Welcome to Sauder Design
In the past twenty six years of our being involved with the kitchen business there have been many changes. The biggest change has been the growth in the granite counter top industry. Eight years ago we developed a new system for doing granite with large stones in tile. To date we have done over 800 of these granite countertops, and are now importing directly from the the stone quarries.
Mini Slab Granite:
Recently we invented the new mini-slab granite which we are now importing and using. We have dealers and stocking dealers in several areas which makes it possible to get a reasonable price on a granite countertop for the first time.
Our goal is to provide quality granite countertops at affordable prices to the homeowner.
What is it?
Our granite is pre-made in set sizes before it is shipped from the stone quarries. It has an edge of 1.25 inches and is .5 inches thick. It is 25.25 inches deep and we have as standard a 4 inch back splash. Parts like bar tops and raised bar tops, and full back splash pieces are also pre-made. Because of the cheaper cost of fabrication overseas at the quarry you are able to get the same real granite at half or a third of the cost of granite from other fabricators. We place the granite over a sub straight of MDF or other material and grout it with Laticrete epoxy grout which was designed for countertops. Because it is mixed with real stone it hardens as hard as the granite. Our stones are sealed by the installer and maintenance is minimal after that.

Why use Granite?
Granite is the best work surface for countertops. I did a granite top for a food inspector for the Ontario government and he said, "I want granite in my house because germs donít live on stone." Knives will not scratch it; hot pans will not burn it. Clean up is with soap and water.
