Did you know that Wobble Wedges is a family owned business? Yes, in fact Wobble Wedges has been in the family for 30+ years, but still, we never get tired of hearing success stories from our happy customers. People are constantly finding new, creative ways to use Wobble Wedges to shore up the wiggles and wobbles in their lives. One happy customer recently reported back that Wobble Wedges are the perfect solution for installing level custom stone countertops. Here is what Greg, the owner of Grasso Stone & Glass, based out of Steamboat Springs, Colorado had to share about using Wobble Wedges to install perfectly level stone countertops.
Precision Required for High-End Custom Stone Countertop Installs
Working and living in Steamboat Springs, Colorado means that Grasso Stone is frequently installing custom stone countertops of extremely high end clients, visiting some of the most incredible custom luxury mountain homes in the area. Whether it is for a new build or a home improvement renovation, Grasso’s clients demand nothing but the best. This starts with the stone slabs that Greg sources for his work. Stone slabs can cost tens of thousands of dollars based on the specific stone type, quality, and size of the slab. Greg hand cuts all of his stone slabs in his shop before taking them out to client’s homes. These stones, which might look perfect to the naked eye, actually contain small natural imperfections that can cause the stone to rock or sit uneven when placed on the wooden kitchen cabinets.
Shimming the Gap with Wobble Wedges
Before discovering Wobble Wedges, Greg often used miscellaneous things from his toolbox to help shim these small gaps and imperfections between the stone and the wooden countertop. Even using at times broken pieces of razor blades to help shore up extremely small micro-gaps. Not anymore! Now armed with the Wobble Wedge Shop Shim Variety Pack Greg can choose any Wobble Wedge size that works well for the project at hand. The flexible plastic Wobble Wedge shims can be trimmed down to any size, shimming even micro-gaps between the stone countertop and the wooden cabinet bases.
“I like that rigid Wobble Wedges do not compress under the weight of the stone countertops and that they come in clear and black. They hide easily and are not absorbent if they get wet, which is an issue with wooden shims,” Greg said. “They also do not break off when being moved in or out, which can be another issue with wooden shims.”
When asked, Greg said he had found uses for all of the shims in his Wobble Wedge Shop Shim Variety Pack. As for his customers? They are none the wiser that their perfect custom stone countertops are being held in place by plastic Wobble Wedge shims. Wobble Wedges can support up to 2,000 lbs and will never slip out of place, expand, or rot when exposed to the moisture so common in kitchens and bathrooms. Anyone delivering high-end custom stone countertops should make sure they have a variety pack of Wobble Wedges in their toolbox.
