About Us

I am Link Buckles, owner of Countertops by Design. I started the business in 2003. During the past 19 years the business has seen continual growth requiring 3 moves. The location purchased in 2015 at 1483 Hwy 27 Westby, Wisconsin  provides our team with the space needed to expand our operation. We pride ourselves on being big enough to meet your needs, while small enough to know you.

In the Westby area we are surrounded by multiple cabinet builders who do beautiful high quality work at an affordable price. We work closely not only with these local craftsman but many others in the tristate area to ensure timely installs for your project.

Our Process from Start to Finish

Stop in or email your project dimensions to caseyh.cbd@gmail.com. We will get you an estimate of cost within 1-2 days. If doing the initial measurements for your estimate is a concern, we will come to your home and assist with that.

A visit to our showroom is the perfect starting point to help you in selecting your material type, color, and finish. We will explain the many options for backsplashes and edging to create a finished product exactly as you want. If our showroom hours don't work for you, we are happy to set up additional times. We also do free in-home consultation, bringing samples to help guide you with decisions. Our goal is to make this important selection process enjoyable and relaxing for you.

We now have all our remnants on line. Just click on the remnant tab above on the right to see pictures and dimensions. These remnants work great for smaller areas such as vanities, bars, outdoor areas, and laundries.

Once material has been selected and you have chosen us to do your work, a 50% deposit is required to get material ordered or tagged.

Next step is getting templating completed. Once your project is ready, we will come to your home or business for the official measurement. For this to occur, all cabinets need to be installed and leveled. Sink decisions made, ordered, and available if not purchased from us. Traditional Apron/farmer sinks should be installed by your carpenter prior to our templating. We also carry a retro farm sink that gives you the look of the apron sink with out the expense of changing cabinet door height. Cooktop specs should also be available at this time.

When we begin fabrication of your material, we need your sink if purchasing your own and your cooktop specs to be at our shop. Its ideal to have you send them back at the time we template.

Once we begin the fabrication, with granite selections, many of our customers enjoy collaborating with the fabricator on just how best to lay out of the granite to get maximum design satisfaction.

After your material is fabricated, our finishing technicians then apply a 15 year STAIN-PROOF sealer to all granite. We are then ready for installation.

Our goal is to install 3-4 weeks after we do the template. We will set up a time that meets your needs for our trained installers to complete the installation. All work is done by our employees.
