Granite countertops in Alpharetta are a great choice of material for your kitchen. They are durable, beautiful, and can increase the value of your home. Installing the countertops in your kitchen is not a good project to take on as a do-it-yourself job. We believe it’s best to leave it to a professional installation crew, and here’s why:
- Granite countertops are heavy. They are a natural stone. If you think about trying to pick up a rock the size of your kitchen island, you’ll understand why it takes a few guys to unload one slab from the back of the delivery truck, carefully carry it into your kitchen, and gently set it in place on top of your base cabinets. This is just the dry run!
- After some shifting around to find a perfect fit, the installers will take the countertop back up in order to add some construction adhesive to the wood base on top of your cabinets. This will help keep the granite from shifting around once it’s set on top.
- Unless you have a very small kitchen with only one side, it’s likely that your granite countertops in Alpharetta will come in a couple of big pieces that will require a seam to join them at some point. Professionals have special tools and tinted fillers to make the joints blend in as much as possible.
- Adjustments need to be made on-site to the granite sometimes in order to make the countertops fit the space. A professional crew will be able to make any necessary cuts, sand down edges, and buff out any blemishes during the installation process.
