Installation Process of Custom Countertops

One of the first steps in the installation process is to select the stone for your countertops. Typically, you travel to the company’s facility and pick out the slab(s). Selecting your own slab ensures a color and pattern that is right for you. It will also help you avoid any unwanted surprises before the stone is cut.

Before fabrication begins, the estimator or template maker creates detailed templates at your home. Workers then cut and polish the stone using the templates as a guide.

Afterward, the installation crew brings the fabricated stone to your home, removes the old countertops, and installs the new ones. Depending on the size and complexity of the job, the installation process may take more than one day. The workers typically rip out the old countertops right before installing the new ones, so you can still use the kitchen. In order to complete installation, they will often need to disconnect the plumbing and gas.

Once the countertops are in place, cook tops, plumbing, garbage disposals, and associated electricity are hooked up or installed. These services are usually outside the stone installer’s scope of work.
