About Granite Worktops

Granite work surfaces are a very popular choice and bring timeless beauty into every kitchen.
Granite is one of the hardest materials on earth, formed millions of years ago beneath the earth's surface.
Worktops made from granite are extemely hard wearing & won't scratch under normal use and are easy to clean & maintain, making them ideal worktops for kitchens and bathrooms.

There are several factors to consider when selecing granite countertops.
The first is choosing a slab of granite (select your slab) that works with your colour scheme and style.
The next is which thickness to use. Slabs generally come in 20mm and 30mm.
Granite worktops and backsplash depth

For kitchens 30mm, is recommended since it is sturdier. The 20mm is a good thickness for backsplashes and thresholds, tough each space is different, the application shoud be the determining factor on which thickness is appropriate.

The edge detail is another area where there are plenty of options ranging from Standard Square with Chamfer to cove Ogee. Besides style, consider the function before making the final selection. The radius of the corners is another consideration, especially on Islands.

Measure & Template

We will work with the homeowner to measure and template before cutting the stones. The homeowner can then preapprove the templates and actually lay them out on the granite slabs if required. This is particularly important especially when you have a material with a lot of movement so the client can determine exactly which portion of the granite they want to use. As the Granite is a natural product,one of the slabs could be different to the other.

Granite Slabs
Look at several slabs before choosing.

Make sure to inspect the actual granite slab before purchasing. Like other natural stone, granite is rarely consistent in colour and design, you you must be sure you can accommodate any changes in colour and patina across the slab. Before sealing the deal, look at a couple of similarly coloured slabs to find the one that perfectly matches your ideal decor.

Once you have your slab it will be reserved for you & transported to our fabrication warehouse, once the template has been signed off the Slab will go into production & become your worktops & islands.
