We encourage all our customers to visit our facility as well as the facility of any fabricator they are considering.
We offer Cambria quartz.
We offer twelve edge profiles in 3cm. We know some fabricators have a limited edge offering, and provide thinner material or glue two pieces together to achieve a thicker appearance.
Our normal delivery time – after templating – is approximately 8-10 days. We encourage our customers to verify how long it will takefor their granite to be installed.
We have been in the countertop business since 1970. We have grown due to our reputation for quality, service, and fairness. We suggest our customers investigate the BBB complaints which may have been made against other fabricators they may be considering using.
Our proposal format clearly indicates exactly what we propose to provide and how the prices were calculated. We understand from our customers they often find it difficult obtaining similar information from other fabricators.
We make every effort to minimize the number of seams and to place them where our customers prefer to have them, rather than dictate where we want to place them in order to utilize small pieces of granite.
Our seams are “hard seams” utilizing a high-grade epoxy resin adhesive system rather than simply running a bead of silicone between two pieces.
We discuss bowl cutout reveals with our customers to insure they receive the aesthetic look they desire, rather than simply cutting a hole from a template without explaining to the customer what the final installation will look like.
