Hello! I’m Lori Hethmon, the owner and founder of Granite Grannies, Inc. I would love to share my story with you:
I grew up in a family of custom home builders. I learned about old-world craftsmanship from my father and uncles. After several years of selling high-end real estate in California, I began working for a small company that imported some of the world’s finest hand-embroidered linens. My work took me to some of America’s most beautiful homes. I was captivated by what I saw: Every single one of these homes had granite! Not one of them had used formica, quartz, or Corian.™ I decided that there had to be a way to purchase granite for my own home, but at an affordable price. Then I met “Granny,” a successful businesswoman from out West who taught me the secrets of buying stone overseas. With a friend, we set up shop in my old Maryland bank barn. Granite Grannies was born.
Granite Grannies has since become more than I ever dreamed. We now own a shop and warehouse in Upper Marlboro and have a wonderful staff of dedicated countertop experts and skilled stoneworkers. I am proud that our commitment to quality American workmanship continues to far exceed that of other granite companies.
Yet, our success is due to more than just our workmanship. Yes, it’s about the final product, but for us it’s also about the process. Granite Grannies specializes in one well-done kitchen, bath or custom application at a time. We are greatly concerned with meeting your personal design and lifestyle needs. From initial granite selection through the installation and finishing process we are in constant communication with you.
I want you to be so satisfied with your finished granite project that you will say, like my own grandmothers would say when they saw something timeless, elegant, and unique: “Oh my, isn’t it beautiful!”


Products And Services

The Granite Grannies ‘secret’ is dialogue with each home owner. Every home is unique; so we are in constant communication with you during the planning and installation of your granite project. Our goal is to help you fully use whatever material you purchase. Often there is enough left over to do something extra; perhaps full height backsplash, a bathroom, or an accent table!

Granite is an investment in your home, and we consider it our responsibility to help you select the perfect stone for the needs and lifestyle of your family. Granite Grannies offers three approaches to granite selection:

Granite Grannies’ Rotating House Stones
Stone is our passion, and we want you to experience its natural beauty like we do. This is why while most companies have a basic five to ten permanent stock stones, Granite Grannies brings in a continually changing selection of diverse and exciting stones. This means that, even in our most economical range of stones, each kitchen is one of a kind.

Our Limited-Time Premium Imports
Lori, the owner of Granite Grannies, periodically takes buying trips the stone centers of the world to hand pick stones to import. Her most recent trip in October of 2010 was to Verona, Italy. There she visited some of the most prestigious stone centers in the world. In Verona alone there are over 200 stone suppliers. After several days of decision making, seven colors were loaded onto ships to cross the Atlantic. These stones are Antolinis. Antonli Luigi & C. is an Italian fabricator whose work is the Tiffany’s of the stone world. The most exciting part of buying trips is that by directly importing these colors we can offer them to our customers at prices comparable to stones bought from U.S. suppliers.

Custom & Exotic Stones
We believe it is our job to make sure our customers find the stone that is “the one.” We have excellent trade relationships with the best wholesale suppliers throughout the mid-Atlantic region, and our customers can visit these suppliers to choose from hundreds of stones. Selecting the perfect granite from a huge warehouse of raw stone can be overwhelming. Granite Grannies assists throughout the process, making sure that you have selected the product that will meet your family’s needs.

Granite Grannies specializes in custom residential work. Our American journeymen and stoneworkers are qualified to work with any stone, including exotic varieties and unique designs.
One beautiful kitchen at time. Timeless, Elegant, and Unique. That’s the Granite Grannies way.

"Lorie is passionate about her stones and it shows in the workmanship and details. She called my stone before I did and insisted I look at the whole slab before deciding. Thank you Lorie I really enjoyed working with you."
