Our Award-Winning Granite Shop

We’re Rockford’s most experienced fabricator with five generations of stone-crafting experience. Our family business was built by people that valued quality craftsmanship, and we’ve worked hard to keep that glowing reputation.

Visit our historic showroom and granite & quartz warehouse to find out why we’ve been voted the area’s #1 granite shop! Trust your home to our talented team of granite experts at Benson Stone Co. We offer you:

• State-of-the-art technology
• The area’s largest selection of in-stock slabs
• Expert design assistance
• Superior quality fabrication & installation
• Low price guarantee

Today, we strive to stay on the cutting edge of technology to ensure that our production is as efficient as possible. We use a highly-accurate laser that makes an electronic template of our customers’ cabinets. This process is faster and more accurate than conventional measuring/templating, and it allows us to fabricate the countertops to extremely-precise dimensions. In our shop, we currently run three state-of-the-art, computer-controlled machines to cut and polish the granite. This allows us to produce kitchens much more quickly than any other granite shop in the Rockford area.

We also carry the largest selection of in-stock slabs in the Rockford area. We invite you to come see our massive slab warehouse for yourself.

When you buy granite from Benson Stone, you also get free expert design assistance from our amazing staff. They will help you find that perfect slab, and they can also help match colors and make other difficult design decisions.

At Benson Stone, you get the knowledge, personal service and craftsmanship of a family-owned business at pricing that competes with even the big-box stores.

Frequently Asked Questions

Installation times will vary depending on multiple factors, but most basic kitchen installs take 4 to 6 hours. Vanity installs can be completed in as little as 1 to 2 hours.

Please remove all items from the countertop area and ensure that there is a clear path from the driveway to the work zone.

Remove the top drawers from all of the cabinets and place them off to the side. Everything can remain in the drawers and cabinets but do be aware that, especially if a tear out is required, the installation process does create a certain amount of debris. Lastly, make sure that the sink cabinet is completely emptied.

In most cases, you can immediately resume normal use of your kitchen. Your installer will draw attention to any areas that may require extra caution.

There are many specialized granite and quartz cleaners available on the market. Anything acidic or caustic like bleach ammonia or vinegar should always be avoided. When in doubt, a small amount of mild dish detergent, like dawn, in water is always a good option.

We seal all countertops before they leave the shop and most sealers can last at least 5 years. If your tops are properly sealed water will bead up on the surface rather than soak into the stone.

Customer Reviews★★★★★

I went with Benson Stone for Quartzite countertops along with having several pieces of quartzite around our tub and shower unit. We had a difficult layouts and they spent the time needed to get all the dimensions for everything to fit correctly. Everything looks beautiful and their install crew did an amazing job. Would definitely recommend.Chad C.

Thank you Benson Stone for cutting the granite for my new kitchen sink. What a great company to deal with, from my initial phone call with Gordon, to setting up everything with Paul and the two gentlemen that came out to do the work they all did a fantastic job. I would recommend Benson Stone to everyone.Stacy N.

Andrea and Gordon are awesome. We walked in looking to browse and found out Granite was much cheaper than any big box store AND measured and installation included. We even added a sink cheaper than anyone else. Installation team was VERY respectful and courteous. They even sweep your floors if they leave dust. Impressed by them.Kari T.

These guys did a great job with a very quick turnaround time on our countertops. Install quality was top notch, nothing over budget. Very accurate estimates. Much larger selection than the big box stores and great communication throughout the process. Highly impressed and would recommend.Cody J.

From the beginning consultation to the follow-through, everything was done professionally and in a friendly manner. The installation workmen were professional, hard-working, and a pleasure to deal with. The end result is beautiful. Your company is certainly a great example of workmanship of which the entire Rockford community can be proud.Susan G.

What a pleasant experience from beginning to end. The guys from the shop were very professional and polite and the installers were very friendly and did an awesome job. We visited your competitors along with the big box stores. Benson Stone was hands down the best bang for our buck. Thank you for good customer service and a truly great buying experience!Brad H.
