Apartment and Multi Unit
Information and FAQs
These are some of the common questions and issues we see come up on multi-unit projects
We stock 2cm quartz in five colors and multiple tones. Because we stock these slabs here in Wilsonville they will be the most cost effective choice
The most common cabinet issues we see that will prevent us from installing countertops are cabinets, pony walls or raised bars that are not flat and level.
Our installers will need a place close to the building to park their vehicles. They will also need a plan if the unit is not on the ground floor.
New ADA requirements are more often requiring a 24″ deep countertop which will require a minimum sink width of 15″.
We will need at least two scheduled dates, template and install. We will measure the space at the template appointment. After the countertops have been fabricated we will come back and install the countertops.
Sometimes(need to explain when this is needed?) the countertops do require buildup or subdecking. This will need to be in place and ready for the template appointment
We only use reputable companies for our products to be sure all materials, customers and contractors are safe. Not all countertop companies are the same. Some will try to cut corners and costs to get your business and this potentially could be harmful to you. We do not import or use a third party to import any Chinese quartz. This may increase our costs slightly but it’s worth it to us.

We have been installing apartments in the Portland area for the last 35 years. We have completed over 100,000 apartment units in that time span. We are not the experts in everything, but we are the experts in countertops for apartments and retirement homes.
2cm Quartz Color Options
Precision stocks a large amount of quartz inventory. For multi-unit projects, we offer five 2cm quartz colors that we stock in our Wilsonville facility. This offers the most cost effective stone options as well as faster installation turnaround times.
We can do 2 edge options with quartz countertops. One is a 2cm 3/4″ eased edge, the other option is a mitered 1 1/2″ drop edge. The miter involves a lot of fabrication and can add up to $500 cost per unit. Most of the units we do, are simply a 2cm eased edge.

Sinks can be a big part of the success or challenge of a countertop project. Normally, we do not provide sinks for a multi unit project. We really recommend a top mount sink for most apartments. They are very easy to replace if needed. Precision will cut the hole for the top mount sinks, but we do not install them.
A tip to make sinks easier. Try to use sinks like the ones in the images that have the faucet mounting built into the sinks themselves and not the actual countertop. This makes it much easier to install the faucet and also you do not need to worry about us drilling holes in the quartz stone. If we have to drill the faucet holes there can be issues with the location of those holes, which faucet and also, especially in a bathroom sink, it could not leave enough room with the backsplash.
