Granite

Granite is the material chosen when permanence, beauty, and complete freedom from deterioration and maintenance are prime requirements. It is the most durable among the natural stones.

Regardless of its use, kitchen countertops, fire places, or bars, granite will add a sophisticated and luxurious appearance to any house. You can find granite that will satisfy any taste, they are available in many colors, and also come in a wide variety of veins, swirls, and crystal patterns. And keep in mind that unlike dyed synthetic products, granite will be colored through-and-through. An added advantage of granite is that oftentimes the sunlight will dance off the small crystals contained in it; resulting in minute-to-minute changes in appearance throughout the day, thus adding to the overall richness and the ambiance in your home.

Bellow we’ve outlined the basic steps of our granite work process flow:

As soon as you receive the Job Confirmation, The Granite Countertop Project goes through the productions steps of templating, fabrication, tear-out, and installation.

TEMPLATING
On the day of templating, we advise our clients to have their countertops clear and free of any objects. This will help our work process to be efficient while at the same time your items will be protected from any dust or damage. Templates usually take a couple of hours.

  • Sinks/cooktops/faucets are checked for fit and compatibility which means all such units must be on site during this phase.
  • Cabinets are checked in order to determine if they need to be adjusted
  • Cabinetry refinements will be discussed prior to countertop installation.
  • Seam replacement will be discussed as well.

FABRICATION
Before the fabrication phase begins, we ask you to confirm the slabs. We are also going to ask for your final approval of the Post Template Checklist. If at this time, you decide to change the drawings and/or granite type, we will adjust the price up or down accordingly and we will let you know right away.

TEAR OUT
If your project requires tear-out and removal of existing countertops we will do so at the time of installation. Since we will disconnect your plumbing during this phase, please make sure you do not use the dishwasher until your plumbing is reconnected back.
