Caring for Each Customer

Our customers have told us that they want a one-stop-shop for their kitchen or light bath renovations. They don’t want to spend weeks on end thinking they are close to finishing their project only to be let down by issues or miscommunicated timelines.

Managing a remodel can take a lot of time and many frustrations can arise. At Capitol Granite Design Center, our team of professionals is dedicated to educating you about the process and to helping you manage your project. We will walk you through everything from selection to installation day. You can trust us to provide you with the highest-quality countertop services in Richmond.

We are a fully digital fabrication shop and use state-of-the-art technologies for a streamlined production process. Your kitchen or bath will be measured using laser precision, resulting in much greater accuracy for the final product. We also offer a rendering program that allows custom layouts to be fed to our machinery. This will give you peace of mind that your project design will meet your expectations. The process you will go through is laid out below.


In our showroom, you will have the opportunity to look at various countertop materials, cabinets, and other accessories with a sales representative, and we’ll discuss your project needs and design options. We’ll gather your contact information, colors/materials of interest, cabinet layout (or planned layout), and timeframe. This is also the perfect time to take a tour of our slab and remnant yard to see and feel materials in person.

Acceptance of Quote

After working with our trained team to choose the surface that’s right for you, we’ll develop an estimate for your project. Upon review of the proposal, you’ll sign a contract which guarantees the template, secures the material, and ensures timely production.


Upon the project being funded, and customer-ready for next phase, an in-home template date will be scheduled. The template is usually scheduled within a few days, depending on volume and availability.


Our skilled template technicians use digital templating for the most precise measurements. With advanced laser technologies, our team is equipped to handle projects of all sizes with accuracy that is unmatched by wood or manual measurement.

Digitize & Revise

Once the template is completed, it is cleaned up with your selections for appliances, faucet holes, and other details in preparation for processing. Changes that affect your scope of work will be mutually agreed upon prior to layout and cutting on the automatic saw jet.


The material has been ordered or allocated from inventory on the yard, and will seamlessly receive a calibrated photo for layout with grading staged for the automatic saw-jet; If a material with movement is chosen, you have the ability to request a couple of different layout options for your approval by e-mail, or customize the layout with our staff (please contact our office for an appointment and applicable cost). Your final approval for custom layout triggers your project to be staged for fabrication, and an install date is agreed upon.


Your project is reviewed again for all the details, including one last material inspection, and machines are now ready to take the reins. Barcodes and scanners keep track of all the components. Your chosen material is meticulously cut using powerful saw blades and water jets that ensure incredible precision and accuracy. Once the cuts are complete, pieces travel through various areas in the shop for precision machined edging, polishing, and refinements prior to a final quality control check. At that time, your project is assembled to ensure excellent quality and color/pattern transition.


On your big day, our installation team will arrive at your location within the timeframe that you specified with our scheduling department. With your space prepared for install, our team of professional installers will safely and securely put your countertops in place and review important information with you regarding how to care for your new surfaces and how to contact us if you should have any issues or questions.


With your new countertops installed, your project has come to life! The striking beauty of these new countertops will surely make a statement for a lifetime. Now, we encourage you to tell others about your experience by leaving us a review on Yelp, Google, or Facebook. Don’t forget to #capitolgranite when posting pics to your friends! We love to hear about our customers’ experiences and see photos of your completed space. We also hope to serve you again in the future!
