June 2014

We used Thomas Leitner Stone for a major remodel with extensive work (both natural and man-made) and for some repair work on a different house.  They provided good advice and deals on selecting the stone, creative suggestions on how to improve aspects of the project, did a professional job on the installation and promptly followed up on any touch up work.  His team is professional and easy to work with.  We are quite picky about things and his team was always focused upon the details and making sure the job was done to the highest standards.  We have received many compliments on the stone within our house.  Greg H.

We were actively shopping for several months for coutertops when we located Thomas Leitner Stone on a sign when we were driving by their shop.  From the time we stopped in to introduce ourselves and research their product and service, the process has been great.  We experienced immediate answers to our questions, fast follow up with measurements, quotes, invoices and installation.  We are pleased.  From the invoice processed by the receptionist to the production and installation staff then Tom’s personal involvement we are happy.  The attention to details such as the support, edges and seams are wonderful!  We highly recommend Thomas Leitner for granite.   Chris & Roberta G.

I have worked with Thomas Leitner Stone for eight years, and over those years I appreciated their experience and understanding of the demanding environment of custom and speculative homes. Thomas’ insight into the current trends has been really helpful in creating one-of-a-kind kitchens, master bathrooms and powder rooms. Success can be measured in sales of homes and Thomas Leitner Stone contributed to my success, before the sale and after the sale with great customer service.  DeMarino Construction

I would highly recommend Thomas Leitner for any and all granite and stone work.  Tom made several trips to my home to assure we had the correct rough measurements and again once cabinetry was installed.  Finished slabs with sinks were installed promptly and professionally.  The installation team was careful, clean and great to work with.  Especially grateful that they overcame hurdles related to uneven cabinetry and took the extra steps to assure the counter ledges were supported correctly.  Kitchen and two bathrooms turned perfect. Thanks   Scott S.

Working with you was an absolute delight, every step of the way I felt you went above and beyond my expectations.  You worked within our budget and the final result is actually way better than what I was expecting.  Your installation crew did an absolutely amazing job and they went the extra mile to make sure every detail was covered with excellence.  I have already referred a couple of friends to you and I will continue to do so.  Overall my experience was a 10 out of 10 and I couldn’t be more pleased.    Nathan F.

I wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did installing our stone counter tops.  I know the sink made fitting somewhat difficult but you and your crew cut and installed it to perfection.  I also wanted to thank you for adding in the backslash that we omitted during sizing.  I know you spent two extra trips to ensure the proper stone was procured and then sized.  Your professionalism and dedication in helping fix our mistake was amazing.  And the fact that you didn’t try to up-charge was unheard of in today’s business world where everyone is out to make a quick buck.  You provided several examples in which to choose. You returned on the date and time you stated.  The job was completed on budget, on time and much to our satisfaction.    Daniel S.

Thomas Leitner Stone offered a great selection of remnants for us to choose from.  We immediately selected a piece of stone for our master bathroom vanity but could not find something that would work for the color scheme in our guest bath.  Tom was very flexible in working with us to procure the material from an outside vendor.  The quality of the fabrication and installation was excellent.  Tom was also very good about making sure we were involved in the template process so that we were able to use the portion of the stone that worked best for our color scheme, sink placement, etc.  Finally, Tom’s fabrication was much faster then we anticipated.    Nick & Jessica D.

I recently remodeled my kitchen and bathrooms.  I used Thomas Leitner Stone for all my counters.  The fireplace had been demoed out and Tom stepped in with design ideas and ended up putting in a gorgeous granite on the hearth and framed the fireplace.  It is the centerpiece of my front room.  This same granite worked beautifully as a counter in one of the bathrooms.  Tom will personally walk you through his show room and patiently show you every slab of stone he has.  I couldn’t be happier with my choices.  I was given several kitchen counter samples to choose from and Tom gave me good advice about each piece.  I chose one and he insist I come to the shop to see the entire slab to make sure I liked it, because as he pointed out, a sample can look very different in a large area.  I couldn’t be more happier with my kitchen, bath counters and the fireplace – product and installation.  I highly recommend working with Thomas Leitner Stone.    Candy S.

We would highly recommend Thomas Leitner Stone.  They were very knowledgeable and reasonable priced.  Your workers were so efficient, neat, professional and friendly with installation of our granite sink top.  Was a pleasure doing business with your company and staff.    Mark and Cindy W.

September 2013

We are very pleased with the quick response and thorough work.  There was very little dust/mess and they cleaned up well after the fact.  The results are excellent.  I was impressed that the folks stayed yesterday until the scaling was dry so that they could replace the furniture.    David K.

My husband and I had a new kitchen countertops installed and we are very pleased with our choice to use Thomas Leitner Stone.  Tom was always available to answer our questions and worked with us to come up with the most cost effective product for our needs.  Tom’s team was on time, professional, and did a great job on the installation.  If you are looking for excellent customer service, pricing and craftsmanship then call Tom.  I know we will for our next project.    Joe and Sharon K.

