Select your Cooking Surface


The type of cooking surface you choose will directly affect the measurements of your stone countertops. 

Cooktop 
A cooktop cooking surface is “dropped-in” to counter surface. Cooktop cooking surfaces requires that a precise cutout in the stone countertops be made during fabrication. A cooktop must be at the countertop installation location prior to final measurements being taken or a specific brand and model number must be provided. Your contractor or remodeler can provide you with specific cooktop requirements regarding the specifications needed.

Range
Ranges are often referred to as "free-standing" or "slide-in". These do not require a countertop cut-out. To ensure proper fit, a range must be at job site prior to final measurements being taken, or a specific brand and model number must be provided. Your contractor or remodeler can provide you with specific cooktop requirements regarding the specifications needed.

Downdraft Ventilation
If you choose a downdraft ventilation system that drops into your cabinetry or open space behind a cooking surface, an additional cut-out will be required for fabrication. This cut-out will allow your ventilation system to sit flush with your countertop. The downdraft vent should be at the job site for final measure to determine cut-out size and placement. This will also help to ensure it fits properly behind the cooking appliance. Your contractor or remodeler can provide you with specific cooktop requirements regarding the specifications needed.
