You might ask “Isn’t it possible to just move the granite slab, find a replacement for the cabinets, and just the slab in its original place?” Well, there are times that customers become wary of refacing. That is understandable. However, you must consider the fact that refacing can actually provide the same effect of brand new cabinets in a short span of time, without any hassles, and with a reasonable price.
The thing you must be concerned with is moving the granite slab the moment it has been installed; this can cause the slab to break which could also result in additional expenses. Once they have been damaged, chipped, or cracked, it is impossible to fix those granite slabs. In the process of separating the slabs from the cabinet, one must be very careful since it is an almost impossible job to do. Through separation, the granite might be at risk. Aside from that, your manufacturer’s warranty might be void once you try to remove your granite. That is a big no-no.
