pending availability of slabs.

All necessary appliances including cook top, down draft,
stove, sink, dishwasher or any other pertinent items are on site. Any item that requires a cut
in the store will be taken (if necessary) at the time of the template and returned at the time of installation.
If GNM has to make an additional trip to the job site due to the job site being
unprepared to complete some work at the site, additional fees may apply.
3. Viewing and Approving Your Slabs
Your slabs should be viewed and approved before template and before we start fabricating.

in cabinets we will NOT be responsible for damages.
7. Removal of old tops (demolition)
Installation of countertop does not include removal of old tops unless agreements have been made for us to do so.
If we are installing your new top in an existing kitchen, there may be unfinished areas of your wall or cabinets that will be
exposed and/or covered by your new top. We DO NOT finish these areas. If we do a demolition of an existing countertop,
If there is a mirror (bath area) which has to be remove, the owner has to removed that mirror. If the owners want us to
remove it we are not responsible for the mirror if it breaks and we do not install it back. This is the customer responsibility.

completed at the job site and dusting is to be expected.

Final wall preparation (painting, wallpaper, etc) should NOT be completed at a installation if it is possible.
Care will be exercised during the countertop installation, however scrapes, punctures or digs are possible which are incidental damages and are customer's responsibility to repair.
Placement of seams is the discretion of the fabricator, and will be visible to the eye or touch. Color coordinated epoxy will be used
to form the seam and blend in with the countertop. Even though a customer is consulted with regards to the seam location, the fabricator reserves the right to adjust if needed.
