How long does it take to fabricate a stainless steel countertop?

Stainless steel countertops are designed, fabricated, polished, and mounted on a wood substrate right at our Mississauga, Ontario manufacturing plant. In many circumstances site measurements must be taken in order to achieve optimum results. For complicated shapes and sizes, it is best to use a wooden template. Once we have this wooden template we can extract the dimensions and create the stainless steel top to fit. This is referred to as cladding.

Fabrication times for a stainless steel countertop depend on many factors. These factors are shape, size, sinks, and finished edges. Below find estimated fabrication times for typical stainless steel countertops:
  • Rectange Shape (Less Than: 130" Long x 40" Wide)  -  1 Week Lead Time
  • 'L' Shape  -  2-3 Weeks Lead Time
  • 'U' Shape  -  3-5 Weeks Lead Time
  • Radius (Curved) Shape  -  3-5 Weeks Lead Time

Note: Estimated lead times do not include taking of site measurements, delivery, or installation.
