Our homes are where we spend so much of our time. They are where we find rest, where friends and family come together and so many other precious life moments take place. And with the immense value our houses provide, it’s no surprise that many of us are passionate about personalizing our homes to best meet our style and needs.
So, if you’re looking to enhance your home’s aesthetics and functionality with high-end stone countertops, here are five tips for choosing a reputable countertop fabricator.
Wide Product Selection
Look for a fabricator that offers a wide selection of established brands for customers to choose from. This helps ensure high-quality and gives you a larger selection of stone material (e.g., quartz, granite or marble). At Delsur Marble, our showroom has the latest stone styles on display for you to see and feel–so you’re not deciding what’s right for your home based off something you’re seeing on a website. We carry Caesarstone, Silestone, Vicostone, Quartex Surfaces, Hanstone and Corian to name a few.
With all major decisions, you will have questions along the way. And with such a large investment in your home, it’s important to work with a company that takes your opinions and thoughts seriously. Professional countertop fabricators should provide a detailed explanation of the entire process and be willing to answer all questions you have along the way.
Beware of companies trying to upsell certain aspects countertop. For example, some fabricators may try to offer you countertops at a low cost per square foot and then upcharge you on sink and cooktop cutouts, edge profiles and granite sealers.
Handle Fabrication & Installation
When choosing a countertop company, make sure they handle the entire process (both fabrication and installation). This makes the process much smoother for you, as you won’t have to deal with one company to have your countertop fabricated and another company for the installation. At Delsur Marble, we handle the entire process from templating, to fabrication and installation. We supply sinks, faucets and accessories as well from Castle Bay, Blanco, Artisan, Torenfonder and many more.
References and Customer Testimonials
References and customer testimonials are great for getting a sense of a company’s proficiency with providing excellent customer service and a superior end product. To see what others, have to say about a countertop company, check their Google reviews or even their social media pages. Many countertop companies have Facebook pages where customers will leave reviews on the work they’ve provided. Furthermore, social media is great for seeing examples of past jobs the company has done to get a sense of their craftmanship. Visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/delsurmarbleinc/
