Slab design & installation process
At Tithof we thrive on challenging projects that push the limit of creativity and design. We work closely with the area’s top general contractors, architects, designers and kitchen and bath firms to provide the most competitive quality for value. We offer many custom features to enhance your project, such as the integration of natural stone sinks, custom edge profiles, drain board systems, thinning, mitering and laminating.
Our Fusion SawJet and CNC router provide greater capability to produce anything imaginable. Additionally, we have the ability to alter the surface of the stone by honing, brushing or polishing. As natural stone fabricators, we work with granite, quartzite, marble, limestone, travertine, onyx, as well as most engineered quartz products available in the marketplace. Some Quartz brands we feature are: Caesarstone, Color Quartz, Diresco, Difiniti, Zodiaq, Silestone and Hanstone. Recent additions to the countertop marketplace include both glass and porcelain surfaces with major brands such as Vetrazzo, Rinato, Glass2 and The Size.
Our main focus is keeping our clients involved throughout the templating and layout process, to ensure every client knows what their project will look like before anything is cut or installed. The evolution of this layout process has changed in recent years. Gone are the days of blue tape and visual concepts. With the recent introduction of the Perfect Match and Slabsmith software programs, we have the ability to digitally layout every slab project and create a virtual representation of the project for approval, prior to cutting. That being said, many clients still choose to view their Layouts in person at our Wisconsin fabrication facility, which after recent renovations, is by far the most advanced in our market.
