly all dimensional natural stone, agglomerated slabs (which include quartz surfaces) and an assortment of other hard surfaces, including some ceramic tiles.
In retaliation, the Chinese, this fall will begin to raise prices for U.S. importers a whopping 10-20%. American consumers, wholesalers, retailers, and fabricators (like us), get ready for prices to jump!😱
