Integrating a countertop installation with your home remodel is a great way to automatically enhance the overall resale value of your home. Implementing this strategy is easier said than done, especially when dealing with a new installation.
The primary stages of a fresh countertop installation include:
Prepping the Area
Prepping the area involves clearing the section of any appliances and furnishings, shutting down the water lines, and disconnecting any plugs. You will also cut the counter material, it’s essential to use tools designed for the particular material you’ve chosen. You should also account for the overhang during measurement, which is generally between 3/4th to 1 inch. The Countertops should be marked before the cutting begins, as this isn’t an activity with much room for second chances.
Installing the Countertop
Once you have cut out a template, secure it with slabs and sand down the surface. Many providers also offer prefabricated options that don’t require cutting. Next, remove any caulking from the backsplash before removing your old countertop and dry-fitting the new one. Apply adhesive along the top section of the cabinets to connect the counter to the cabinets. If you would rather have a professional handle the matter on your behalf, call us today!
