Fabrication and Installation Process

This is an important investment purchase, which will increase the value of your home. Sacramento Granite Designs (SGD) takes pride in its craftsmanship and most importantly, we take the dedication for high quality fabrication and installation. SGD Invites you to work with our team of professionals and experience the difference in customer service and superior quality.

Confirming the Fabrication Order:

When you are ready to proceed, we will ask that you sign your proposal (contract) to process your order. At this time a vender appointment will be scheduled with one of our professional team members to select and inspect your stone of choice. Following this process, your appointment for tear-out of existing materials, template and installation will be scheduled.

Tear-out and Template Process:

On the scheduled date, we will begin the removal of existing materials. At this time the sink, plumbing, and cook top will also be disconnected. With prior notice SGD will gladly install plywood during tear-out visit (prices will vary depending on the size of the counters). If SGD is not installing the plywood, your counter tops should be prepared with 5/8″ plywood.

Once the tear-out is complete we will proceed to template your project. If your original measurements are different from the template, the final price of the project will be adjusted accordingly. It is very important for you or your contractor to be at the template appointment to discuss any concerns, specifics, and or changes to your project prior to installation since no changes will be made once the templates are completed. Upon concluding this appointment a standard 50% is due, to be collected by our template representative.

Fabrication Time Expectancy:

Please keep in mind fabrication times can and may vary with job size and complexity of design. General fabrication time and installation are one to two weeks.

During Installation:

The installation process can take from one to two days. The electrical outlets (if applicable), the sink faucets, cook top, and top mount sink will be cut on site. Once installation is complete, we clean-up after ourselves.


Once installation is complete, your inspection and final approval of the job is very important to us, therefore, we will do this together. At this time, the remaining final payment balance of 50% is due. SGD will follow-up with a phone call to ensure your satisfaction and to answer any maintenance questions you may have.
