This was a big job and they started a t 8 in the morning and finished after 6. If I had replaced the laminate with laminate or with a hard stone this would have cost in excess of $12000! The crew were wonderful very polite and worked like Trojans and got it done. It has lifted the kitchen and master suite. If you are buying a new house or condo do not upgrade to expensive stone save a lot take the laminate and upgrade with this product. If you think about it - you pay for the upgrade to stone via the mortgage -- when you add in the interest its a staggering amount and this product look s like the real thing. I am really happy. I have recommended the company to someone at work and they are going to get this deluxe treatment. I also have a rental property and will be upgrading with Tim and his company soon.
