When we schedule your template, we’ll ask for specifications on all your appliances, including your sink and faucet, to verify that you’re ready. We also provide this information to our template team in advance to help them prepare for your home template visit.

Getting measurements right at template is essential to making sure your countertop has the right dimensions for your space. Our template team uses the latest laser measuring equipment to measure for your countertop, verifying important details like the positions and levelness of your cabinets, your appliances, and the size of any overhangs.

We ask you to be present for the duration of the template visit because we’ll need your input on your vision for your countertop and to talk to you about seam placement, overhangs, radius corners, supports, and more. Most countertops require seams, and we will work with you to find the best locations depending on the size of the pieces, the safety of our crews, the size of the cutouts and the design of your kitchen. We will also need to discuss any work which may have to be done before installation.

After the template is complete, we review our Template Information Form with you line by line to make sure all the information is accurate. We also provide you with a rough drawing of your countertop layout, including seam positions, and maintenance and warranty information for the countertop material you selected.

Please note that although we do our best to decide on seam positions with you, our fabrication team sometimes needs to change them after the template due to structural or material cost considerations. If this happens, we will call to confirm these changes with you. The final pricing for your countertop will be confirmed through your remodeling expert after the template.
