I've done a few marble job, but am doing my first granite tile job.  Any difference in installation technique?

RE: granite installation
If you can do marble than granite is no different to install so you should have no problem. Granite is a much harder stone than marble so cut slowly and be sure the blade doesn't bind up. Hopefully you will be using a wet saw as opposed to a handheld (unsafe). Other than that I would recommend using the new wedge levelers by QEP for a perfectly flat finish with no lippage. Good luck!

Here is a link to the wedge levelers:

RE: granite installation
Thanks Michael.  Yes, I will be using a wet saw.  Much easier than the handheld!  That installation guide will help a lot too.  Thanks again!
