To prevent your granite countertop from cracking or even worse breaking you must prepare. When planning your install, dealing with your local stone fabricator is very important. Granite is a lot of weight, really hard to move around and must be cut with special tools. Although granite is durable and hard if not handled correctly it can get damaged.
There isn’t much to be done about a broken slab of granite so make sure to work very closely with your granite supplier or the company that is installing if your not doing it yourself.
So the first and most obvious step is deciding what type of counter top you want whether it’s quartz, granite or marble your stone supplier should have many samples and slabs to view. Take a good look up close to see all the different types of patterns and colors. Some places like arizona tile will give you a good sized box to take home and try out different samples at home.
After you choose your countertop you need to decide on what type of edge to use including bull nose, square, bevel and more. Even if you are installing yourself you may want the supplier to stop by and see if there is anything else that might get in the way when installing the granite countertop.
Once you figure out the lenght the edging the next step is to pick out your back splash. Need a pro to hire? Go to temecula granite countertops for estimate.
