Purchase to Production
Innovate Stones will need a layout of your kitchen. Customer will select the slab at our beautifull showroom and warehouse.Once we have received your deposit, your countertop project goes through the production steps of template and measurement, fabrication, tear out and installation.
Template and Measurement
Template and measurement usually takes from 10 minutes to a couple of hours. In the template we will either measure your cabinets (Usually for straight pieces) Or we make a pattern of your cabinets out of 2 1/2" strips of wood. During this phase:
All sinks/cooktops/faucets are checked for compatibility and fit therefore all such units must be on-site at template.
Overhang, general support and any personal preferences are discussed.
Seams: minimum seams or no seams or specific seam placement will affect final price.
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 24 hours. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your plumber to reconnect the water and drain. Also, cooktops and faucets, etc.
Below is a list of information we will ask for prior to the production process. We prefer to obtain all of this information/material at time of template.
Sinks: We will bring undermount sinks back to the shop.
Cooktop cutout dimensions
If your project requires that we tear out and remove your existing countertops, we will do so at time of installation. A fee may apply of $450
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. Granite is sealed at time of installation.
Your inspection of the finished job is very important. The lead installer will review the installation with you, answer any questions you may have and ask for payment of the final balance due for your project. The final payment must be in the form of Cash,check,credit card or Certified Check.
