After you’ve selected the ideal stone color for your project, it’s time to schedule a templating appointment. During this process, a trained technician will use industry leading laser technology to properly measure your countertop space. To ensure accuracy at the time of installation, please make sure all the cabinets are installed and leveled, and that all of the appliances, sinks and accessories are present at the day of templating.
FINAL SLAB SELECTION
When your template has been created, it’s time to confirm the layout of the project on the slab.
Select a slab and do a slab layout to see exactly how your countertops will be cut.
If the stone you’ve selected has a varying pattern, we recommend a return visit to the stone yard and marking off which part of the slab will be used for your project. It’s the last chance for any changes. Within the next several days, your stone will be installed and sealed.
This is the last step of your remodeling process. Our team of experienced professionals is fully responsible for the result from its very beginning to the successful end. We’ve been installing natural stone countertops for 11 years.
We schedule an installation appointment with you for the time that suits you best. Please keep in mind that the installation process takes only a couple of hours. Installers will have a checklist for you to sign off on and a final balance invoice. You can pay the installers, pay online, or come by the office.

Will my granite look like the online sample?
Granite is a natural stone, hence its color, tone, granularity, pattern, and other variations are different at each slope. These emphasize the natural beauty of the stone. We use high-end photography and editing technologies to pick up the most suitable slabs, resembling the online images, but we suggest you look at the samples. They will give you a better idea of what your countertops will look like.
Can I cut food directly on a quartz countertop?
Quartz is a very tough and durable material, resistant to cuts and scratches unlike natural stone, so of course you can cut food on it, just don’t do this too often. We would still recommend using a cutting board on your quartz countertops, especially when working with raw meat, to keep them looking perfect for as long as possible. The ability to resist scratches and slicing damage to the countertops doesn’t mean quartz countertops are damage-proof, nor that the marks can’t be seen at all.
What is the difference between quartz countertops and granite?
Both stones have their pros and cons. Review their features to make a choice. Although quartz countertops are strong, durable, flexible, don’t need special maintenance, and the color patterns are consistent among slabs, they have some weaknesses, such as low resistance to heat and prolonged exposure to the sun. In its turn, granite is 100% natural, thus unique and beautiful, much more resistant to chemicals than quartz and resistant to heat. You can easily put a hot pan on it, however, we’d advise against doing so recurrently.
What are the quartz countertops pros?
Being one of the most popular stone materials used for kitchens in the US, quartz shares its dominating position on the market with granite only. The pros: stronger stone due to the 7% of polymer resins, ensuring its non-porous and almost 100% bacteria-free surface; the slope is customizable – you can choose the pattern you like, evidentiate some parts of the stone crumb and hide others; easy to maintain – unlike granite or marble – quartz countertops require just basic cleaning and have a non-porous surface, making it impossible for bacteria to survive for a long time.
