How It Works

Consult with a kitchen specialist
To get started on your countertop installation or countertop replacement project, request a free consultation with a Home Depot kitchen specialist.
Make style decisions
During your consultation, one of our kitchen specialists will show you samples of countertop materials, colors and edge styles and help you choose the best option for your lifestyle and budget. You’ll also receive a quote for your project, including materials and installation. The quoted amount must be paid in order to move forward with the installation process.
Measure to fit
Within two days of payment, our local, authorized installer will schedule a time to come to your home to measure your space and create a template, or “footprint,” of your new countertop so that it will fit properly.
We deliver and install
Once your new custom countertops have been fabricated, the installer will remove your existing countertops if needed and install the new countertops, ensuring a proper fit. Installation will take an average of 1-3 days to complete, including any plumbing disconnect/reconnect that may be required.

How much does countertop installation cost?
The cost of replacing your old countertops depends on the material you want installed.

With several different materials from leading brands, we can help you find the right fit for your budget. For more information on the cost of having countertops installed, visit our countertop installation cost guide.

What is a free countertop consultation like?

Our Countertop Installation Products
What kinds of countertops are available?
We offer a variety of countertop surfaces, including granite, quartz, laminate and solid surface. A few of our leading brands include Cambria, Caesarstone, Silestone, Formica, LG Viatera, Corian and Dekton.
What is the difference between a quartz countertop and a granite countertop?
The biggest difference is that quartz countertops are made from manufactured stone while granite countertops are made from natural stone. Therefore, a granite countertop will have variations in color because no two stones are alike. On the other hand, since quartz countertops are made with ground quartz, resins, and other additives, they have a more consistent color. Another difference is that sealing is highly recommended for granite but not needed for quartz. Ultimately, both provide lasting value but different looks. Visit our Countertop Buying Guide for more details.
Will I be able to cut directly on my new countertop or place hot pots and pans on the surface?
To prolong the beauty and life of your new countertop, we recommend that you use cutting boards and/or trivets to protect the surface from cuts, heat sources, etc.
Will seams be visible on the countertops?
Our solid surface countertops offer an almost seamless appearance. Seams tend to be more visible in natural stone surfaces as well as laminate and quartz tops.
How long will my new countertops last?
How long your countertops will last depends on your lifestyle and the type of countertop material you choose. Our kitchen design specialists will help you choose the right countertop to fit your lifestyle. Additionally, many of our countertops are backed by a 15-year warranty.

This has to be the absolute worst experience in a home project I have ever had. Once Home Depot accepted my money, their communication to me stopped. The initial interaction was fine, pretty uneventful. However, I was told that this would be a 2-3 week turnaround time once Stoneworks came and measured a template. The vendor came out in early July and reiterated the same 2-3 week turnaround. It has been now two months and not once in that time did Home Depot or Stoneworks contact me to let me know there would be long delays. I am still not sure what took so long. I contacted the store, the kitchen department and corporate multiple times. I have still not received any answers. All they want to talk about was the delivery date and time. There is no accountability on the lack of communication or explain why I was told 2-3 weeks and it became 2 months. I am still waiting for my call! I will never recommend either company for any project to anyone that will listen to me. Very disappointing.

Over all I am completely happy with the experience and the end product. Everyone involved showed a great deal of professionalism. Every question or concern was addressed promptly and efficiently. Because of the efforts made by everyone involved the process was easy and seamless. The installers were friendly and courteous. They came in and covered my floors to protect them. They were careful to not damage anything. The countertops fit perfectly and no additional adjustments were needed. I would definitely use them again if the need arose.

Countertop Materials We Install


Granite Countertop Installation

Granite countertops in a kitchen with white cabinets.

With one-of-a-kind beauty and durability, granite is one of the most popular options for kitchen countertops. This natural stone is resilient, making it great for a high-traffic environment like the kitchen. Granite countertops are scratch-resistant and won't crack or burn when exposed to extreme heat, allowing you to move a hot pan straight from the stove to the counter—no trivet needed.

