(Annapolis, MD)I have friends who made beautiful countertops out of 12 x 12 blue pearl granite tiles (they look black
with sparkly grey mica-type chips inside them). I know granite slab is preferred, but the tiles look great and I just found a source for the them at only $7.95/per, total with shipping for our kitchen is about $450. Question:, how hard is it to cut granite tile? Should I give up trying to do it myself and get estimates to have it installed, and what are my chances of having a tile man agree to install tile I already purchased?
