We are particularly proud of our craftsmen, who take the time to lay out each individual piece of stone and coordinate the colors and veining before they cut.

Important Reminders

Project Access

  • Please have open access to driveways and doorways.
  • For renovation projects, please have the existing counter tops removed

Please ensure that all plumbing, electric or gas appliances are disconnected and moved away from the counter area.
Appliances should be on-site but not installed. Once the counters are installed, while the crew is on-site, you can move your stove or cook top in place to ensure proper fit.  We recommend you have your plumber return the day after installation to re-install faucets and sink drains. This will allow adequate time for adhesives and sealants to cure.

  • Faucet holes and soap dispensers will be drilled on-site. (Expect a minimal amount of dust)
  • The sinks will be mounted to the underside of the counter with clips at time of installation.
  • Silicone is added, providing a watertight seal.
  • Allow 6 to 12 hours of curing time for the silicone to set before a plumber reconnects the plumbing.
  • Please note: We are not licensed plumbers, so we are unable to disconnect or re-connect your plumbing.

We respect your home. You can expect us to be professional and efficient — in and out in just a few hours! Our crew will pick up after themselves and will take every precaution to protect your walls, floors and minimize dust. Although the primary fabrication is completed at the shop we sometimes have to make minor on-site adjustments, additionally we faucet holes are drilled on site. Its important to remember that countertop installation is a construction process and residual dust should be expected. We recommend that you drape or cover areas as precautionary measure to prevent dust. The job site will be left in broom-clean condition.
