Growing up in a family that has been well known for flooring and custom home remodeling in Gastonia, NC, since 1945, Mike Gunn started his own profession in the field in 1983 with Carolina Granite and Stone. Around 1987, he opened his first retail store, selling and installing carpet, vinyl, counter tops, and tile. During the mid-1990s, Mike found himself learning more about not only the flooring and countertop business, but also remodeling, electrical, and plumbing work as well.
In 2004, Mike received countless phone calls from customers interested in granite countertops. After studying the increasingly popular material, learned the ins and outs of granite and opened his own fabrication facility only a year later. Today, Mike is the owner and operator of Carolina Granite and Stone.
Now that you are ready to give your home a modern look, you may not be sure where to start. Other homeowners will probably tell you that a change to your bathroom or kitchen can make a huge difference in your house’s appearance. The great thing about remodeling is that minor and major projects will improve your living space.
We have experience with everything from partial to floor-to-ceiling renovations. You probably have ideas about the changes you would like to make. However, if you do not, we can make recommendations and suggestions. Chances are you already know that new cabinets will make your kitchen or bathroom beautiful and expand its storage space. But we can help recommend a stylish and durable countertop that is the ideal complement for those cabinets.
Within our 12,000-square-foot fabrication facility, we custom cut granite to your specifications. The preparation of the granite is done through a process in which we cut, shape, and polish your chosen slab.
After you pick out your slab and the exact part you would like to use for your countertop (some granite slabs may contain multiple designs), we use our state-of-the-art machinery to fabricate it. We begin by cutting the granite with our bridge saw. Then we shape it with our radial-arm profiling machines and diamond-bit routers, and finally, we polish the slab with the finest diamond pads for the most luxurious shine you can get. Using our air-material handling equipment to move the granite around, we then load it up, bring it out to your home and install the granite countertops.
The same work we do for homes is available for your businesses. We understand that you want to maintain a professional look for your office, but that does not mean it has to be drab. Based on your requests, we provide custom commercial interior renovations. We use premium materials and distinctive designs to create an environment that is attractive and conducive for work. You and your employees will benefit from a commercial space that is comfortable and stylish.
