A-Right Get started by selecting materials

Browse over 50 colors of beautiful hand selected stocked granite, marble and quartz.  Our slabs are displayed in a climate controlled showroom/warehouse in our facility in Shawnee, KS.  Price groups help you easily budget your project.

Floor samples and cabinet doors can help select slab colors that compliment your color scheme.  This is a critical part of the process.  If you need a sink, backsplash or help determining an edge profile, our experienced staff can help with the finishing touch.

A-Right Plan to schedule template and install

Scheduling sets the project in motion. Once the scope of the project has been determined, a template appointment can be scheduled.  To avoid delays, it’s important to prepare for template.  For tips and help, we have posted “Preparation – Project Readiness” below.

After the countertops are templated they are drawn in CAD.  Using the slab you have selected, a design of the countertop is overlaid and prepared for production.  At this time it’s appropriate to schedule an install date.

A-Right Countertops are precisely measured

Laser technology is an extremely accurate and efficient process used for precision measurements during countertop templating. It assures fit and makes it easy to review radiuses, seam locations, overhangs and back splashes.

This is the final measurement and must be completed prior to fabrication.  To avoid delays, it’s important that you are fully prepared for templating.  It’s the customer’s responsibility to make sure that this prep-work is complete.  Feel free to review the post below “Preparation – Project Readiness”.

A-Right We begin to make your countertops

After template, our design team produces a drawing through CAD .  The preparation for countertop fabrication begins.

After the layout is complete, the slab moves to the Masterjet Saw.  Next, it moves to the Waterjet (for precision cuts), the CNC router and edging machines for shaping and finally to the polishing station.  This process can take 10 to 15 business days.

A-Right Installed by accredited professionals

A countertop installation can take a few hours to complete.  On occasion, some (on site) custom sizing may be required.  This is to ensure a desired fit.

Once the countertops are installed, our team will seal the surface, clean the area and leave you with beautiful new countertops.  We hope you enjoy!
