FAQ

How can I get a quote?

Our quotes are figured by the project utilizing a rough, measured sketch provided by you. The
sketch doesn’t need to be pretty, it just needs to indicate sizes, walls, appliances, and where you want
the sink placed. You don’t even need to have a color chosen yet as we can provide a quote to you based
on a “Preferred” or higher series of stone and/or quartz. You will see the layout, sizes, rooms itemized,
sinks, etc. in an easy to follow format. Your quote will show detailed information that will reflect the
true price of the project.

Why don’t you provide a square foot price?

Our quotes are figured by the project so when you get our price it will be all inclusive with your template, fabrication, cut outs, edges, installation, and even taxes. Providing all-inclusive quotes gives you the peace of mind to know that you won’t be surprised with a final bill that doesn’t match the approved quote.

What is the difference between granite and quartz?

Granite is mined from the ground, cut in to slabs, and polished to a beautiful luster. Quartz countertop is a man-made material that incorporates small pieces of natural quartz (and occasionally other natural materials like granite) with resin and then poured into a mold and pressed into slabs.

Granite provides a more natural appearance with many color choices and options that allow for a lot of movement and veining or more of a “speckled” look to complement your aesthetic. Because it is a natural stone, there is a level of maintenance that needs to be performed. Once a year it is advised to reseal the surface of your countertops. While this sounds intimidating and time consuming, all that is really required is for you to spray the sealer on your countertop, let it sit for a few minutes, and wipe it off … it’s really that easy. The benefit of using a stone for your countertop, though, is that you can chop your vegetables on it, then take your hot pan off the stove and place it directly on your countertop.

 

Quartz is a man-made material which allows for consistency in color and movement meaning there is little to no variation within each slab or even between slabs. Quartz is easy to maintain and is stain resistant. Because of the resins used in the production of quartz, it is not advised to put hot pans directly on the countertop.

What is the advantage of having a digital shop?

Our templating process is done with a digital laser for exact measurements avoiding the errors associated with stick or manual measurements. A high-resolution picture is taken of the slab and uploaded with the digital template during the programming phase. This allows for exact nesting of two pieces showing veining, patterns, seams and other stone movement so that a seamless look is achieved. All of our stone is cut on a digital water jet saw which ensures complete accuracy, precision and superb use of material. After the stone is cut, it is ready for the CNC machine. Edges are shaped and polished by a set of multiple tools and polishers for a high-quality edge. Seams are also run on the CNC machine to produce an extremely tight seam where manual seams can sometimes leave a larger gap.

Do we provide our own sinks or can we buy our sinks from you?

You can purchase your sink from us. We offer stainless steel and Blanco Silgranit options in 50/50, 60/40, or super single.
