We are currently on our 3rd project from Baker Marble + Granite, and couldn’t be happier.

They did an amazing job on our quartz fireplace install, with virtually no visible seams.

The prices are fair, they’re open and honest, and everyone we’ve interacted with has been very nice and accommodating.

We will definitely be using them in the future for any other projects that may come up.

The Baker staff did an amazing job on our kitchen.

The Vetrazzo countertop looks great and everything went very smooth.

It was great to have such experienced staff on the “Living With Ed” television show.

When it came time to find a stone fabricator for my Kitchen and Master Bath remodel, the choice was simple, Baker Marble.

Having used them on a number of commercial projects, I knew that they provide a high level of service, top quality fabrication, and attention to detail.

My wife and I could not be happier with both our Kitchen counters and our Master Bath Vanity and gorgeous steam shower!

I recommend Baker Marble to both clients and friends, when stone fabrication is required.

Just wanted to thank you and your team for the beautiful work they did on our fireplace, we could not be happier with the product you delivered.

When it’s time to do the kitchen, we know where we’re going!

The people at Baker Marble went out of their way to make sure the process was as easy as possible, and that we were happy with our counters.

We are.

It’s so easy to take them for granite.

Anyone who goes anywhere else for stone has lost their marble.

We would like to congratulate you on a wonderful job installing the marble in our bathroom.

We are exceedingly happy with the quality of the workmanship. Moreover, we found your employees, at every level, to be highly professional, punctual and respectful.

This was the second home in which I have had Baker fabricated natural stone counters. The service and quality have been excellent both times, and the follow-up service I have received has been among the best from any service oriented company I have dealt with.

I would recommend them to anyone looking for quality and service.

E. Weiss

Alameda County Resident

Through this all, everyone from Baker who I came in contact with was courteous and genuinely helpful and looking out for the good of the job. I am so pleased that I chose to spend a little extra and get the quality of service that I received.

I cannot say enough nice things about Baker Marble products and service.

After I did some shopping around, my contractor recommended Baker, and I am SO glad I took his advice.

Latham talked with me about what I wanted, recommended some things, and took me to the back to show me the slabs.

I fell in love with one, and we proceeded to generally figure out how to carve it into the pieces I needed.

He invited me to come back and look at it for tile and paint color matching, and to make final decisions about the cuts.

I did both, and brought my husband to look at the quartzite slab that would be in his bathroom.

I’ve met and worked with several people from the Baker ensemble, and they have been professional, kind, and very detail oriented – every one of them. Each of these folks does his or her job very well and produces a fantastic outcome for the customer.

My husband and I love our new bathroom; one of the reasons it is so beautiful is that the amazing stone was cut and installed to perfection.

Thanks so much to everyone at Baker!

Hi Latham,

I just want to thank you so so much for everything. First, for offering the Vetrazzo to the public. We are so grateful that it landed in our hands!

Then, the holding it patiently all that time, and answering our questions throughout, and dealing with our needs for more, for less, for different, etc.

The measuring, the final decisions, and the installation had a measure of uncertainty, but we made it through, and in the end, we are thrilled!

The craftsmanship of your work is excellent and artful. We love the way it turned out – it is just beautiful!

I just wanted to take a minute to commend you and your staff for a job well done. I have been painstakingly remodeling my master bathroom and I had become very frustrated with my inability to find the right countertop for my new vanity.

I had visited countless large granite suppliers in the area and I found there selections to be more of the same ho-hum.

Upon visiting Baker Marble & Granite I instantly knew I was in the right place.

Paige showed me a wonderful selections of surfaces and took the time to listen to my woes and helped me make the right choice (beautiful honed Limestone), Robert patiently worked with my small space, and Sergio did a first rate installation.

It was a pleasure to do business with such qualified professional.

Thanks a bunch!

I could not be more pleased with Baker Marble and Granite. I love, without reservation, my new marble kitchen and vanity counters.

Baker has an excellent working relationship with the best marble and granite distributors.

