The countertop project goes through the production steps of templating, fabrication, tear out and installation. Tear out and installation occurs on the same day.
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:
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.
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.
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.
If your project requires that we tear out and remove your existing countertops, we will do so at time of 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.
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.
