My mother decided to redo her kitchen about a year ago. I went to several retailers with her to price counters and installation. Home Depot by far had the best price. They contract installation out to local contractors, which I thought was great. The counters were beautiful, however there was a flaw in one counter and it cracked in a week. My mother called home depot and they were very understanding and sent someone in three days to look at it. Less than a week later the counter was repaired at no cost to my mother. They were also very flexible with her busy work schedule!
