Showroom Manager Patty Krabacher greets customers as they enter the beautiful Granite Transformations showroom.
If you’re looking for a new and exciting alternative to traditional countertops, backsplashes, floors and more, you’ll want to check out Granite Transformations. With nearly 100 showrooms across the United States, Granite Transformations has been doing business in Wichita for the past eight years and in Tulsa for the past 18 months. Granite Transformations Co-Owner Clay Morse says the company is proud to present their new concept to the Tulsa community.
“We are the only company in the world doing what we do,” says Morse. “We’ve taken natural granite stone and made it better with engineering.” All Granite Transformations countertops – whether glass or granite – are made from recycled material and require no demolition of existing fixtures. This means installation experts come to your home and take precise measurements of existing countertops, custom build the new countertops off premise, and then overlay them onto the old countertop surface. “This process saves our customers time and money while increasing the overall value of their home.” And the really nice thing about the process is that you don’t have to go through the hassle of construction and the associated mess.
“Trend Stone is the company’s core product line. These slabs are approximately 95 percent natural stone mixed with a specially formulated polymer to provide greater strength and durability than traditional granite,” says Morse. “The resulting engineered surface is heat, stain and scratch resistant, and is virtually maintenance free.”
Granite Transformations engineered stone products provide a beautiful grout-free alternative to tile and can be used in any part of the bathroom including vanities, floors, walls and shower stalls. This is a truly unique concept that is convenient, durable, and requires almost no maintenance. Projects are usually completed in only one or two days. “We have our own professionally trained, expert installers,” says Morse, “and we never hire subcontractors to do a new or remodeling project.”
You can see samples of all the beautiful products offered by Granite Transformations in their showroom at 5151 S. Mingo, Ste. C, where you’ll be pleasantly greeted by Patty or Lynn as soon as you enter the store. Most customers like the fact that the engineered granite products are made in the U.S.A.
The unique product lineup includes Trend Stone, Trend Glass, and Trend Mosaics. All are manufactured from the finest natural materials from select quarries. You’ll also find a beautiful array of color and design choices for your home or office. Each product is backed with the Granite Transformations Limited Lifetime Warranty. With new products and ideas being introduced each year, Granite Transformations products are finding favor with homeowners, commercial and domestic interior designers, architects, builders and developers.
Each revolutionary product line has been extensively tested and proven to be heat, stain, and scratch resistant. Their diamond polished surfaces makes cleaning a breeze, you can cut vegetables directly on the countertop without fear of leaving cut marks, and you can even place a hot skillet on the countertop.
The reasons to use Granite Transformations seem rather obvious. No dirty grout lines, a stunning new look given to your kitchen or bathroom, no demolition involved during the installation process, and minimal disruption and mess. The products can be used for remodeling or for new countertops. “You get a gorgeous new look that will outperform ordinary granite because our products are non-porous and stain resistant,” says Morse.
