The process of getting a quote, selecting your material and having your new countertop installed:1) Getting a Quote:
- a. Sketch a rough diagram of your kitchen layout. Using a measuring tape, measure in inches all around the parameter of the countertop or any surface that you would like to get a quote on.
b. Indicate the approximate location of any required cut-outs for undermount or drop-in sinks, drop-in cooktops, etc.
c. Also, indicate where your walls are and where your open edges will be. (Keep in mind that you also have the option of putting backsplash where your walls are.)
2. Stone Selection:
- a. Granite: A natural stone that comes in many colours and patterns, granite is a very dense stone offering high durability. Its affordability & natural beauty make it’s an ideal choice for Kitchen and even outdoor BBQ countertops.
b. Marble: A unique stone that usually comes in earth tones, offers a warmth that cannot be matched with any other stones. Although not recommended for usage in kitchens, it is very popular in bathroom vanity tops, coffee tables, and fireplace surrounds. Marble is as affordable as granite, but will require constant maintenance, as it stains easily due to its porosity.
c. Quartz: If you are looking for low maintenance and exceptional quality, Quartz might be a better choice your counter surface. It is a man-made material that is non-porous, scratch resistant and highly resistant to stains. It does not need extra sealing and is almost maintenance free. More ideal for indoor usage, Quartz outperforms Granite and Marble when it comes to strength and resilience.
3. Choosing the Edging Profile:
- Choose an edging profile that would best fit your decor. Edgings can be clean and modern or slightly more detailed and classic.
