The Rebounding Denver Construction Industry – What It Means For Granite Product Availability

Denver’s spike in residential and commercial construction permits is testament to the region’s resurrected construction industry. For many companies in the construction industry, 2013 was the beginning of black ink on the books again. Many good contractors and product suppliers did not make it for many reasons, economic upheaval not withstanding. However, according to industry experts, 2014 is expected to eclipse 2013 with more construction projects, and a broadening diversity of products and services for those companies who were able to survive the last five years.

Only those positioned to survive survived.

Granite Imports survived because we did not owe a lot of money on our buildings or inventory; we had strong relationships with quarries who were willing to work with us on consignment; and most importantly, we have loyal customers who, instead of sourcing the cheapest granite for countertops, stayed the course of demanding exceptional granite products in their construction projects. Now, as demand grows, Granite Imports is growing our inventory.If you’re new construction or remodeling involves granite countertops, we have restocked our basic materials such as Santa Cecilia, Venetian Wave and Uba Tuba; and we have also replenished our stock of some of our more popular Brazilian materials like Carnival, Cianitus (polished and leathered), Golden Taupe and Snow Flakes! In our latest travels to Brazil, also found two new unique quartzites: the Picaso and PerlaVenata.

Granite Imports has received more than 45 containers of material in the last month – that’s over 1400 slabs of new stock from which to choose for a granite counter in your kitchen, bath or commercial common area.

Premium Materials

Though a vast array of materials are available in the market that you can choose for your kitchen countertops, it is better to go for a material that you can be sure will provide instant success at installation as well as long-term durability. This is the difference between big box stores/granite liquidators and Granite Imports – the customers who buy our stone materials experience a noticeable difference in quality.

Whether you prefer Santa Cecilia, Uba Tuba, or Venetian Wave for your construction project, Granite Imports has the most diversified options in its material inventory to help you make the best choice for your granite counters.

Innovative Designs and Patterns

Another popular trend that has made granite kitchen countertops even more valuable and attractive is the availability of patterned material. Having unique design elements, these materials not only catch the viewers’ attention, but also enhance the overall look of the room. You might want to closely observe these patterned granite samples as they can become a means to fill your kitchen with a design that is truly unique.

Redefining Aesthetic Taste

Choosing the right color, pattern, or texture for your granite counter may not be something you can do on your own. So research your option before finalizing a choice. You may even want to discuss your needs, challenges, and budget with Granite Imports industry experts, who have an average of 15 years of experience in the granite industry.
