Frequently Asked Questions

A standard counter typically costs substantially less in solid surface material. Quartz and Granite have about the same price range and are generally more expensive than a solid surface counter.
Standard countertops general take about seven to ten days to complete from the time of field measure. Times are not always exact but we will schedule field measure and installation date when your contract is finalized. We make every effort to keep the time to a minimum.
At Olive Mill, we price each project based on your unique specifications. Because there are so many variables, we believe you will get the best price using your dimensions and specifications. You will know the price of your job prior to signing a contract. We will not change the price unless there are changes in the scope of the job.
Slabs are almost always sold intact. Buying random slabs would be analogous to buying fabric remnants. Like a tailor, your fabricator buys the raw material and bases his price on the complete fabrication and installation of your job. The number of slabs and the amount of resulting waste is determined by the size and configuration of your countertop. He will lay out of your job in a way that minimizes waste and maximizes the natural beauty of the material you selected.
Solid surface, quartz and granite are all mid to high-end countertop materials. Typically, individuals interested in a specific "look" that is only available with a specific material will not necessarily be happy with a compromise. Each material has its advantages. However, there is no such thing as a perfect counter material.
From the time you place the order, it generally takes about 3 weeks to have a finished counter. If we are installing your project we prefer to make the template (countertop pattern) 7 - 10 days prior to the installation date.
We work with a licensed plumber to reinstall your faucet, garbage disposal, air gap, drains etc. They are typically scheduled to come the following day after the installation of the countertop to allow everything time to set.
Sinks come in Top Mount, Botton Mount/Undermount or Seamed-In. I would love to say their is a best but they all have their pros and cons. Top mount would be great for a decorative sink in a powder room. Undermount is excellent for the kitchen and bath where you wan't easy cleanup. Seamed-In allows the sink to be adhered directly to the uderside of the counterotp to make it one piece. Most of our customers choose an undermount or seamed-in because they are much easier to maintain.
