From Our Loyal Customers


October 2016

Tom and his team did a wonderful job designing and installing all our kitchen and vanity countertops. Tom helped us with stone selection and pricing as well as our kitchen island waterfall design. I was doubtful about how the waterfall pieces would turn out, but they look so nice and add to the contemporary look of the kitchen. Tom’s crew worked very meticulously and efficiently, paying attention to details and making sure that I was happy with results. They definitely delivered on their promise!! I would surely recommend this team to anyone looking for stone fabrication and installation services.  Sima G.

Tom and his crew put in the Silestone countertops in our kitchen. The supplier was not cooperating with getting the slabs I wanted so Tom helped out. He pushed forward the installation date to accommodate my timeline and the installation and clean up were quick, efficient and meticulous. His crew was very professional, helpful and polite. The whole project was reasonably prices. The finished job looks fantastic and I would definitely recommend him.  Fiona S.

Thomas Leitner Stone did a terrific job on my marble countertop and completed it in a timely manner. I would do business with this company again.  Carole W.

We received excellent service from owner Tom Leitner and his crew. Tom was helpful with the selection of our bathroom marble (used throughout the bathroom counter and walls), finding the best price and availability of the product. His crew was always professional, prompt, efficient, clean and polite. All details were covered to our extreme satisfaction. Tom worked easily with the other contractors which helped with work schedules and meeting our due date. Love our new bathroom and have received numerous compliments on the finished look, “Looks and feels like a spa”, this is the type of bathroom they put into yachts”, Can I just sleep in your bathroom”, just to name a few. We plan to use Tom and his crew when we remodel our kitchen in the future. Highly recommend this company!

Tom and his crew put in full granite countertops with a full backsplash in our kitchen. Demo was quick and relatively quiet. Installation and clean up were meticulous. Tom was very helpful with guiding us around the granite provider and help us pick the best slabs for our needs. The whole project was done in three days and was reasonably priced for the amount of work done.  Robert M.

We were referred to Tom by a friend of ours who has used him in the past. From the first meeting to the completed job, we are very pleased.  We walked into the showroom not really knowing what type of stone we wanted. Tom took the time to explain our choices and showed us many samples. After talking with us for about 20 minutes and not finding something we were crazy about, Tom said, I think I know what you would like. He went into the back and came out with a 4×6 piece of granite that was perfect for us!! Off we went to see an entire slab before we made the decision, and he was spot on!! His men who came to measure, tore out our old tile, and did the install are top notch, respectful of property, and entirely professional. Tom came by to help out. I respect a leader who doesn’t expect his employees to do something he won’t do!! All in all, a wonderful experience and we highly recommend Tom and his crew.  Carol S.

I was referred to Thomas Leitner Stone by a co-worker. I worked with Tom himself. His pricing was very competitive, and the quality of the work is of the highest quality. Details are very important, and Tom’s crew did not disappoint. Tom was patient while we went through the process of selecting tile, grout, a custom handmade sink and finishes to coordinate and complement the beautiful quartz countertops that he sourced, custom fit and installed. Tom ensured a flexible timeline for his installers that worked with my busy work schedule and my sense of urgency to complete the job. Importantly, Tom’s crew protected the existing walls, floors and cabinets while installing the new countertops, sink, hardware and backsplash. Lastly, I was able to text Tom and have him reply immediately which is very convenient and somewhat unusual for a contractor in my experience.  Barry T.

Excellent experience with Tom and his crew.  They installed our bathroom vanity countertop and everyone was extremely polite, professional, thorough at a very reasonable price. After Tom’s crew had completed their work, they went out of their way to clean up all dust in the bathroom and down our hallway. They asked questions for all decisions, and offered advise when we needed it. I love the work and will be calling on them for next next project.  Kay W.

