Stone City has developed start to finish
procedures for templating and fabrication finished granite coutertops that has
evolved into a precise operation for granite processing. Stone City
consistently strives to mass produce a custom product at an affordable rate.
Granite processing takes an incredible amount of attention to an equally
numerous array of details. Stone City has consolidated these numerous details
together using a series of six steps.

Stone City will come to your home or
project, measure, create a drawing and quote your granite countertops project
2. Select Granite Color
Choosing natural stone for countertops,as
simple as it may seem, has several considerations to keep in mind. Some granite
colors have limited variation and are able to be selected from smaller granite
samples. Others need to be viewed fully because of slight or extreme shade
variations within the granite slab. Stone city will try to match slabs to
samples as careful as possible .
3, Choose Edge and Sink
The selection of the edge will help
determine the proper overhang to give your granite countertops. Granite slabs
are approximately 107''-129'' long and 55''-75'' high by 1 1/4'' thick. Granite
countertop parts that are bigger than this must be seamed. The average kitchen
countertop has one or more seam. For edge and sink, click " Accessories".
Make a template of the dimensions, angles
and openings in your old countertop. Built from template plastic strips laid
along the countertop perimeter and glued together, the template will include
notations about edge profiles and sink styles.
Trace the template cutline onto the
granite. Stone city excises the exact countertop shape with a saw equipped with
a water-cooled diamond-tipped blade and then grinds and polishes the edges to
achieve the desired finish before installing the granite countertop.
