Cedarburg, WI Homeowner Upgrades their Kitchen & Bath with Granite
Cedarburg is a city in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin. It’s the home to a little over 11,400 people (as of 2010). This town is situated about 20 miles away from Milwaukee, which sits to the south. Along its eastern and western borders, you will find Grafton and the Town of Cedarburg.
The first settler that came to Cedarburg, WI was a man named Joseph Gardenier. He came to the town and build a log cabin near Cedar Creek (currently known as Hamilton). This cabin was used as the headquarters of his surveying business, which helped to construct Green Bay Rd.
There’s another settler who came to Cedarburg and purchased land from the government back in 1842 named William Ludwig Groth. He is oftentimes referred to as the first settler. He platted the land along Cedar Creek. The name Cedarburg derived from Frederick August Leuning, who immigrated here in 1843. Cedarburg means “the castleof cedars”. It wasn’t until December 1844 when the town was officially named Cedarburg.

Beautiful Granite Stone Installed in Historic Cedarburg Home
Badger Granite was contacted by a homeowner in Cedarburg who owned a beautiful historic home. The kitchen and bathroom still maintained its original fixtures and appliances, but now the homeowner was looking to make upgrades to both areas. There was only only bathroom in the three bedroom home.
The client met with our professionals and discussed what type of upgrades he was planning to have done. He heard from a friend of our quality granite slabs and decided to hire us to perform these installations. The entire kitchen was being gutted out by a general contractor, so we waited until the new cabinetry was installed, so we could go in and perform measurements.
We gave the customer an estimate for both the granite slabs and the installation. After seeing our portfolio of services, they decided to also include a wall of granite backsplash. This would be installed near the stove and would cover the entire space between the cabinets and the countertops. The area behind the stove was also to be converted into a granite tile wall.
Selecting the Granite Stone
The customer came by our showroom to view the various types of granite slabs we had available. The great thing about natural stone is that no two slabs are ever identical. This makes your slab unique from everyone else’s. The customer decided to go with a sandy-colored granite slab, which went well with the kitchen’s beige and black décor. The appliances were being replaced with all black refrigerator, glass-top stove and dishwasher.
The end product was a more modern kitchen. The hardwood floors remained the same, keeping some of its historic appeal intact.
In the bathroom, the customer upgraded to a claw-foot tub and a stand up shower. A new vanity was also to be installed. Our professionals took measurements for this slab as well. The client decided to go with a white slab of granite for the restroom.
Always a Happy Customer
Once our contractors came to the property and performed the work, the customer was very happy. All of the other work done to the kitchen and bathroom had already been completed, so the work we performed were the finishing touches.
Our experts always work hard to ensure all small details are performed adequately. The client decided to go with professional edges. He was torn between the level and demi bullnose edges, but ended up going with the latter for the kitchen and the full bullnose for the bathroom.
Completing the Project
The installation of the tile granite backsplash and countertops in the kitchen and bathroom was all completed within one day. All of the slabs were precut by our professionals and brought tot he property. We ensured to measure numerous times to prevent mistakes with the shape and size.
The bathroom vanity and kitchen counters were all brand new, so no counters needed to be removed. This hastened the project, allowing us to finish the same day. We arrived to the property bright and early in the morning and were gone before dinnertime.
