How Stone Becomes A Countertop

Did you ever wonder how large boulders of stone become beautiful, exquisite granite countertops? The process is long and labor-intense, but the end results can truly transform your kitchen and/or bathroom.

The first step in the process involves huge stone quarries turn large blocks into smaller slabs of granite. Prior to polishing, a resin finish is applied to the stone. One side of the slab is then smoothed and polished to bring out the natural colors and variations of the stone. Each slab is then carefully selected for cut, clarity, color, and finish and is imported into the United States.

A.C.T. Services’ granite and marble division is available to assist you as you browse hundreds of granite selections. Once you select your exact granite slab and finish edge desired, we will draw up a formal proposal based on your cabinet design, home plans, or measurements. After a work agreement has been approved and accepted, A.C.T. Services will schedule a final measure and template at your home or business. The template, precisely measured, is then used by our fabrication team to cut and polish your stone to perfection. This process ensures a perfect fit and prepares the stone for installation. Many projects require wet polish, especially for under mount sinks, and this would be done in our shop. The actual sink you select is used to cut and polish the interior rim of the sink hole. This ensures a proper fit each and every time. Top mount sinks, appliances, and faucet holes are cut on-site at the time of installation. We have many different standard and specialty edges to choose from. Specialty edges are polished by hand and require more time and cost to manufacture. Take a look at this site to view different granite edges.