Latham, in the sales office, is a delight to work with, knowledgeable, patient and fair during price negotiations. His crew of estimators, fabricators and installers are superior, professional and always on time.

I highly recommend Baker and will work with them in the future if the need arises.

Unbelievable! The results are better than Martha and I could have EVER imagined!

Thanks for the constant assistance with the design and layout, this made the project special and personalized. We’ve got three bathrooms coming up, can’t wait!. Thanks

We took a fireplace that was formerly plain-jane, and converted it to a focal masterpiece of our beautiful livingroom.

Thanks to all at Baker Marble for making this a smooth, and enjoyable road.

Your work stands apart from all others, you live up to old-world standards (and mine).

Les & Jesus have been fantastic to work with. Super helpful with talking me through various types of stone, what is available (since I was looking for a remnant), and with getting a piece cut and installed for a fair price.
Highly recommended.

Fantastic customer service….Latham and Crystal were great to work with!

They can handle both big and small jobs. From a new kitchen to a simple table top…Baker is the right choice.

M B.

San Francisco, CA

Fantastic work/outcomes, reasonable prices, and exceptional customer service.

When I moved to San Francisco, I was devastated when my grandmother’s small marble pedestal broke. The movers offered to have one of their pre-selected companies repair it, but they all had horrible reviews. So I searched high and low for a marble fabricator who would be willing to accept a small job like this and who would treat this piece with love and care.

I called over a dozen companies. Some were only marble sellers (i.e., not fabricators) and others were unwilling to take such a small job. Others were willing to do it but after speaking with them more, I realized they didn’t specialize in marble and were proposing to use materials that wouldn’t work on the stone I have.

Finally, I found Baker Marble + Granite. Letham is the owner and spoke with me directly. He listened carefully and patiently to everything I had to say about the outcome I wanted (wanted to be able to use the pedestal again so it needed to be able to hold weight, wanted it to be fixed in a visually appealing way so that the piece didn’t look “repaired,” etc.). He reviewed the pictures I sent him and could tell about the stone off the top of his head – type of marble, where it came from, what this meant for working with the stone, etc. I was very impressed with how knowledgeable he is.

He said he’d be happy to fix the pedestal and said he could do it in about 2-3 hours and would charge me about $200. I brought the pedestal into his workshop in Oakland and he pointed out that when the pedestal broke, it also became bent and was off center. He further pointed out that there were some water stains on the table top portion. He offered to fix these problems while also reattaching the table top – at no extra charge. I was very touched at this and gladly accepted.

My pedestal was repaired and ready about a week later. When I picked it up, it was straight, centered, and the table top had been reattached so that you couldn’t tell it had ever broken. It took a bit more time than Letham had originally quoted but he offered to hold to his $200 estimate, which I really appreciated.

I am extremely satisfied with every aspect of my experience with Baker! This pedestal has a lot of sentimental value along with being an expensive piece and Baker did a wonderful job!

Baker Marble & Granite was recommended to us by the stone yard where we purchased our granite waaay back in 1999! That was before granite became ‘the thing’ for countertops.

Baker is a wonderful outfit. There is a whole lot more to granite/marble fabrication and installation than meets the eye. Our kitchen granite has a wash of veins and mineral tones that swirl through it.

Rather than just chopping it up to fit, Baker designed the fabrication cuts to emphasize and follow the flow of the colors and streaks throughout the countertops; they are amazing.

We were also able to find a small remnant of marble that fit our bathroom vanity perfectly. So happy to hear these guys are still producing such fine craftsmanship. Professional. Attention to detail.

If marble people had rock stars these would be the guys. They installed a kitchen countertop for me and did an amazing job.

What is more notable though was I was unhappy with the color of the grout and they came back THREE times to change it for me until I was finally happy with it.

They answered my thousands of questions with unending patience and were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful in choosing the right place to cut on the marble for my countertop.

I had cheeper bids to do the work but these guys were worth every penny. If you need stone cut and installed these are your people, you will not be unhappy.

