The template and slab layout is the second most important part of the process after the template creation as it is the point at which we meet to finalize the scope of the work involving your custom countertops; this meeting is especially important if your selected slab(s) has a varied color, pattern or a lot of movement in it. After the template(s) are brought back to our shop, we will ask you to meet with us there to give your input during the layout process; this meeting is generally scheduled for the next business day after the slab arrives at our shop. Because the layout determines the final look of your countertops, it is imperative that you give your input before fabrication commences.
