Why Should I Use Stone Remnants?

Nov 15, 2022 | Premier Countertop Installation and Fabrication

You know us…at Bad Lizard, we want to make the most out of your stone surfaces experience. That’s why we offer stone remnants! Stone remnants are a great way to level up your next small project without breaking the bank. Granite and quartz are stunning, durable options for a wide variety of projects. With remnants, you get the long list of benefits that those stones offer at a fraction of the price. 

What Are Stone Remnants?

Simply put, stone remnants are the leftovers when a slab is cut for a larger project, such as countertops. 

With regard to natural stones like granite and marble, no two slabs are identical. Every slab is unique in nature and appearance. When we purchase our stones, we get them in “bundles.” Bundles are 6-8 slabs consecutively cut from the same block of stone. This allows us to handle projects requiring the use of 2 or more slabs and custom fabricating that project for an extremely elegant look.

When we run out of the stone that comprises that bundle, we’re often left with smaller pieces that aren’t large enough to do full-size kitchen projects. When we order the next bundle of that same material, the differences are noticeable enough that we can’t mix and match the stone from the previous bundle. Therefore, we call these leftover stones “Remnants.”

Why Should I Use Stone Remnants?

As mentioned above, stone remnants are a great way to upgrade your small projects and add the extra wow factor of granite and quartz. The best part is remnants are available at a fraction of the cost per square foot of larger slabs. 

For the same price range as inferior surfaces like laminate, you can have the durability and longevity only a stone surface can provide!

We also have great options for the do-it-yourselfer. We can custom-fabricate vanity tops or other work to their specifications. When finished, they simply pick up their order and install the product.
