- All natural stone (Granite, Marble, etc.) contains fishers, micro-cracks, pores and slight variations in thickness and colour.
- Colours will vary from samples.
- Quartz, being man made, may contain slight warpage causing unlevel seams.
- Colours may become unavailable without notice.
We use a very sensitive laser to measure. The following criteria must be followed for measure: Clear off all counters to be measured (temporary sinks can stay). All pets must be locked out of areas to be measured. All cabinets must be completely installed, fastened together and to the walls including all doors, end panels and gables. Older cabinets often require re-leveling prior to measure to avoid large gaps caused by excessive shimming. This is the home-owners responsibility. All doors, end panels and gables must be installed. Customer supplied sinks and faucets must be on site at time of measure. Appliances cannot be in the middle of the kitchen (laser needs to be set in the middle of room). Actual stove/cooktop and fridge or installation manual/make & model must be on site.
