Ovens & Ranges
Removal and installation of ranges and ovens.
Choose from a variety of installation options depending on the appliances
you select to go with your new countertops.
Free-standing ranges have finished sides and rear control panels. This
type of range requires a “break” in
the countertop for the free standing to range to be pushed back
the back wall.
Slide In Ranges
Slide-in ranges are very similar to freestanding ranges except that there
is generally a strip of countertop installed across the back wall behind
the slide-in range. The cut out for this type of range is more precise
than freestanding ranges as its sides and back rest on top of the countertop
utilizing a small “lip” to support it.. Slide-in ranges have
a seamless, built-in look with controls on the front of the range.
Drop In Ranges
Drop-in ranges require a cutout in the countertop that is left unfinished
as the drop-in range covers the cutout completely. The cabinets will require
certain modifications using this type of range allowing for a tight fit.
Controls are generally mounted on the front of the type of range.
In the event the heating surface, and oven are separate units
in different locations, your heating surface
is considered a cook top. New cook tops generally come with a schematic
or a template
to give guidance for the countertop cut out that is required. If
you plan to use your existing cook top, then a measurement will be
from it to make the proper cut out in the countertop.
Single Or Double Ovens
single or double ovens have no bearing on countertop installation.
