The smarter (and greener) way to renovate – with less mess and less stress

Say hello to eco-friendly transformations that are easy to do!

If the thought of the cost, fuss and stress of renovations has you turning a blind eye to your dated cabinets and plain kitchen countertops, you’re not alone.

For years, Selena Blachford avoided making changes to her home, fearing the hassle of renovations – after all they can be costly, messy and can take a long time. As someone who loves to cook, sacrificing her space for weeks was out of the question.

Luckily, she discovered Granite Transformations – and the smarter way to renovate.

This local team specializes in kitchen and bathroom countertops and surfaces, mosaic tiles and cabinet refacing with little-to-no demolition, stress or mess.

Choose from a variety of collections, whether you’re after the timeless look of marble or the more industrial feel of concrete, they have something for everyone. Plus, with surfaces that are resistant to stains, heat, scratches, mold and mildew, without ever needing to be resealed, they’re built to last.

Eco-friendly products, eco-friendly process

For her home, Selena chose a recycled glass based quartz, which afforded her the sparkle of glass and the durability of quartz. Etherium by e-stone countertops and surfaces are made of up to 72% post-consumer recycled products.

“Knowing that I didn’t have to rip out my kitchen was obviously a huge appeal for me, but to be able to save landfill mass while getting a renewable product was especially important,” Selena notes.

“Our unique installation process has kept 325,000 tons of waste out of landfills so far,” says April Peterson, Marketing Coordinator for Granite Transformations.

Renovations made easy

Measurements were taken and Selena prepared for installation day by removing her kitchen sink, faucet and her drop-in range.

Arriving with eight pieces in total, the team outfitted four to place over her existing countertops with another four used for the backsplash. The installation was complete in just over five hours – and three days before Christmas – with no issues!

“This experience was truly fantastic, I can’t say enough about how much I appreciate the work that was done – I’m still in awe with how everything looks,” Selena reflects. “I’ve been living in this space for 24 years and I now want to be back in that room again, thanks to them.”
