The Countertop Process
From idea… to installation… to enjoyment!
Contact me to set an appointment
I will answer many of your initial questions via telephone or e-mail.
We will then set a time that is convenient for you to meet at your home.
At that time I will take measurements of your project, discuss options
and estimate the cost of the project. This information will be provided
to you as a formal proposal. We can then begin the process immediately
upon acceptance of the proposal and receipt of deposit.
We will then schedule two more visits to your home. The first scheduled
date allows us to build a template of your project. The second scheduled
date will be the day we install your new countertops.
For granite, quartz, marble, or any other natural stone countertops,
I will be directing you to visit a stone slab distributor in order to select
your material. We will then order the stone that you have selected and
have it delivered to our fabrication facility.
Sinks & Appliances
All sinks, faucets, appliances etc. pertaining to your project need to
be purchased and/or delivered to your home prior to your template date.
This information is especially important when items are being special ordered.
Our template personnel will pick up these items, or their corresponding
templates, and take them with him/her to our facility for our fabricators
to reference during the construction of your project.
Removal Of Existing Countertops
Prior to our arrival, existing countertops must be removed (applicable
in cases where we are replacing existing countertops as opposed to cases
when new cabinets have been installed). You will have the option in your
contract to have our company remove existing countertops, or you may elect
to do so yourself. If you elected to have us remove existing countertops,
be sure that the old countertops are cleared and ready to be removed by
Plumbing & Electrical
Countertop fabricators generally do not carry a contractor license for
plumbing or electrical work. In the event that your project requires such
work you can choose your own provider or we can recommend a plumber and/or
an electrician for you. Should any plumbing or electrical connections or
disconnection’s be required, then it is the customers responsibility
to see that disconnection’s have been made prior to the installation
date. Reconnections should be scheduled after the installers have completed
We will install the new countertops, sub-tops, and
back splash. Once the installation is complete
the countertops are then thoroughly cleaned and sealed (natural
stone only) Your project
Once you are 100% happy with the final project we will collect the balance
of your contract price.
Enjoy For A Lifetime
If you are like most of our clients, you will be extremely happy with
the results. Call
some of your closest friends and family. Invite them over to see
your new creation! If they like what they see, I would appreciate the opportunity
to meet with them and discuss their countertop dreams.