My wife and I began planning out a project to upgrade one of our bathrooms and our laundry area.  I asked a friend who had just finished a similar project who they used for their granite fabrication and installation.  They told me they used Thomas Leitner Stone and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.  Not wanting to go purely on my friend’s recommendation, I not only met with Thomas Leitner, but I went to another competing business to compare prices and meet the team.  In the end, Thomas won me over with his personal service and willingness to work with my wife to find two nice pieces of granite for our project.  His price was competitive and he gave me confidence that he knew what he was doing.  He even agreed to stop by our house on the weekend at a time that was convenient for us to do final measurements.  When it came time to install, his crew did a great job.  He promised me he would be able to do the demo, install and all the plumbing hook ups all in one day.  They showed up exactly on time, did quality work, and were careful and respectful of my home.  They got it all done as promised for exactly the price quoted (no late adders or extra charges that some contractors try to hit you up for).  The plumber they used even triple checked all connections for leaks before leaving.  All in all, I was very satisfied with Thomas Leitner Stone and would use them again without hesitation.     Norm K.

 

I am very happy with my choice to use Thomas Leitner Stone and Tile for my kitchen remodeling.  What impressed me the most was the level of customer service that Tom gives to his clients.  He was very helpful throughout the whole project.  He was always available to answer questions.  The staff was also very pleasant to have in our home.  I will definitely call them again for our next project.    Katie B.

 

Although my kitchen granite was fabricated/installed by someone else, Tom personally came to my home to assess why my stainless steel sink was separating from the grout and continually needed to be re-grouted. From his years of experience, he quickly noted that the sink was installed without the appropriate supports causing it to pull away from the grout. Within a week he sent two gentlemen to fix the problem. I was totally impressed: they were on-time, efficient, very courteous and cleaned up when they were finished.  It is such a breath of fresh air to deal with knowledgeable people who know how to run and operate a business with service and quality as their goal.  I am so glad that I found this company and will be using them for my next remodeling project.    Mary P.

 

I’ve worked with 2 other granite fabricators in the past and in comparison I found Thomas Leitner Stone and Tile much easier to work with and the willingness to accommodate our unique needs and schedule set this company apart. I felt that the attention to detail and quality of workmanship was superior. I also found Tom’s suggestions very helpful and I appreciated his direct and honest response to questions.    Corey & Kathy P.

I recently had two granite composite sinks fitted by Thomas Leitner Stone, and am very pleased with the results. They were punctual, fast and efficient and stayed on task constantly with no down time. They were professional and the job reflected that.    Anna B.

 

We embarked on a minor remodel for our guest bathroom. Given that our house is an adobe home, we had certain stylistic ideas about how to maintain the adobe and wood characteristic of the bathroom but update the countertops, sinks, fixtures, and lighting. We stopped by Thomas Leitner Stone and Tile one day at lunch to look at various options. Tom came out and helped us immediately. He took the time to listen to our “vision” for the remodel and our desire to choose a material that “fit” with the style of our home. Tom walked us around and showed us various materials, including taking us into the cutting area to show us edge finish options and how the various materials were crafted into countertops. With our home, he showed us natural stone materials and took the time to sort through a variety of slabs until we found the right one.  He was extremely helpful that day and we found an excellent natural stone slab for out new bathroom counter.

His office was always very prompt and courteous in calling us about scheduling installation.  Tom also was gracious in answering our questions – he even came by our house after demolition and prior to counter install so we could talk through some of the challenges of the counter given the unevenness of the adobe walls and the unique design of the talavera sinks we selected.

Installation, including cutting the slab to fit the space, and cutting unique holes for our sinks and plumbing fixtures were all done very professionally and timely. The material and labor cost were all very reasonable.

We are very pleased with the service and products from Thomas Leitner Stone and Tile and will definitely use them again! Similarly, I would highly recommend them to others!    Eric & Chris Z.

 

We were very pleased with the quality of work and materials provided by Tom Leitner. He listened to what we wanted to do and offered suggestions as to how to best accomplish our plan. The work was done in a timely manner and the installation crew was efficient and very clean. We will definitely use Tom again when we do additional re-modeling.     Katie C.

We recently purchased a new home in San Diego that needed new countertops. We were referred to Thomas Leitner Stone from a friend. When we contacted Tom, he invited us to visit his showroom and stone yard in Escondido. We were more than impressed with the displays, samples and selections that were presented to us.

The next day, Tom came to our home, took measurements and presented us with a quote and time frame for the new countertops.

Tom kept us informed and updated on the status of our countertops via pictures and text messages. The day of the installation, Tom’s crew showed up promptly. The three installer’s were very friendly, professional and respectful. The workmanship and installation was impeccable. The granite countertops look even better than we had imagined that they would. In fact, everyone that comes to our home has been amazed at the quality and appearance.

Both my wife and I are so happy with the experience and countertops that we recommend anyone looking for excellent craftsmanship and customer service to contact Thomas Leitner Stone.    Ken and Michelle K.

 

My wife and I have used Thomas Leitner Stone now on 3 different occasions, installing granite in our kitchens, bathrooms, and have been very impressed with Tom’s personal attention to detail, excellent quality of manufacture, as well as their very reasonable cost. We would highly recommend this company for your future granite installations.    Richard K.
