Since the average granite slab is less than 10 feet long, most countertops will require at least one seam. Our goal is to keep the number of seams to a minimum.
The visibility of the seam is affected by the pattern and color of the stone. In general, seams are less visible on dark granites with a small uniform grain and more visible on lighter color granites with veins and swirls of color.
Our signature seam polishing technique makes the seam on your countertop less visible.
The choice for the seam placement is largely dictated by the design and layout of your countertop and cabinetry.

The seam is less conspicuous when placed in the sink bowl area, but can create extra stone waste.
Below are three other options for seam placement
This photo shows a miter joint in the corner, resulting in the longest seam. However, it may be an optimal solution when using a corner appliance garage that covers a large portion of the countertop surface area.
