Quartz Countertops for kitchen

From start to finish the team at Artistic GQ Granite were amazing!! Piero was prompt with all his communication - I'm not sure he sleeps as he would respond immediately to any questions day or night. The quote we received was very reasonable and beat the socks off all others. I do not regret going with Piero and his team for one minute. We went to the warehouse to pick our quartz and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of choices available. We found our dream quartz; the final product looks amazing. The team is top notch; Tony who came to do our measuring was on time, polite, answered every question I had, and finished his measurements in a third of the time we were asked to keep open for the task. The installation was completed ahead of schedule, and the installers were fantastic too. Our puppy even escaped from his crate when my husband had to go out for a bit and when he came home the installers were keeping him busy throwing his ball outside. Piero and his team definitely went above and beyond in their customer service and the final product absolutely exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.

Kitchen Counter Tops

What started out as a toss of the dice resulted in a super experience and an outstanding counter tops. We found Piero (Artistic GQ Granite & Quartz - 647.299.5526) on Kijiji. I wasn’t sure that Kijiji was the place to source a high-end kitchen counter top but on a whim, I followed the links, reviewed his work and then sent an inquiry. I don’t think he sleeps as right from the start all inquiries were responded to quickly. Initially we received a detailed package that outlined how to proceed to get a rough estimate. Within a day, we had a quote lower than any price we had and an invitation to go to a warehouse and select or own slabs of granite. It was an awesome experience walking around the huge slabs of stone and putting our name on our own slab.
I was doing all the work to renovate the kitchen and had 6 to 8 weeks of work ahead of me. Not a problem for Piero. We purchased the stone and he stored it for us until we were ready. Every so often he dropped us a quick note to check on our progress. Other than emails, a couple of phone calls and some photo albums on the internet I had no information on the person I was dealing with. At one point, I said to my wife I hope this works out.
On Saturday, June 24th I finished installing the cabinets and fired off an email to Piero that we were ready for stone. By the end of the day Monday we had picked edging and the following morning Tony arrived to electronically measure everything to cut the stone so if fit perfectly. It was then when we realized we had bought a sink that was too big. We let Piero know and he helped us select a sink from his supplier and got us a great price. On the July 8th, the stone arrived with two installers. They were in and out in 3 hours. The stone, two sinks and some back splashes were gleaming. Everything fit perfectly. The guys cleaned up and buffed the counters before they left. There were polite, professional and answered all our questions. I can be a bit of a pain because I like to ask lots of questions and I am very critical as I have been renovating my houses for 35 years. I am super impressed with the workmanship and the attention to small details. To create the front edges a strip of stone is adhered to the front and then the corner treatment is ground on. Piero’s people took the time to match the stone so the veins in the stone of the two-piece line-up. When they cut the stone all the pieces lined up when they were installed, even the power room. There are no seams, each piece was cut from the slabs we picked so they had to line up each part so the grain would match once installed.
I will be honest, I was a bit skeptical when I picked a contractor out on Kijiji. I have dealt with a lot sales people and tradesmen (I am a millwright/machinist and run a small business after hours) and Piero exceeded our expectations. All communications were informative, timely and professional. Piero was very friendly on the phone and from the first communications I sensed he took great pride in the work he and his team do.
I have already given his name to a few friends and said they would be wise to give Piero an opportunity to do any work they had. I am the guy who never gives anyone a 10 out of 10, in this case Piero and his team gets full marks.
When the installers left my wife and I enjoyed a shot of scotch to toast our new kitchen. The next thing I did was to send Piero this email;

We are over the top with how pleased we are with the new counter tops. Your guys just left – both were professional, polite, meticulous and took great pride in their work.
Thank you for the quality workmanship and the friendly way you led us through the steps. I have high standards, you have exceeded my expectations.
I have been and will continue to promote your name to anyone looking to do a kitchen.
Have a great weekend.

I have included a few pictures. We still have miles of trim to install along the bottom edge and to close in the tops but we are getting there.

Excellent communication. Time lines were kept, in fact counter tops were installed a week early!

The entire process was enjoyable from picking out our stone slabs to the installation.

Would highly recommend and use again.

Quartz for our kitchen

Piero was a pleasure to work with, a true professional with amazing customer service. He made the project so much easier by providing detailed step-by-step directions and was available for any questions we had. We are extremely happy with the the quartz we got as well as Matt and his crew for installing it for us. Thanks you again!

Kitchen countertops

I found this company on Kijiji. I sent them the measurements of my countertop, which is quite large, and I got a quote online. I was impressed with the price so I decided to go ahead with this company. I had gotten a couple other quotes and theirs was the best and they didn't try to talk me out of what I wanted. The said that within 2 weeks of my choosing the granite that I wanted it would be installed. My countertops were installed in less than the 2 weeks and I am so impressed with the installation. My counter is beautiful. We asked if they would be able to do it in 3 pieces and they were able to do it even though it was extremely heavy. I would strongly recommend this company if you are looking for new countertops. Piero is very knowledgable and very easy to talk to and understanding. He was prompt at returning any calls that I made to him if he was unable to answer when I called.

Granite kitchen counter installation

We were looking for quality granite counter tops with a budget in mind, and a fairly quick installation date. We were shopping around and found Piero's company on the internet . We made contact and were very impressed how easy it was to obtain a quote and choose our granite. Through out the installation process, that took less than 2 weeks, the service provided was friendly and professional by all of Artistic's staff and there were no surprises. It was clear that extra effort went into to cutting the counter top exactly as we requested.
Piero is a pleasure to work with. We are totally satisfied with their service and our counter top.

Kitchen counter renovations

Extremely happy with all aspects of this project completed by Artistic GQ. Piero has excellent communication skills and took us through this process with kid gloves. His staff are amazing from the templating of the project right through to installation. I love my new Galaxy Black Granite countertops. I would highly recommend this company and by the way, they were also the lowest of three quotes.
