Natural Stone Specification

When specifying natural stone fabrication, the following may affect the look and price of your design:

  • Type of material
  • Thickness of material
  • Type of edgework
  • Linear feet of finished edgework
  • Height and length of backsplashes needed
  • Opening for undermount sink, surface-mounted sink, or range.

Remember, all fabrication is not the same. When specifying stone products, don't just compare price. Ask the fabricator for the following information:

  • How will the edges be finished?
  • How many seams will there be?
  • Where will the seams be?
  • How high are the backsplashes?
  • Where will the seams be in the backsplashes?
  • Will there be any reinforcement rods?
  • What will the sink/range openings look like?
  • How will the undermount sinks be attached?

And the most important question is:

  • "Where can I see samples of your work?"
