Granite is the other durable
and expensive countertop option used for
the countertop in kitchens and bathrooms.
Like solid surface material, granite stone
is cut and polished. It demands lot of
accuracy and coordination to measure and
make the templates correctly. It is the
hardest material used for countertop and
it is an expensive countertop. The granite
countertop will add beauty and pleasant
feel which cannot felt in other countertop.
The major cost of the granite countertop
is the labor cost. The installation must
be performed with the proper professionals
and experts who posses training and equipment.
Installation should be done properly,
so that money on the installation can
be saved. When granite countertop work
has been started, the other range tops,
sinks and old countertops should be removed.
Every process of the installation must
be left to the hands of the professionals
Before starting the installation work,
the metal rods and ply woods will be added
to the surface to create the strong level
for the sink. The main accomplishment
of the installation of the granite countertop
includes the varying thickness of the
slab. It should be noted that leveling
of the slab is the main task required
to protect and prepare the stone. Later
the installer will measure the slab and
attention should be made while carrying
the slab to reduce the stress on the slab.
If installation process is not carried
out properly, then later the slab will
crack at the time of regular use.
Granite slab will be cut with the diamond
saw to fit the templates. Any items can
be installed by the installer such as
metallic material or separate indication
of solid color. To give a smooth and attractive
finish on the surface, any penetrating
sealer can be applied by the installer.
While installation, the installer has
to take care of the electrical outlets,
sinks, and thickness of the granite process
for re-installation of the item.
