Why you should choose a full service kitchen worktop company

Do you know where your kitchen sink was made? The answer is probably no. If you choose a full-service kitchen worktop company like Surrey Marble and Granite, you’ll know exactly where your kitchen worktop was made. This gives you more control, more flexibility and more choice. All the kitchen worktops that are sold are cut and finished at the Surrey factory and installed by our team.

Why do kitchen worktops need to be bespoke?

Every kitchen is slightly different. Even if you compare buildings built at the same time, they may have walls at slight angles (particularly common in older properties). There are usually sockets and wiring boxes in different places and windows and door placement may vary. As a result, each kitchen worktop has to be made exactly to fit the kitchen it’s ordered for. As stone cannot be trimmed on site, granite companies have to work to a template. The finished product then needs to have millimetre accuracy.

A full service means better quality

At Surrey Marble and Granite, we undertake each step, from quoting through templating to manufacture and installation ourselves. This means that our highly skilled team are on the job at every step – no part-time installation teams who usually deliver pizza, no templating by a kitchen salesperson.

A full service means more choice

Choosing the best for your home or business might mean ordering something no one has ever asked for before. Because we do our own manufacturing, we are able to offer unusual combinations of edges, stones and polishes, as well as shapes that aren’t covered by a standard drop-down selection box. If you’re looking for something unusual, whether you’re making the most of a tiny kitchen or planning a luxurious 50-foot bar for a new 5-star hotel, we can talk you through all the options – including what affects the price – and if it’s not possible, we’ll know.

A full service means more control

Once the stone is delivered from the quarry (we use stone shipped from marble and granite companies around the world) we have full control over the rest of the process, allowing us to go from templating to installation in just 5 days. That means that if we say we’ll install at a certain time, you know we will.

What’s the alternative to full service?

Today, 90% of everything is made overseas and brought to the UK, typically in shipping containers. This means that when you place an order for a new kitchen, for example, with a department store or kitchen specialist, they’ll place orders on your behalf for dozens or hundreds of items, from hinges to door knobs, tiles to sinks. This is fine for off-the-shelf items, as it’s generally straightforward to replace one doorknob with another. However, it can cause real problems with items which need to be bespoke. This includes kitchen worktops, as the company won’t have any control over the manufacturing of the item. This then gives them very limited control over delivery times and correcting mistakes.

  Tiles don’t have to be plain, dull or matching. Both individual decorative tiles and decorative tiling patterns made from plain tiles have been used to make homes and businesses more beautiful since Roman times. In the ruins of Pompeii, you can still see ancient tiles arranged in mosaics, bands of colour and painted with plants and flowers.
