The Process

So you are ready to go upgrade your kitchen countertops, but are not sure what’s next? The following guide will help you understand the entire kitchen countertop remodelling process so you will know what to expect from start to finish. Once you have contacted Superior Granite LLC to get your free in-home estimate, we will measure your countertops space, ask you about the type and color of natural stone you want for your kitchen, and ask you to select a type of countertop edges. Once we have this information, we will be able to provide you with an estimate for the project. After you accept our estimate, we will ask you to come and select a natural stone slab from which your kitchen countertops will be fabricated.

Countertop Template

When creating a template for your kitchen countertops Superior Granite will set up an agreeable time with you so a template of your kitchen cabinets can be created. In order to expedite the process of creating a template for your kitchen countertops, it is important that you remove everything from your kitchen countertops’ surface before we arrive at your home. Depending on your remodeling project, templates can take up to a couple of hours to create. All sinks, faucets and cook tops will be checked for compatibility and fit. If you plan to have a new faucet or sink installed, be sure to have everything on hand. Kitchen cabinets are reviewed for any adjustments required. Overhang, general support and any other personal preferences you may have will be discussed during the process of creating the template. We also discuss with you seam location on your natural stone kitchen countertops. As a rule, the fewer the seams, the better. During the template creation process, Superior Granite will determine if specialized tooling will be required for the sink and range cutouts. All electrical outlets, sink, and faucets will be noted. The thickness of natural stone kitchen countertops will be three centimeters.

Countertop Fabrication

Once the template is complete and you have selected a natural stone slab from which your kitchen countertops will be fabricated, we will ask you final approval on everything to make sure everything is exactly what you want. Prior to starting the fabrication of your kitchen countertops, we will ask you for final approval on the natural stone slab. The slab of natural stone you selected will be precisely cut with a diamond tip saw to fit the templates. The jointing seams will be sealed and the edge will be treated to create a smooth, attractive area. Please note that if you select a color of natural stone that is not in stock, it may take up to two weeks lead time before we can start fabrication of your kitchen countertops.
