Once Select Surfaces has helped you carefully plan for your unique new look, the next step in our process involves taking accurate measurements to ensure the proper fit and function. Rather than a simple tape measure, we use advanced technology to account for every tiny detail before we begin cutting your countertops. This gives us a solid edge over our competitors, and it ensures that our clients get the best possible finished product.

How We Measure

Here at Select Surfaces, we use a digital template called PhotoTop, which allows us to gather very specific and precise length and width measurements from photos taken with a calibrated digital camera. With this technology, we can do far more than take measurements; we can also reveal key jobsite conditions that could hinder our progress – such as a bowed or warped wall – before they become problematic. This way, we’ll know exactly what we need to account for long before we even make your countertops, and the installation process will be much more efficient. Our knowledgeable technicians will gladly meet you at the jobsite location to ensure all project details are 100% correct before commencing work.

The Measurement Process

It all starts by snapping photos with a calibrated digital camera. Then, these photos are uploaded into PhotoTop so we can obtain incredibly precise measurements and account for any potential problems. Once this information has been gathered, it is passed to our professional and experienced project managers who will come up with a final plan for design and installation. Of course, this plan depends on your approval, so you’ll be included in the process each and every step of the way.

Although the measuring step may sound simple, Select Surfaces uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure that your counters are absolutely perfect the moment they’re cut. This way, the installation process goes far more smoothly, and you’ll find yourself enjoying the look, feel, and function of your bath and kitchen countertops in a fraction of the time.
