Your Countertop Process
Step 1: Quote
Upon your request, the quote will be determined on the basis of your cabinet layouts provided. If plans are unavailable, we also render site measure option. However, you might need to wait for the quote depending upon the first measure date available in our schedule. For accurate quotes, you need to provide us more information about your personal choices such as style, color and preferred stone along with the sinks and appliances of the place.
There are some items excluded from the standard quote. It’s important for us to make our clients aware of those additional costs that are charged for the additional work done. The work includes removal of existing countertop, reconnection of dishwasher, plumbing or electrical, lazy-suzan posts and other cabinet related elements. There are many cabinet modifications such as heavy sinks, fitting the sink into a cabinet and many more.
Step 2: Choosing Right Material
Some natural products such as granite, marble, limestone etc. are distinguished on the basis of pattern variation. We encourage our clients to choose the best stone for their location. Thus, we execute slab selection and placement program to ensure that our clients are satisfied with the stone and its characteristics.
There are numerous ways to select perfect material for your place. You can browse over various websites providing information about countertop material. Visit a stone yard to inspect the stones especially with your fabricator. They can guide you better about what stone will provide perfect look to your place without burning your savings. It might seem time consuming but its for your good.
Step 3: Templating Countertops
After getting your approval, we will request to deposit 50% of the amount to further proceed to template stage. Once the cabinets are installed, our professional ‘templators’ will visit your place to move further with your project. The location of seam and faucet is determined during the templating session. It is strongly recommended to check the sink size before placing an order for new sink. You can ask our sales team if you have any doubt about the size.
All the crucial elements of the kitchen such as sinks, RO filters, hot water dispensers, stove, cook top etc. must be available before templating process.
You must notify your kitchen contractor about cabinet installation date to avoid any delay in the scheduling. Make sure all the cabinetry and other elements of the countertops must be leveled and properly installed.
