Cheap Granite: 10 Most Competitively Priced Granites

Sat, Feb, 2014 Jesus Alberto Mouzo

We all come across projects where budgets are very limited  from time to time where a unique and luxurious but cheap granite is required.

In the stone industry we regularly work on restricted budgets due to the fact that stone is usually one of the last items to be installed on a project. By the time the stone installation is due, most budgets are usually reaching or even over its original limit.

This is when finding cheap granite of good source and quality comes into play.

Price in stones vary according to:

1) Location: as an example, if a material is quarried at the top of a mountain it will be more expensive than doing so at ground level.

2) Availability: just like such as gold and silver, granite is a natural product which means it is limited and can't be man-made. The less there is left on earth, the more the stone will cost.

3) Consistency: some granite blocks are very consistent in appearance and pattern which allow for most of the quarried to be used, these will probably be amongst the cheap granite options. Others can allow usage as low as 25% of the total quarried. Such low percentage increases the final price of the stone.

With this in mind we have put together a list of cheap granite from different sources for projects of different scales, which we are confident may come handy:
