Some of the things you’ll be asked during the initial conversation
What motif or style would you like? (modern, traditional, etc.)
Are you working with a contractor, designer, or cabinet maker?
Does your project involve new cabinets or reusing existing cabinets, sinks, or appliances?
Would you like a backsplash? If yes, from the same material as countertop or tile?
To ensure an accurate estimate, we will need
Project plans or rough counter sketch indicating sink, appliances, walls, etc.
Finish selection, polished, honed or bushed
Once we have this, you will receive a written estimate with the layout for your review. Please note this is only an estimate and may change based on final measurements taken during template.
CONTRACT SIGNING & PRIOR TO TEMPLATING
All estimates, layouts, and material must be signed for and returned to Morningstar with a 50% deposit before templating
Once signed contract and deposit is made, you will be contacted to discuss the earliest possible templating date
DAY OF TEMPLATING
All cabinets must be attached and in a permanent position, leveled and secured
Cabinets that sit on the countertops need to be removed before template/install and should be reinstalled at least 24 hours AFTER the new countertops have installed
All sinks, fixtures, and appliances must be on site before templating
ISSUES THAT MAY DELAY THE TEMPLATING ON THE SCHEDULED DATE
Cabinets not installed completely
Sink(s), fixtures and appliances not on site
Change in material choices, overall design of space
FABRICATION AND SCHEDULING OF INSTALLATION
With templating completed, your project will be added to the fabrication schedule. We will contact you to confirm the earliest date possible for installation. Your sales designer will work closely with you to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Natural and engineered stone is heavy, so please have a clear path to the installation area
All plumbing, electrical and gas connections need to be disconnected by the installation date
We neither disconnect or reconnect any of these items. Arrangements should be made in advance to have the proper tradesperson handle both
On occasion, we may have to cut, ground, or polish the material onsite creating dust. We work very hard to minimize this. However, homeowners should be aware there will be dust
