The Process

1. Material Selection

There are many natural stone distributors in Portland with beautifully staged areas where full slabs can be viewed. You can see many species of stone and specifically select the material to be utilized. From there we take your choice and fabricate it to your specifications.

 

2. Site Visit – Field Measurement

When your project is ready, an experienced field technician will visit your job site, review the specific details of your project and collect dimensions for production. During this site visit, we will review and verify that all details have been determined, such as seam placement, sink location and cooktop layouts. Also, any questions may be addressed during this visit.

3. The Slab Layout

After field dimensions are collected, slabs are delivered, and the slab layout is completed prior to the project being released to production. We welcome our customers’ participation in their slab layout to direct our team in capturing the preferred character or color for focal area countertops.

 

4. The Slab Is Processed

After the project and all information is documented, our fabrication team will review the project details and custom fabricate the slab in our shop.

Saw Cutting Slab
Project pieces and all fixture cutouts will be created on our proprietary stone industry gantry saw and water jet
Edging
Our team utilizes a multi-step process with profiling edger equipment that utilizes diamond grinding and polishing and hand held polishing tooling to ensure the finished product is smooth and consistent
Sealing
For natural stone materials – we will apply a high quality industry specific impregnator to coat the pores of natural stone to protect from staining.

5. Project Installation

First, we will place, secure and level all tops. Then, we will finish any seams. Next, we will mount the sink and secure to the stone. Finally, we caulk all sinks and backsplashes with non-sanded caulking.
