Natural stone is beautiful and many options have movement and veining. Making sure focal points are accented while assuring seam placement was always a concern, which is why MGT invented vein match technology.
Our patented vein-matching technology creates a virtual layout of matched seams before we make a cut. This allows you to map and adjust your slabs to ensure that it is placed exactly how you would like it. It lets us create precise, creative, and unique projects while reducing waste and being cost-effective. We offer seam matching at no additional cost on all of our projects.
Natural stones feature lines known as veins. These lines give your stone an elegant, organic feel and are one of the most desirable aspects of natural stone. Veining can be dramatic and colorful or more subtle and paler. We use vein matching to ensure that two different slabs appear to be one continue slab, with veins that match each other.
In our vein matching process, we combine and superimpose a digital image of your exact slabs, the laser optic measure from your home, and the CAD drawing of your precise layout, which allows us to determine the best possible outcome for seam matching. We design your area precisely on the slabs so that you can see exactly where stone movement and veins will flow, including how they will interact with your focal points, island, backsplash, and cutouts. We can even pull those pieces off the image so you can see how seams will match up in your kitchen when we come to install. This high-tech process creates as little waste as possible, which is good for the environment and good for your budget!
This incredible technology puts MGT Stone at the top of the industry in Chicagoland. Our pricing is competitive because we waste very little material and go above and beyond what any designer could imagine. We are committed to providing the highest quality vein matching so that you can enjoy your countertop or custom stone piece for decades to come. All of this is done digitally, with the option of your input, before any material is cut to ensure that your stone is exactly how you want it.
