Custom Stone Fabrication
1 – Slab Selection
The first step is to select the material that will soon become your new countertop. You are invited to visit our slab yard. Please make an appointment to view your stone.
2 – Free Estimate
The next step is to find out what your needs are. Getting a drawing of the project you are working on can do this. All that is necessary is a blueprint or hand drawing of your kitchen cabinets with dimensions.
3 – Template
Once you have received our quote and we have agreed to do the job, it is now time to template. We will set up a time that is convenient for you to send our laser template technician to make exact measurements for your job.
4 – Fabrication
After we have your measurements and you have selected your stone, your material is brought into the Fabrication facility. Measurements are entered into a computerized system to ensure complete accuracy. The stone and edge profiles are cut according to these measurements.
Custom Stone Fabrication Getting Ready
• Fabrication and installation can not be scheduled until we have all sinks, faucets, cooktops, or any item that requires cutouts, stone is in house and approved by the customer, templates are completed, and customer has approved cutting layout and confirmed edge detail.
• Prior to template and installation all existing plumbing to be disconnected and current countertops removed.
• Prior to fabrication, the customer should review and approve stone for color, grain, and layout at our shop even if it was previously approved at the stone supplier. We will fabricate without this final approval, but customer will be responsible for finished product.

Quartz countertops are the easiest natural stone to take care of. They are engineered using ground stone and resin, so they don’t require regular sealing they way most granite and marble countertops do. This stone is non-porous, so it does not easily stain or etch.

Ceramic and porcelain tile are among the most affordable options and come in a wide range of colors and patterns, including designs that mimic granite and other stone. Natural stone tiles are pricier than ceramic but are much more affordable than slab granite or marble.
