Slab Selection:
At Granite Max opportunity to choose the exact slabs of natural stone that will be used in your project. You will be referred to our preferred stone yards and there the final slab selections will be made. The slab selection process starts with choosing your fabricator, the specialized subcontractor who will be measuring, cutting, and installing the finished product. The fabricator will be able to provide you with pricing, as well as information on the timeline and specific quantities required for your project.

During your selection appointment, one of the distributors experienced staff members will accompany you to view slabs and assist you in selecting the highest quality material for your project. Once you have approved your specific slabs, the distributor will tag them for you and notify Granite Max of your selection.

Job Confirmation:
The countertop project goes through the production steps of templating, fabrication, tear out and installation. Tear out and installation occurs on the same day.

Template:
When we arrive for templating, we ask that you have cleared your countertops and keep the work
area free of any objects. This will help us to finish the template efficiently, and will also protect your items from any dust or damage. Templates usually take a couple of hours. In the templating process, we make a pattern of your cabinets. During this phase:

  • All sinks/cooktops/faucets are checked for compatibility and fit (therefore all such units must be on-site at template).
  • Cabinets are reviewed for any adjustments required, to the best of determination.
  • Overhang, general support and any personal preferences are discussed. Any refinements needed to cabinetry, etc., which will be required prior to installation of your countertops, will be discussed with you.
  • Seam placement will be discussed.

Sink: 
During installation, your undermount sink(s), if applicable, will be mounted under your stone. Also cooktops and faucets, etc. will be dropped into place for confirmation of fit.

Project Information:
Below is a list of information we will ask for prior to the production process. We prefer to obtain all of this information/material at time of templating or very soon after.

  • Sinks (we will bring undermount sinks back to the shop)
  • Faucet make and model and placement
  • Cooktop/Range make and model; cutout dimensions; downdraft when applicable
  • Edge preference

Fabrication: 
Prior to fabrication, we encourage you to approve your slabs. If your drawing submitted for your quote differs from your actual job we will let you know at this time and adjust the price up or down accordingly.

Tear Out:
If your project requires that we tear out and remove your existing countertops, we will do so at time of installation.

Installation:
At installation, we ask that you also clear the work area of any objects and clear a path for the installers to carry the granite. The installation phase can take the better part of a day; and can require some final cutouts to be made in your home. Please keep in mind that this is a major remodeling job, there may be some residual dust over the next couple of days some dust can result even though our installers are equipped to catch the majority of it. Granite, if not resin coated, is sealed at time of installation.

Job Completion: 
Your inspection of the finished job is very important. The lead installer will review the installation with you, answer any questions you may have and ask for payment of the final balance due for your project.
