"My builder gave me just 6 choices of granite and was pushing me to choose plain black granite.I found Stone Masters online and ended up with my choice - bright, blue, extremely shiny quartz!..." - Sheryl S., Central London, May 2008
It is well known that worktops are probably the most prominent part of the kitchen, and your choosing stone worktops makes certain of this. Non stone specialists such as builders or even kitchen studios will not... more
The stone pieces are carried into site on specially modified trolleys by the fixing team. Each piece is placed carefully in position on the cabinets. The pieces are nudged together to line up the joint correctly and then levelled. The joint is filled with stone resin which dries quickly allowing the stone pieces to be secured to the cabinets using silicone glue. Any up-stands and other features are fitted last. The granite must be allowed to setfor 24hours... more
Gone are the days of a tradesman turning up to your doorstep with sheets of wood from which they replicate your worktops at your house to guide their manufacturing. The process normally takes up to 90 minutes.
Stone Masters prefers technology of photo electronic templating where we place markers on your kitchen units, take various photos, and then use our software to make an accurate CAD drawing of your kitchen.
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.
