We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen and we have just traveled 500 miles to a granite distributor to chose our granite. We picked Colonial Cream and are now working with out contractor on the details of the installation. Since deciding on the Colonial Cream, I have read on your website that this particular granite can be problematic. Now I am anxious about our choice. Have we made a mistake? Is it safe to proceed or should we reconsider our choice. I am losing sleep over this? Can you help?
Thank you, Maria
You have to remember that people write to me about their problems, not their wonderful experiences with granite. For every bad granite experience, there are thousands of joyful ones we never hear about.
Just as with any large purchase, you need to perform your due diligence. Finding my website was a step in the right direction. The ‘Home Owners Checklist‘ will guide you in a lot of the questions you should consider.
I am not surprised that you traveled so far for Colonial Cream. It is gorgeous granite and will positively be beautiful in your kitchen. It is a low maintenance granite once it is sealed with a penetrating granite sealer.
You really have made an excellent choice and just make sure that you are in good hand with your fabricator by checking some references. I want to hear back from you when the granite is installed and find out how happy you are about it, ok?

Hello Tom, Thank you for taking the time to reply to my concern about Colonial Cream granite. Just as you said, the granite turned out beautiful and, having picked a reputable fabricator, we are indeed happy with the results.
Thank you again,
