Stone Fabrication & Countertop Fabricating Process
1. All stone material fabricated for countertops will be cut in rectangular or square pieces. Seam location is decided by slab size, individual characteristics of a material, structural support and installation safety issues. Granite Top, Inc. always attempts to produce the largest pieces possible within the constraints of these factors, and reserves the right to make the final seam location decision.
2. Backsplash thickness is the same as the countertops being fabricated. Requests for thicker or thinner splashes are considered “special order.” Placement of splash is based upon factors including structural support.
3. For engineered slabs (quartz surfaces) and “consistent” or “no-movement” natural stone, it is not necessary for the customer to select individual slabs or view the template on the stone. Granite Top, Inc. purchases only first choice material and all inventory is inspected for defects. However, customers are encouraged to select slabs that exhibit considerable “movement or “veining” and may make an appointment to view the template on the stone prior to fabrication. Granite Top, Inc. reserves the right to specify how the stone is templated.
