As the title suggests we measure with extreme precision. Our evolution has led us from the old stick and glue method of template making onjob sites, to having advanced laser template system where the data is directly converted from the space to cover into digital instructions.
Property restoration, rehabilitation, remodel, or new construction – each project type comes with it’s own unique set of problems. We serve all markets in the central Florida area West coast to East coast of Florida. We show up for a measure having collected most of the pertinent information to point our template technician in the right direction. Remodels with existing countertops need special consideration dependent upon the type of surface that needs to be removed. Tile covered countertop surfaces can incur heavy tear out fees as they are usually built with a layer of plywood then some sort of concrete or thin-set, then the tile and grout. Above all that having the experience to account for different thickness tolerances to get the new tops to fit correctly and cover the old splash on the walls. New construction often uses different sub-contractors to do the tile throughout the residence or commercial job site so our tolerances to walls with curves etc need to be templated differently and may need special installation consideration for certain granite countertop types. An example of this are honed material requires special tooling to achieve a matching finish on polished edges.
After templating is completed and materials hand selected by our customer and their designer(s) arrive at our shop we go through a process to best yield the material and look the best through vein matching process. Above is a picture finally approved by the customer for their outdoor kitchen. On the right is the Waterjet cutting the corners of pieces our and sink holes that have no straight lines. It can’t be understated the amount of errors avoided through being able to cut an exact circle in the perfect place right on the saw.
We then use special pneumatic lifters to carefully remove pieces in order to stage for final fabrication. We lift them carefully onto heavy duty carts and the pieces are staged for fabrication.
At long last the date is confirmed for installation, stone is fabricated and passed Quality control. Out go our expert install technicians to complete the job. We don’t like to brag, but this one came out wonderful! It’s always such a joy to work with clients that have the time and resources to do something really special and unique.
