Order DIY Granite Countertops After cabinets are installed, it’s time to measure for the granite countertops. It’s wise to be very precise. In this project a do-it-yourself granite countertop service provides the granite countertops, a modular system that eliminates expensive fabrication. The granite system requires sheets of ¾” plywood be laid on top of the cabinets to support the granite. Granite comes in a myriad styles and choices. Personal selection depends on a variety of factors including overall design and style of the kitchen, color and type of cabinets and flooring, local availability of granite, individual taste and more. Be sure to note how much you want your countertop to overhang the face frames of the cabinets, typically 1″ to 1 1/2″. Also note which edges of the counter should have a bull-nose or other style of finished edge. Allow 3 to 4 weeks, and sometimes longer, for delivery. If one chooses to go with a granite fabricator, the fabricator will commonly want to do its own measurements and installation to insure precise fitting.

Prepare to Install Granite Countertops You’ll need help working with granite slabs. Some of the slabs alone can weigh more than 200 pounds. Granite slabs can also be brittle, so handle them with utmost care. Be sure to have space set aside to store the slabs before installation. It’s best to store them as upright as possible, be careful to not let them “domino” and break. Your walls may not be perfectly square, so it’s a great idea to create a template for the granite countertops. Use kraft paper (or a stiffer material) to make a template of the actual measurement of the countertop. (A template is easier to move around than making marks on a granite slab.) If you need to scribe a slab to fit, apply duct tape to the base of the saw to protect the granite. Use a circular saw with a dry-cut segmented diamond blade. Test fit pieces that are cut, and be careful with long, thin pieces that could snap.
