  • We strongly suggest that you choose your slab(s) in person. We have a large selection of stones to choose from at our showroom/warehouse. For certain colors that we may not have in stock, we can get it from our local distributors.
  • We may provide you with an address of our local granite supplies with whom we have established a relationship with. This will allow you the opportunity to personally see your slab(s) in person.
  • We suggest that before making a final selection on natural stones that you be prepared to accept its earthly beauty along with its natural variance.
  • If you do not see a material you like, you can visit one of our suppliers. You can ask the supplier to reserve a specific slab(s), assuming you find one like, and this will assure that you get exactly what you wanted. Please note, these suppliers will not provide you with material prices, but we will get you the pricing once you made your selection. If the price is agreeable, we will need a deposit so we will contact the supplier to arrange for delivery to our shop.

  • If the customer is providing the sink, the sink needs to be on location so that we may take it back to the shop and use it as a template for the sink cutout.
  • We will give you an exact date when your new countertops will be installed (usually it’s around 5 days after placing a deposit). Also, we will give you a window for the time our crew will arrive on that date. On the day of the installation, we will be able call you to give you a more accurate time of arrival.
  • Schedule a plumber and/or necessary contractor for the next day to completed any other work after the countertop is installed.