Thanks so much Tom for the work you did on our sewing table.  My wife has been itching to see it completed for a year now and talks everyday about how much she loves the final result. You do fantastic work. We are fortunate to have met both you and Hope!  Aballi’s


June 2016

After having had bad experiences with several contractors over the years, I am always fearful in hiring someone to do work around my house.  For that reason I did careful research before having my three vanities replaced. I had read good reviews of Thomas Leitner Stone and decided to give them a try.  I chose a very high end quartz which required extra special care to prepare and install.  Thomas was helpful throughout the whole process and made some suggestions that helped reduced the cost.  I feel like I got a great deal on some high quality workmanship. Thomas’ workers installed three vanities in less than half a day and they are absolutely stunning.  The quality of the materials and the workmanship that was put into it was top notch.  The installers arrived on time, were polite, cleaned up after themselves and were a pleasure to deal with.  Highly recommended!  Debbie L.

May 2016

Several years ago Tom installed our kitchen granite countertops.  He had done such a beautiful job that we didn’t hesitate to have him back to install a new granite vanity top in our powder room, a quartz countertop in the laundry room and a travertine cap on a front entry pony wall.  Once again, we couldn’t be more pleased!!  Tom did an outstanding job and the finished project is beautiful!  Tom is a true professional, honest, meticulous, time sensitive and reasonably priced.  I highly recommend him and will definitely use him for any future projects!!  Kathleen D.

March 2016

Thomas Leitner Stone is an incredible company. My husband and I went and picked our granite from their yard, which has so many options to choose from, and less than a week later it was installed. The prices are incredible as I researched for a long time before choosing Thomas. I would absolutely recommend them for home improvement needs. Amazing quality, very professional and the best prices in the area!! The only downfall is that I wish he had a store in Idaho as we will be moving there and would love to hire him again for our new house. Best granite/store company to work with, you will not be disappointed!  Michelle C.

March 2016

Tom fabricated and installed a double vanity top and shower corner sear (with a radius) for our master bathroom remodel. It was a good experience all around. Tom squeezed us into his schedule and got the job done quickly. He even gave us a design idea for the edging that we adopted and it came out looking great. Very reasonable pricing too. I would definitely recommend Tom.  Scott G.

January 2016

Top notch measuring, joints and edges!! A gorgeous result!! Our quartz counters for kitchen and two baths were meticulously measured for, joined and installed. We have a slide-in stove and the precision of the cuts where the counter ran under the top was absolutely perfect as were the joins along the counter edges as we had specified extra-thick edges. Certainly advocates of measure twice and cut once. Tom and his crew ensured that the placement of sinks, faucets, etc. was exactly what we wanted and as part of the process, made very helpful suggestions – clearly expert installers. Would I hire them again/recommend them to friends, family, neighbors? Absolutely, without question.  Sue F.

December 2015

Thomas Leitner Stone prepared and installed granite counter tops in our kitchen and bathroom. The job was done professionally and quickly to our specifications with excellent results. It was a quality job without question. Mr. Leitner personally oversaw the job and made suggestions for improvements. He then proceeded to take it upon himself, with our permission, to make those improvements. It was a Grade A experience in how a quality business performs.  Thank you Thomas Leitner.  Highly Recommended!  Marlin G.


November 2015

Tom was highly recommended to us from another contractor we used.  Through the entire process, Tom did not disappoint.  He traveled to multiple yards looking for slabs that we might be interested in, sending us pictures.  Once we decided on what we wanted, every part of the project was smooth. His scheduling, customer service and installation were top notch.  Tom and his employees were very professional and a pleasure to work with.  The finished product was beyond what we expected. Our countertops are the most complemented piece of our renovation.  I highly recommend Tom.    Sjana W.


October 2015

Excellent experience!  I recently had Tom help me install new granite kitchen countertops and I couldn’t be happier.  I asked him for his help in making many of the decisions and he had great ideas, great taste and helped me keep my cost down. He was easy to get in touch with and did what he said he would.  I would definitely recommend him.  Ellen W.

September 2015

I was very pleased with the excellent workmanship of Tom Leitner and his team at Thomas Leitner Stone.  I selected 3 granite slabs with lots of colors, irregular patterns and flecks of crystal and mica that had to have been a nightmare piecing together for my peninsula kitchen.  They did a wonderful job matching seams and making tiny flaws disappear.  When I realized that the depth of my cooktop would interfere with the functioning of my new 36″ cherry drawer below, they saved the day by raising the counters an inch and adding a double wide bullnose.  Tom is an artist and exhibits quality work.   Kristine P.

