Why You Need A Measure Appointment

Installing new laminate countertops requires professional expertise to ensure precise measurements for height, depth and length

Backsplashes and cutaways for sinks must also be measured precisely before your countertop is fabricated

Our installers also need to be informed in advance of any kitchen upgrades you may require such as a new sink/cooktop, backsplash, or kitchen island
