COUNTERTOP MEASURMENT AND INSTALLATION GUIDE

MAKE SURE THERE WILL BE A RESPONSIBLE PARTY AT THE JOB SITE ON THE DAY OF MEASURMENTS AND INSTALLATION TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND SIGN A JOB APPROVAL FORM. OTHERWISE GRANITEX WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DISCREPANCIES.

PRIOR MEASURMENTS:

  • All cabinets must be installed
  • All fillers must be installed
  • Existing countertops must be cleared
  • FAUCET
    • Have all faucet available the day of measurements
    • Ideally have soap dispenser available
    • SINK, COOK-TOP, SLIDE IN RANGE
      • If you have farm sink or cast iron sink; it has to be installed by your contractor prior measurements

Please note: Sink will be always taken by Fabricator

  • Have your cook-top available. He will need to check dimensions
  • Slide in range needs to be in a house or at least have specifications ready

 

IMPORTANT:  During the Field Measure (FM), GRANITEX will measure the site to provide the overhang of approximately 1” to 1 ¼” at all support structures unless otherwise noted during the FM. In the case of kitchen cabinets or other support structures with doors and/or drawers, the edges of the countertops will overhang the door/drawer fronts of the cabinet (or the cabinet itself if no drawer/doors exit) by approximately ¾”  unless otherwise noted during FM. All measurements + or - 1/8”.

INSTALATION DAY:

  • Installation in average takes 2-4 hours
  • Have empty sink base cabinet
  • Make sure that hot/cold water valve works properly, that installers can shut it of
  • Once countertops are installed fabricator will apply sealer on a surface. It needs to be left for a 2-4 hours, after that wiped with soapy water   

        Please note: Because of safety of falling, we are not using any floor protection mats during installation.

 

IMPORTANT:  Stone to stone joints and seams will be approximately 1/16” wide. Seams will be determinate at fabrication at the sole discretion of GRANITEX. Customer understands that seam placement is determined based on usable slab size.
