MATERIALS, CRAFTSMANSHIP, SUPPORT AND MORE – THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN CHOOSING A GRANITE WORKTOP COMPANY



Deciding to install a granite worktop is often a lot easier than choosing which granite worktop company you're going to employ for the job. From selecting the precise colour and style of stone you're going to use to fitting, finishing and aftercare, installing a granite worktop in your home has more in common with an artistic pursuit than a kitchen fit. Therefore, it is important to take your time when deciding which company to trust.

This article will help you to make an informed choice and end up with the kitchen worktop you dreamed of in the first place.

Materials
Chances are, part of your decision to buy a granite worktop came from seeing the results, either in a friend or family member's kitchen or on a photograph from a website or brochure. It is, of course, impossible to match the exact piece you've seen, but a decent granite worktop company will have a large enough range for you to find something that matches your taste. Granite can be found in every shade from white through to black, and can take on a natural golden, silver, green, blue or red hue.

Ideally, the granite worktop company you choose will allow you to order samples or visit the stone supplier in person and hand-select the piece for your home.

Craftsmanship
A whole lot more goes into installing a granite worktop than any other surface, and it is highly advisable that you opt for a granite worktop company that offers installation, and can provide evidence of their craftsmanship.

For a start, granite is very heavy so the strength needed to move the worktop pieces around is often enough to rule it out as a DIY project. Then there's the levelling, the cutting of holes for your sink and hob, the securing and the all-important cleaning, polishing and sealing. There might also be extra support work needed (e.g. for fitting worktops over gaps). That's just for a basic installation; if you want special features such as drainage grooves or angled, bevelled edges, you need to make sure your chosen granite worktop company is up to the task. Most companies will have a section on their website where you can view past projects.

Support
A reputable granite worktop company will also know how to treat you as a customer, and not be looking for a quick sale. Be wary of firms that have a single page website with only a mobile number for contact. An established and respected company should have plenty of testimonials and case studies to show you.

Most serious granite workshop companies will also offer you a free no-obligation quote and have a customer support number where you can ask all the questions you need to. One such company is Middlesex Marble who you can find by clicking here.
