Why DPD for your Countertops

Quality Granite and Stone Countertops in Barrie Ontario – Di Pietra Design

A note from our founder:

Being in this business for over 34 years, I have seen a lot of people making the wrong decisions and not doing their homework. When it comes to ‘value added products’ such as stone countertops; you truly do get what you pay for. The age old saying could not ring more truer in this industry:

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten. -Benjamin Franklin

Get it done right the first time. Don’t be fooled by companies promising you the best price without the ability to deliver the best product as well. Great value comes from being able to deliver the best price and the best product together. Be sure to do your homework to find out whether the company you are buying your stone countertop / product from are buying their stone from a reseller vs buying it direct from certified quarries. This will ensure you are not paying for extra middle man costs. Remember that if you are paying for extra costs such as these, the company has to get their profits from somewhere and most likely they are going to take it from the quality process of your product: IE  sacrificing qualified skill labor, finishing materials, technology and other resources needed to produce a quality product with great value.  Our systems are sustainable in all areas from our people, to our machinery and our product. I will continue to hold on to these values until the day I retire and hopefully my legacy will continue long after I am gone. This is what being a true craftsman is all about.

Welcome to Di Pietra Design where pride and craftsmanship has been our reputation for over 30 years. Di Pietra, meaning ‘of stone’ in Italian represents just what we do. We are a manufacture that designs, fabricates and installs stone products. Our portfolio includes everything from countertops, fireplace surrounds, bathtub surrounds, spas and showers. We are the largest stone fabricator north of the GTA with an in-house selection of over 30,000 sqft of stone. We serve communities throughout southern and northern Ontario.

Our state of the art facility offers leading edge CNC machinery and technology supported by our highly-trained team of craftsmen and artisans. When you walk into our facility you will witness the technology, the science, the cleanliness and the hum of dedicated people. We master the art of stone to each project we handle, as no two projects are alike. From cutting to polishing, the stone is slowly transformed as our team perfects each piece. The science of stone cannot be fully appreciated until each piece is digitally templated, crafted by our sawyers, delivered and carefully put into place.

From Perry: My experience with Di Pietra Design was second to NON from start to finish. Our visit to the showroom to select our stone was very informative, by professional staff. The template was quick and painless, by a very courteous staff member, and finally the install was very professional, and informative by very well trained people. I would recommend Di Pietra Design to anyone looking to have any type of stone installed in their project.
Very well done Di Pietra!! We love the product and the support through the entire process!

From Jewels: 10/10 experience from the minute I stopped into Di Pietra Design’s showroom in Barrie. Every staff member treated us just great; friendly, professional and competent. The communication was flawless. The workmanship is outstanding and the counter tops are nothing short of stunning. Don’t waste your time shopping around and risking disappointment. Di Pietra has everything you need. They’re a one-stop shop for delivering happiness to their clients.

From Peter: Went looking for a replacement for a damaged bathroom vanity surface. First place had an OPEN sign but nobody home. Next place was Di Pietra. Open, welcoming, took my info, introduced quickly to a designer/consultant. She did NOT try to ‘up-sell’ me, but offered a reasonably priced solution to my problem. After a verbal estimate we soon had a detailed quote and stone selected. Follow up with laser measurement and then a very profession and speedy installation. I had planned for damage to the walls. There was no damage at all, and everything was cleaned up in about 30 minutes. A very professional job from everyone. A super looking new vanity and sink. Can’t ask for better than that.

From Maurice: Recently moved into a new-build home in Tiny, and had asked our builder for pricing in completing a simple “servery” in our basement to accommodate a regular stove and frig combo. This meant no upper cabinets. Price was over $10K. Looking around found pre-fab cabinets in the GTA, but wasn’t happy with their selection of countertop. Several enquiries later, and a visit to DiPietra Design convinced us that they were the best price, service and provided us with a reasonable and fair quote for 13 lin. feet of Caesarstone quartz countertop (Atlantic Salt) to match our self0installed white shaker cabinets. They were more than accommodating with their scheduling, templating and advising us throughout the entire process (both Lindsey and Laurie were super friendly and thorough). Questions were also answered promptly and patiently. The installation was beyond expectations. Pino and helper (forgotten his name!) were also thorough in protecting our floors, stairs and basement. They made very little dust and mess, and cleaned up after themselves completely, and making sure we were advised of what was expected for letting the countertop set with the undermount sink, and how to take care of the quartz. This seems to be the pervasive “service” philosophy behind DPD!! Highly recommended.
