Worktop Installation Questions

Some of our frequently asked questions

Do you cut and fabricate the granite in your factory ?

Yes. We have a large team of skilled masons and fabricators. All the work is done by us in our factory

Can I see the samples of granite that I have selected?

Yes. The templating team will have a range of samples including the one that you have selected with them when they came to template or you can visit our showroom

How long does it take from templating to fitting ?

It will usually take under normal circumstances five working days to the delivery and fitting of worktops

Can the walls be plastered after templating

No. This should be done before templating and the tiling after fitting. If it is done between templating and installation it will alter the measurements for the final fitting.

Do I need to be there when the work is being done?

Yes. It is important that you are there to answer any questions that might arise. At the templating stage the postion of any joins will have to be agreed with you so at the fitting stage you will be totally satisfied with the finished result.

Do existing worktops need to be removed before templating?

Yes. We template directly on top of the units. You can place back the old worktops onto the units after we have templated until the fitter comes to install the new granite worktops.If you wish us to remove them please arrange this prior to templating by contacting the office for a quote.

What do I need to do prior to templating ?

To enable us to template your worktop or vanity unit the following information must be adhered to. Your co-operation will be much appreciated.

: All existing worktops must be removed.

: All sinks, hobs and taps to be removed. We do not provide this service.

: It is important that base units are fixed in their final position and that they are perfectly level.

: New appliances such as sinks,hob,taps etc, must be available for the templater to check for measurements,as cut out dimensions will not necessarily provide enough information for accurate postioning.

: Cookers such as Aga, Rayburn and all heavy range cookers must be fixed in their final position before templating.
