Have you ever went to your local home improvement store for a counter top and just didn't like what they had in stock? Then the sales person wants you to special order something, but come to find out it's four times as much as the off the shelf stuff. Well, if you're not installing granite or some other natural stone or exotic product, why not fabricate your own. As most of you know, I'm renovating a house from 1890 (though there isn't anything from that time period that I have found) and I have put in new kitchen cabinets and flooring. All of the "stock" counter tops that I found had back splashes on them and to special order was about four times as much. So, I decided to fab my own. Nothing extravagant right now, just particleboard with a laminate covering. I'll add the back splash later (I'm going to use some of the split stone granite all the way across), the thing is it will be custom and the way I want it to look without having to spend hundreds and have to wait weeks on the factory. It's also good experience and a useful skill. Joining the pieces may prove a challenge (over 11 feet of base cabinets on one side), but I'm sure I have it figured out. I get pics up soon.
Property Serv LLC now has financing options available for your projects. Here is how it works; when a home owner hires Property Serv, but does not have enough cash to cover materials, let's say. The home owner can fill out a loan application from PCCU Credit Union, fax it in or drop it by, and can have an answer quickly. The loans can be broken down into manageable monthly payments with great rates and the work can begin. This is a great option to get alot now without breaking the bank. Protecting your investment and your nest egg is important to Property Serv LLC and PCCU Credit Union.
I am ready to start offering granite on the site. I have pics of the split stone pieces and will also offer pavers/floor tiles. The granite will start at $7 per linear foot and if you need it installed I can give you an estimate on that. Take a look at the pictures, this is a really great product, very unique, and all recycled! You an have high end without adding to any landfills and you can have custom at an affordable price. I have samples if you want to see them and will be getting a full sample board soon.
In the near future we will be offering granite pavers, floor tiles, and split face tiles in a variety of colors and shapes for very good prices. We're talking like $7 per square foot for the material (plus install if you like). This is all recycled material, so when you buy, you're keeping this from the landfill! Really this is a win win for everyone and a responsible application of a high end product for affordable prices! Stay tunes and look for granite in the Re-Store.
