    Blue Surf Pebble sheen....was it an upgraded color?

    Hi All,
    I realize my Atlanta area build thread is 3 months behind. I promise to update this weekend. Significant delays due to rain!

    At contract time in October PB didn't offer Blue Surf Pebble Sheen. He had never even heard of it. They are finally aware it exists. We are currently going with Blue Granite.

    Today I am told Blue Surf is an upgraded color because it's new...$1,000. Anyone else experience this? Been a good experience so far and feel like I am getting a good deal on all aspects of my build but this feels like a rip off. Since I am way over budget I really don't want to spend another $1k, thus I think I'll stuck with Blue Granite. What do you all think - is it really an upgrade or just a ripoff?

    Not sure - I couldn't find any to look at when we built last summer - we got Blue Granite and LOVE IT!!

    We aren't using PebbleTech, but when I was in negotiations with the company that uses that product, the Surf Blue was a standard color with them as well.

    Standard for me too, but we are all in Texas. Maybe location makes a difference....
