The Granstone Process
Selecting your Soapstone
The first step in the process will be to come visit our showroom at 17 Enterprise Ave Unit H. Please be sure to bring a rough drawing with measurements of your project. The showroom includes the various colours of soapstone as well as samples of sinks, faucets and backsplashes. We will be happy to work with you to match your cabinets and tiles and to help you select the perfect colour for your room and your budget. Upon selection of colours, we can provide an estimate for the project subject to final measurements. Please note, soapstone colors and look are highly variable.
To proceed to the next step in the process, a signed quote is required along with a 40% deposit.
Our all-inclusive option includes visiting your home for measurements (within city limits). Upon confirmation of measurements and if necessary we will update the quote to reflect any changes in total sqft.

We require 4-5 business days in most cases to fabricate and prepare the soapstone for installation. Using the latest in CNC technology, this process is completed in our workshop to minimize dust and interruption.
Installation takes on average 3-4 hours to complete for an average sized kitchen. In order for us to install quickly and efficiently, we request the following:
Please have your walkways and driveways cleared as well as a clear path to the area to be installed
- Empty all cabinets and drawers.
- Secure delicate items – Please remove any breakable items and cover items to protect them from the dust that can be created
- Faucets – Please have ready any faucets or any other items that need to be drilled into the countertops.
- Removing old countertops – Unless otherwise stated, old counter tops are to be removed prior to installation.
- Plumbing – All plumbing is to be disconnected prior to Granstone installing the counter tops. Granstone will fasten the sink but will not reconnect any plumbing. All plumbing work unless otherwise stated is the responsibility of the homeowner
- Appliances – Large appliances are to be removed and out of the way prior to install as they can get inadvertently damaged during installation
- The 60% balance is due upon completion and subject to our payment terms and conditions.

Please allow 24 hours for the adhesive to dry thoroughly before reconnecting the plumbing and start using the sink.
