ATLANTA, GA, October 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta granite countertops dealer, Premier Surfaces, would like to take a moment to talk about how to cut granite properly. In order to be installed correctly and to prevent leaks and premature deterioration, countertops must be cut and sized just right. While laminate may be easy to cut due to the flimsiness of the material, the Atlanta granite experts say stone is a different story. In order to ensure precise cuts every time and to avoid chipping the material or causing uneven grooves, a diamond bit blade is required. The Atlanta granite dealer also says investing in a pair of blade collars will save a lot of time and hassle as well. These devices are inserted on either side of the blade and keep it from shuttering back and forth during the cutting process.
Due to the amount of debris that is generated when cutting, another helpful tip is to equip a vacuum attachment. Not only will this keep your work space clean, it will keep you from going off course. Granite is not cheap; though minor mistakes can be repaired with a little maneuvering, uneven lines or curves can be a big problem. According to Dara Summers, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Atlanta granite countertops supplier, "At Premier Surfaces, we utilize high-end cutting machinery when sizing granite slabs. This allows us to consistently produce quality pieces, all with various shapes and features (curved, beveled, and rounded edges)." The Atlanta granite firm says when cutting manually, always prep first with a chalk outline. Proceed by cutting with a laser-guided saw for best results.
