Our prefabricated countertops come with four distinct edge options. Edges have a height of 1.5 inches, except for marble, limestone, and porcelain pre-fab countertops, of which carry a slightly thinner edge. We carry the largest Color selection of prefab granite, prefab marble, prefab quartz and Porcelain countertops and kitchen islands. This elegant, white quartz with subtle gray veins is a designer favorite because it so closely resembles natural marble. But unlike real marble, Calacatta Vicenza Quartz doesn’t stain or easily chip.
Then position the end cap even with the bottom edge of the build-up filler strip and press it firmly into place. Before we could assemble the miter joint, we had to cut the short section of the countertop exactly flush with the cabinet end to make room for the range. If you’re skilled with a circular saw, you can make this cut from the underside with a 40-tooth carbide blade, but it’s risky. A sharp handsaw will give you a nice, slow, controlled cut and time to react if the cut is straying from your mark. Use a traditional saw that cuts as you push the blade away from you.

The blade cuts on the up stroke, so do all your cuts from the bottom of the countertop to minimize chipping. Be sure the cutout is supported when you reach the end of your cut so you don’t break an edge. After the hole is cut, set the sink into the opening to check the fit.

However, it is not true that granite countertops will make this worse. The truth is, granite have very little porosity, so it does not hold bacteria, molds, or mildew at all, if you clean it regularly.
