App.only because of COVID, but we still get in with the help of the front desk lady. Like it how they price out the... stones by levels and allow you to walk through the isles by yourself. Much more selections than the precut ones.read more

Well, it is like this. The countertops are beautiful. On that alone I'd give a 5 review. Thought was price was... reasonable. Very underwhelmed with the staff and installers. And this was before the installation. First, the center hole for the kitchen faucet was off-center. I will say they did send someone later that day. It was the installer. Made me wonder why he didn't notice it. After he left, I saw a lot of glue on the walls, paint on 4 cabinets was chipped, wall paint was chipped, gouges in the walls, a 2" crack in a wall and the stove was not put back correctly. When I let the salesperson know, she said in their business it happens and they aren't liable. Two friends had countertops put in by two other companies and they both said no glue, gouges, cracks. extremely happy. As I told the salesperson, when I make a major purchased I don't expect to pay more to fix what they've done.read more

This summer we had hired Universal Stone and what a tremendous decision that turned out to be!! We were VERY pleased... with the craftsmanship, customer service and quality this company encompassed!! We received excellent guidance in picking out granite for our kitchen countertops and island. They were attentive with our needs, coupling our budget into the vision we had for our home. We had a problem with mismatching colors and noticed a small chip upon installation. Not only did they come back to our home upon our request but they REPLACED the entire slabs FREE OF CHARGE! The workers who were sent to our home were VERY respectful. They prioritized safety as they wore masks and made sure to abide by protocols set forth by Governor Walz. We look to support small businesses as they are the heart of our community and the backbone of our nation. If at any point in the future we find a desire to do more remodeling, Universal Stone will get that job time after time!read more

Universal Stone installed the countertop and shower walls in our master bathroom. Anna and her entire team were... amazing. She made the process easy and stress free. She communicated well with us throughout the entire process and answered all of our questions. The install was scheduled quickly and the crew was professional. We will definitely use Universal Stone again in the future and will recommend them to others.read more

Universal Stone did a fabulous job installing granite counters in our new house! This is the second house we've used... them for. We found granite at a different supplier, but Universal gave us a fair price to go ahead with the project. Also, we have a curved bar....no problem fabricating that...measurement is done with a laser-type device, which transfers the layout to their computers. All in all very reliable and honest ...I'm very happy!read more

I hate to do this. The product itself is beautiful. I get that our job was small (60" bathroom vanity top), but we... spent $1500 and are planning a full kitchen project this spring that we were hoping to use them for.When we arrived for our appointment, the salesperson met us, asked us what our project was, and then sent us out into the shop to look at the slabs. He didn't explain anything to us (there are different types of stone and different price points). He simply told us to look around and then disappeared. We noticed the other 2 couples had sales people walking around with them, asking them questions, and giving them suggestions.He checked on us after we were nearly all the way through but didn't hang around. When we were done, we waited in the showroom for a while before he came out of his office.He didn't explain sinks, edges, etc. but fortunately we are adept enough to figure those things out on our own in the time we waited for him. We gave him the 3 options we wanted estimates for, I explained our timeline (the contractor wasn't able to start for at least a month or more) and he sent us on our way without a "thanks for coming in".The estimate came through and we made our decision. I emailed our sales person and he said to sign the contract, send it back to him, and pay the deposit. When he called for my credit card information, he had me on speaker phone. Who asks for credit card information over speaker phone? Plus it was hard to hear him. I reminded him of our timeline again and that was fine with him.That same morning, I receive another call from him, asking for the wrong name. I corrected him and he said he was calling to schedule our template, as if he'd not just spoken to me earlier. I reminded him of our previous conversation and I didn't have a day yet, as our contractor hadn't begun the job. We decided that I would just call him when we knew more.A couple weeks later, I got another call from him, asking if we were ready. I reiterated that it was going to be another couple weeks and that I would connect with him when it was time.When it was finally time for the template to be made, I contacted our sales person and left a voice mail. When he called me back, he asked for the wrong name, again. He also told me I need to pay the deposit, which I'd already paid for when we signed the contract.At this point, I was leery about going further with this job with this sales person. I was worried that if he couldn't get my name right twice, remember our timeline, or the fact that I'd already paid the deposit, that maybe the job wouldn't go very smoothly. I'm not generally a complainer, but I mustered up the courage to call and let them know that we weren't confident in our sales person and we really wanted to nip it in the bud before the install. We wanted to be happy with choosing Universal Stone.We were given a new sales person, apparently just temporarily enough for us to pay the final balance due, I guess. After that, communication came from our original sales person again, which was super awkward.The installers did a great job, except one of them arrived without a mask (Covid). When he saw I was putting one on (to protect them), he muttered something about forgetting his in the truck and went back and got it. They were friendly and efficient.I received no further communication from them - no "Thanks for your business" or "How to care for your new granite".I will reiterate that the countertop is beautiful, the install was flawless and the turnaround time from template to install was quick. I would have liked to have a sales person that all these other reviewers had. Our experience would have been much different.read more

Unfortunately, we had a terrible experience with our salesperson. We had called multiple times and left messages... multiple times after our measurement appointment to set up an install time (we were initially told that we would be contacted by our salesperson within a few days, so they could set it up). After over a week of calling and leaving messages with no luck, we found out that our salesperson was on vacation and were told that we would have to wait until they were back to set up an appointment and move forward. Thankfully, Corey helped us out and set up a prompt install appointment and and answered them questions we had. Since then, I’ve called again to ask about a missing sink grid and aftercare instructions because they were not communicated with us. We were again funneled to our original salesperson who has again not returned our call. I was hesitant to leave a review but do not want people to have experience that we had.The measurements and installation were fantastic. Everyone involved in that process was great! The granite is quality, however a few areas look a little stained from the natural coloring of the stone. I’m not sure that this could have been avoided. If you are considering this company I recommend using Corey as your salesperson. He was the only reason we were able to move forward with our installation in a timely (but still delayed) matter and was very helpful. We are very appreciative of his willingness to take on additional responsibility and help us out.read more

We chose Universal Stone on the advice of friends and we feel it's the best decision we could have made for our kitchen... granite.Jenna, our salesperson, was so easy to work with and helped us every step of the way with our vision. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and a true professional. There is also an in-house designer who was very helpful and informative. I highly recommend both of these talented people.The installers were professional, friendly, and did an amazing job installing our granite. They went above and beyond to complete our install.The completed project from start to finish exceeded our expectations. I strongly recommend Universal Stone, we plan to use their services again with our bathroom remodels.read more

We were very happy with Universal Stone! We found a beautiful quartzite remnant for our bathroom and Universal Stone... was able to complete the measurement and installation within about 10 days at a surprisingly reasonable price for such a pretty stone. I highly recommend Universal Stone. They have friendly and competent consultants, quality materials, and excellent installation work.read more

I am so glad I found Universal Stone. From my initial visit to the installation, everything went smooth. Ryan, my... salesperson, was very helpful and came through with getting me scheduled in order to meet my deadlines. The resulting countertop is beautiful. Thank you.read more
