Couldn't be happier with SDC Stone. We are building a home in South Lake Tahoe and they are doing all the granite. Sam has been wonderful to work with. We live in the Bay Area and trying to do this virtually has been a challenge at times. Sam and team have been flexible, reliable and very helpful from getting the granite to helping design different edges in each room thru installation. His work is beautiful, a true tribute to the craft. Sam not only cares about the end product, he makes the entire experience painless. I highly recommend SDC Stone!

Complete fabrication and installation of prefab granite counters. The job was completed as scheduled and it was done well. Very good to work with.
Jim .C (Carson City, Nevada)
We bought two slabs of stone from SDC Stone. Everything was fine and there were no problems at all and it was very good. They were very nice and also very helpful. Their price was top-notch although it was no different than anybody else. It was very good and they were highly recommended.

They came into my home and did a partial tear out of my kitchen where my sink was to remove the material that was moldy. When he came to measure for the estimate replaced with temporary tops. He made the templates. We then went and picked out the stone, it was delivered to his shop is located in South Lake Tahoe. He discussed the type of options for top or under mount skins. Backsplash options and edge detail. Once the stone was delivered to his shop it was cut and fabricated. Sam then came back to do the installation for my kitchen and bathroom. He was very neat quick and professional. He even replaced the plumbing parts under my skins in both the bathroom and kitchen. It went very well. I am very pleased with the work that was done. Sam the owner was very easy to work with he went above and beyond. His shop is located in South Lake Tahoe and still was willing to take on a project in Carlsbad. I would highly recommend working with this company.

MAINTENANCE AND CARE INFORMATION SHEET:
Granite is regarded as one of hardest of the natural stones with distinctive characteristics such as color variations and pitting, making your counters all the more exceptional. Being a low maintenance material, scratching and staining on surfaces could be considered rare. This does not mean that accidents will not occur.
We would like to take this opportunity to provide some recommendations for easy care and maintenance of your stone to assure your granite’s radiance.
During the installation of your stone a coat of impregnator (sealer) was applied, which provides a long lasting shield to protect the inside of the stone from stains and contaminants. Continued, yet easy and minimal maintenance will be required in order for you to preserve the stone’s natural beauty and rely on it as an excellent surface.
SDC suggests that you maintain your stone yearly by applying a thin coat of standard sealer (we recommend 511 Impregnator which can be purchased at most hardware stores or home improvement stores) to the surface.
Here are some simple instructions for sealing maintenance:
Pour sealer onto clean rag.
Cover small area with sealer (SDC suggests working in small areas). Allow sealer to penetrate approx 1 minute; but not allowing it to fully dry onto surface.
Taking clean rag, buff off any excess.
– Most granite surfaces can be easily cleaned using a soapy washcloth or sponge and hot water.
– A mixture of white vinegar and water, brings out the shine and luster.
– A razor-blade slanted at a slight angle can be used to remove stubborn sticky materials.
– Residue can also be removed using “a “000” (or finer) steel wool.
Remember, just because your stone is sealed, does not mean it can not be penetrated. There are nuisances to your stone and you need to take caution when working with materials that stain, for instance:
– Using “Scotch-Brite” and/or abrasive cleansers.
– Ammonia based cleaners as which over a long period of time will dull your stone.
– Red Wine and berries could stain your stone if left unattended.
– Excessive grease and oil puddles could leave a dark stain.
Polished: Due to its high density and non-porous qualities, normal cleaning with a damp cloth and mild detergent will keep your QUARTZ surface looking like the first day it was installed. To avoid dulling the surface’s shine, make sure to use a non-abrasive cleaner, and thoroughly rinse off with water after use. We recommend a thorough cleaning of your QUARTZ surface on a regular basis (because of the patina that can develop on the surface from day from cooking, grease oils in the air) to keep the surface as beautiful as the day it was installed.
Honed: Please understand that HONED, TEXTURED and SUEDE finishes will require more daily maintenance than our polished finishes. Since there is more exposed surface area with honed finishes, metal marks, finger prints and other signs of daily living will show on honed material. Most of these marks can be easily removed with little effort and non-abrasive cleaning products such as Soft Scrub Liquid Gel.
