Countertop Sale Process: Get Quote > Select Color > Sign Contract > Install Granite.

1. BRING A DIAGRAM: Roughly sketch out a hand drawn diagram of the project. Make sure to include the measurements for the lengths and widths of each section in your drawing. Do not worry about obtaining the exact measurements. Rounding numbers up to the nearest inch will be fine for estimation purposes. We will not use your measurements to cut or install your granite.

If you have recently purchased new cabinets, please bring all the associated diagrams you should have received at the time of that purchase.

We donít need to go your home to do estimate for your granite counter tops. We may send an estimator to your place to measure, ONLY IF your project is for a shower, tub surround, Jacuzzi Tub, fireplace, or flooring.

2. BRING SAMPLES: Before coming to Artistic Stone, consider bringing along with you a section of your current or future cabinets (such as a drawer or cabinet door) to match with our extensive granite selection. You may also elect to bring a piece of flooring, paint sample, section of wallpaper or small tile that will be used in the same area you plan to install your new granite.

3. COME IN: When you come in to one of our two different stores located throughout the Bay Area, you will be greeted by an Artistic Stone sales professional who can help you select a granite color and edge for your project.

4. GET QUOTED: Provide the Artistic Stone representative with the sketch/diagram of the area you are looking to cover with granite. Our representative will ask you a few brief questions and then come up with a quote reflecting your current layout. Each section of the quote will be thoroughly detailed and explained. We can turn around your quote as you browse through our store.

5. PICK YOUR PIECES: Before signing any documents, you will be able to select the actual pieces that will be used in your granite project. The pieces you select will be the same pieces we install for you.

6. FINISHING UP: Once all the granite has been selected and properly labeled, an Artistic Stone representative will review your contract and answer any questions you might have. You will then get to schedule an install date for your granite. In general, our lead time is about 2-3 weeks, and 90% of our installs are completed within two days. Upon completion of all these steps, a 50% deposit will be taken.

7. INSTALLATION: On the day of your scheduled installation, an Artistic Stone crew will show up at your jobsite with the granite you originally selected at our warehouse. The crew will then precisely measure the area(s) you plan to cover with granite and begin cutting your granite onsite. There is no need to template and wait for days while your granite is cut in a workshop. Our crew will take a template, cut the material and install it all at the same time. The granite will be sealed free of charge.

8. REMAINING BALANCE: Upon completion of the install, the remaining 50% balance will be due.
