Level 1 Granite
Level 1 granite is the lowest grade of granite, but it still looks great. The reason it is considered level 1 is because it has a very simple design and the colors are standard. Prices for level 1 granite are typically in the $40-$50 range per square foot. Some homeowners prefer the simple look rather than a higher grade of granite.
Level 2 Granite

Granite has more than just 3 levels. the quarries do not have level one through five, level A through D, it’s really simplified. They call them basics, As the granite level increases, you should expect to pay $58-$100.
