When measuring for new or replacement countertops, it is imperative that the dimensions be as accurate as possible. Details such as wall squareness, end treatments, and end splash should be noted carefully. 
Replacing Existing Countertops
If the countertops are being replaced without any changes to the layout, then you can simply measure the existing countertops. 

1. Measure the total length of each piece of the countertop along the back where the countertop meets the wall. Measure the width of each piece of countertop. Include any backsplash dimensions within your measurements. Measure each additional piece of countertop, taking care to measure to the nearest 1/8". 

  2. For islands and bar tops: For islands measure the length and width of the countertop and indicate square, radius or diagonal corners. For bar tops measure the width and the length from the wall to the end of the bar top. Indicate size of sweep or radius if required. 

Verify 90 Degree Corners
Where two walls meet behind countertop, it is important to verify that they are at a 90 degree angle. On one wall measure 3 ft. from the corner and on the adjoining wall measure 4 ft. from the corner. Mark these positions carefully. Measure the diagonal between the two points. This distance should be 5 ft. (60") for a 90 degree corner. If your measurement is less than 59 3/4" or more than 60 1/4" make sure you note this on your measurements. 

Measure dimensions A-B and C-D. Make sure you include the backsplash depth. Also include measurements 1-2, 3-4.

End Finishes
- Specify the type of end finish including necessary raidus or angle dimensions.

NOTE: Indicate whether the countertop requires Build-up.
