Our Process

The Granite Company Process

1. It all starts with a drawing. It doesn't have to be fancy or exact down to the quarter inch, just enough for us to figure out how much material we need for your project.

 

2. Bring the drawing in to our beautiful showroom and give it to one of our tremendous sales staff. They will be more than happy to do an estimate for you. They will ask you questions about your project including edge details, backsplash, sinks and faucets.

 

3. Now the fun part! While they figure your estimate, you get to walk the lot and check out all that is available to you. Granite comes in a variety of colors and patterns. You will be blown away by all the options available.We normally have around 500 full slabs of granite in our inventory!

 

4. Your salesperson will go over your estimate with you and explain the cost of your project based on the granite (or other material) you have selected. There are different price levels based on the rarity of the stone.

 

5. When you are ready to move forward with your project we require a 50% deposit. This holds your material and places you on our schedule for templating and installation. Time frames vary for this throughout the year. We do our very best to complete your project in a timely fashion.

 

6. Before your templating date arrives you will need to remove your existing countertops and have your plumbing disconnected. The Granite Company can remove your countertops for you for a nominal charge if you are unable to do so. Sinks and faucets MUST be on site for templating if not purchased from The Granite Company. Locations of these items are critical and if not on site may delay your project.

7. If you have selected a stone that has a significant pattern, you may come in the morning after your template date to do a "layout". Your stone will be in our fabrication shop and your templates can be placed right on them to determine how it will look in your home. **Please let your salesperson or the templator know that you want to do this as our shop needs to be ready for you.

 

8. Your material is fabricated to your specifications and we return to your home, usually one week after your template, to install your new countertops!

 

9. Plumbing needs to be reconnected. Please remember that The Granite Company does not do any plumbing. We can recommend licensed plumbers if you do not have one.

 

10. You are finished and can enjoy your completed project for years to come! Depending on your material selection, future maintenance, such as resealing, may be required. Our staff will explain countertop maintenance to you and you will also find it on this website.