Granite countertops are also easy to clean. You can use specialized granite cleaning products, or standard household cleaners work just as well. Chemical cleaning products won't damage the surface of the stone.

1 / 7

Laminate Countertop Installation

White laminate countertops with a kitchen sink and a stove.

Laminate countertops are generally the most affordable because laminate is manufactured from plastic and other man-made polymers.

Laminate is fairly stain resistant, but keep in mind that it’s susceptible to scratching. It’s best not to cut directly on the countertop or use abrasive cleaning products, and we recommend using a trivet for hot pans to protect laminate countertops from intense heat.

If you’re looking for a unique counter color, laminate is a good start. Because the material is man-made, you'll find a broader spectrum of colors than you would with natural materials. Wilsonart and Formica, two of the top laminate brands, have fantastic options for customizing your kitchen countertops.

2 / 7
Natural Stone

Natural Stone Countertop Installation

White natural stone countertops with gray cabinets.

Natural stone such as marble or quartzite are popular choices for kitchen countertops, thanks to their beauty and durability.

Known for their scratch-resistance and heat-resistance, natural stone countertops can handle a hot pan right on the surface without the need for a trivet or pot holder.

Stone countertops vary in how much moisture they allow in, so some natural stones need to be sealed periodically, while others do not. We’re happy to advise you on this and answer your maintenance questions. Keep in mind that harsh cleaning products can damage porous materials.

3 / 7

Quartz Countertop Installation

White quartz countertops with a large sink.

A combination of natural stone and man-made materials, quartz is durable, low maintenance, and easy to care for.

The material is resistant to knife scratches and most stains, especially when cleaned quickly. Quartz is also heat-resistant but can still scorch under extreme heat. There’s no need for any specialized cleaning products for quartz, and abrasives won't cause any surface damage.

You can choose from a wide range of quartz countertop options from many of the top industry brands, including Silestone, Caesarstone, and more. Because quartz incorporates man-made elements, there are many color options for your countertops.

4 / 7

Soapstone Countertop Installation

Black soapstone kitchen island with two stools.

Soapstone countertops, another natural stone material, are a beautiful mid-priced option for kitchen counters.

Soapstone differs from other natural stone materials, as it doesn’t come in as wide a range of colors and is not as durable as the others. Although the surface scratches easily, most minor scratches are easy to smooth out with a bit of sandpaper. We recommend coating the area with mineral oil after treating scratches to restore luster and shine.

Soapstone slabs are highly resistant to heat and typically won't sustain damage from chemical cleaning products. Be sure to clean up any spills or food residue quickly, though, as soapstone is prone to staining. 

5 / 7
Solid Surface

Solid Surface Countertop Installation

A kitchen with blue cabinets and grey solid surface countertops.

Solid surface countertops are affordably priced compared to other countertop options.

Typically, this man-made material is constructed from an acrylic resin. Solid surface kitchen counters aren’t as durable as natural stone, so they can melt if you set a hot pan directly on the surface, and they’re also easier to scratch. Any scratches or chips on a solid surface countertop should be repaired right away to help avoid bacterial growth.

We offer a range of solid surface countertop colors and styles to choose from. We also work with some of the top industry brands, including Corian and Dupont, and can guide you in choosing your best option.

6 / 7
Ultra Compact

Ultra Compact Countertop Installation

A kitchen with dark wood cabinets and white ultra compact countertops.

Ultra compact surface countertops are among the newest and most innovative countertop materials on the market, made of a blend of quartz, porcelain, glass, and other materials. They’re also the most compact, or thinnest, option available.

Ultra compact countertops are durable like natural stone under heavy use. This type of material is scratch-resistant, heat-resistant and stain-resistant. It’s even safe under especially cold temperatures and when exposed to UV rays for a prolonged period.

Ultra compact countertops fall in the middle of the typical countertop price range, but you'll need to have them professionally installed. Any chips, scratches or cracks will also need to be repaired professionally.
