Well, Steve and his great crew did it again!

We moved into a new home recently and were really missing the beautiful kitchen we left behind.

A call to Steve and we now have absolutely gorgeous counter tops and kitchen island.

Call Steve and you won't be disappointed!

S and D did a wonderful job installing granite countertop and tile backsplash in our house. Also, we were able to save money on the material using their contractor discounts. We are very happy with the results and save quite a bit of money on the project. However, we have not moved into the house and they left the heater on overnite during the week or two that they worked on the house. My December electricity bill was over $200. But overall, we would use them again.

The quote from S&D for our granite bar top was 30% lower than the prefab places that we visited, so we were wondering how it would turn out. We couldn't be more happy with the work they did. The stone they found was gorgeous; far superior to any we had seen elsewhere. The seams are all perfectly fitted and matched. A week after the job is finished and my wife still stands there and admires our great new addition to our dining room. You really have to call these guys if you want to get granite counters.

We just recently had Steve fabricate and install new granite countertops - and install a tile backsplash - in our kitchen, and we are SO glad we did. Steve and his crew did an awesome job with fabrication and installation. We received excellent customer service with S&D, and we were able to be involved in the process from start to finish. Steve, Carlos, Juan, Luis, Rob, and Donnie, were knowledgeable, skilled, friendly and professional. We have worked with other granite and tile folks who were not honest and did sub-par work. Not so with Steve!. He is honest, upfront, and does beautiful work. We are so blessed with our new kitchen ... and we are having Steve do more work for us. We would highly recommend you call S & D for your custom stone and tile needs.

I set out to get my kitchen remodeled, acquiring several quotes from different contractors. Because I had also been set on getting granite counter tops, a friend of mine referred me to Steve at S & D Custom Stone & Tile. After talking to them they were able to set me up with other contractors to do my complete kitchen remodel along with the Stone Work they are known for. I did not need to go any further with getting quotes, they beat every quote I had previously gotten. They did such GREAT WORK that I also decided to remodel both of my bathrooms. Their work IS CUSTOM, they are very PROFESSIONAL and MEET ALL DEADLINES. I am amazed with my home and love to show it off. They changed my ordinary home into a custom home. I would refer them to anyone who is looking for a company that does QUALITY WORK.

I've been flipping homes in Sacramento and have used many granite guys to do install on my properties. This install that S&D did for me for the first time was different because it was my wife's kitchen that she has custom designed.

Because of the difficulty to install my island, many of my granite guys didn't want to take on such a big job because they were too afraid to brake the slab.

Long story how I got a hold of Steve (owner). When I first met him at my house he was very professional and knowledgeable and gave me a good vibe.

Again, this was my wife's kitchen and all I wanted was a perfect install on my granite to make her happy.

Long story short, I went with S&D. I was present when they were doing all the install and I was amazed by their professionalism and speed. Again, I've worked with several granite guys in the past and the way S&D cut, handled and installed my granite was just amazing!

When my wife returned from work that day she called me and said the granite looked amazing and she loved it.

It wasn't an easy install; in fact, S&D had to remove some cabinets out to install the bar top which they did and nothing was damaged.

Anyway, my island measures 78"x75". It required 4 S&D guys to install it but it seemed so easy because they were all just so good

I strongly encourage you to do your install with S&D. I do believe that will give you the best quote in town, but even if it's higher that any other quote, it's definitely worth paying the extra bucks.

I'm all about quality and they definitely exceeded my expectations

S&D is definitely a great place to have your custom countertop fabricated and installed. I shopped around and got bids by emailing a drawing with measurements of my kitchen. I went with S&D because of the other reviews on here and because the price was very good and because of how fast they same out and installed the countertops.

Heres the timeline:
1) I pick out and buy a granite slab from arizona tile in Roseville. They allow you to put a hold on slabs for free for one week before you need to pay for out and set it aside. I picked out a closeout slab and saved some money since I only needed one slab.
2) Steve measures my kitchen on a Friday.
3) The following Monday Arizona Tile says they can deliver the slab to Steve's shop by Thursday.
4) I visit on Friday after the slab is delivered and layout how each piece will be cut from the slab.
5) On Wednesday the slab is installed. That's fast!!

S&D's crew came out during the one hour window like they promised and everything went smoothly even when I didn't have the straightest cabinets. They used shims to keep everything level and it turned out great. I have small galley kitchen and they did it with no seams.

Here are some tips I learned when I went shopping for countertops:
- Always get as many bids as possible. Do more than 3 if you have time.
- Some shops act like they are too busy for your job or give you a high bid or long install date like a month away. They are out for the most money so if you don't need demo of your old countertops, plumbing, or electrical then you don't generate a lot of money so you are basically small potatoes to them. S&D was not like that and they were polite and cool people.
- Read reviews like on yelp and Angies List and check BBB and the contractors license board.
- Just because your friend had a good experience with an installer doesn't mean you will since every job is unique.
- Always use a professional in the craft if you want a professional job. Handy men that claim they can do it all won't be as good as someone who only does one thing.

I recently used Steve and his crew at S&D tile for my kitchen granite counters. We talked to several contractors, including the leading Sacramento "pre-fabricated" granite contractor, before deciding to go with S&D. While we were initially attracted to the pre-fabricated counters due to the lower labor cost, when we compared both estimates including material and demo we found the difference in cost was negligible. We went with custom counters with S&D for 3 reasons - better install quality and less seams, better customer service, and better granite selection.

Steve is the owner of S&D - when you call, he is very attentive and if he can't answer he will get right back to you. He makes sure to answer all your questions thoughly and promptly. My wife and I work in the construction management industry and expect a level of quality higher than the average customer. Steve will not only deliver the quality you expect, but will work with you on your budget.

I received 4 bids from the best rated Sacramento area tile contractors. S&D's was the most competitive, but still was a bit out of our budget. He worked with us to get our project within budget by extending his contractor discount on materials and suggesting some ways we could cut costs. Once we had the slabs purchased, we reviewed the layout at his shop to ensure we were 100% satisfied. When demo day came, the house the as clean as when we left it that morning. When the counters were installed, he matched the seams up perfectly and arranged the granite to maximize the amount we purchased and to achieve the best look possible. Also, all S&D employees at my house were very courteous, respectful, and left the house spotless.

Overall, I couldn't be happier with the workmanship and the cost. I will definitely recommend S&D to anyone looking for a tile/granite contractor, and will use them for my future projects. Thanks Steve for a great job!
