Countertops are purchased through a fabricator that buys the slabs from one of the slab wholesalers. The customer usually visits the wholesaler to pick out the exact slab during the design process. The slab is reserved and then shipped to the fabricator. The fabricator visits the job site after the cabinets are installed to do a measure for the cut. The fabrication, and installation process typically takes 2 to 3 weeks.
