Minneapolis Granite provides information on preparing for countertop installation
By: Minneapolis Granite
Minneapolis Granite, a granite fabrication and installation company, has recommendations on what homeowners can do to help prepare their home for the arrival of and installation of new granite counters. As experts in the industry, they have come up with a short list of things to consider.
First, give everything a once over. It is important homeowners ensure they have received everything they were supposed to. When it comes to the countertops, those should be completely taken care of and accounted for by the countertop installation company. But, what about everything else? It is important to make sure every other item for the kitchen or bathroom remodel is in order. For example, new cabinets, sink, faucets and appliances should be ready to install. It is also important they match the new countertops. Has everything been measured out correctly? Homeowners should be sure everything that needs to be installed alongside their granite counters are not only scheduled to be installed on time but are the right color and measurements.
Next, it is important to remove furniture and other items that might be in between the door and the location of the new granite counters to be installed. Taking the time to do so can help make the installation process move along much faster.
It is also important cabinets are finished before installing new granite counters. It can also help to make sure the top drawers of the cabinetry are taken out and put somewhere safe. The lower drawers should be covered with old towels to help ensure the contents remain clean and safe during the installation process. Also, if there is anything fragile lying around the room, it is essential to make sure those are in a safe place as well.
It can also really help if the homeowner is there while the new countertops are being put in. After all, the installers may have some questions while performing the installation.
And, these are just a few things homeowners should keep in mind prior to the installation of their new granite counters.
