Our Process



axton Countertops brings professionalism and integrity to every project. With over 40 years of experience in fabricating and installing countertops and showers. Residential and commercial businesses all throughout Mid-Michigan turn to Paxton Countertops. That’s because our family-owned and operated business is committed to building a legacy one countertop at a time.


During the initial phases, Paxton will spend time getting to know you and understanding your needs. We will also introduce you to Paxton’s Points of Excellence, the standards that set us apart and guides every project we undertake. Whether you are interested in new countertops, showers or both, one of our trained team members will take note of every detail and offer guidance on materials, design and more. After that, we will help you find the products that fit perfectly within your budget and style preferences.



A great final product in the countertop world begins with an accurate template, but, most people don’t realize there is a lot that goes into a making an accurate template.  At Paxton Countertops, we use the most advanced systems to create the pattern that is the starting point of your countertop.  This is called “Digital templating”.

Utilizing digital templating, we capture the geometry of installed cabinets as well as any walls that the countertops would touch.  This digital file that we capture is then manipulated, creating desired overhangs, radii, sink cut outs, or whatever will make the tops fit your lifestyle.

At Paxton Countertops, we understand that technology is only as good as the person using it.  Our skilled templators have the experience needed in the production of countertops to spot the potential pitfalls and problems that accompany any project.

Before we can do a template, we MUST have all the cabinets in place and screwed to the wall. If you are just replacing the tops and keeping your old cabinets, please clear the tops off so that we have a nice empty surface and can ensure that nothing interferes with the template.

The template begins with an introduction and review of the project notes.  You will have questions at the template.  The templator will need someone to make decisions on site.  This will keep the job moving into Paxton Production.


Once all the measurements have been taken and the specifications are finalized, we’ll create a template and begin fabricating the countertops right here at the Paxton facility. This process varies depending on which materials you’ve selected, but we’ll complete all the work ourselves no matter what. We never work with subcontractors to ensure your complete satisfaction with your project from start to finish.  And should questions arise, our team will be there to help every step of the way.


When the final product is finished, our professional installers will put together your new kitchen, vanity, bar or shower. Using only the highest quality parts and hardware, plus lab-matched adhesive to cover counter seams, your new room will be complete in no time.

Because Paxton is accredited by the Marble Institute of America (MIA), the International Surface Fabricators Association (ISFA) and the Artisan Group, you can feel confident in our technical skills and ability to deliver high-quality service. And for us, quality assurance means stopping by even after the install is over to make sure that your seams are still looking great and that all work has been completed to your standards.
