Getting Ready

We’ve all heard the saying before—out with the old and in with the new. This is exactly what has to happen when you’re getting new countertops; the old ones have to move out first.

Since countertops are typically made of a very heavy material, it’s wise to leave this task to the professionals. We have the skills and equipment necessary to get your old countertop slab out of the way so the new one has a place to sit. We don’t want you to hurt yourself by going DIY with this step.

Before installation, we’ll also disconnect all wiring and plumbing from the kitchen in order to create a safe work environment and prevent damage.

A major way that you can help the installation team is by clearing a path from the entryway to the kitchen (or wherever your new countertop is going). Having a walkway with no obstructions ensures that our team can get in and out safely, especially when carrying large stone slabs. It’s also safest for everyone if children and pets are kept out of the work area

The Time It Takes

Every installation is different. If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that much. Because of that, there’s no single answer to the question of how long your countertop installation will take. We understand that it’s an exciting time, though, so we’ll make sure to get your project done as efficiently as possible! All the while remaining thorough, of course.

The duration of the project depends on a few factors, including the countertop material you’ve chosen, the shape and size of your kitchen, your countertop design, accessibility to the room, and how difficult it is to remove the old countertop.

The Installation

Before our team arrives, we do the work cutting your countertop slab and making any necessary holes for the sink and cooktop. In our shop, custom edges are crafted. When it reaches your home, we will set the new countertop on your bare cabinets, level and secure the slab, then join the seams with epoxy.


After those steps are done, your project is finally finished. Our team is proud of the work we do, and because of that, your satisfaction is guaranteed. A finished project includes a countertop that is placed, sealed, leveled, dried, and quality-control checked.

Once all those boxes are checked, the team will reconnect the wiring and the plumbing to get your kitchen back in working order. They’ll stick around to answer any questions you may have, then leave you to enjoy your new countertop!
