If you’ve never had a countertop installed before, the thought can be pretty intimidating. After all, your kitchen is getting an overhaul, and you’ve got strangers inside your home doing the work. To many, that doesn’t sound very enticing.
But at Affordable Quality Marble & Granite, we find that people feel a lot more comfortable with countertop installation if they know what to expect. You can spend all the time in the world googling “countertops installation near me,” but most articles won’t give you the information that you’re looking for.
We’re here to clear up the uncertainty that surrounds this process and do what we do best: help our customers feel not only at ease, but excited about countertop installation and how it can change the face of your home.
When you’re preparing for a countertop installation, the first task to consider is removing your old countertops. After all, your new slab needs a place to sit! Since most countertop materials are very heavy, we recommend leaving this job to the professionals who can handle it correctly. We don’t want you to damage any parts of your home, or worse, injure yourself in the process.
Before we install, we’ll also take the time to disconnect the electrical wiring and plumbing in your kitchen to avoid injury or damage. Don’t worry—we’ll reconnect everything once the job is complete.
A major favor that you can do for us is to clear a path from the entryway to the installation room. As we said, countertops are very heavy materials, so if our team has a straight shot with no obstacles in and out of the house, the process will go much more smoothly.
We don’t blame you for wanting your countertop installation to go as quickly as possible—it’s a very exciting time, and you’re antsy to see the final product! But while we can promise efficiency, we also promise a thorough job every time, which means that the installation doesn’t happen in the blink of an eye.
Depending on factors like your countertop material, the shape and size of your kitchen, your countertop design, the accessibility to the room, and how difficult it is to remove the old countertop, your installation could take anywhere between three and eight hours. We can give you a more accurate estimation once we get to know your project.
Before we arrive at the site, we cut the countertop at our shop—including any cutouts for sinks or cooktops that are needed. We’ll also craft any custom edges before we head out. Once we arrive at your home, we will set the new countertop on the bare counters, level and secure the slabs, then join the seams with epoxy.
For an installation to be complete, our team will have placed, sealed, leveled, dried, and quality-control checked the countertop. After all of these boxes are ticked, we’ll reconnect your plumbing and electrical, then answer any questions you might have about your home’s new addition.
