The Finishing Touches
If splashes are included in the job, DCD installers will apply caulking to the base of the splash where the splash and countertop meet. They will also apply caulking on the top of the splash where it meets the wall.
Cleaned and Sealed
The countertops are cleaned and sealed (Only natural stone is sealed. Quartz, also called engineered stone, do not require sealing).
Doors and Drawers Open
The installation crew will insure that the doors and drawer open. It is standard procedure for the doors and drawers to be adjusted and the hardware installed by others after the countertops are installed.
It is not possible for the countertop to cause one door or drawer to rub on the countertop while the neighboring door or drawer operates correctly.
If doors or drawers do not open properly and there is no adjustment available, the countertops can be shimmed to overcome the cabinet issue.
Completed Job Checklist
The onsite person is asked to inspect and approve every aspect of the installation when complete.
