INSTALLATION PREPARATION

An average job takes 4-6 hours for installation start to finish.

Access: Granite countertops are extremely heavy, and installers need clear access to entry ways. Please have your walkways and driveways as clear as possible.

Safety:  Please remove any breakable items and cover items to protect them from dust. Granite installation can create a lot of dust.  Our installers do try to control the mess the best they can, but please remember that this is construction and it is by definition a messy business.

Countertops: On the day of template our technician will use a laser templating device to create a digital template of your countertops. He will need an unubstructed view of the entire countertop so we ask that the counters are clear from any objects.

Cabinets:  We recommend that you empty the cabinets under the sink base because they will be drilling the faucet holes on site. Even though we have one guy drilling and another holding the vacuum it is impossible to catch all dust. We will vacuum up our mess, but do not wipe down the cabinetry.

Faucets: Please have ready any faucets, soap dispensers,  disposal switches, reverse osmosis spigots and any other items that need to be drilled into the countertops. Your plumber will NOT be able to drill extra holes.

Sinks:  Top mount sinks will be cut on site inside the home after the tops have been set in place. Under-mount sinks are cut and polished at our shop and attached at the job site.

Cook Tops:  These will be cut out inside the home once the top has been set on the cabinets. Even though we do our best to lessen the dust it is the responsibility of the homeowner to remove any soft glide hardware or anything they fell the fine granite dust will damage.

Dishwashers:  These need to be in their final position. We install a metal bracket across the top of the cabinet that you can screw your dishwasher tabs into the following day.

Refrigerators:  These need to be in their final position.
