New Countertop Preparation
When beginning a home renovation project that involves replacing countertops, it is important to have a plan in place. This makes for less delays, and a more seamless and stress free counter installation. Below are some tips for ensuring your counter installation goes smoothly.
Choose your stone slab at least a month in advance: If you wait too long to choose your slab, it can result in extra expenses or cause delays for your project. As soon as your kitchen or other countertop project is designed, you should use these plans to pick out your countertops. This will give you an estimate of how much your project will cost, as well as schedule the installation process.
Countertop Material: There are many different materials that make for a great countertop. Our team at All Stone specializes in Granite, Quartz, Quartzite, and Marble. If you need help deciding, a member of our team can come to your home to help walk you through the decision making based on your budget, other materials, and color scheme.
Use home design sites only for ideas: With the plethora of home design sites (i.e. Pinterest) and DIY TV shows (i.e. HGTV) it is important to remember that all natural stone is different, as is your kitchen design. These places are great for design ideas, but don't get tunnel vision. When selecting your finishes, you need materials that fit your aesthetic.
Install sinks, plumbing, wiring, etc. before your countertop: It is important that all appliances, sinks, plumbing, and wiring be done prior to your counter being installed. This should be done to prevent any delays or unnecessary trips for materials. It will also ensure that everything is aligned properly.
