First In Counters Difference

Here are some of the reasons we feel you should call us about your next project


Staff

Our diverse team ranges from interior decorators and designers, to finish carpenters & graphic designers. Also our shop
staff has extensive training in the granite & quartz industry, with a full time serviceman experienced in stone restoration &
repairs. You can be confident that we have the necessary experience to help you through your project, however big or small.

Inventory

We have a large in stock inventory of over 250 individual slabs in nearly 100 different colours & variations, as well as
access to all wholesalers effectively putting that number in the thousands. On top of that we offer back splash in over
100 different varieties for sale or to help coordinate your design. We also offer a wide range of plumbing supplies such as
sinks, faucets, & accessories from many major brands ( i.e. Moen, Delta, American Standard, Blanco, & others) to help
you complete your project.

Process

– Planning

Our process starts with planning, our professionally trained staff will help you with any design or sales related questions.
Whether it’s a large new construction project or a small renovation job, your project is important to us & we are here to
offer any assistance you may need.

– Measuring

Once your project has been confirmed our templator will come to your site & measure using our state-of-the-art digital
laser measuring system. This process offers extreme accuracy that traditional measuring practices simply can’t provide.

– Fabrication

Using the digital template as a guide, we cut & polish your job using our state-of-the-art computer controlled fabrication
equipment. This allows for faster turnaround times & higher quality finishing than is possible by hand fabrication. Our
skilled craftspeople then take it one step further by going over the job by hand to ensure the best finish possible for your
project.

– Installation

Finally, once we are confident the job passes all quality inspections we will schedule an install date & time that is
convenient for you. Our professional installation team will then deliver & install your project in less than a day.
