Measuring tips:

  • Measure the wall directly behind the existing countertop or new cabinets.
  • Use our Order form to write down measurements; please use one form for each colour and style.

  • Use our Order form to write down measurements; please use one form for each colour and style.
  • If the shape of the counter top is unusual, please bring in a template. Make sure that the counter top will fit through doorways, hallways, staircases, etc.
  • On L-shapes show the depth on both sides of the L-shape drawing.
  • Indicate special sizes by circling or highlighting the measurement.
  • Finished end caps are 1½”, unless otherwise mentioned.
  • If rounded corners are required, indicate radius by the inch in a footnote - i.e., 2” radius and draw in the curve.
  • For boxes and special cut-outs, bring a template of the top. Out of “Square” counters, also require a template
