Replacing your kitchen countertops with a granite slab is a sound investment for your home’s aesthetic appeal and value, but there are a few things you need to do and consider before you get the process started.
- Sink and faucet – you might want to keep your existing sink and faucets or you can replace them. Either way, you need to ensure that you have your sink on-site before a template is drawn up so that the cut granite slab will fit these items.
- Countertop support – ensure that there will be sufficient support for your granite slab before the actual installation. While your cabinets will provide most of the support, there will be areas where the countertop must be installed around appliances and it is here that the support is lost. Wood blocking should be installed to provide support in areas where there are no cabinets to do so.
- Double check all counter heights before the countertops are installed, because once in place, it would be difficult and costly to make changes. If you aren’t installing custom-made cabinets, it’s best to check the counter height before any installation begins. Having an awkwardly positioned counter will make your kitchen functionality limited and frustrating.
It is always best to have your granite countertops installed by a professional granite fabricator. This ensures a flawless end result.
