We generally schedule the installation after we’ve templated your cabinets and reconciled for any changes made during the template appointment and after the countertop material has been delivered to our warehouse.
We require that the stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher be disconnected and moved out of the way. We require that the plumbing be disconnected unless you are contracting us to do your plumbing disconnect and tear out of your existing countertops.
As long as the material is not backordered, we can generally install within two weeks. Please plan for an additional week to two weeks for outlying geographic areas.

When choosing Full Height Backsplash, I’m concerned about my outlets. They don’t come out that far, what do I do?
When we come out to install your Full Height Backsplash, our installers will pull the outlet through the cutout in the backsplash. It is up to you, the customer, to remove the outlet covers ahead of time and then reinstall them following the Full Height Backsplash installation. There are a few tips that we can give to you, the customer, to make this easier. You will first need longer screws, if your backsplash material is 3cm, you will need at least 1.5” – 2” screws. For 2cm material, you will need 1” – 1.5” screws. While it is not required, spacers are also recommended. These are found at places like Home Depot or Amazon. Accent Countertops is not licensed for electrical work. Our installers will not be able to do anything but pull the outlet through the opening.
