And if you're not careful, you will hire a headache! He'll waste your time, steal your money, leave you with a CRAPPY job and a HUGE migraine! If you're not sure where to find stone pros to compare, start here. Compare prices AND compare track records!

Here's how to get scammed:

Here's how to get scammed.

  1. Open the phone book to granite, close your eyes, and point. If he's cheap enough, hire him.

  2. Don't waste your time meeting him if he sounds real nice on the phone.

  3. Assume he has all the tools needed to fabricate your stone countertop.
    Who cares if they're all in the back of his truck!

  4. If he doesn't return your calls within a reasonable amount of time, assume he's really busy.

  5. Don't waste your time checking to see if he's licensed. Who would lie about that!

  6. Don't embarrass yourself by asking for proof of insurance. You really don't think he'd sue you if he got hurt at your home.

  7. If he's too busy to get references together, feel lucky he has the time for your project.

  8. Don't bother checking references. Just assume since he gave them to you, they must be good.

  9. Ask for a referral from a customer who had a complaint. If he has never had a customer complaint, make yourself believe you have found the one and only perfect fabricator.

  10. Don't waste ink and time on a contract. Just remember everything he has agreed to so you can hold him to it.

  11. Hang onto that little scrap of paper with the amount you owe him so he can't overcharge you later.

  12. Pay him for the entire job up front.
