With acrylic material we offer two types of upstand, usually at 50mm – 75mm high. You can choose from square upstands that sit at a 90 degree angle to the worktops or coved which curve up the wall for a more seamless look. Again you can choose how high you want these.

A full template & the installation will be included in the price of you quotation. We will use high grade materials to make a template of your kitchen carcass and use this to fabricate the stone so you get a bespoke fit. We highly recommend your existing worktops are removed prior to template and any under mount sinks to be in place as well as any new taps or hobs to be on site so we can template for any cut-outs.

Again, a full template & install will be included in your quote and to get a true template we do advise existing worktops are removed. We do not need any sinks to be in place although any appliances, sinks & taps should be on site for template.

We advise that you do not change the design of your kitchen or any cut-outs after the point of template. If you do this will result in a re-template which will be chargeable.

We can also offer all types of Granite & marble. As these are natural we cannot guarantee that these will not stain as the raw material is porous. We offer all quartz with a stain protection.

Acrylic

All our acrylic is again non-porous and is very resistant to stains or surface water. To clean our worktops we suggest a mild detergent or hot soapy water. This is the only maintenance usually required. For more stubborn marks or spillages try Cif or equivalent. You can also use Bar Keepers Friend for oil and grease marks. Always read the label on cleaning products to check for suitability with materials.

Although we use this highest grade materials we recommend always using a buffer between a hot pan and the worktops to avoid the stone being shocked. You are able to have pan bars rebated into the worktop or just use moveable pan bars or chopping boards.

Acrylic
Avoid placing anything hot directly onto the worktops as this will damage the material. Always use pan bars or trivets to protect your Acrylic worktop.
