Top benefits of choosing a single supplier for all your surface needs

On any construction job, there are a lot of moving pieces that must be seamlessly coordinated in order to stay on track with project timelines. Many contractors have chosen to simplify this process by selecting a single source supplier for all of their countertop and surface needs. Not only does this save them time by eliminating the need to coordinate multiple suppliers, orders and deliveries, it can also lead to increased profit margins.

At L.E. Smith, we take our role as your partner seriously. As a result, here are a few of the advantages our clients benefit from when they trust us to be their single-source supplier for all of their countertop and surface needs.
