As a homeowner, you probably know that a granite countertop installation is a long-term investment for your home. It’s likely that you haven’t gone through the process before, so as a reliable kitchen cabinet refacing expert, we’re sharing a few important details on what’s expected during the whole process. Here’s what you need to look out for.
When You’re Getting Ready for the Installation
Make sure that there’s a clear pathway from where the contractors will be entering your home to where the kitchen countertop will be installed. This means removing any potential tripping hazards as well as having your pets and kids occupying a safe place at home. Granite is heavy, so your new countertop will be brought in piece by piece for better ease of installation. They’ll also check the area and pathway before they bring the pieces in, so that they’ll figure out how to safely maneuver through the job site and that your countertop will be brought in safely.
Make sure that your custom kitchen cabinets are level and secure. This ensures your granite countertop will be installed smoothly. If you’re installing at a new construction site, you can request the other artisans who are working near the installation area to temporarily stop what they’re doing, at least until all the pieces of the countertop are installed.
During the Installation Process
Right before the installation starts, ask any questions about how it will be installed. Your hired contractor will be able to explain how it will be done. Once the process starts, it’s best to leave them uninterrupted so it can be installed efficiently. As a precautionary measure, the hole for a cooktop will be cut onsite. This can create dust, so try to cover any nearby furniture to protect them from the dust.
