Quartz surfaces are also called many different names: composite stones, engineered stones, man-made stones. We use these different names interchangeably throughout the website. Quartz Surfaces are natural in the sense that they are 93% made up of quartz, which is the natural mineral that gives granite its hardness. The remaining 7% is a safe but strong glue which binds the quartz crystals together. This mixture of quartz and glue is put under heat and pressure... more
Your base units must be in position and securely fixed to the wall. All the units need to be level on the top and end panels must be fixed to the units.
Once we have taken measurements, it is critical that nothing is moved. If the units are removed from position, it renders our template useless and we would have to visit the site again for new measurements. Wall unit positions are important to us if there is say a piece of... more
The good news is that the lead time for stone worktops is normally considerably shorter than for ordering the main kitchen furniture! Both of these options mean that there is no delay once the template has been taken and approval of our drawings received. You can have your worktops within 8 days of the template date. Minimum requirement: The base units need to be in the correct position and secured to the wall. Any end panel or other... 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.
