Can I come and choose the granite?
We advise customers to request a photo of the slab of granite due to the natural variation in colour and pattern. We can also advise of a link to our suppliers website where you can choose and we can reserve the specific slab of granite you require.
What is the thickness of granite and quartz worktops?
Most granite and quartz work surfaces are available in 20mm and 30mm in thickness. We can make up to 40mm by putting a 20mm down stand on a 20mm worktop. Most worktops are manufactured in 30mm and the 20mm is usually used for upstands and backsplashes. We are now able to fabricate quartz in 12mm.
Do you send samples or can I take them away?
We can offer a bespoke service where we can deliver samples to your home. You can keep these whilst you make your decision.
When you give me a quote do I pay for waste material?
When we quote you, from your plan or drawing you only pay for the material used. This keeps costs to a minimum, you are not charged for wastage or offcuts.
What needs to be done before you come to template?
All sinks and hobs need to be on site. If you are having an undermounted sink this should come with a manufacturers template. This should be available and given to our templater. All base units need to be fitted and fixed in their final position. They should be fixed to each other where applicable as well as to the wall. The units need to be level. Any plastering should be done before templating. It should definitely not be done in-between templating and the installation of your work top. Tiling should be done after your worktops have been fitted.
Do I need to be present when you come, template and fit?
We advise customers to be present. This ensures your work tops are manufactured and installed to your exact requirements.
Do I need to seal my granite worktops?
Granite worktops are sealed at manufacture and upon installation. Care of your worktops and maintenance instructions are left with you once installation is complete. Theses guidelines have been developed with you in mind to ensure that you get maximum enjoyment from your worktop whether it is granite or quartz.
