Excellent selection and service. Wanted to view a slab of Quartz which was stacked behind 20 other slabs, Academy unearthed the slab we were interested in, and it ended up being perfect. Their entire staff is knowledgeable and professional; templating and installation was neat, clean and quick.

This was a positive experience from beginning to end. Sinan was very helpful in getting samples for me and Kristen and the measuring and installation team was professional and courteous. The process was SO QUICK!! Very happy with the result and would definitely recommend Academy

Academy Marble wa incredible to work with. Everything was timely, efficient and the product is beautiful. The team was kind and considerate of us first-time kitchen renovation homeowners. I would highly recommend from the service to the install.

—Rye, NY

I just completed a complex Neolith shower install with Academy Marble and Stone that was difficult every step of the way, for reasons out of our control. Being in the construction industry, I have worked with a lot of stone fabricators over the years. The team at Academy is the best I have ever worked with... and it's not even close. Every person is knowledgeable, accommodating, responsive, and trustworthy. If I could work with Academy every day, I would. I've never had more confidence in a subcontractor.

—Bethel, CT

I had an excellent experience with Academy Marble. Their prices are very reasonable and their inventory is great. We took a tour of the marble slabs in their Rye showroom and worked closely with Betsy, who was very helpful, to ensure we were getting what we wanted. They're detail-oriented, responsive and overall easy to work with. I would highly recommend working with Academy Marble.

Step 1: Selecting Your Outdoor Stone Countertops

When selecting a countertop material for your outdoor space, there are a few important considerations to keep in mind. Unlike indoor kitchen and bathroom applications, outdoor countertops are more susceptible to dirt and damage due to weather, specifically with harsh New England winters. Choosing a material known for durability and longevity should be first priority. And in this case, your preferred design aesthetics come second.

Because of their durability, natural stone countertops are best for outdoor spaces. “With so many natural stones to choose from, which is the best material for my outdoor space?” you may ask. The answer: quartzite. Both of these natural stones are:

    • Able to stand up well to outdoor elements
    • Resistant to fading and heat
    • Not easily chipped, scratched or etched
    • Resistant to mold and mildew when properly sealed

With quartzite stone, you’re not only getting the benefit of long-lasting durability, you’re also able to choose from a wide array of colors, textures and patterns.  Quartz, a man-made stone, is not recommended for outdoor use. When exposed to UV rays, manufactured resins found in quartz may fade over time, causing the color of the countertop to gradually change.

Step 2: Outdoor Countertop Fabrication

After you select your stone surface, we move on to the templating process during which we
we take the exact measurements of your surfaces to insure that it is cut with precision. In order for us to template, you’ll need to have selected your other outdoor kitchen components, such as grills, cooktops and sinks. These components will need to be present at the time of templating, though they do not need to be installed. The team at Academy Marble will take your existing sink and any other large plumbing fixtures to the factory for measurements. Smaller fixtures, such as a faucet, are cut on the day of installation and are not needed to begin templating.

After a stone material is selected and templated, our team begins the stone fabrication process. One of the benefits you’ll experience when partnering with Academy Marble, is that all of our stone work, from selection to fabrication, is completed in house. This lets you enjoy the convenience and efficiency of working with a single provider, instead of dealing with multiple vendors.

Step 3: Outdoor Countertop Installation

This process, from templating to installation, takes our team at Academy Marble 7 days or less*, while it may take competitors in the area weeks or even up to a month to complete.  Before this day, our team will prep you on what needs to be done to your outdoor space before our arrival. This ensures a speedy and seamless countertop installation. After installation is complete, a plumber can come in and make the water connection to all of your outdoor sinks and faucets.

* Project completion time subject to change based on stone inventory, the complexity of the job and availability. A deposit is required to secure or hold the selected stone. All items that go on the cabinets (sinks, faucets, cooktops and accessories) need to be selected before templating can begin. Please contact us here if you have any questions or concerns.
