Stonewood strives to make granite installation in your home as smooth and stress-free as possible. It can be done quickly and easily, thanks to our experienced staff. They’ll guide you through the entire process, from the initial estimate, to installation, and everything in between to ensure you’re satisfied with the end product.
Here’s what you can expect when working with Stonewood:
#1 Free Estimate
Please click on our easy to use link below to measure your kitchen, which then helps us give you your free estimate quickly and stress free. If you’re not ready to “do it yourself” then give us a call! We will set up an appointment to come to your home, measure your counters and give you an estimate. Our trained staff always comes prepared to answer any questions you may have.
#2 Accept the Estimate
Once you accept the estimate and are ready to commit to the project, we then require a 50% deposit to reserve or secure your material and schedule the template of your cabinet(s).
Once all cabinets are completely and fully installed, they are ready to have a laser-template taken to ensure a perfect fit for the new countertop. Upon receipt of the deposit and acknowledgement commitment, we will contact you to schedule a date and time to arrange your template.
This process takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 1½ hours depending on the square footage required for your countertops. This phase is critical to the overall production and fabrication of your countertops and our state-of-the-art laser-template will ensure your countertops are produced to your exact specifications. At the time of template, a decision-maker (homeowner or contractor) needs to be present to confirm all countertop shapes, overhang, edge finishes, sink styles, cooktop cuts, and faucet holes, as well as any other cuts that may need to be made like soap dispenser holes and garbage disposal air switches.
The template phase is when all details need to be finalized which is why the cabinets must be fully installed and in their final placement. Once the laser-template is complete, we will download the exact measurements and provide you with a final invoice for your approval.
The computer file generated by the laser-template is then entered into the software that communicates with the CNC machines and your stone is precisely cut to fit your cabinets. After cutting, the stone (granite or quartz) then moves to the fabricator. This step is polishing; your stone now has a permanent shape. This phase is simply for making the cut edges perfectly smooth and giving them shine.
Someone from our friendly and helpful staff will contact you to schedule a time, always at your convenience, for installation of your beautiful new countertops. The only things you need to do for the installation are disconnect the plumbing before we get there and remove everything from your drawers and cabinets as there can be some dust. Our experienced crew will take care of the rest. This includes the removal of existing countertops, placement of the new countertops and sink, sealing of the granite and, of course, clean-up. This process usually takes 2 to 4 hours.
