What to look for when choosing quartz and granite worktops

In Granite Worktops, Quartz Worktops by dawn

Customers prefer to buy granite and quartz stone worktops mainly because they want the best. There are however, a few points that potential purchasers of kitchen or bathroom worktops in quartz or granite should always demand from a supplier.

First of all, it is important that customers are able to choose from the widest choice of colours. Quartz, because it is engineered with a small quantity of epoxy resin to become cimstone quartz, should be available in a vast range of pre-determined colours and shades. Granite meanwhile, although its palette is more limited because it comes straight out of the ground, should be sourced from a variety of locations in order to give the customers the widest selection of light and dark colours and shades, including creams, pinks, greys and blacks.

Secondly, when it comes to bathroom and kitchen granite worktops, only the finest grades of granite should be made available. Granite, being a natural substance, can vary considerably in quality. Not only can this affect the aesthetic qualities of a worktop, it can also increase the chances of damage occurring in the future.

Thirdly, it is essential that the installation is carried out by skilled fitters. This will guarantee a perfect fit and ensure that no chips or cracks occur during either transportation or installation. Unlike some other suppliers we only use fitters who are registered members of the Guild of Master Craftsmen.

A reputable supplier will also offer help in other important ways; by, for example, sending out samples.