I had a couple of very extensive conversations with Latham at Baker Marble and Granite about my kitchen remodel and the challenge of getting countertops that I actually liked and didn’t cost me an arm and a leg.

Latham gave a lot of good and thoughtful advice and I was polite and personable in the process. In the end I decided to go a more eco-friendly route than stone, but I was very impressed with the amount of time he spent with me and how super-helpful he was.

And the price quote he gave me for the job seemed pretty reasonable. Seems like a great place.

Highest quality workmanship and professionalism. I was 110% satisfied in all parts of my project.

At first I thought I was going to pay to much for a quality job, but by the time they finished, I felt like I got a great deal and did not over pay.

We used Baker Marble for several jobs when we upgraded our home. In the past, we have used other companies and never been as satisfied with the quality of the work as we have with Baker.

They are very carful to make sure the job is done correctly. From the stone quality and template grain selection to the measuring and installation, everything is top of the line and their prices are moderate.

I love my kitchen counters and this was not an easy job. My husband is an architect and they are not easy to please, but he is very satisfied with the jobs that Baker has done for us.

Also, everyone in the shop is very friendly and professional.

We have used Baker Marble and Granite more than once. We have found them to be extremely professional, timely on their jobs and the craftmanship and quality of their work is first class, especially in attention to details.

We used Baker Marble and Granite for our kitchen and bathroom remodel, and they did great.

They measured and cut the granite and marble slabs perfectly (they use a computer controlled machine). What was most amazing was the marble in the bathroom–they found two different pieces to fit a ten foot long vanity top and lined them up so that the veins in the marble looked like they came from one piece.

They even colored portions of the grout between them to match so that there is no break in the veins. The kitchen counter is U shaped and over 20 feet long–also perfect.

When I originally installed granite counter tops in my kitchen, a got a number of bids including one from Baker Marble and Granite who came highly recommended.

I ended up selecting another company because it was a little cheaper – what a huge mistake. Since the installation about 5 years ago cracks have developed in the granite between the holes drilled for the faucets.

I tried to get the company that installed the granite to fix the problem and they just plain blew me off. I then called Baker and they promptly sent a guy over to check out the problem.

It turns out that the counter was installed so that it was leaning back slightly towards the back splash which meant water accumulated back there and finally made its way through the caulking. The end result was that the plywood under the counter warped which caused the granite to crack.

It was a pretty significant crack and I was thinking that I was going to have replace the counter top. To my surprise the Baker rep explained to me in detail how to go about properly cleaning, drying and re-caulking both the back of the counter and the crack. These guys could have easily convinced me to spend thousands of dollars on a new counter, but instead told me how to make the problem go away for a few hours work and the cost of materials.

Honesty means a lot to me and if I ever need to put in marble or granite in the future, I will definitely go with Baker Mable and Granite.

I have been working with Baker Marble on kitchen and custom furniture projects for over ten years. I am a custom furniture designer/builder as well as a kitchen designer.

I put a great deal of time into designing, material selection and relentless attention to detail in my work. I use a small group of reliable suppliers in many areas of fabrication for my projects.

I only use Baker Marble because they are smart, prompt, communicate effectively, are fine craftsmen as well as an excellent value too.

Baker Marble’s people, from the owners to template makers to installers share my fanatical attention to detail that sets my work apart. They are incredibly knowledgeable of materials and use a combination of high-tech machining along with fine finish craftsmanship.

I have found them to be extremely sensitive to exactly what I and my clients want, be it important details, specific materials and the myriad of issues that come up with custom work. They are also really helpful in refining designs details which can save a lot of time and money for my clients.

A good friend recommended Baker Marble and Granite to my wife and me when we bought our house as we were completely redoing the kitchen. They made the Kitchen remodel the funnest part for us from helping with the design and ,of course, the granite tops they put in to the kitchen sink even.

They particuliarly worked with us on the best type of granite for the price range we were working with. They were complete professionals throughout the experience.

I would highly recommend them as the only phone call to make for your Granite or Marble needs…
