PROCESS

Fabrication Process

The entire process involves several stages from granite selection up through to the installation stage.

Selection

The first step is to select a stone from our available stock or order a stone from one of our major suppliers. The type of edge or edges will be selected. Both the edge and the type of stone will determine the cost of the project.

Templating

Our trained experts will measure and make an exact template of your kitchen, bath or special project. The template will contain information regarding the location of sinks, seams and edges.

Fabrication

Our fabrication process is broken down into stages. The first involves cutting a slab of granite into the general shapes of the counter top. This stage is followed by CNC machining. The pieces cut from the first stage will be placed in a fully automated machine where edge treatments will be ground from the stone.

Polish

We hand polish all our projects for a perfect shine. Automated machines generaly leave grooves and lines in edges. Our hand polishing techniques avoids this problem for a perfect finish.

Installation

Installation is the final stage of the process. Several members of our team will deliver the granite countertops and we’ll install them on cabinets. We will also install the sink and other necessary hardware. Our installation does however exclude plumbing and electrical work.

Seal

After the installation, our crew seals the granite. This seal is good for a period of one year. The granite will then have to be resealed every year. C&C has added a new option for a 15 Year Sealer! Contact us and ask for more details.
