e 2997 USA: I am remodeling and will
want to purchase enough granite for 80sq.ft of counter top. Also, possibly
approximately 700 to 800 sq. ft of granite floor tile.
I could have it
shipped to a company in the USA or Canada as I live on the border in Detroit. At
present the Canadian prices for the types they have are about 30% less,
installed than the American product of equal quality.
I like the red
color granites I see on the findstone site. Indian granites
like Ruby Red, Kaddur Red, Imperial Red, Seemankati Red, Magalgudde Red.
Chinese reds that I like are Full River and Sichuan Red or Taiwan New
Imperial Red. In the States and Canada the countertops are cut from larger
slabs then finished on the edges. One side is polished, I believe the slabs
arrive polished on one side. I believe there are 2 thickness; 1 1/4 in and
thinner type. I want the thicker type of granite.
The finished product
is sold by the square foot. I believe I could have a local company receive
delivery, cut and install the product. What I need to know is are any of the
reds available from you for counter-tops of the thickness I desire?
many slabs are needed for approximately 80 sq. ft of 24 in
What is the cost of the slabs and the shipping, duty etc.
either to Windsor or Toronto Canada or Detroit, USA whichever is least
expensive. Can you arrange for shipping from China or Taiwan?
How long does
it take to arrive in the US or Canada?
I know this is probably not a large
order for you. However, if the transaction works out to everyone's satisfaction
it may open up a market with the local stone market here. I have not seen these
colors locally. Do you supply counter tops in a finished form to my
measurements? May 17. Contact

I found the stone,
tropical brown, at a Canadian dealer for approximately $50 US installed. I felt
for the amount I needed it would be better to go with the local supplier.
Also, I was able to pick the exact slabs I wanted.
I felt the service was
worth the extra cost.
your site very helpful. The prices offered seemed very good. I was able to
purchase locally from a supplier who will install it for me. I bought in Canada
the dollar exchange rate is very favorable. One of your suppliers was in the USA
and they had very good prices, however I wanted to select my own slab and the
installation was also helpful. I had not really considered the weight of the
finished counters. I may buy tile in the future.

form to your measurements and deliver to your door in eight weeks. The prices is
