Granite Countertop Installation: Our Process
After over 20 years of catering to our clients’ needs, we’ve developed this special 4-step granite installation process:
1. Estimating and Choosing Your Granite
Bring a rough sketch of your kitchen to our facility. Or take pictures of your kitchen and send it to us via email, text, or WhatsApp. With either your sketch or pictures, we’ll calculate the square footage of your project. We’ll use that measurement to estimate the price of your countertop project.
When you visit your facility, you will see large slabs of granites, quartz, marble, quartzites, dolomites, and soapstone. This means you can pick your stone and your color from a true representation of the stone, rather than a small sample.
2. Measuring Your Granite Countertops
We send our own Measure Technician (also called a Templator) to your home to digitally measure your countertops. At this point, you’ll make a small, refundable deposit to hold your stone and schedule a template date.
You may have questions that can only be answered in your home. We’ll send our experienced Measure Technician to do a Quote Measure and answer any of your questions.
After the Quote Measure, you’ll come back to our showroom to pick your stone and get the final price from one of our Countertop Designers.
3. Approval Process (Layout)
You’ll love this step. This is where you come to our showroom to pick the best areas of the stone for specific parts of the kitchen. This means you can see exactly where the granite veins and spots will go in your kitchen or bathroom.
We send our professional installers to install your granite countertops. This happens about 1 week after the Approval Process. We only hire quality people and train them to be the best installers in the industry. Remember, there are no middlemen when you come to Granite America.
We Tailor Our Granite Installation Process to Your Needs:
New Home Construction
We are open to working with any new builder or contractor. In 90% of all new home construction, the builder will tell you to buy your own countertops and give you an allowance. We work with your home builder, designer, and cabinet maker to provide you with your dream kitchen and bathroom. If there is a special design or special cut that needs to be made, we can do so at the time of the templating.
Waiting on New Cabinet Delivery
To make perfect pieces, we measure your granite countertops after your cabinets are installed. If you are getting new cabinets, you can give us the drawing with measurements. But we will send a templator when all cabinets are installed.
Working Family – Not Available to Visit During the Daytime
Many of our clients are busy during weekdays. They have no time to come into our office... or simply need a late appointment.
We help you by doing what we can over email and telephone. You tell us what kind of stone you’re looking for and we’ll email you a few choices that match your description. We can then do our Layout step on Saturdays or after hours. That’s when you will finalize your stone, sink, edging, and pick where you want the pieces cut from your slab.
Don’t Live in the Town Where the Remodel is Happening
You live in Texas but want granite fabricated and installed in your lakehouse just outside of Lexington, KY?
Again, we’ll use email to make many of the necessary decisions.
Need an Ultra-fast Turnaround?
Many of our customers need an ultra-fast turnaround for parties, gifts, insurance, or some other situation. For a fee, we provide this service. We’ll install your granite countertop with a very quick turnaround to meet your timeline.
