Directions for Cutting a Granite Countertop

Updated:2013-08-21 14:41:42
Granite countertops are a beautiful and functional addition to most any kitchen or bathroom. While granite counter tops will increase the value of your home, they are fairly expensive. You can lower the cost of the addition by measuring and cutting the granite yourself. Though the job of cutting the granite is not difficult, it is not the same as cutting many other materials. Having the proper tools for the job and knowing how to cut it is important to success.

Instructions as follows:

                                            

Firstly, support both sides of the piece of granite you are cutting. Keep in mind that granite is heavy. As you cut the granite into two pieces you must support the weight of both pieces, so that the weight of the granite does not break the piece rather than allowing the saw to cut on the intended line.

Secondly, measure the granite carefully. Clearly mark where you intend to cut with a pencil or crayon.
Thirdly, using a circular saw equipped with a diamond cut blade, carefully cut on the line you have marked. Use a grinder to polish the cut edges.
Fourthly, mark any cutouts on the granite. Cut circular cutouts that are small with a electric drill equipped with a diamond blade hole saw of the appropriate size. Cut larger cut outs (such as the cut out for a sink) by using the diamond blade hole saw at the four corners of the cut out and then using the circular saw equipped with the diamond blade for the straight edges.
