Plan to Be Home

If at all possible within your schedule, try to be home when we arrive to install your new countertops. This way, you can answer any questions we may have about your space and help us ensure that the end result is exactly what you envisioned.

For instance, what if there’s a small change you want to make to the backsplash design? Seeing the space in person can help our team make sure that we incorporate your vision into the final product.

Now, this isn’t necessarily a hard and fast requirement. We’ve carried out many successful installations where the client wasn’t home. But if you can be there, it’s always helpful.

Provide Details to Installers

When we talk about details you should be offering to your countertop installation professionals, we’re referring to both the countertops themselves and other parts of the process. For instance, letting installers know where on your property they can park or what type of shoes they should wear inside can be helpful in ensuring a seamless experience.

As for the countertops, it’s important to offer as much detail as you can about the materials and design. If there are specific measurements or cuts that need to be made, make sure to relay that information well in advance. The more our team knows about your project, the better we can serve you.

Get Pets and Children Out of the Way

If you have any pets or small children, it’s best to make arrangements for them to be out of the house during the installation process. This helps to keep everyone safe and also allows our team to work more efficiently.

We understand that not everyone has a babysitter or dog kennel on hand at a moment’s notice. But if you can plan ahead, it’s always best to remove any potential obstacles from the work area.
