Granite Facts

Things To Know About Your New Countertops!

  

Pre-Installation Checklist:

· All plumbing fixtures and sinks should be disconnected prior to your installation.

· New fixtures and sinks should be dropped off at the fabrication shop or have them at the job site when we come to make templates for your countertops.

· Plan to have your kitchen “under construction” for 3-5 days, not including your backsplash installation.

· If you have laminate or tile countertops, your cabinets may need paint or stain work done after your granite installation (we can provide a contractor if you do not have one.)

· Shims may need to be added if your cabinets are not level in order to have the granite/quartz installed correctly. 

· Countertops slabs weight several hundred pounds, and safety must be our number one priority. Sometimes, the safest way to install granite in tight spaces may cause minor damage to paint & cabinets. Plan to have possible touch-up paint and/or stain work done after your installation instead of before.


 

Some points to remember:

· Take samples to help you make your slab selection(s); include: paint colors, floor samples, backsplash tile, or any other finishes that you want to incorporate. 

· If we have already given an estimate based on a granite sample from our showroom, please give the salesman the name of the particular granite. With this information, he will make an effort to keep you in the quoted price range. 

· The slabs will not be individually priced. This means that any slab you select can cause the price to fluctuate in either direction. Although the salesperson will not be able to give you an exact price, he/she should be able to tell you what range the slab is in (Group 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5/Exotics).

· Keep in mind your slab thickness. We only fabricate 3 cm slabs over 2cm slabs. They are less fragile, especially when dealing with marble and granite slabs that contain a large number of veins and movement. Although 2cm slabs are sometimes less expensive, we do charge more to fabricate them, so that isn’t usually a savings that the homeowner will see.

· If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the office at 361-582-0000.
