CREATING THE PERFECT COUNTERTOP
The first step in the process is to determine what material you wish to use as the base medium for your monument. Do you choose something durable and consistent, like man-made quartz? Are you looking for something more natural like polished granite? Or do you prefer something a bit more exotic, like soapstone? All of the above and more are available in multiple colors and patterns.
During this consultation phase, we will discuss your needs, requirements and preferences and our experts will help you come find the perfect solution. Once you have made this important decision, we can move on to the next step.
Once you have approved the estimate and agreed on materials, Minneapolis Granite Interiors uses a digital templating system to produce an accurate, and near exact measurement of your kitchen. This is the point when we finalize details like which edge profile you prefer and you will make sink and faucet selection, which we will use to ensure the perfect finish.

Once you have chosen a particular type of stone, and we will give you an exact estimate based on the type, color and square footage you select.
The final steps in the manufacturing process are to cut the stone slab into the shape of your countertop. These stone cutouts are then sent over to a computerize saw where, based on our digital measurements, cuts and smoothes out the stone, then adds the edge profiles cuts out any spaces needed for your chosen sink & faucet. The countertop is then taken from the cutting room and hand polished by our craftsmen.
