Our teams of experienced installers collect the completed worktops from the works. Whenever possible the same person who templated the worktops will complete the installation.
The worktops are loaded, packed and secured into our fully kitted out vehicles. The templates are also included with the worktops. This allows for a decision should a problem arise during the fitting. The worktops are heavy and require skilled handling. All our operatives are fully trained to handle the worktops in a safe manner.
The fitting of the worktops onto the base units or carcass will be completed in a methodical manner. On many occasions the worktops will require adjustments with shims and packers to allow for both site and manufacture tolerances.
All worktops are secured to the base units with oil-free silicon adhesives. The joints between the worktops will be as tight as practical, allowing for coloured epoxy resin to be used between the granite edges.
Splashbacks are secured to the structure on the back face, with a silicon adhesive joint at the rear of the bottom edge. The joint between the worktop and the front of the splashback is not filled unless specifically requested.
Joints between splashbacks and the wall surfaces are not filled.
All granite worktops are cleaned on completion of fitting. We provide a surface treatment of an impregnator to the granite during fitting.
New installations will often include appliances and we undertake to provide all types of suitable sinks and taps. A range of extras for pan stands within the granite surface can also be supplied.
We will complete all necessary fixing of the sinks to the granite and can arrange plumbing, gas and electrical fitting for hobs, cookers at an additional cost.
For replacement worktops our service includes the complete management of the works. We will co ordinate the plumbing, gas and electric for both disconnection and reconnection. The removal of the existing worktop can be included.
A care and maintenance kit is provided with each granite worktop installation. Full instructions are included and if necessary, guidance can be supplied.
