Edge Profile

The edge profile is the front edge surface of the countertop that faces outward and is highly visible. The edging process is a finishing process that takes the "sharpness" and minor imperfections out of the stone's front edge and polishes it to an extremely smooth and uniform surface.

A proper edge profile adds impact to the beauty of a natural stone slab surface and helps integrate the stone into the overall design for the room. It helps to create a unique and extraordinary countertop that reflects your personal style and still meets the practical needs of your busy life.

With the right edge detail, your countertop will make a striking and lasting impression by bringing out the personality you are trying to create. You can match the backsplashes with the countertop edge by having your edge profile applied to your backsplashes (featured below), even though the majority of backsplashes have a standard edge profile.

These are the most popular edges for bathrooms, kitchens and fireplaces, such as flat, quater round, beveled, laminated edge, bullnosed, etc.Choose the right edge profile for your granite and marble countertops, vanity tops. A proper edge profile adds impact to the beauty of a natural stone slab surface and helps integrate it into the overall design of the room.



Lamination
Lamination is the gluing of layers of stone together to achieve a desired thickness or layered effect. Most materials are available in 3/4" and 1-1/4" thickness; however, we use 1-1/4 thick material because of several advantages. Any combination can be laminated together. To save the cost and reduce the weight, the whole countertop is not laminated, only the finished sides. The laminate strips are usually 3" to 6" wide depending on overhang.
