It is recommended to consult with a licensed plumber who specializes in plumbing installations to ensure proper and safe reconnection of your plumbing fixtures after the countertop installation.

However, the ideal height for countertops can vary depending on factors such as the height of the persons using the space, your ergonomic needs, and any specific requirements or preferences.

The need for sealing countertops depends on the material. Natural stone countertops typically require sealing every 1 to 3 years. Engineered stone and solid surface countertops are non-porous and generally do not require sealing.
