Granite Countertops Information
Elberton is home to the granite industry because of the expansive quantities of gray granite found near the busy Georgia town. Dozens of granite quarries mine millions of tons of granite each year that is used primarily for granite monuments, granite headstones and grave markers, granite memorials and granite mausoleums. In addition, much of the granite imported into the United States comes into Elberton because the city has the tools, technology, and expertise to produce the final products purchased in America. For example, granite for granite countertops is not quarried in Elberton, but imported from Italy, South America, China and other countries. Elberton has several granite slab importers and dozens of granite countertop companies. The granite countertop companies serve the North Georgia, Atlanta metro , and South Carolina areas, and some even extend their services into Florida. The same is true for granite used for headstones and memorials in colors other than gray. The large blocks of granite are imported into Elberton and cut into semifinished headstones and memorials and then sold to retailers who do the final engraving at their local facilities.
Granite Monuments, Grave Markers, Headstones
Elberton has many granite monument companies and their granite products include upright monuments, individual grave markers, memorials, cremation containers, memorial benches, war memorials, civic monuments, mausoleums, grave covers, vases, and granite signs. Most of the granite products made in the United States are manufactured in Elberton, Georgia, but a few are produced in Pennsylvania and Oklahoma.
What ever your granite requirement demands, Elberton dealers can supply. More about Granite Monuments & Grave Markers here..

Importers of slabs usually do not fabricate or install countertops, but many of them will let you visit their warehouse along with your granite countertop fabricator to select a slab of granite for your project. Some granite slab importers have web sites where you can see many slabs and select the one you want over the internet. More Granite Countertop Slabs here..
