Fabrication time varies by project. Standard lead time is 3 weeks from the date of template but can vary based on project size and workload of fabricator. Please ask your sales rep for an approximate lead time for your project.
Once fabrication is complete, a representative from Granite Division will call with an install date.
Prior to the install date, clear off all counters and remove all items from lower cabinets.
Create a clear path through your home for easy access to the installation area. It is recommended that floor surfaces along this path be covered to minimize traction of dirt and debris from installers movement in and out of the house.
It is recommended that you cover entryways, vents and furniture in the areas adjacent to the installation.
Move all breakables such as lamps, vases, mirrors, wall hangings, antiques or other valuables from areas affected by installation work.
Prior to the install date, schedule other trades for necessary plumbing, electrical and carpentry work. Granite Division does not provide plumbing, electrical or carpentry services.

Have an adult over the age of 18 with authority to make installation decisions on hand during installation.
For safety, keep children and pets away from the construction area.
Once installation is complete, review and sign the Certificate of Completion.
Installers will leave you with a can of our granite cleaner, CPR. If you have any other questions regarding care and maintenance of your installed tops please contact your sales rep.
PLEASE READ: Tear out and installation of countertops is a major construction process. There will be some unavoidable minor damage done during tear out and installation to surrounding walls, existing tiles, and possibly cabinets. Countertop installers are not responsible for this damage. This type of damage occurs with most installations and the customer should be prepared to make touchups and repairs once the countertops are installed. Granite Division will not discount, credit, or in any way reduce the price due to minor scratches or construction damage. Some dust and debris will result from the installation process. Smells from adhesives and sealants will be noticeable after installation and will dissipate over a 48-hour period.
If you contracted Granite Division for your tile backsplash, the tile installation will NOT be on the same day as granite installation. Install will be scheduled as soon after installation as possible.
Inspect your countertops fully. Let us know if you have any areas of concern.
For final payment, please send check to the office. Credit card payments may be made by phone to (903) 535-9000. Credit card numbers are not kept on file.
