Advice & Guidance

Samples and Materials

Browse our extensive range of samples from our suppliers and discuss your requirements. We have a large selection of exotic natural stone slabs in our yard which at least can offer a source of inspiration. Alternatively browse our online stone colour galleries or contact us through our form


Material Thickness

Standard edge profiles such as 'bevel' or 'pencil' are effective on any thickness, if you are considering something a little more, the thickness of your worktop will be more important. It is possible that additional stone can be joined to your surface to allow an elaborate edge. Most stone slabs are available in 12, 20 or 30mm thicknesses


Consider the details such as upstands, splash-backs and under-sill sections to compliment new windowsills. All in the same stone will make your kitchen flow, and if you have chosen a marbled or patterened worktop - and providing you have sufficient material, we can ensure that the pattern flows through too.

Templating Service


Our trained surveyors will visit to make final measurements prior to cutting your work surface. Where necessary corex sheeting will be used to aid with templating. Any last features that need to be added must be discussed with the technician at this time, such as rounded corners on a breakfast bar or holes cut for pop-up sockets.

Worktop Preparations

Yourself or a representative should be on site, and any plastering work should be completed. Base units / end panels and any additional supports must be installed and level where required. New Sinks, hobs and taps must be on site. Existing hobs, taps & worktops must be disconnected.

Important Note

All your worktops are bespoke and tailored to fit your specifications, and measurements taken during templating. Any changes to the position or in the case of additional units added to your kitchen after templating or during fabrication that affects the installation or the material requirement may incur additional charges. It must be understood that once the stone has been cut it cannot be uncut!

Worktop Fabrication


We fabricate all or our natural Stone and composite surfaces from slabs either sourced ourselves or from our many suppliers, ready to be installed by our fitters. We are certified and licensed fabricators so you can be sure that your project will be carried out to the highest specification, quickly and efficiently and within agreed and realistic timescales.

Fabrication Process

Fabrication of your natural or composite material will involve several processes all lifted initially by forklift and then from machine to machine by vacuum suction on a crane. Firstly, the stone material is cut into sections according to the dimension recorded during templating by a bridge saw. All straight edges are then polished by an edge polishing machine before loaded onto a CNC machine to make any cut outs, profile edges or bespoke shapes. All the pieces are then carted into another area of our workshop where detail is finished by hand by our experienced stonemasons.


Consumers’ statutory right of cancellation does not apply to orders which are made to measure. The material is non-refundable once cut and as this is a bespoke service the intial 80% deposit which secures the stone, templating and fabrication process will not be refunded.



It is important that parking arrangements for our vehicle is considered. Initially we require our vehicle to be as near as as possible to the entrance which is closest to the location of installation. Once the stone worktops have been unloaded, we will be happy to relocate our vehicle if necessary. As you may understand, both natural stone and composite stones products are extremely heavy. If it is a requirement that we must park off-site after unloading, please provide detail on parking prior to the installation date so that we can make prior arrangements.

Installation Process

Ensure that existing sinks and hobs are disconnected and removed and water, gas and eletricity supplies are isolated at the location of installation. We may require water and electricity during installation so, if possible do not switch off supplies at the mains. The installation team will position worktops, according to the agreed template. Worktops will be siliconed to the units and silicone beading will be applied to the underside of the worktop where it meets the front of the units, all joints are resin glued together. An installation will take approximately 2-3 hours to complete, for larger projects allow a full day.

Additional Support

Undermounted sinks will be fitted to the underside of worktops with silicon, make sure you have arrangements in place to have the water, gas and electric supplies re-connected to appliances. It is advised that with natural stone, quartz, porcelain and ceramic sinks are provided with additional support.


Upon completion we request that the worktop installation is inspected by the client and then the remaining balance is paid in full. Any questions can be answered and advice will be given regarding the ongoing care of your worktops.
