4 Reviews for Francini Inc. Marble and Granite
We have had a lot of problems with Francini's in Meridian. We wanted marble countertops in our kitchen, but we were concerned about staining and scratching. The Francini's salesperson assured us that quartzite was stronger than granite and unlike marble, quartzite was more resistant to water and scratching. It was also a lot more expensive than marble. We purchased two beautiful slabs of Tahiti quartzite that look just like marble for our fabricator to cut, treat, and install as countertops. After installation, we noticed the staining almost immediately. The countertops were soaking up water like a sponge. Splatter from the kitchen sink, or steam from opening the dishwasher door after a cycle would lead to big gray stains on the countertops. It looked terrible, but thankfully it was just water. We contacted Francini's and they told us that it was natural stone and it could be porous. They suggested treating it again. The fabricator treated it a second time. The fabricator told us that they had never seen quartzite that was as porous as ours. It behaved like marble. Francini refused to help us because they offer no warranty on natural stone. They recommended a third company to come in to poultice most of the existing stains and to apply their proprietary finish to the countertops, but Francini's refused to pick up any of the costs associated with this. The third company also did some scratch repair on the countertop because our countertops scratch very easily, like marble. They encouraged us to contact Francini's because our countertops weren't behaving like normal quartzite. I asked Francini's for documentation about our slabs because they behave like marble. They said they don't have that documentation because materials vary by lot and by where they come from on the hill. I asked Francini's to split the costs of the additional treatments I had to have done on the countertops right after installation. They refused because they offer no warranty on natural stone. Francini's does not stand behind their natural stone products.
