It’s a common problem for homeowners and construction professionals doing a bathroom or kitchen remodel: What happens when you need only half (or a quarter of) a slab? Buying a full stone or solid surface slab can cost thousands of dollars and produce wasted remnants.

“That’s a problem that I faced numerous times a week for eight years,” says native Austinite Zach House, who ran the House + Earth kitchen and bath showroom until October 2017.

House believes he has the answer to that problem: an online marketplace where fabricators can list slab remnants from previous projects for easy search and purchase by homeowners and construction professionals. He recently launched that website: countertopsmart.com.

As of late May, the website had more than 900 remnants, starting at $52.56 for a white-gray, 43-inch by 25-inch Caesarstone Quartz remnant.

“People can save 60 to 80 percent over the cost of purchasing a full slab,” House says. “It’s just a better way to purchase countertops for bathrooms and small projects.”
