Custom stone fabrication enhances a home or business in many ways.

Custom stone fabrication enhances a home or business in many ways. In a residential setting, custom stone fabrication changes a home’s entire ambiance for the better while increasing its marketability. Also, customers or clients might be more inclined to step into an establishment that looks polished and professional in the business world. Millions of online articles (including our blogs) discuss the beauty or value of custom stone fabrication, whether it’s natural or engineered. Now, it’s time to look at the steps of custom stone fabrication when it’s time for us to transform your home or business. 

Custom Stone Fabrication Step 1: Visiting Our Showroom

The best way to determine which natural or engineered stone would be perfect for your home or business is by coming into our showroom to see all the stunning options up close. It doesn’t hurt to view our gallery or search the Internet for inspiration. However, nothing beats an in-person experience. You’ll be able to see numerous colors, materials, and finishes up close and personal. 

Step 2: Measuring the Countertop Space 

This process is quick and straightforward. After you decide on the countertop material, finish, color, and edge, a technician has to come out to the home or business at a scheduled time to measure the designated area for your new countertops. 

Step 3: Getting Your Approval

Before a technician remodels any space in your home or business, they’ll draw up a plan for your review and approval. The countertop size and materials are the leading factors in pricing. During this step, a technician can quote a price, and if the price is within your budget, a technician can begin the design process. Otherwise, you can discuss what other options might be more affordable. 

Step 4: Cutting the Stone 

We have cutting-edge technology used for cutting, honing, and polishing the stone precisely. For example, our technicians utilize laser-guided, water-cooled diamond bit saw. Our team also uses Slabsmith digital templating software to ensure accurate designs. Whatever your specifications are, we can take care of even the most complex designs. 

Step 5: The Installation Process 

Finally, the technician will return to your home or business and install your new and beautiful countertops or other custom surfaces (such as conference tables or fireplace surrounds). For homeowners, before the installation process, you indeed want to prepare yourself by figuring out how to not use your kitchen for a few days. That could mean ordering out, going out to eat, or buying microwavable food. It could also mean that you have to make use of makeshift or alternative spaces and remove objects such as coffee makers and toasters.
