Sadly, I am not in the countertop business. Granite is the preferred surface and lots of people do the work. Check references diligently. As you know, CA makes doing business almost impossible. (Thanks Jerry Brown) Individual workers can do side jobs for reasonable prices . . . but you need to look carefully.

Good luck

Yeah especially living in San Diego it is always hard to find a contractor who is not ripping you off and will do a good job. Thanks for the advice though. Appreciate it!

Well I have tried it once doing myself but I failed big time. Its a job of a professional and time depends on the size. The bigger the size, more the time it will take. You can consult 2 or 3 professionals before hiring anyone of those.

Hey, I did find a young general contractor who knows everyone in various trades in San Diego. He is based in North County, so it would be better if you are north of I-8 . . . He just did a kitchen remodel including cabinets, drawyers, doors, custom molding, and counter tops in Poway.

Inetrested?

CallMeVilla, thanks for the the offer on the contractor, but I found one that seems to know what he's doing. The job is actually currently going on. I will let you guys know about any updates and hopefully put up pictures of the final product!

How about posting some pics of your project, whether in-progress or done?? People in Poway are interested.
