You may have seen a few beautiful examples of
granite countertops in Baltimore, but you are probably unfamiliar with the processes they have gone through
before becoming finished products. From granite slabs to dazzling kitchen
fixtures, watch this video to find out how granite countertops are made.
Granite countertops start out as massive slabs that weigh one thousand
pounds or more. Workers start the transformation by putting the slabs
on cutting tables with the help of a few specialized tools. They can then
use a computer guided saw with a diamond blade to form the slab into a
rough shape. Next, workers use highly pressurized water jets to cut the
granite into the desired shape. Once the proper shape has been achieved,
the countertop is ready for finishing. This involves several different
types of grinder and sander pads. The granite countertop can then be polished
and prepared for shipment.