September 2015

Thomas Leitner Stone completed a job for me that required a bit of expertise and ability.  I wanted to change out the thresholds of 3 doorways from the original wood to slab travertine. One doorway threshold was standard. The other two door system thresholds were very large. Entry doors on either sides of a fixed pane glass/wood center. Needless to say, these two door systems required a greater amount of skill. Tom’s measurements for all threshold wood to stone replacement were accurate, his delivery time of material was on time, and the completion of the entire job was done with accuracy and professionalism. I will recommend Thomas Leitner Stone without reservation and will be happy to do so.   Lucy K.

June 2015

Thank you for the beautiful granite that you installed in my newly remodeled kitchen. You were professional in all aspects of performance and on time.  Your craftsmanship and attention to detail shows in the beautiful finished counter.  Your clean up and protection of surrounding cabinets and appliances was amazing.  You have provided me with a beautiful granite kitchen at an affordable price.  Dan M.

June 2015

I have the highest praise for Thomas Leitner Stone. They have done four counters for us in four different houses over the last five years.  All of them have been of excellent quality.  Thomas Leitner does not leave a job until it is perfect.  Barbara V.

April 2015

Thank you for your help and for the nice job you did for us at Caddy Row.  It was fun working with you.  Tim & Nancy L.

April 2015

Thomas Leitner Stone provided us with great service.  Thomas Leitner Stone was precise.  We had our bathrooms, laundry room, bar and china cabinet all done by Thomas Leitner Stone.  He was incredibly helpful at his stone yard that has a beautiful selection of products.  He even sent us to look at a different granite yard when we asked about a specific granite that he didn’t have.  Tom suggested how we should finish the edges of our counters based on the contemporary style we wanted. Everything was completed in a timely and highly professional manner.  We were extremely pleased and would recommend Thomas Leitner Stone for any fabrication job you might have.

October 2014

Tom and Company, I want to thank all of you for your part at my home and behind the scenes in doing the granite countertops for 3 bathrooms.  Last year your company did work for me in my kitchen and powder room, and that work was of such high caliber that I came back this year for the further work.  This time I was able to be more present throughout the process, and so have a better appreciation for how much goes into your stonework before it ever gets to my house – from the office to the yard to the shop – and then how professionally it was installed, how great was the installer’s attention to details with perfect cleanup afterwards and on site inspecting by the owner himself.  I am very pleased with the results and highly recommend your business to others.  Kate C.

August 2014

Karen and I want to say “Thank you!” for the great job that you did with our kitchen coutertops.  You were absolutely super to work with and you really made this part of our kitchen project a breeze!  We certainly appreciate the great quality of your work, but more importantly we really appreciate your great service.  You must have stopped by two or three times to show us sample pieces and check the space requirements.  Additionally, you constantly kept us up to date in terms of the timing of the product and install.  Thank you again for your superb handiwork and professionalism!  Bill & Karen S.

July 2014

I am very satisfied with my experience with Thomas Leitner Stone.  Tom is very informative about a variety of countertop surfaces and help me in choosing the black granite for my kitchen.  I found the work to be excellent and finished in a timely manner.  Eiko F.

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.

May 2014

Thank you for a job well done.  We are very pleased with the workmanship.  The granite installers were both skilled and pleasant to have in our home.  You can be sure that you will be called for our next project.  Gene K.

April 2014

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.

April 2014

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

March 2014

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.

March 2014

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.

February 2014

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.

February 2014

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.

January 2014

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.

October 2013

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.

August 2013

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.

March 2013

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.


February 2013

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.


January 2013

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Thomas Leitner Stone. Having known and worked with you and your crew for over fifteen years, we have found you to be professional, knowledgeable and skilled at your craft.  From starting with a great selection of quality materials to choose from to finishing on time and budget, I feel confident when recommending my clients to you for their granite and stone needs. We look forward to continued working relationship in the future.    Tony P.


December 2012

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.
