5. Fabrication and Installation
If your project requires that we tear out and remove your existing countertops, we will do so at time of installation. We will also disconnect your plumbing at time of tear out, so be sure not to use your dishwasher until your plumber has reconnected the water. During installation, your undermount sink(s), if applicable, will be mounted under your stone. We ask that you do not plumb in or use the sink in any way for at least 10 hours. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your plumber to reconnect the water and drain. Also, cooktops and faucets holes will be cut at the time of the installation.
At installation, we ask that you also clear the work area of any objects and clear a path for the installers to carry the countertops. The installation phase can take several hours; and can require some final cutouts to be made in your home. Please keep in mind that this is a major remodelling job, there may be some residual dust over the next couple of days, be sure to check items left in cabinets. We recommend the drawers be removed. Items under cooktop and sink cabinet must be removed to allow access. Some dust can result even though our installers are equipped to catch the majority of it. All countertops, with the exception of quartz, are sealed at time of installation (if not resin coated).
