About Natural Stone
The natural stone or dimension stone (for example, granite) is shaped using cutting and finishing equipment in the shop of the fabricator. The edges are commonly put on by hand-held routers, grinders, or CNC equipment. If the stone has a highly varigated pattern, the stone may be laid out in final position in the shop for the customer's inspection. Then the countertop assembly is installed on the job site. Initial slab fabrication usually takes place at or near the quarry of origin, with blocks being sawn to thickness and then machined into standard widths, before being surface polished and edged. This method removes the need to ship waste material, and reduces the time needed to prepare client orders. A wide range of details may be pre-fabricated on premises in Newark, allowing for easier and faster installation of different stone elements.
