We encourage you to visit our indoor Slab yard Gallery that is the largest indoor climate controlled slab yard Gallery in the North East Pennsylvania, Bring along samples of your cabinets, tile and any other helpful interior pieces that will help you select the stone for your home. During your visit to our Slabs gallery You may pick your own slab(s) from hundreds of full slabs selection of granite colors in stock. We will provide you with samples of granite or marble to take home to make your selection easier.
Once you have decided to stone selection, you will need to sign a contract. The contract shows in detail the aspects of your kitchen project (color, edge, sink, cook-top, backsplash, etc). A 50% deposit is required in order for your material to be ordered/released and to give you date of template.
The final price will be calculated based on the measurements taken on the job-site.
Layout: Stones with significant veining, color variation, or movement require conscious positioning of the pieces on the slabs to maximize the beauty of the finished product. We plan the cuts to protect the stone’s natural beauty and its structural integrity, and to take best advantage of natural patterns. We always minimize seams after considering slab size, site conditions, etc. If the stone’s color pattern or grain is not consistent, we recommend that you come down to our yard so that you can select the slabs and the specific parts of them which will be used for the counter surface. At this point we need your “OK” to fabricate the counter. It usually takes us 3 to 5 business days to fabricate and install the project after the final price is confirmed.
