Default Granite Transformations ?

Has anyone used them to 'reface' their kitchen/bath counters?

I would love granite, but I just don't think we would get the $$ back when we sell the house.

Opinions? Experience? I appreciate the insights.

Welcome MrsSully:

In my opinion, using the one piece granite tops is terribly expensive and probably won't be recovered. However, if you use granite tile to cover the countertops and the backsplash area you get a pleasant appearance, much lower cost and a good possibility of recovering the expense.

TileGuy is a member on here and can give expert advice on how to use the tile for countertops. I won't step into his territory.
