Pre Installation Preparation

How do you prepare for stone countertop installation? First, you need to measure your room’s dimensions to allow a fabricator to fit the stone into the right place. The installer also needs to establish the model and design of your faucets, sinks, and appliances.

Next, find the design details for rear wall treatments, edge details, and backsplashes. Note that the designs should match your house style and décor. Once the template gets approved, the installer will cut the stone to make a countertop that fits your space.

During Stone Countertop Installation 

Once you order your stone countertop, an installer(s) will deliver it to your doorstep for installation. The number of people required to do the job depends on the size of the job. If the work is extensive, you may need to hire more installers to do the job.

On the installation day, you have to clear the path for the procedure. First, remove all the valuable items on the way and the counter. Also, don’t let your pet roam freely in the work area. You may also want to cover the furniture around to protect them from dust.

Post Installation Finishes

After installing the stone countertop, it’s time to put everything back to order. Consider scheduling an appointment with a plumber to reconnect the water pipes. An electrician will also be of great help to reconnect electrical hookups.

If you plan to install a backsplash in your kitchen countertop, you need to schedule it after installing the stone countertop. It’s also essential to clean up the work area after the installation process. Thankfully, some installers will do the clean-up for you.
