I'm changing my countertops and in need of someone to carefully remove the granite from our kitchen perimeter and island. We are repurposing our cabinets and will save them for the quartz countertop addition. Any suggestions on cost of this type of service or company that provides this service?


  • d3 NOH

    The installer can't just remove it?

  • A few years ago I gutted my kitchen and the contractor quoted me $2500 to take out the cabinets, island and granite. I posted an ad on craigslist that any contractor that wanted the granite and cabinets could have them for free if they came and removed them-I got tons of responses and was able to pick the one that I trusted the most not to damage my house. They came and took the whole kitchen out in about 2 hours.

  • @d3: Bought the new countertop at Home Depot. They don't do removal just installation.

    @Burgess: thanks for the suggestion. I was about to post on CL but didn't have to. I asked the contractor renovating our basement if he knew anyone who would want the granite. Luckily, he did! So glad he will remove and haul away for free :)

  • @Burgess I know this thread is old (so I hope you still check here). Do you remember the name of the person who removed your counters? We need the same thing done. Thanks!

  • Does anyone have any recommendations for good countertop removal services? My granite countertops are glued down (like, liquid nails glued) and my stone installation company did not want to (or have the appropriate tools, like maybe an electric heat gun) to remove the countertops without damaging the cabinets.

  • Sprovieri does the installation for Home Depot. DON'T do it. They were terrible, screwed up my kitchen big time and it can't be fixed without really having to trash and redo everything. Plus, the installer from Sprovieri stole one of my husband's tools. Home Depot gave him an inferior tool to replace it after he kept on them forever ( because it technically wasn't a Home Depot employee who took it).

  • Oh jeez, this is a post from July? Ah well, my counter's still jacked so my complaining stands.
