Removing Old Counters
We’ll need to start by removing old countertops and other fixtures. We’ll take care of this step for you, so you won’t need to hire out to have them removed. You’ll want to make sure that you have everything off the kitchen counters before we arrive, to make the process faster and easier.
After removing everything, we can get started on installing countertops right away. You’ll also want to make sure that small children and pets aren’t going to be in the area.
The Installation Process
Depending on what types of countertops you’ve chosen, the installation process might look a little bit different. The size of your project can also impact how we handle it. However, we always make sure to take the proper steps while handling everything with the care that it deserves.
Slabs can be cut on or off-site, depending on their sizes. Once done, we’ll put them out on the topless counters, level them, then secure them. Seams are joined with properly colored epoxy or resin, to ensure they are bound together. Because of the adhesive we use to do this, you won’t be able to tell it’s there.
If the cabinets are uneven, we handle that at this stage. We have the tools to create shims to add more support and make the countertops even for you.
Overall, we take our kitchen countertops in Fire Island, NY very seriously. You’re sure to appreciate the amount of effort that we put into creating beautiful designs just for you! We always make sure to handle every step of the process with care as well.
Installing Quartz Counters
Quartz doesn’t need any sealing or waxing since it’s a man-made, non-porous material. We also won’t need to align the seams and use epoxy on them, in a majority of installation projects.
The process for quartz is very simple, so you can trust that it won’t take very long. We follow the basic guide we outlined above every time for this material. However, there are some additional steps you’ll want to know about for some of the other materials we have for sale.
Installing Marble Countertops
We’ll carry in the marble- it’s extremely heavy and we don’t want you to hurt yourself lifting it! We’ll often have multiple sections that we connect together since it’s such a heavy material.
Once we’re finished, we’ll then need to seal the marble countertops. This material is a natural stone, so it’s a bit porous. Because of that, the stone can stain easily- the sealant prevents this from happening.
You’ll need to have us come by each year and reseal the marble for you. We’ll also make sure to offer you plenty of tips on how to keep the marble looking its very best! It does take more maintenance than quartz counters, but the results you get with this material are always stunning and beautiful in any space.
Overall, installing countertops made of marble, or other natural stones takes a lot longer than working with a man-made material. It’s a lot heavier, so you can expect us to arrive with more, smaller slabs. We always make sure to handle your new kitchen countertops with care!
Why You Should Choose Us
We’re very familiar with the installation process for countertops and have done this many times over the years we’ve been open. We have a vast amount of experience and always do our best to ensure that the customer is satisfied with the final results.
When you choose the other guys, you might not be getting the same level of care. Creative Stone & Cabinets handles all of our slabs with respect and ensures that everything’s installed properly the first time. On top of all that, we always offer our clients the best possible customer service.

Fire Island is the large center island of the outer barrier islands parallel to the south shore of Long Island, New York.
Though it is well established that indigenous Native Americans occupied what are today known as Long Island and Fire Island for many centuries before Europeans arrived, there has existed a long-standing myth that Long Island and nearby Fire Island were occupied by ‘thirteen tribes’ ‘neatly divided into thirteen tribal units, beginning with the Canarsie who lived in present-day Brooklyn and ending with the Montauk on the far eastern end of the island.’ Modern ethnographic research indicates, however, that before the European invasion, Long Island and Fire Island were occupied by ‘indigenous groups […] organized into village systems with varying levels of social complexity. They lived in small communities that were connected in an intricate web of kinship relations […] there were probably no native peoples living in tribal systems on Long Island until after the Europeans arrived. […] The communities appear to have been divided into two general culture areas that overlapped in the area known today as the Hempstead Plains […]. The western groups spoke the Delaware-Munsee dialect of Algonquian and shared cultural characteristics such as the longhouse system of social organization with their brethren in what is now New Jersey and Delaware. The linguistic affiliation of the eastern groups is less well understood […] Goddard […] concluded that the languages here are related to the southern New England Algonquian dialects, but he could only speculate on the nature of these relationships […]. Working with a few brief vocabulary lists of Montauk and Unquachog, he suggested that the Montauk might be related to Mohegan-Pequot and the Unquachog might possibly be grouped with the Quiripi of western Connecticut. The information on the Shinnecock was too sparse for any determination […] The most common pattern of indigenous life on Long Island prior to the intervention of the whites was the autonomous village linked by kinship to its neighbors.’
‘Most of the ‘tribal’ names with which we are now familiar do not appear to have been recognized by either the first European observers or by the original inhabitants until the process of land purchases began after the first settlements were established. We simply do not know what these people called themselves, but all the ethnographic data on North American Indian cultures suggest that they identified themselves in terms of lineage and clan membership. […] The English and Dutch were frustrated by this lack of structure because it made land purchase so difficult. Deeds, according to the European concept of property, had to be signed by identifiable owners with authority to sell and have specific boundaries on a map. The relatively amorphous leadership structure of the Long Island communities, the imprecise delineation of hunting ground boundaries, and their view of the land as a living entity to be used rather than owned made conventional European real estate deals nearly impossible to negotiate. The surviving primary records suggest that the Dutch and English remedied this situation by pressing cooperative local sachems to establish a more structured political base in their communities and to define their communities as ‘tribes’ with specific boundaries […] The Montauk, under the leadership of Wyandanch in the mid-seventeenth century, and the Matinnecock, under the sachems Suscaneman and Tackapousha, do appear to have developed rather tenuous coalitions as a result of their contact with the English settlers.’
‘An early example of [European] intervention into Native American political institutions is a 1664 agreement wherein the East Hampton and Southampton officials appointed a sunk squaw named Quashawam to govern both the Shinnecock and the Montauk.’
