There is only one way to guarantee the level of quality in stone countertop fabrication, and that is by utilizing the most up-to-date technology. Stone Masters uses the most advanced fabrication process by utilizing the Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machinery. These extraordinary machines eliminate the need to do fabrication manually. Moreover, the manual fabrication is both more labor intensive and less precise; therefore, we have invested in CNC machines to ensure that your countertops are perfect and affordable.
Other fabricators resort to dry-cutting in order to save time and this results in love quality finishes on the stone edges, producing a bumpy and uneven finish, as well as dull appearance. With the CNC technology these problem are eliminated. Thanks to a computer control, the line of the edge is perfect – the pressure from the top keeps the stone from moving, and the stream of water protects the stone from heating up during the cutting process which both result in a smooth, even, and shiny edge.
Because we begin with stones of highest level of premium quality, and we use the most current methods, we can stand behind our fabrication like no other company. Unlike the commercial grade stones, our products are without uneven colors and pattern distributions, so there are no irregularities in the polish. Although commercial slabs can be used for countertops, they do not result in the desired appearance because of the uneven distribution of color that can be a challenge to the eyes, and even can be damaged be the fabrication process, At Stone Masters the quality always comes first.
