Installing solid-surface countertops requires a high level of skill and special tools, so homeowners should hire a professional to complete the installation. The fabricator generally cuts the pieces so that they fit into the doors and mills the edges, but the installer is responsible for the final cuts and for joining the edges of the material.

Most installers include the preinstallment measurement for the materials. The fee also includes the cost of leveling and shimming the materials to ensure an exact fit, along with cleanup and a final inspection after completing the other parts of the job.

Homeowners who desire a matching backsplash should have the fabricator add it for a seamless installation. The cost of the backsplash is about the same as the cost of the countertop material. Homeowners also pay more for certain types of edging, with fabricators charging by the foot.
