We do not inventory slabs at our shop. We can bring small sample pieces of basic granite, but the best way to select material for your project is to visit our slab distributor in person.
Steer clear of companies who try to limit you to slabs they have in stock at their shop. No where else will you be afforded more choices in quality, size, and color than at a slab yard.
Our customers, no matter what their budget, are always welcome and encouraged to hand select their slabs. Granite and marble are natural stones which will vary slightly in color and movement as slabs are taken from different parts of the quarry.
Large, room sized chunks of stone are blasted from quarry walls and sliced like bread into countertop thick “slabs”. Slabs sliced from the same block are grouped as “lots”. At the slab distributor you will notice that lots labeled as the same color can be quite different. This is an effect that is impossible to see when attempting to select your material from a 4″ x 4″ sample piece.
We prefer to purchase our slabs from one of three distributors in Jacksonville. We have found that their combination of material pricing, selection, central location, and customer care integrate well with our company. Feel free to walk-in anytime and tell them TC Kitchen Center is your fabricator.
You may choose to browse undisturbed, or a staff member will assist you. Slab yards only sell raw materials to fabricators, so they will not give you pricing specific to your kitchen during your visit. They will, however, be able to guide you towards basic, mid-level, and exotic stones.
