Granite, Marble and Quartz Kitchen Worktops
More and more people are choosing to install granite worktops uk in their kitchen. Granite is beautiful, sturdy, long-lasting and hard. Choosing granite to create your worktop will not only add beauty to your home, but value as well.
The benefits of choosing granite worktops are plentiful. For starters, granite is resistant to scratches, stains and heat (in moderation, of course). Granite is a naturally occurring stone formed when magma cools and under a great deal of pressure. Granite is the hardest stone used in construction today and has been used for roofs, floor tiles, worktops and more. Being a natural stone, granite comes in a variety of patterns- swirls, specks, veins and even cracks- each piece of granite is different.
Traditionally granite has been the favourite surface for kitchen worktops, kitchen island units etc, but now we are seeing real interest in the new ranges of engineered quartz stone available such as Quarella.

Granite’s quality is its resistance to almost any invasive action of most substances and implements found in the home. Whether sharp steel knives or standing hot saucepans and kettles, granite resists most wear and tear.
We can treat the surface with a proprietary sealer to reduce the slight ability of granite to absorb liquids. This prevents microscopic droplets of water and other potentially damaging liquids permeating the minute voids between the crystals in the granite rock.Any spillages, especially beetroot, wine, fruit juice, vinegar and cooking oil if hot, should be cleaned up immediately with kitchen roll. The acidity in most of these liquids can eat away at the coating and the polished surface.
We can provide comprehensive granite care kits either with your new kitchen worktop, or for existing units.
Okite Quartz is a new favourite, as well as Caesarstone Quartz. We have a full and comprehensive range of both the traditional marble and granite in many shades and colours as well as the new fashion stones.
