SHOWROOM FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS A FABRICATOR?
Fabricators are specialized subcontractors who utilize specific processes and equipment to create the finished, final installed countertop. They provide their labor and time to template, cut, fabricate, and install the slabs you select in our showrooms. If you are working with a trade professional, such as a general contractor, interior designer, or architect, they may already have a specialized fabricator they utilize to cut their slabs.
IS A FABRICATOR NEEDED TO PURCHASE MATERIAL FROM T&M?
Yes. Do not worry if you don’t have a fabricator assigned to your project; we can recommend a local fabricator to help assist you with your quote. We do not provide installation services or pricing for your project.
HOW DOES PRICING WORK?
Your fabricator will provide final pricing on all materials. As mentioned, they price out labor and time to template, cut, fabricate, and install the slabs you select in our showrooms. The materials in our showrooms and warehouses use a scale of 1 to 10 to illustrate the cost associated with that specific material. Our showroom representatives will work closely with you during your appointment to help clarify any pricing questions.
WHAT TYPES OF MATERIAL DO YOU CARRY?
T&M is proud to source the highest quality natural stone secured from quarries around the world. Our diverse stone team has established generational relationships with quarry owners for over 75 years, providing us 1st selection of the highest quality stone blocks.
These include marble, quartzite, granite, soapstone, limestone & specialty stones. We also supply engineered slabs, or manufactured, featuring quartz, porcelain, and our Precioustone Collection. We carry premium hard surface brands, including DIFINITI, Diresco, Antolini, Vermont Danby, and more.
HOW LONG IS MATERIAL HELD FOR?
T&M Supply will hold material at no charge for 30 days from the original day we tag your designated materials. We do understand that projects can experience delays, so we also offer 30-day extensions to your material holds at a cost of $300. Please be aware that the $300 is not applied to the material total, it is a separate storage fee. We encourage you to discuss this policy with your fabricator.
