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 Huntington, 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.

The Town of Huntington is one of ten towns in Suffolk County, New York, United States. Founded in 1653, it is located on the north shore of Long Island in northwestern Suffolk County, with Long Island Sound to its north and Nassau County adjacent to the west. Huntington is part of the New York metropolitan area. As of the 2010 United States census, the town population was 203,264.
In 1653, three men from Oyster Bay, Richard Holbrook, Robert Williams and Daniel Whitehead, purchased a parcel of land from the Matinecock tribe. This parcel has since come to be known as the ‘First Purchase’ and included land bordered by Cold Spring Harbor on the west, Northport Harbor on the east, what is now known as Old Country Road to the south and Long Island Sound to the north. The three men immediately turned the land over to the settlers who had already been living there.
George Bradford Brainerd Street, 1907
George Bradford Brainerd Street, ca. 1872–1887
From that initial settlement, Huntington grew over subsequent years to include all of the land presently comprising the modern Towns of Huntington and Babylon. The southern part of the town was formally separated to create Babylon in 1872.
Because Huntington was populated largely by English settlers, unlike the rest of the New Amsterdam colony, the town voted in 1660 to become part of the Connecticut colony rather than remain under the authority of New Amsterdam. It was not until the British gained control of New Amsterdam in 1664 (renaming it New York) that Huntington was formally restored to the jurisdiction of New York.
