Estimates & Selections

Every project, big or small starts with an idea.

Our qualified staff can help you through each step of the process—design, material selection, cost estimating, fabrication and installation. We strive to make this a pleasant and smooth process. Below are our recommended steps:

1. Plans / Drawings

You may provide us with measurements, your own drawings, cabinet drawings or architectural plans for an estimate. Your plans should have dimensions. Appliances, sinks and walls should be noted.

2. Material Selection

We have a large selection of surfaces to choose from. Come into our showroom located at 468146 Hwy. 95 Sagle, Idaho to see them in person as well as a large number of unique displays. You can also visit a number suppliers we work with in Spokane and Seattle. When selecting your material, we recommend bringing samples of your paint, cabinets and tiles to help in the selection.

3. Estimates

Once you have decided on a material for your project, we can give you a straight forward estimate. The estimate is based on your provided measurements and adjustments to actual will be made.

4. Options (Edge details, Surface, Backsplash, Sinks)

Idaho Granite works has a number of edge details. Our skilled craftsman can also fabricate a custom edge of your choosing. Our showroom displays feature all our standard edge details as well as some of our custom creations.

Additional Considerations


The majority of slabs come with a polished surface. Some may come in a honed or leathered/satin finish. At Idaho Granite Works, we are not limited to these finishes. Idaho Granite Works can create a number of finishes on your slabs including honed (flat matte), polished (flat glossy), and various textures (light, medium, heavy) as well as the varying the amount of gloss on the textured material (no gloss, semi-gloss, full gloss). Samples can be viewed at our showroom.


Idaho Granite Works can fabricate backsplash from your chosen countertop material. Four to six inches tall is standard, but a full-height backsplash (from the counter up to the cabinets) is also very popular.

Sink Options

Please note what kind of sink(s) you want to use on your drawing:

  • Undermount
  • Overmount
  • Farm front
  • Vessel

Please indicate the sink material if possible, as heavier sinks require additional support. Typical materials include:

  • Stainless steel
  • Composite
  • Cast iron
  • Porcelain
