Countertop InstallationWhen it comes to countertop installation, many customers are curious about how long the process will take. The answer, however, depends on many different factors. Countertop installation can be accomplished fairly quickly, but the entire process going from conception to completion can take longer than many homeowners realize. Samples have to be chosen, materials frequently have to be ordered, and installation crews need to be scheduled. It could be a week — or even months —  before you can enjoy the results. However, there are a few general rules when it comes to the material chosen.

Prefabricated laminate countertops are the easiest and quickest to install. Typically, they can take three to five hours for the workmen to complete. Natural stone countertops such as granite or marble will take a little longer — four to six hours on average. Other popular choices include wood ( three to six hours), stainless steel (six to nine hours), and tile (12 to 14 hours). Of course, actual installation times can vary depending on the size of the project and the number of workmen involved.

If you’re hoping to get new countertops before a special event or the holiday season, it’s best to start well in advance. To learn more about countertop installation and all your hardware and home remodeling needs, call Kohlhepp J.A. Sons at (814) 371-5200 or visit them online.
