Whether it’s new construction or a remodel, starting a new project can be quite daunting! Stoneworks is here to help alleviate unnecessary stress related to your countertops; below is a brief outline of our process to assist.
Conceptual Phase*Choose what you’d like to be your focal point; if it’s countertops, start researching what material you’re interested in (granite/quartz are the most popular) and find pictures of kitchens, bathrooms, etc. that are appealing to you.
Design Phase*Know your product; if you’re redesigning and purchasing new cabinets, things such as unnecessary seams and additional slabs can be avoided by understanding what you need. For example, most quartz slabs are 120x55 (with some exceptions) so try to keep your Island smaller than that to avoid a large seam in your beautiful centerpiece.
Bid Phase*To figure a bid, we need customer information, plans as well as what material you’re interested in. If you know other details such as which sinks you’d like (self rimming or under-mount), edge details and if you’d like stone backsplash, that will help make your bid more accurate.
Contract Phase*Once all details are finalized such as material selection, edge details, etc, we’ll create a contract reflecting the previous pricing discussed. We require a signed copy of the contract as well as 50% deposit. Once received, your information will be passed along to our scheduler to figure template and install dates.
Template Phase*How exciting! You’ve made it so far and soon you’ll have beautiful new countertops to stare at all time of the day (and night if you like ;). Our specialist will visit your home and take exact measurements of your countertops to fabricate off.
Install Phase*You’re finally here! Along come your brand new, breathtaking countertops! Our installers will place and fit your countertops accordingly- keep in mind this is construction so sometimes it can get a little messy; bear through this part until the end!
Note: It’s very important to understand the product you’re getting whether it’s granite- natural stone so pitting can be common, or quartz- keep hot items such as hot pans of the surface, and even marble- soft stone therefore very easy to stain and etch. More information can be provided by our granite specialist; don’t be afraid to ask questions!
