The process of fabrication begins with a slab that has been cut and ends with a fully ready-to-polish piece of stone.
We lay out the slab you have selected and use guides to help us to access the most attractive parts of the slab for each area that will be fabricated. We make the most of every piece of stone so it is essential that we take the time to do this the right way before we cut. We lay out all the diagrams on the slab before we make the first cut.
Our equipment makes the cutting process a breeze so we maximize the value to our customers for their budgets. The cutting is just a minor part of the process.
Before a polish is put on your new slabs of finished stone we use a router to create the desired edge. These edges vary from a 90-degree edge to a bull nosed edge, which is rounded. There are various styles of edges and each requires a level of skill different than the others. The chosen edge will impact the total cost of your finished piece.
After the edge has been created we use a series of buffing pads to grind out the newly cut edge, matching it to the main surface. Our expert crew has years of experience making these slabs of stone look uniform and beautiful. Our job is to bring out the beauty that is within every slab of stone whether it is engineered quartz or natural marble and granite.
Prefabricated Countertops and Stone Remnants
While we are experts in designing and fabricating beautiful natural stone and quartz countertops, we also offer prefabricated and remnant options. This allows you to have access to the same superior quality materials, but at a fraction of the cost. If a custom fabricated natural or engineered stone countertop is outside your budget, talk to Sunset Granite about prefab or stone remnants. You might be surprised to discover the perfect stone piece for your kitchen or bathroom was just waiting to be found.
