If you are wondering about what you need to do to prepare for the installation of your natural or engineered stone countertops we have some tips. Following are recommendations to prepare for installation of those beautiful new countertops.
- If we are tearing out your old countertops, you will want to clear all items off and store in an area outside of the new countertop installation area.
- Remove everything from the cabinet bases or cover your pots, pans or small appliances under your existing countertops. While we do everything we can to minimize dust, there will still be a certain amount of dust that will filter down into the base cabinets. We recommend covering those items with a large sheet.
- Clear out all items under the sink base. The installers will need access to the area if a new sink is to be installed. Our installers are not licensed plumbers so while we will hang your new sink, you will need to have a plumber come in to reconnect your water lines and plumbing for the sink.
Your kitchen and bath countertops are impactful, both to your lifestyle and your home’s value. The decision to update your countertops for looks, durability and value are all very good reasons to update. For further confirmation on how granite or quartz countertops increase home value consider having a discussion with a local real estate agent on the topic. Ask how frequently the topic of stone and granite countertops comes up for potential home buyers.
