Preparing to Install

Your new countertops will need a place to sit. That means the old ones have run their course, and it’s time for them to head out. We’ll take care of this part because countertop materials are typically very heavy. We’ll remove your old countertops, careful not to damage any parts of your home, and create a spot for the new ones to rest.

If you’re wondering how you can help during this stage, we always appreciate keeping pets and children out of the fray. The installation area isn’t the safest for them, and we want to make sure no one gets injured throughout the day.

Clearing a path from the entrance of your home to the installation room is also a big help!


We get this question a lot—and we totally understand. Getting a new countertop is an exciting thing, and we want you to enjoy the result as soon as possible too! But the fact of the matter is, we don’t have one set answer for how long a countertop installation takes.

The duration of the process depends on the type of countertop we remove, the type of countertop you’re installing, the shape of your kitchen, and accessibility of the room where the new countertop is going.


We do some work on your countertop before it arrives on site. For example, at our shop we will cut your slab into your desired shape and cut holes for the cooktop and sink. We’ll also create custom edges before we show up at your house.

When we do arrive, our installation process includes setting the new countertops on the bare countertops, leveling the slabs, and joining the seams with epoxy.


For the installation to qualify as complete, our team will have placed, sealed, leveled, dried, and quality-control checked the countertop. Finally, your new surface is in place and ready to go.
