What Is Countertop Fabrication?
A stone fabricator cuts slab pieces of stone into surfaces including countertops, fireplace surrounds and backsplashes. Computer-driven CNC machines, water jets and bridge saws are used to cut these slabs. Metropolitan has its own fabrication facility and an experienced team of stone fabricators.
What Kind of Stone Do you Fabricate Near Boston?
All different types of man-made and natural stone are cut at Metropolitan’s countertop fabrication shop near Boston. Natural stones fabricated include quarzite, marble, granite and soapstone. However, the most popular choice for homeowners is quartz, which is a man-made stone. All of these stones can be fabricated into kitchen counters, bathroom vanity countertops, stone fireplace surrounds and for bathtubs and showers.
A popular trend is full height backsplash, where the stone goes all the way up to the bottom of the upper cabinets.

Are Sinks and Faucets Part of Fabrication?
Kitchen and bathroom sinks and faucets are very important to the fabrication process. Both sinks and faucets need to be chosen so the right size hole is cut. At Metropolitan we sell sinks by popular brands Kohler and Blanco.
For faucets, there are different layouts to consider. In a kitchen, you may want to have a soap dispense hole cut, or a hot water faucet. For bathrooms you must decide if you want a sink hole faucet or a widespread faucet. These decisions need to be made before the stone is cut.
How Long Does Stone Fabrication Take?
The fabrication process varies depending on the time of year and local demand. We always try to manage client’s expectations from the start with a timeline of when the countertop will be ready.
It’s also important to coordinate all the different pieces of a renovation project that are separate from Metropolitan, including the tile installation, flooring and electrical.
