The first thing that you should consider while selecting a fabricator must be its work and experience. Make sure that you see his past projects and for how many years has he been in this field.
Seeing his works will tell you that will he be able to deliver the desired kitchen that you want. The more his experience will be the better it is as experience teaches work.
If the fabricator is near your home, then it will have many advantages. First of alls you will be able to cut down the delivery charges. Then you will be able to visit him and even he can come and take a look at your kitchen easily.

You will be able check references of his work yourself and see that is he upto your expectations.
Ask your fabricator that what will be the cost and how much work time will it take to complete the whole project. Ask at least 3 fabricators in your area and compare and contrast their qualities.
Bargain with the fabricator and choose a fabricator that you think is upto your expectations and completes your project in the least time and money.
You must ask your fabricator that, does he use all the modern tools like digital measuring instruments and CNC stone profiling machine. Using CNC machine cuts down the time and ensures the quality of the work to be deliverd.
Ask the fabricator that does his company gives insurance coverage of workman compensation and business liability. So that if an accident occurs while installing the countertop, then your property will remain secured.
It is important that your fabricator has affiliation from MIA (Marble Institute of America) as MIA sets the quality standards of natural stone fabrication.
