What is Fabrication?
The dictionary says fabrication is “the action or process of manufacturing or inventing something.” In terms of stone, fabrication is the process by which your slab is transformed into a finished piece. Fabrication usually involves cutting, polishing and routing. Routing is creating edge profiles. Before your countertop, mantel, or other custom item is completed, a final inspection that ensures everything is smooth and blemish free. The final inspection also involves the steps of sealing and cleaning. After that, your stone is ready for installation.
Stone Polishing Process
Polishing is one of the most important steps in fabrication. Using a series of small sanding pads, your fabricator will sand the face and edges of the slab so they match. The polishing step involves water for cooling, and varying grits to smooth the stone and work out any issues. The results are the beautiful slabs you see in homes.
Which Stones Can Be Fabricated?
Just about every natural stone, including limestone, marble, granite, and travertine, as well as some man-made materials can be fabricated.
Another essential step in the fabrication process is the creation of templates. Your contractor will visit the job site to make precise templates that will be used to create your finished stone product. The template helps determine where each piece will be cut, and allows the fabrication process to occur offsite.
