Along with choosing a unique color, all countertops have a choice of different edges to enhance their look in your home. Some of the more basic edges are free with the purchase of a countertop while other, more ornate ones have a fee per linear foot.
The most basic edge available is called the square edge.
Other, edges include Radius, Bullnose, Bevel, Full Bullnose, Ogee, Dupont, Triple Pencil (Waterfall), Chiseled, Double laminated etc. See our edge section for photos.
Because of advanced CNC technology, making different types of edges is now more affordable. The most complex edges, however, take a lot longer to fabricate and are therefore more expensive than just the basic ones. A limitation on edges depends on what thickness of granite is being fabricated and for what purpose. Most fancy edges used on 1 ¼” thick kitchen countertops are not available on 3/4” material.
When choosing your edges, keep in mind that your countertop, vanity, or other granite piece will last for a long time so while it may be a bit more expensive to get a upgraded edge, it will add to the beauty and aesthetic of your home for years to come.
We have edge samples shaped on actual granite pieces in our showroom
Granite is a very durable and sturdy natural stone that is often used for kitchen countertops. Because each countertop is made from a giant slab, all cutting of the main shapes, edges, sink and faucet holes is done at our facility, with minor adjustments made on location. This is all done using the latest technology and our own professionals. Upon installation, the granite is sealed with 15 years sealer.
We are using the latest technology in fabricating countertops (CNC machines). However all edge polishing is done manually, due to better quality.
It begins by forming a template of the desired counter and saving it to a computer where our professionals can make any necessary adjustments including edges, sink, and faucet holes. Once everything is mapped out, the machine makes the necessary cuts in a time period that is much smaller than when previously done by hand.
