Full Service Granite and Quartz Countertop Experts in Austin and San Antonio

Fox Granite operates differently than other countertop providers in San Antonio.
We are a full-service consultation agency, working with you to help execute your countertop project from start to finish. Our consultations are designed to enhance the value and the aesthetics of your home.

How Are Granite and Quartz Countertops Made?

1. Consultation

The Fox Granite team provides you with a free consultation that includes a quote for your project.

“We listen to your needs and guide you through the entire process.”

From there, we will make recommendations on the style of countertops that best match your unique requirements and help achieve the overall design look for your project. We go over other options to consider upgrading during the project, including: sinks, faucets and backsplash options.

Instead of forcing you to choose from pages and pages of different looks or asking you to run around town visiting large distributor warehouses, we present you with options we think will best accent your home. We keep on top of many different types of styles and trends, making sure you’re ahead of the curve when it comes to the look of your home.

2. Planning

After selecting us as your service provider, we plan out your project thoroughly. This starts by preparing you for the two appointments that happen in your home next:

of your countertops
of your countertops

The template process is when we get the exact measurements of your countertops for fabrication offsite. When doing more complicated layouts, we use the overlay template method to physicalize your countertop shapes. Along with the template, we also take precise written measurements to ensure your countertops are just right on the day of your installation. After the templating is done, we start fabrication and inform you on the installation timeline. It may take between 1-2 weeks to finish fabrication and be back to install the countertops.

Since we help coordinate the entire process, we can secure the sinks and advise on backsplash options. If you are providing a sink of your own, please have it ready on the day of your template appointment for us to take back to our fabrication shop.

3. Fabrication

Once the template is done, we take it back to our fabrication shop to create your countertops. Our skilled craftsmen transform the slabs entirely by hand using specialized tools. We take your template, set it on top of the granite slab, and then cut the pieces out. Once cut, your pieces are sent over to the fabricator.

The fabricator shapes your edge profile using a router and/or grinding stones, he also cuts out the sinks and grinds the roughness of the stone down. Your granite pieces pass one more craftsmen, the polisher. By the time the granite reaches the polisher its shape is permanent; thus, his role is to simply make it smooth and shine.

4. Installation

Now that your countertops have been made, it’s time for the install.

Our crew leader will keep in communication with you during the install day, providing updates on his arrival time.

We arrive, place your custom countertops, set the sink(s) in place, and drill the faucet holes. If you have granite being installed, our crew will apply one coat of sealer before completing the work and cleaning up. The crew leader can answer any general maintenance questions while at your home, or you can read our stone care guide.
