Installation

Installation

Our process takes from 3-5 business days, from the time we receive your deposit and you have picked out the color of the material.  The installation itself typically takes 2-4 hours.

All of our skilled installers have received certification to guarantee the workmanship on your countertop.

We can remove your old countertops and dispose of them at an additional cost.

If you require this service, ask us to include this as part of your quote.

Pre-Installation Checklist

  • Have sink & faucet.Old countertop removed.  If you contracted the removal with us, please have the plumbing disconnected.
    Items in lower cabinets removed to protect them.
    Have cooktop and downdraft or the slide-in stove on site.
    Schedule plumber to reconnect plumbing the next day after installation.
    Schedule hook-up of stove or gas after installation.

Natural Stone Kitchen & Bath’s standard procedure for under-mount sinks is to have 1/8” to 1/4” overhang on the bowl.  This is called a negative reveal.  Deviation from this standard procedure, if requested by the customer, requires a signed request for custom labor.  Aesthetics, hygiene and engineering factors are the reasons for New Jersey Granite standard negative reveal installation.

If you have cabinets that sit directly on your countertops, for example, appliance garages and bread boxes, these should be on-site but not installed before the template.

The dishwasher must be in place.  Most modern dishwashers can be attached to the cabinetry rather than to the countertop.  Your plumber can take care of that when he hooks up your dishwasher.  If the dishwasher must be mounted onto the countertop, Natural Stone Kitchen & Bath, LLC will attach it for you.
