Quartz worksurfaces are made from 93% quartz and the remaining 7% polymer resin. Quartz has the look and feel of granite but provides a much more consistent and solid colour for your kitchen worktop, without the need for periodic sealing or polishing. Quartz worktops are engineered stone that is both beautiful and elegant with attributes of natural stone with enhanced colours and impact including mirror flecks, natural stone appearances and modern concrete colour options.
Quartz worksurfaces not only look very attractive and exude quality; they are designed to withstand the rigours of everyday use.
Quartz is a naturally beautiful, durable and hygienic surface material; it is characterised by superior strength and durability. Building on its natural quartz core, it has exceptional strength and toughness, making it resistant to impact and difficult to scratch, chip, crack or dull. This durability means that with routine care, it will retain its ultra smooth, lustrous looks for many years. Like all fine materials, Quartz responds best when handled with care and attention. Exceptionally hard and cool to the touch Quartz is also non-porous and stain resistant making it thoroughly hygienic and easy to maintain.
Quartz worktops and backsplash depth
For kitchens 20 and 30mm, is recommended for worktops. The 20mm is a good thickness for backsplashes and thresholds, though tough each space is different, the application should 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 pre-approve the templates and actually lay them out on the quartz 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 quartz they want to use.
Look at several slabs before choosing.
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.
Do you sell directly to the public?
Yes, we supply all kinds of worktops including white quartz worktops. By doing so we can ensure you get the best service and price. By cutting out the middleman and passing the savings on to you.
What must I have on site when you arrive to do the templating?
Before the survey, you need to ensure all cabinets are level, have sufficient braces and are secure firmly to the wall. Make sure you know the final location of the sinks, hobs, taps and any other fittings required with your white quartz countertops and have these available on site. Please ensure after the survey cabinets are not moved as the measurements taken during the survey are crucial for a perfect worktop installation. Any changes after the survey will cause significant delays and incur extra charges.
Can we plaster the walls after you have templated?
No, this needs to be done before the templating. Tiling should be done after the white quartz worktops are installed.
How long from the templating will it take to fit my worktops?
We normally deliver and fit white quartz worktops within 4-10 working days from the survey.(7 day from sale to fit on certain occasions, call for details)
How accurate is an online quote?
