When it comes to granite countertop installs, Calgary Granite Pros undergo a precise process to ensure to deliver you the best service and end-product as possible. We’re available for questions at any time, but to give you an idea of how that process works, we’ve explained how it works.
Obviously, the first step would be the phone call you make to us! Our friendly team will ask the right questions to get an idea of what you are looking for. We will then need measurements and a floor plan of the area you are wanting the granite countertops to be able to provide you a quote. You can just send this to us yourself. This helps us give an estimate of the job. These do not need to be precise for us to provide you a quote (We’ll make sure everything is perfect before the install itself.) We will then go over the estimate, budgets, and timescales with you to make sure everything is acceptable to you before the next step.
Then comes the fun part! You can pick out your stone color. If you want some advice, we will use details like décor and cabinets to give our opinion, but you should always go with what you like best. You can see the stones in person instead of relying on pictures as the colors may not always be an accurate reflection. In addition to the color, you can also choose your edging. From basic shapes to bevels, to steps, and more, adding an edge can make your new counter-tops even more unique. Once you have picked this, we can provide a more detailed quote. If you are happy to proceed, a deposit will be needed so your custom granite counter-tops can be made.
Once approvals have been made, and if renovations are taking place, the cabinets and structures are in place, then one of our installation experts will come out to do a template of the area. This will require sinks to be available on site if possible so we can get an accurate idea of measurements and cuts that will need to be made for them. We will also be able to discuss where seams will go and how the corners will look. We can then provide a layout preview for you to get an idea of how everything will look. This isn’t always a necessary step, but we can discuss what is best for your chosen color of stone when you pick it out.
When we have accurate measurements, fabrication gets to work. Before we get ready to install, we do a bit of quality control on the granite first. We make sure it is completely suitable, accurate in measurement, and ready for installation.
When the day comes for the granite counter top install, Calgary Granite Pros will make sure it’s transported safely to your home. Installation should not take more than a day unless the granite is being put somewhere like a backsplash where an extremely exact measurement is needed. In fact, for an average-sized kitchen, a granite countertop install should not take any more than five hours. This may be longer if we need to remove and dispose of existing countertops. Then we will make sure we have cleaned up after ourselves before leaving you to admire the new worktop!
Calgary Granite Pros will follow-up with you to make sure you are happy with the work and that it is working out for you. If not, we’ll work hard to make sure you are 100% satisfied.
