The Fabrication Process
We include you in each step of our process, including fabrication. We ask that you create a template, give final approval, disconnect plumbing, and remove old countertops.
Once you have selected your new countertop material, received your free estimate for our work, and welcomed our laser template technician to your home or workplace to take exact measurements, we are ready to begin fabricating your beautiful new countertop!
After having specialized in countertop creation for nearly two decades, the Gallery 77 team has mastered every nuanced step to fabricating an attractive and long-lasting countertop. Our CNC machinery is top-of-the-line and able to yield a countertop of virtually any size, which will fit perfectly in its new home. We believe that work as important as ours demands no less than absolute precision!
We also depend on our customer’s help to fabricate their ideal countertop. To be certain, your involvement in the fabrication process is minimal at most, though we do require a few things so we may ensure your countertop and its installation will both be flawless.
Here is all we ask you to do!
Create a Template
We require a detailed template or set of blueprints before we begin cutting stone. You may create either of these with our aid or that of a third party.
We cannot commence fabrication without a template that includes a few vital details. These include the exact dimensions of all features that require holes or cutouts including stovetops, sinks, and faucets. These same features’ exact locations, as well as assurance they will fit within cabinet openings, are also required. Please note that access to the installation site may prescribe certain size and weight limitations on the countertops we’re able to fabricate.
Give Final Approval
Before fabrication commences, we ask that you review and give final approval for your new countertop’s material for color, grain, and layout. We are happy to fabricate your countertop should you choose to forego final approval, but we would rather be absolutely certain we are creating your ideal new surface.
Disconnect Plumbing and Remove Old Countertops
To prevent damage to your home and its appliances, we require all plumbing to be temporarily disconnected within the room in which we’re installing a countertop. Any countertops we will be replacing must be removed prior to installation as well.
WHY GALLERY 77
Our experienced staff will work with you and your interior designer, builder or contractor, to create original designs that reflect your personal style.
Tile is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal, or even glass, generally used for covering roofs, floors, walls, showers, or other objects such as tabletops. Tiling stone is typically marble, onyx, granite, or slate.
Natural Stone refers to products quarried from the earth, used over thousands of years as building materials and decorative enhancements. These products include Granite, Marble, Limestone, Travertine, Slate, Quartzite, Sandstone, Adoquin, Onyx, and others.
Unlike natural stone countertops cut from pure granite, marble, or sandstone, engineered stone counters are made from quartz crystals held together with a resin binder. They have a similar appearance to natural stone, but they possess benefits not available with natural materials.
