Templates

A template and fitting service is provided by us for your convenience. Dates for templates would be arranged by us at the time of your order confirmation. Experience template techs visit your project and confirm the details of your projects. All supporting structures should be secured in their final place(s). Sinks, faucets and appliances are requested onsite, prior to your template appointment. Avoiding these requirements could delay your installation.

Fabrication

Granite fabrication is a specialized trade that requires extensive training and practice in order to produce high-quality results - not to mention the expensive diamond tooling and equipment. The slab of granite will be precisely cut with a diamond tip saw to fit the templates. Our fabricators and installers have many years of training and experience. Safe handling is another concern that you need not worry about when purchasing from Five Star Granite & Marble. When working with solid surfaces, small errors can be VERY costly - you can easily exceed the cost of our installed prices with just one small mistake. We guarantee professional results from the initial design through fabrication and final installation.

Installation

Upon completion of fabrication, our crew will return to install your countertops and/or solid surfaces. The expertise required for installing granite countertops requires that this be one job left to the professional, Five Star Granite & Marble. Our team notes positioning of electrical outlets, sinks, faucets, as the thickness of the granite may alter some of the process for re-installation of these items. Installers make adjustments for setting a cook top and re-securing the dishwasher stabilizer brackets without causing harm to the newly laid granite countertop. If applicable, all jointing seams are polished and the edge will be treated to create a smooth, attractive perimeter. Our crew will apply a penetrating sealer and polish the surface to a smooth reflective finish.

Our routine Final Inspections ensures your satisfaction. When properly installed, granite countertops are a beautiful and valuable addition to any home kitchen.
