OUR PROCESS
slab fabrication

WE LIKE TO INVOLVE OUR CLIENTS IN THE STONE FABRICATION PROCESS, THE MORE YOU UNDERSTAND, THE MORE YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH AND THE QUALITY OF YOUR PROJECT WILL BE WHAT YOU EXPECT.

WITH THAT THOUGHT IN MIND WE PRESENT YOU THE STONE FABRICATION PROCESS.

BASED ON YOUR NEEDS THE PROCESS WILL CHANGE ACCORDINGLY. BY CONVENIENCE  WE HAVE DIVIDED THE PROCESS IN TWO TYPES.

cubic work

MATERIAL SELECTION

IT CAN BE FROM OUR INVENTORY OR FROM ONE OF OUR TRUSTED SUPPLIERS, YOU CAN FIND AND SELECT THE MATERIAL YOU WANT TO USE FOR YOUR PROJECT.

CAN BE GRANITE, MARBLE, QUARTZ, QUARTZITE OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT WE HAVE THE EXPERIENCE TO HANDLE ANY MATERIAL.

SLAB LAY OUT

WHEN YOU HAVE AN EXOTIC MATERIAL WITH A LOT OF MOVEMENT, IT CAN BE SELECTED THE AREAS WHICH YOU LIKE THE MOST. THE LAY OUT CAN BE DONE DIGITAL OR MANUAL.

THAT WAY WE CAN FOLLOW YOUR PREFERENCES AND MAKE SURE YOUR PRODUCT LOOKS JUST LIKE YOU WANT IT.

CUTTING

TO CUT THE SLABS TO THE SIZES AND SHAPES NEEDED WE USUALLY USE OUR SAWS, BE IT MANUAL OR COMPUTERIZED WE HAVE THE MACHINERY TO DO BOTH.

SPECIAL CUT OUTS

SOME TYPES OF WORK BE IT KITCHEN OR WALL PANELS MAY NEED CERTAIN CUT OUTS TO BE MADE INTO IT.

BE IT A SINK, COOK TOP, OR ANY OTHER SHAPE OUR WATERJET CAN CUT ANY OF IT.

FABRICATION AND POLISH

THE NEXT STEP IN THIS PROCESS IS TO FINISH THE RAW EDGES.

BOTH PROCESS THE FABRICATION AND THE POLISH OF THE EDGES CAN BE DONE MANUAL OR BY MACHINE DEPENDING ON THE STYLE YOU CHOOSE.

INSTALLATION

AND THE FINAL STEP OF THIS ART IS TO BRING THE FINAL PRODUCT TO YOUR HOME.

IT CAN BE A KITCHEN OR WALL PANELS OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT WE WILL BRING IT TO YOUR HOME AND INSTALL IT WITH AS MUCH ATTENTION TO DETAIL AS TO WHEN WE MANUFACTURED YOUR PROJECT.

BLOCK SELECTION

GIVING THE NATURE OF CUBIC WORK WE START EVERY PROJECT WITH RAW MATERIAL.

AS WE ARE IN FLORIDA WE SPECIALIZE IN CORAL AND LIMESTONE BUT WE ALSO CAN OFFER GRANITE AND MARBLE IN MOST COLORS, THANKS TO OUR TRUSTED SUPPLIERS MOST MATERIALS CAN BE ACQUIRED.

DESIGN

SINCE WE OFFER THE SCULPTING SERVICE ANYTHING CAN BE PRODUCED.

IN ORDER TO CUT THE RAW MATERIAL TO MATCH YOUR NEED WE FIRST NEED TO DESIGN AND KNOW THE MEASUREMENTS OF THE PRODUCT NEED IT.

RAW MATERIAL CUTTING

BASED ON THE RAW MATERIAL DIMENSIONS WE WILL DECIDE WHICH MACHINE WILL BE USED FOR THE CUTTING.

IF IS A QUARRY BLOCK IT NEEDS TO BE CUT ON OUR BIGGEST SAW WITH A CIRCULAR BLADE OF 10 FEET WE CAN HANDLE MOST STANDARDS QUARRY BOULDERS.

CUT DOWN TO SIZE

DEPENDING ON THE PROJECT WE WILL DECIDE THE ELEMENT SIZES.

THE MATERIAL MAY NEED TO BE ADJUSTED IN ORDER TO PRODUCE THE DESIRED PRODUCT, SO THE BLOCK SECTIONS MAY NEED TO BE MOVED TO A SMALLER SAW TO BE CUT DOWN TO THE APPROPRIATE SIZE.

 

SCULPTING/CARVING

BE IT A FIREPLACE OR A SCULPTURE WE CAN HANDLE ANYTHING AND WE HAVE THE MACHINES AND EXPERIENCE TO PRODUCE ANY PROJECT.

SOME TIMES SOME DETAILS HAVE TO BE HAND CARVED IN THAT CASE OUR STAFF WILL HANDLE THE PRODUCTION OF SUCH DETAILS.

 

SOME PRODUCTS JUST REQUIRE FROM US TO BE DELIVERED TO THE JOB SITE BUT IF IT REQUIRE INSTALLATION OUR STAFF HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE TO DO MOST INSTALLATIONS. NOT ONLY IN PRODUCTION BUT ALSO IN THE FINAL PRESENTATION WE TAKE PRIDE IN DOING THE MOST TO MAKE IT LOOK BEAUTIFUL.
