What is the process of getting an estimate for a project?

The process:

  • Explore your local natural stone slab suppliers
  • Choose a material, or materials (ask for samples)
  • Choose an edge profile
  • Choose a fabricator (or a few) to send your drawing to get an estimate

Don’t forget to include:

  • Drawing of area you’d like in stone
  • What kind of stone & the suppliers name you found it
  • Which Edge profile you like (Square/Eased or Round/Bullnose etc)
  • Indicate which edges need to be finished
  • Whether you want an under-mount or top-mount sink
  • If you’d like backsplash, make sure to include the material, size & pattern
  • Contact info: Phone, email & job address

Did you know: Its your choice who you use for fabrication. Most of the time your contractor/designer will have their preference. But ultimately the choice is yours.

Did you know: If you’ve found the perfect slab, but its a different finish than you wanted. YOU CAN HAVE IT CHANGED! Normally it starts at about $7 per sq/ft, depending on the material and the finish.

Did you know: That you can also change the thickness. Choices on this alteration are a bit limited. If you find a 3cm (1-1/4″) and want it 2cm (3/4″) or 1cm (3/8″) that can be done as well.

Did you know: You can also cut your slab into tile (any size). This is a good option if you wanted to match your back splash to your counter. You don’t have to cut the whole slab up, just as much as you need.
