Seams, Granite Where?

Image Seams, Granite Where?
Yes, there is a seam here. A big part of making seams hard to find is in the layout of the stone so that the color and movement blend together. Jesus also does an awesome job with the installation.

Marble in the Kitchen

Image Marble in the Kitchen
White Cararra marble is timeless. From castles and churches to your home, marble has been used for its beauty and permanence for centuries. Fortunately, now you dont have to be a king to enjoy marble counters as the process of mining, shipping and fabrication has become much more economical. This kitchen was installed with a white farm sink and white cabinets. Timeless. There are some downsides to marble when comparing it to granite and quartz counters that an owner should no about. See products or come visit us for more info.

Laying out granite

Image Laying out granite
A large kitchen put together in the shop. Polishing all the pieces together ensures that the pieces fit together perfectly and color and movement can be checked so that the beauty of the stone is uninterrupted as it flows from one piece into the next.

Large pieces of granite = fewer seams

Image Large pieces of granite = fewer seams
Signature Surfaces NW fabricates and installs larger pieces of granite than most companies do. The end result is fewer seams and a more spectacular kitchen. In this case, instead of seaming the center sink piece, we used a forklift to bring the granite in through an upstairs window as the stairwell was to narrow to use. There are no seams in the kitchen or bathrooms in this beautiful ocean front home.

Installing a huge island!

Image Installing a huge island!
This 1000 lbs. piece of granite was to heavy to lift, so we use clamps and a rolling apparatus to get it in place without ever having to lift more than half of its weight. It still took 5 guys.
