Getting Clued in on Countertop Installation

Getting Clued in on Countertop Installation

Are you planning on getting new countertops installed soon? If you are, you probably have quite a few questions about the countertop installation process—and we understand. It can seem much more confusing than it actually is when you’re not sure what’s going on. Not only are there strangers in your home creating dust and mayhem in your kitchen, but you’ve been up all night for the past few weeks googling “countertops installation near me,” and you can’t find any results.

WS Granite Tops is here with the answers you need. In this article, you’ll learn what goes into the installation and how to prepare for it so that you can stop feeling clueless about the installation process. We want you to feel like experts by the time you’re done reading!

Installation Prep

It might be obvious, but we’re going to say it anyway: before you put new countertops in, you have to take the old ones out. Since countertop slabs are typically made of extremely heavy material, this is a task that you should leave to the pros. The last thing we want is for you to damage your kitchen or, even worse, injure yourself while doing it on your own.

After we remove your old countertops, we’ll make quick work of dismantling the plumbing and electrical wiring so that nothing gets damaged during the installation process. Don’t worry, we’ll put everything back when we’re done.

A major way you can help us out on installation day is by creating a clear path from the entryway into the installation room. Since the materials we carry tend to be very bulky and weighty, it helps if there are no obstacles in our way—and that includes small children and pets! If you could keep them out of the fray for a few hours, we would greatly appreciate it. We understand that they’re probably curious, but we don’t want anyone getting hurt.

Timing of the Installation

You might wonder how long it takes to install a countertop, but unfortunately we don’t have a firm answer for you on that. Every installation is a bit different depending on the size of the kitchen, the shape of the countertop, and the type of material, so it’s hard to say just how long the installation will take. Anywhere between four and six hours is usually a safe bet, but ask us on installation day, and we’ll be able to give you a more accurate answer.

During Installation

Finally, it’s time to install your new countertop. The installation process is about as straightforward as you might imagine—all we do is set your new countertop slab on top of the bare cabinets, level the slab, and join the seams with epoxy. We know it sounds simple, but it takes expert care and skill to do what we do. And we value our work because it gets you results that you love.

After Installation

After your countertop is installed, we’ll dry it and quality-control check it, and that marks the end of our process. As a final note, we’ll reconnect the electrical wiring and plumbing and answer any questions you may have about your new countertop material, whether those questions surround care and maintenance, longevity, or something completely different. We are here with the answers.
