Both granite and quartz surfaces are relatively low maintenance as worktop surfaces. In most cases, routine cleaning with mild soap and water will keep your worktops looking almost new for a long, long time.
Stone Masters does sell a specialist care kit for granite and for quartz composite stones. The care kits have specially formulated regular cleaning fluids, stain repellent and the granite care kit has a oil/grease remover:
Don’t be fooled by our relatively simple edge profiles on display in our quotation form in the residential section of this website. Stone Masters has been working with architects and designers for over 10 years, and we have produced all manner of stone profiles in the process.
Our machinery is extremely flexible and we have sufficient experience in tooling to achieve most profiles – let your imagination be your limitation... more
There are a fair number of standard stones in the granites, marbles and quartz ranges. However, for those professionals after a less well known or more unique stone, certain skill is required on the part of the masonry company to source the stone.
Sourcing matters to get the right quality, consistency and delivery of the stone. Architects specifying a particular stone for a project should consider all of these aspects before finalising on their choice. It is no good... more
Featured Case Study - Summer 2010
“I was very impressed with the final result given that we changed our minds between granite and quartz worktops a thousand times...”
Mr & Mrs Kojima came to Stone Masters looking for an impossibly high priced quartz stone, but they had a strict budget...
One of our experienced templaters will come to your home and use our laser templating equipment to take an electronic template of your granite worktops or quartz worktops. We use these electronic templates to make accurate drawings of your worktops which we send you for approval before cutting them.
Following the electronic template of your kitchen, Stone Masters will send you detailed drawings of your granite worktops or quartz worktops so that you see exactly what you are getting. We don't expect you to double check the measurements (that's our job), but it's a great opportunity to make changes before we cut the stone (e.g. drainer grooves on other side of sink, change overhangs, etc...). Our 3D drawings allow you to fully visualise your stone worktops.
Take advantage of our vein matching software if you have a heavily-veined granite worktop such as Juperana Colombo. We can change the layout to how you want it.
What's the point of laser templating and detailed CAD drawings if you then cut the granite worktops manually? Not at Stone Masters. We have a fully automatic saw that cuts the drawings you've approved followed by Robotic and CNC machinery for any cut-outs and shapes. Our edge polisher is top of the range and can produce many shapes. Finally we have experienced masons for the finishing touches. We have invested heavily to make sure your granite worktops or quartz worktops are the best they can be.
We have country-wide fitting teams who have the experience and work ethic to do a fine job fitting your granite worktops or quartz worktops. Many of our teams have experience from our commercial arm in high profile projects such as flagship buildings for Berkeley Homes where quality is paramount.
