Choosing to have new countertops in your kitchen is a big deal. A kitchen upgrade is something that many people save up for throughout the years. Once you have chosen the type of counter that you want, you may be wondering how long it is going to take to have them installed.
If you choose a prefabricated laminate countertop, the time frame is going to be quite fast. These are the quickest and easiest types of counters to install.
If you choose a marble countertop or any type of natural stone countertop such as granite, installation is going to take a little while longer. Of course, the installation time will depend on the size of the kitchen, how many cutouts there are, and the complexity of the project. On average, you can expect the installation for these types of countertops to take about four to six hours. This does not include the amount of time it takes to prep the kitchen for the installation of the new countertops.
If the company you hire to install the counters is also removing the old ones, you can expect the entire project to take about three days or so. If it is a relatively small space, it is possible that the entire project from start to finish can be completed in a day.
