Granite window sills

Image Granite window sills
Granite window sills are beautiful to look at, bring light into a room and are impervious to water damage. This tub surround with granite backsplash and sills looks and functions wonderfully. Oscar did an exceptional job installing it with Faustino as they always do. It is really is an impressive job.

Granite slab kitchen

Image Granite slab kitchen
Juses installing a granite slab kitchen. He is caulking between the cabinets and the granite in the picture. Juses has installed over 300 kitchens with Signature Surfaces NW and continues his impeccable record of attending to all of the details that matter to us and our customers with help from Faustino and the rest of the crew.
Image Granite Counters - matching movement & colors
Good seams start with laying out templates on the stone. Color and movement should flow from one piece to the next in a natural way. Our customers are invited to take part in the layout of there templates.
Image Granite Counters - matching movement & colors
This seam is in the same kitchen as the picture below. It is leveled but not epoxied yet. Again, the movement and color of this Crema Bordeaux granite is layed out and cut so that one piece flows into the next, making the seams disappear. If stones with movement are layed out and installed properly, the seams are actually less noticeable than solid colors.

Copenhagen Granite Countets

This material is extremely fragile and hard to work with but looks amazing. After 8+ years working with granite l am still amazed at the incredible pieces of stone that are cut from mountains, shipped half way around the world, polished and installed in your kitchens. It is a joy and a rush to successfully do this work for all of you with my allstar team. Thank you.

Blue Pearl

Faustino finishing up a large granite slab kitchen of Blue Pearl. This ocean view home in Florence had a piece break during transit, the first one of the year. We will never install a broken piece of granite and will also always redo it at our own expense.

Black Pearl Granite Vanity

Image Black Pearl Granite Vanity
This 9ft piece of 3cm black pearl granite fits nicely between a wall and a cabinet. With two undermount sinks the piece is fragil. The wall side must go in first because of light switches. In order to make sure the cabinet does not get scratched during installation, the granite was polished smooth on that side even though it will not be seen. Tape was also placed on the cabinets as an extra precaution. The end result is a tight fit without any damage to any of the rest of the project.

Black Pearl Granite

This kitchen was transformed with slab granite counters, new appliances and a tile backsplash. Tumble stone is one of my favorite material for a backsplash as its matt finish and soft uneven texture complements the high polish of granite very nicely.

Bianco Travisa

Image Bianco Travisa
This material is beautiful! The soft light colors and movement are timeless and inviting. Although it is sold as a quartzite, sometimes, it cuts, polishes and wears like a marble. In my opinion, that is because it is a marble and a homeowner considering t.his material should be prepared for it to scratch, etch and stain like a marble, not a quartzite. It is also quite pricey. Feel free to contact us if you have questions, even if you are in another state. We are happy to share our knowledge and experience.

Bathroom Vanity, Brazilian Flower

Image Bathroom Vanity, Brazilian Flower
Installing long pieces between two walls can be difficult. The under mount sinks make them fragile and l am still waiting for a job that all of the walls are straight! Shims are used to support the stone if the cabinets are not level. They will get cut off flush with the cabinets and then caulked over to match the cabinets.
