The total install time for Valerie’s job was about 2.5 weeks which included tile and granite installation.

The slab showers and tub surround it takes one day to install each piece. Since the material is heavy (about 15 lbs per squ ft) it will require 3 to 5 guys to maneuver the large slabs in and out of the house.  When our guys are at your home, they will make the final adjustments to fit the wall.  Typically it takes about  1 week of fabrication, before we can install the granite slabs and the counter tops.  Sometimes it is faster, however this depends on our fabrication schedule.

Installation for the shower and tub wall surrounds:

  • Install waterproofing membrane or B grade black paper.
  • Screw in cement fiberboard or blue board.
  • Install slab granite and marble.

For large showers and tub surrounds, this may take more than one day to complete.  These is the overview just no

For the counter top installation:

  • Mount and Screw Plywood
  • Mount Sink
  • Install Slab
  • Drill holes

For Tiling,

  • Level the floors with thin set or cement
  • Lay tile
  • Grout

The square footage and tile install scheme affect the total install time.
