Installed granite costs range from $30 to $155 per square foot. The cost varies depending on factors such as granite quality, complexity of the installation, where the granite is purchased and who the installer is.
High-end granite slabs with great color variations and veining are generally more expensive than plainer granite. Thicker slabs and certain edge selections can add greatly to the price. Purchasing granite from a wholesaler rather than a home improvement store may be less expensive. More complex installations with many corners and seams also add to the price. Do-it-yourself installations save the cost of hiring the supplier or a handyman to install, while hiring a custom builder or high-end contractor is the most expensive option.
