Careful selection of a fabricator should be your first and most important maintenance consideration when considering a new counter top or custom fabricated stone project. A good fabricator will be qualified to make your installation a successful one by selecting the right stone for the environment it will be in, accurate templating to seam placement to correct installation. Any compromise in any one of these vital aspects will likely result in maintenance problems. Don’t let price be your deciding factor. It just may end up costing you in the long run.
