COUNTERTOPS

Verde Karzan

For Cleaning / maintenance see Quartz vs. Granite page.

Templating:

Customer or representative needs to be at a template to answer any details.

At the time of template, please make sure you have your sink, faucet, cook top and pop up vent at the job site so as not to delay the fabrication of your stone and install date.

Fabrication:

Takes 15-20 working days (Monday -Friday).

Installation usually takes 1 day (about 3-5 hours).

 

*NOTE about edging:

A chiseled edge is unavailable for man-made quartz surfaces.

 

Customer Guidelines Prior to Field Measuring:

  • Remodeled tile or other surfaces must be off of all cabinets where granite is to be installed.
  • Remove all countertop items.
  • New sinks, cook tops, and faucets must be on site prior to field measuring–if they are not available, we will need all the items before we can start the job.
  • Know how many and where you need holes for faucets or fixtures.
  • For new construction, make sure cabinets are fully installed and leveled. Make sure bar top supports are in place.
  • Have cleats (supports) on corner walls where there are no cabinets.
  • Make sure the cabinets are fully installed, leveled, and in place.
