Caesarstone countertops have become quite the rage these days but what do people really think of them? Are they worth the investment or would you be better off looking at your other options?
In order to answer these questions we decided to turn to real-life homeowners that had made a purchase and then let others know both the good points and the not-so-great points we discovered through Caesarstone reviews written by actual owners.
Positive online reviews
Approximately 95% of the reviews we’ve looked through have been extremely positive. Most people that have decided to choose Caesarstone love their new countertop and are completely satisfied with their purchase. We haven’t come across one yet that is unhappy with the slab itself. The negative comments we’ve seen have always been related to a problem with the installation.
Once the Caesarstone slab has arrived and is ready to be put in, the installation team needs to be in top form to get the stone correctly placed on your counter. Most companies employ a highly-trained team of technicians that have placed hundreds of these countertops in people’s homes in the past but unfortunately, some companies hire casual or part-time workers to do the job.
If anything goes wrong during the installation, your countertop just isn’t going to look right. A crew of professionals will be able to match up all of the seams, do precise cuts and line the edges up perfectly. A second-rate installation crew just isn’t going to be able to make your countertop shine the way it’s supposed to with a flawless fit.
You can inspect the slab
When the slab arrives you’ll have the opportunity to look at it thoroughly to make sure that it isn’t defective. From that point on, any problems with your countertop will be directly related to the installation of it.
If you are at all unhappy with the quartz countertop you receive you can contact the company. These counters are fully guaranteed and you’ll be sent a replacement quickly. Only rarely does a slab arrive with any problems since quality control is extremely strict at the point of manufacturing.
You don’t have to worry at all about a Caesarstone countertop according to the numerous reviews that we’ve read. The thing you do need to keep an eye on is the installation team. Find out how qualified they are, how long they have been installing countertops and most importantly what type of guarantee goes along with the installation.
Where To Buy Caesarstone
MOst people don’t know this but Caesarstone is sold in the U.S. through Ikea. What you’ll really like a bout buying a countertop from them is that you can see entire kitchen outfitted with it rather than buying a new countertop based upon a small sample of what the counter should look like and pictures in a catalog.
You’ll find the prices to be very comparable to the cost of quartz countertops from most other manufacturers. If you doubt that you’re getting a good deal through Ikea than shop around and get at least two more quotes. The best way to make sure that you’re not being taken advantage of by a high priced contractor is to compare his prices and reputation against his peers. If that make you uncomfortable than I recommend that you use the reviews on Angie’s List to help you find someone that you can trust.
