Getting Started

Getting Started with Universal Stone Inc.


Step 1: Getting a Quote

The first step in the countertop process to meet, assess your needs, and provide an estimate. Our estimates are based on the size of the kitchen, material, edge profile, back or side splash and cutouts.

If you don’t know what stone you want to use it’s best to schedule an appointment to view our amazing granite, marble and quartz options.  Our showroom is located at 3019 West 133rd Street, Shakopee, MN 55379.   When picking out your stone, you might consider bringing a sample of your tile, wall colors, cabinet door or any other detail.  We listen to your ideas and make helpful recommendations to suit your style and budget. We will inspect and tag your stone choice, and will start to prepare your order. After which your project is ready for the next step…

Step 2: Starting on your project

Next we will schedule onsite Template Appointment. (Note: cabinetry must be installed, and all appliances and/or sinks must be available.) Universal Stone requires a 50% deposit to proceed to the next phase of cutting and fabrication.  Once the stone & templates have been approved and both reach our location, the cutting and fabrication phase of the project begins. We usually ask for approximately 2 weeks for scheduled installation.

Step 3: Quality Installation

We will schedule & install your finished product with commercial sealants good for a year (lifetime sealer available with extra cost. Please talk to our staff if interested) and perform a precise installation. Our exclusive installation team will make every effort to expedite the installation of your counters. Most installation projects only require approximately 4-6 Hours. We will then request the final 50% of your balance.
