Question DetailsAsked on 8/22/2017

Can the front side of cook top hole be cut to allow for slide in range?

I recently purchased a home with a cook top placed in the center of the granite counter. There are cabinets (2) underneath, but no oven. I need for the front side of the hole cut for the cook top to be cut, removed and finished to allow for a slide-in range. Who's best to do it and what should the price range be?

Yes - and if only the front edge, no widening of the opening for the new range, can usually be done on-site without taking out any countertop. I EMPHATICALLY recommend having a stone countertop contractor do the cutting, because you don't get a second chance if it is broken, chipped, or cut crooked. Countertops is the Search the List category for this.

If cabinets need widening or the fronts cut out (other than at a naturla joint between cabients which can just be opened up by removing the fastening screws), you might want a Cabinet contractor who also does stone countertops routinely (sometimes advertised as a Kitchen Finishes contractor or Kitchen Center), or if unable to find an all-in-one contractor with good ratings and reviews, then a Remodeling - Kitchen and Bath contractor with your approval on who the sub to cut the countertop is going to be.
