    From templates to installation in five days

     

    Once you’ve chosen your stone, templating and installation can take as little as 5 days. As professional stoneworkers, at Surrey Marble and Granite we’re able to create a template, manufacture your stone worktop, polish and finish the stone, then install it.

    A five step process

    1. You choose your stone and we get it delivered, if it’s not in stock.
    2. Our project managers liaise with you and your kitchen installers/builders to find the right time to deliver your new surfaces.
    3. We visit your house to create a precise template of your new stone worktop.
    4. We use high-tech tools to shape and finish your stone.
    5. Five days after the template was created, we’re ready to install.

    Thanks to our professional staff and state-of-the-art equipment, we’re able to offer a quick turn around without affecting the quality of our product. We’re proud to supply the best stone worktops we can, and for this reason we won’t skip essential steps or cut corners.

    You set the schedule

    Our 5-day turnaround means that you can set the schedule. We will work with other tradespeople to ensure that your kitchen or bathroom renovation goes as smoothly and painlessly as possible. If all goes to plan, you may only experience a few days of chaos before having years of enjoyment, fun and laughter in your new space.

    What is templating, and why is it essential?

    A counter needs to fit into a space with millimetre precision. Holes for a sink or taps must also be absolutely accurate. When you’re carving a granite worktop from a slab that weighs more than a healthy adult, getting it right is essential. The best kitchen worktop manufacturers work from templates, carefully constructed models of the worktop space, not just measurements. Templates improve the accuracy and fit, reduce errors and wastage and, as a result, make it possible for us to custom make and deliver a perfectly-fitting stone worktop in less than a week.

    What are the most common delays?

    The main hold up in fitting a stone worktop is often getting the stone delivered. As each slab of natural stone is unique, to ensure consistency each part of your kitchen or bathroom should be made from the same batch. This means that if we have 80% of the stone you need, we still can’t necessarily get started. Other companies are also outside our control. If your units are late or building work runs over, we may not be able to install the worktop on schedule. If your new marble or granite worktop is part of a larger renovation, our project managers will liaise with the companies involved to ensure that we’re able to do our bit on time.

    Once the stone has arrived and the units are in, then yes – it really does take just 5 days!

    A typical kitchen in today’s household has – since at least the early twentieth century – comprised a continuous kitchen worktop surface punctuated with elements such as sinks and perhaps spaces for appliances. Beneath the kitchen worktop you will usually find base structures that comprise cabinets, shelves and drawers. You may also have other features and elements, such as an “island” in the middle of the kitchen, similarly comprising a kitchen worktop with cabinetry beneath it, or a breakfast bar – also comprised of a similar surface to the standard […]
